Flow hood help
    #24178430 - 03/20/17 06:52 PM (6 days, 17 hours ago)

I just got my flow hood and I did the lighter test and 6 inches apart and the flame blows away  and I have a slight dead spot. What can I do!?!? Should I be worried?

Ask the manufacturer what's up if you didn't build it yourself

Otherwise if you did it yourself try adding prefilter or throttle the blower

I added silicone in top edge. Air was leaking out. I added a prefilter and it seems to work out. No dead space. But arrownd the filter edges there is some turbulence when I do the lighter test.


Soon I will cover the gasket to make it more pretty

that's because it's a flow cabinet not a flow hood. there's going to be turbulence at the edges as the laminar flow and relatively still room air interact

OK. So I shouldn't worry . I will buy the 1900 filter from filtrete. And do agar Petri dish test.

Problem with flow cabinets not a problem with flow hoods

You have a flow cabinet

how did you mount that filter? im a bit confused by it... do you have it glued in or something? is there no trim sandwiching the filter against a furring strip?
