Would this work? A HEPA filter ventilation question.
    #5010570 - 12/03/05 02:57 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

I've got a clean room (sort of). It is a room, split into two rooms by a framed 2x4 wall covered in plastic. It has a 2'x4' Hepa filter and fan (one piece) framed into it. It looks something like this:


Considering that the only living things in my house breathe oxygen and expell carbon dioxide, and that it is now winter, so I don't exactly get a lot of fresh air, I thought I might need to create some fresh oxygen.

Therefore I am going to grow some... plants. I am going to grow them in stealth closet. Any overgrowers on here probably know what the C13 cabinet is. Right now it looks like this:


Because it doesn't have this in it:


The closet is supposed to pull air out of the top via a centrifugal fan. The air enters the closet via 5 2" double bent pvc elbows. I thought that if I attached a duct from the HEPA filter on my cleanroom wall to the top of my c13 cabinet, I could pull warm, oxygen-rich air from the c13 into my cleanroom. I realize I will have to remove the duct from the HEPA filter to get a laminar flow to work under.

I am worried that since I have my HEPA filter's fan on 24/7, that the fan may be overworked trying to pull air through only 5 2" pvc tubes and then through a duct (although a wide and short one).

Will this work? What do you think?

The fan will work fine. I question how much "oxygen-rich" air you'll actually be pulling--you'll need a good numnber of plants to achieve a high concentration of oxygen. Have you found that your shrooms' growth is stunted? I don't really see the need for this elaborate setup, though it's cool how you're linking hobbies. :wink:

In any case, the fan won't be over-stressed by pulling air through narrow passageways.
