How do carbon filter hook up to air system?
    #133667 - 10/17/08 11:40 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

I am trying to figure out how you are supposed to ventilate a system properly and maintain no odors for the neighbors to smell.

I was wanting to have an air cooled light, say a project-X reflector with a 600 watt HPS bulb. When I look at pictures of the carbon filters they look like they go at the beginning of the vent system, not inline. There looks like only 1 outlet. Is there a good diagram someone can show me?

You can put the filter at the end of the line or at the biginning of the line.

You hook it to the beginning of the ducting. Scrubber---> fan ---> lights ---> outside.

That way if there are any leaks in the ducting system, clean air is pushed out, not stank air.

i was thinking about going through my bedroom wall with ducting and exhausting air into a storage closet on the outside.  This will also allow me to mount my fan in there as opposed to inside my grow tent which will surely dampen the noise level of the fan too.  Is it OK to set up the exhaust system this way? 
Carbon filter > light > ducting through the wall (2' max) > 4" Vortex on the outside

or does it have to be between the filter and lights to achieve proper cooling of the HPS?

I don't like to have my fan and scrubber separated by lights because if you were to have an air leak, the stinky air would be pulled in and would never get a chance to be scrubbed. If you plan to mount your fan remotely, why not put the scrubber at the very end of the line, after the fan?

Originally that was my idea.  I was going to duct from the light, out and through the wall, with the fan between the lights and the scrubber.  Will this method prevent possible air leaks from causing a problem?

I imagine stinky air being pulled out of the tent and through the ducting will be a possible air leak odor problem...idk :sad: I just want to put the fan in the closet on the outside.  Would I be better suited to attach the scrubber behind the light inside the tent and duct to the fan remotely?
