casing air exchange rig up
    #4729509 - 09/29/05 04:00 AM (11 years, 2 months ago)

I'm planning on 4 large rubbermaid straw/wbs casings. For air exchange I dont really want to fuck with a cool mist humid but wondering about a fan setup. what if I built a box with a fan inside with a hepa filter for air to enter the box? Then garden hose or some sort of vinyl tubing maybe from the side of the box the fan is pushing the air and set it all on a timer. I could put at least 4 tubes coming off this and a well sealed box would push enough air in several minutes as fanning would do. The tubing would enter the rubbermaides near the top at a sealed hole. This would help alot for automation.

You should look into a much more simple setup... the "double tub".

yes that will work for ya but you are going to be forcing alot of dry air into the chamber that way. the air boxes i have and have seen have been for air pumps to run wands under the geolite/hydroton/perlite giving air exchange along with humidity. i am thinking you may have trouble with your rH if you go with something like that.

I guess i forgot to add that the casings are straight in the rubbermaides(shroomgods straw tek). THey are directly in there not in seperate containers inside the large rubbermaid. There will be no perlite as the casings create their own humidity. But i was wondering if I created a tub in tub with water in the bottom tub with a fish tank heater for temp and ran the tubing into the water in the bottom tub would the fresh oxygen come up through the holes in the top tub to exchange air. Or would i still need to do a method i originally described. Also I realize it would be a lot of stale air entering but the fan would be set low enough to allow a lower air flow rate.

You are really complicating things dude. Try the Double Tub instead. No air pumps, no fans, virtually no fanning needed.
