Pressure Box design ?
    #3652098 - 01/20/05 05:04 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I'm designing a similar pressure box to this one I found on the nook.  **FM's Pressure box**

I found this air purifier at big lots for $33, couldn't pass up the bargain. Will this work for my idea.  Honeywell Enviracaire Platinum Air Purifier - 40200
The air clean air blows all around the purifier so I thought I would make something that will come out of it sealed into the box.

Ive drawn up a sketch on how I want to go about this...and there are also photos of the purifier box that shows direction of air flow.
My drawings

Can it be done... and would there be a problem with too much pressure going into the box?

I read on a post that it also helps to position the airflow into the box from the top or the bottom, something about co2 being heavier than air. Cant find the link.

Thank you much for the help :mushroom2:

thanks for the reply but I have read all the glove box teks on nans nook, including pressure boxes and flow hoods.
I have settled on making that Air purifier work but I bought the smaller one and can set the larger one just to filter the air in the small bathroom I call my lab. Maybe overkill maybe not.

I also found the post that referred to the best direction for air flow to come into the box. from above to push heavy co2 out, does this make any sense?

I still have a couple of questions that go un answered.
1. The air purifier I am using is not TRUE hepa (I called their CS to find out) I am going to make some type of output hose from it to the box. Should I buy a Smaller true hepa filter to put on the inside of the box to further filter the air? (I think this is over kill because a dust mask will work so why not this... but if it needs to be done I will do it of course.)
2. What is too much pressure?
FM's design has 2 computer fans on top of the hepa filter ... too much? I think the air purifier itself may be too much pressure if anything.
3. Gloves or no gloves?
I was thinking maybe just something that will drape over the holes like plastic... is this necessary?

Thanks for the help... much is needed :grin:

Oh #%$^&@!!
I saw a post about a plant heating mat being about 85 degrees.
It's not! I tried putting my fresh karo jars in the box on top of the mat... Too HOT!
try putting socks under the box... still too hot. And that was there all night. *%$#%@

Did I kill the karo experiment?
