does anyone know about HEPA ceiling units?
    #1914206 - 09/14/03 12:41 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Does anyone know if you can use those HEPA ceiling units in a horizontal position as you would a flowhood? Its seems like you could, but I dont know if there is something special about the fan that might demand a vertical position. Anyone know?

Thanks in advance,
-MM

You could use them in any position.  They are surperior because of their size, which is condiderably thinner than the average flowhood.  My ceiling hepa unit should be in this week and I'll post pics of it
I'm excited  :grin:

Oh cool you did further your project. Last weekend my father and I built a box for my hood. Over the week I found such a deal on a 24" x 18" filter, that we will have to start over. No biggie. Yesterday, I found a high pressure blower at a local science surplus store. I have no idea if it'll work, but it was only $25 and I can return it in 14 days. Hopefully, if my blower is the right size and power, that it will be up and running Monday.

That's what I use for a flowhood. I have had some contam issues, but for the most part it seems to work well. The airflow isn't what a friends hood is, that's for sure. But it's definantly better than pure turbulent flow.

The high pressure blower is a lot like a leaf blower. It doesn't say the CFM; however, it is labeled 8000 Pa (pascal). It's three hundred fifty watts, so it should put out a fair number of CFM. If it is too fast (something I do not expect), I will just add prefilters until I get the desired result. Hopefully, it will be working by next weekend. I guess I shall see. I am still waiting for my filters.

Raadt, did you attach guards on the sides or top to direct flow, or do you have it just sitting horizontally on a table? If you adjusted the form factor, please tell all that you did.
Thanks
