FlowHood (easy built)
    #3570135 - 01/02/05 06:56 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Just goes to show you it can be done - with time, patience, watching eBay like a hawk & a few simple tools.

Dextron aluminum case w/internal fan built in (eBay under $100)
24x6X48 inch 99.97 Hepa filter (eBay $110)

Built in calibrated rheaostat fan speed control.

A few trips to HomeDepot & Lowes for leg material & 3/16th inch hard face formica type kitchen paneling(Home Depot & Lowes will cut panels to size for free). Some drill, assembly, silicone seal & calibration time.
:thumbup:
Bingo -- end result under $250 is this:

Big enough to fit a AA 941, sealer, bags, casings or whatever in & still have some work area to spare: :wink:

Agar I love your posts. If someone were to not have the time and/or space or tools to put a flowhood together themself, but some cash lying around $1000-1500, any suggestions on where a quality hood could be purchased...
Thanks mushymark

Watch eBay like a HAWK. Factory laminar flowhoods are found there, sometimes for CHEAP (shipping is the BIG BITCH because of SIZE & WEIGHT).

If you have table space to set one on & use it. You have room to build it. The only tools it took were: drill & bits, mider box & saw, screw driver & caulking gun. Lowes will cut the panels for free.

12X12X24 inch 99.97 Hepa filters can be found CHEAP (sometimes) on eBay.


That is half the size of the one pictured.Used furnace type squirrel cage fans can be had for a few bucks @ any furnace and/or Air Con repair place.

Rheostat control for fan speed can be had at any electrical supply. It took less than 2 hours to construct, once all the parts were on the floor.

:wink:

What are the dimensions of the aluminum case?
How tall is it?
How big is the "box"
How big is the square box with the hole on top?
What's the size of the hole on top?
Did you cut a hole in the front of the aluminum case?
Can you post some pics showing the whole thing finished?

Nice job agar.  You did near exact same thing I did.  And for a steal just like mine.  :wink:

Dexon is also the company that made my "aluminium case", yours looks like a drop in panel for the ceiling in a clean room.

In regards to the size of the squirrel cage blower, would you decide how much cfs you would need by measuring the cf of the plenum chamber?
-thanks and what a great idea for an inexpensive flow hood!

So you don't need to block the front at all to end contamination? The process of clean air coming in only one way is enough to satisify a zero contatination rate? Is this the ultimate glove box so to speak?
