Cooling fans for "fanning"
    #3185972 - 09/27/04 01:10 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I've been reading through gobs and gobs of threads lately and I ran across an interesting idea that someone had about using 2 cpu case fans to circulate air in a terrarium. I like this idea because with the use of a timer, one wouldn't have to rely on fanning the terrarium all the time.

Here's my question: Would this be a poor form of fanning for contam reasons? I'm worried about the fans blowing "bad" air into the terrarium. (although I can't see how fanning with the top is any better)

Any input on this topic would be greatly appreciated.

you could always blow the air out and have a polfilled hole on the other side to bring air in. It seems like a less chance for contams. And also you only need one fan.

If I had one fan blowing in and one blowing out wouldn't that circulate better?

Thanks for the polyfill idea. That would filter SOME of the air anyway. Any more input would be good.

later

rig up a hepa filter for your air circulation.

yeah but i wouldnt want too much air coming in because humdity could drop because it drying out the chamber. the one fan will blow out the co2 and fresh air will get pulled in.
I have a question for you, how do you get power to your fans, computer power supply?

I was just going to get a converter or get a really junk power supply from a buddy of mine that has that stuff just sitting around his room.

I would only run it for a sort amount of time right before my ultrasonic kicks in. That way any humidity that is lost will quickly be replenished.

I would have to run the terrarium with this setup without any shrooms in it for awhile to get the humidity correct.

btw, this is out of pure curiousity. If I'm going to spend the money on fan(s), I want to make sure it isn't a bad idea first because my setup works fine the way it is. I just think it would be cool to have a fully automated setup where I only have to check it once a day or so.

Thanks for the help.
