?s about micron filters and weather strip
    #2145701 - 11/30/03 03:28 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I want to build a glove box to help me fight off contams that have been plaguing me. I'm curious about the micron filters I have. I've got a choice of three to use. I've got the 70 mm synthetic micron filter disks, those really thin ones that are a lot wider, and the filter patches off the bags. I also want to use a piece of plexi glass instead of the rubbermaid tubs own lid. I plan on using weather strip (like the stuff from cars or something similar.) Here are my concerns;

1) I'm really concerned about using the thin ones or the filter patches for my work, but at the same time i'm worried that the 70 mm filter disks won't allow enough air to flow in at once causing my fan to blow. which filter would be best to use?

2) If I used a lot of C-clamps to firmly fasten the plexi glass to the top of the tub, will weather strip allow air through it? if so, is there anything better that you guys like to use for a good seal?

if you don't have a true hepa filter then imho you'd be better off not using a fan. all its gonna do is blow contams around. you'd do better with a still air enviorment

Are there small hepa filters I could use? Where would I find them?

I really don't want to use a still air environment. After searching around the forum for glove box teks, I think I'd feel more comforatable having a hepa filter for my box.

What I don't understand though, is how positive pressure glove boxes work. Am I supposed to make the glove box airtight, or shoudl I create holes to allow some air out?
