clean room
    #3585204 - 01/05/05 06:55 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Does anyone have any ideas on a 4 ft x 5 ft clean room. It would need some sort of filtration system, and it would need to be completely sealed. Thanks for any help.

The reason for this is because my grow room is in the basement and is too dirty.

Thanks a lot Yidaki. These are excellent plans with good pictures. It also looks inexpensive which is what I need.

a proper filtered clean room - or hepa filter set up is a very expensive thing.
Your better off just making a good glove box. Cheaper and works fine - ive used one and rarely get contaminants even on agar.

Yea, if you don't already own a flowhood or even a glovebox, I wouldn't bother with a clean room.


First things first.

I think he wants to actually grow in the room, not just work with jars. For that he would need a bigger space than a glovebox can offer. And actually, building a frame out of 8mil sheeting and 1x2s isn't expensive at all. It would probably cost as much to build the clean room they described in the PDF as it would to build a flowhood. The bigger question is does he have enough space? Apparently he does...

A question about that PDF though... I noticed that they put the filter in the room and circulate the air inside to clean it. I was wondering if anybody thought it would be better to put the filter on the outside pushing air into the room creating a positive pressure? just a thought.

Best way for filtered air exchange in a TIGHT clean room, or grow room is POSITIVE PRESSURE. Meaning, pump in hepa filtered air in a volume much larger than the outlet. Which creates mild positive pressure. Enough that nothing wisps in, except what you carry on you.

that's what I thought. Hey, do you think it's possible to make an inflatable clean room? I'm assuming that it would all depend on the size of any openings. This is an idea i've been kicking around. I just don't know if the filter/fan is strong enough to keep it inflated. Especially once you enter and exit the sucker.

I know that there are existing inflatable "glass houses". But the pump air between to sheet's of plastic and not directly into the room.

I wouldn't recommned anything under 99.97 and would say 99.99 is a much better idea and usually doesn't even cost more.
