Filter disks
    #1768942 - 08/01/03 12:41 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

Can filter paper (paper used in filtering liquid solutions) be used in place of synthetic or tyvek filter material to provide air exchange?

The only paper my friend has tried were coffee filters, and they weren't nearly as effective as polyfill or Tyvek.

Coffee or other types of paper filters don't work well. They sop up moisture and provide a ready conduit for any contamination vector that gets on the wet spot. Tyvek is cheap (free?), easy to find, and remarkably effective at allowing gas exchange while blocking contamination. Why not use it?

I live in the UK. I've had trouble finding reasonably priced tyvek; if anyone knows any cheap sources, please post.

...Have you tried postal services / shipping services?  I dunno what it's like in the UK, but I imagine they use tyvek envelopes too.  :smile:
