and i forgot, your main question was about filterd air?
as i said i've only got basic filtration and it seems o.k.
i reckon (only a guess tho') that with the air recirculation and as long as your not filthy (i don't have lab' sterility, but i'm not REALLY a pig either) contamination is not that big an issue???

My new digs aren't set up yet... and I have no digital camera. But this is what I'm doing.

Ultrasonic ($40), several sterilite containers ($6 ea.), hepa filtered air circulation and exchange, and water heat.

My plan is to heat through tubing buried in the bottom casing layer, by modifying a plastic cooler with a submersible tank heater 300w ($40) and a submersible pump ($17). The water is heated then the pump circulates the water through a manifold with small valves to control heat in individual containers.

I haven't found a suitable air plenum yet, but I can just build one from plexi. if I have too. I'm also going to add a float valve to my humidifier which will be connected to the house plumbing with an icemaker plumbing kit, no more re-filling, yay!

As far as heat goes, I used a seed tray heater for one sterilite box. But I didn't want to buy a heater for each box when I expand, so I came up with the water heat thing to make the system modular, like the humidifier setups you may be familiar with.

I figure that it'll take a few days to get the adjustments right and I'll be up and running in 2 weeks.

Now thatz a phattie lil' setup rght there. Cool..Cool..So what u'r sayin' is that excess moisture settles in the pvc tubing then? And you don't have contamination problems, i.e the humidified air isn't fitered? Or is it?... Also using external heat control?

Thanx, ....Any more info and pix would be much appreciated Guys & Gals

the water can not settle in the frame because it is separate from the humidification line. The 4 way pvc was sealed to let the air-entrapment line go directly to the chamber from the humidifier. and yes AFOAF plans on H2O2 but is not using it yet.

Technical questions for mcman....

What brand of cool mist does the mc use?
Is it sealed perfectly, with a filter disk for air intake?

The dome part is acrylic correct? How about the actual body of the thing, like the bottom piece where the glovebox holes are/ incubating tray, etc.? Fiberglass?

Is a fan used in addition to the coolmist? What type? What CFM? Is it on continuously?

Does your system use a thermostat or whatever the equivalent is for humidity (sorry my mind is drawing a blank on the name...)? If not, how is the temperature adjusted? By adjusting the submersible heater in the reservoir?

Sorry for all the questions...

a friend has an ultrasonic but it seems to put out too much humidity to run nonstop or even at some intervals. Do you have a timer on your humidifier or how do you work it in your machine, a mixing chamber?

Just out of curiosity, when the sales people ask what this is, what should I say? I just don't want to sound suspicious, so I figure its a good idea to have an explanation :smile:

Parts List based on picture:
2x 5 Gallon Plastic Buckets with Lids
Clear Flexible Acrylic Plexiglass
[note: how do you secure the plexi to the buckets? rivets? pvc glue?]
Cool Mist Humidifier
about 3 feet of pvc pipe
a pvc T junction for each bucket
etc.
etc.

Shouldn't be too....specially with mcman here to answer our questions ;)

Heh heh McMan.. Reminds me of this time I was 15 or 16, went to Home Depot with a couple friends, we were in search of bong fixin's. We didn't feel like spending half the day wandering around looking for the plumbing section to get the pipes, so we asked this employee in his mid 20's where it was. He lead us there, turned to us and said out of the blue "Here you are, by the way if you're planning on using this stuff to make a pipe or bong DON'T use copper, it gives off poisonous fumes when heated!" and with a curt nod he was gone, leaving us both suprised and appreciative. Needless to say none of us knew this and we were probably spared some amount of lung damage later that night! You think they don't know? They know. ;)
