Flowhood 24x30" have some question
    #25060448 - 03/13/18 12:19 PM (8 months, 29 days ago)

I just build my first flowhood, with which ill start to cultivate oyster mushrooms for some restaurants, i recantly got my Hepa Filter, and bought second heand blower.



I want to know if this pre filter is ok to use ?



This is how it looks the final product, but the blower is giving more air then needed i think.



even my fan controller is working on lowest setting

that prefilter will "work" but the fact is that you don't "need" a prefilter at all. a proper prefilter accomplishes two things. it extends the life of your hepa and restricts air flow by adding static pressure. if you add a furnace filter you will accomplish both.

Will blowing more than needed air be problem ?

I guess the speed controller is not working correct becouse the lowest setting is still to high as you can see in picture with lighter test that i did, i will make my first agar plates in here and will try for myself :smile:)

some say to much air is a problem because it creates turbulance that can pull contaminants in. the folks that make the hoods at fp personally advised me to use stronger cfm than the common knowledge calls for.

if you can spare the plates, just leave three open for about five minutes. one left, one center, one right. if they survive unscathed you have arrived.

Used it for my first time and most of the plates i transfer are clean, but the test one got mold in it ?!

I guess too much air pushing through filer
