Cheap Alternative for Carbon Filter?
    #225910 - 05/13/09 03:08 PM (7 years, 6 months ago)

I've been looking at them and they ae so damn expensive. I'm thinkin of a little expriment.

Does anyone think this would work as a cheap alternative. It's only for a small box 2 x 2.5 x 4 with a PK 125.

Anyway here the shopping list:

Welded filter bag 5"

Activated Carbon

Simple process... fill the bag with carbon, attach it to ducting/fan. any comments on this will be greatly appreciated. Do you guys think it will work?

Also does anyone know what that purigen stuff is on the second link?? Could that possibly work better than carbon, or is carbon the best for odours?

I figured that purigen may just be good for filtering impurities out of water and is probably no good for odours, but worth asking in case anyone has tried it.

I figured the bag would just be easier than building a cage to hold the carbon.

I believe the bags are 180 microns so could possibly be used as a first bag for some bubble hash maybe?? then just buy some smaller silk screen to filter out the water from the hash. I think maybe check out the size of these bags first.

I've just had a look at that matrixcarbon stuff on the Seachem website. It says it's macroporous which appears to be better suited to water filtration, while Microporous carbon is better suited to air filtration.

Does anyone think this will be an issue? I hear a lot of other people use fish tank carbon, i just don't want to buy carbon that's not going to work.

well carbon is carbon and it will work just probably not nearly as good as micropouros carbon...... because the air you want to filter has small particles in it floating around that will be able to be filtered out throught small holes....water that is filtered through carbon doesnt need holes as small because the water in a dirty fish tank that needs filtering has bigger particles than dirty air so it doesnt need small pours, plus it probably wouldnt be able to flow properly.....if you used macroporous carbon it wont catch as much as its supposed to because of the pours being bigger....example: its kinda like trying to strain speghetti throught a strainer with holes that are 1 inch big (the speghetti being the dirty air and the strainer being macroporous carbon).....its possible .....its just that alot of the speghetti will fall throught the holes back into the pot....if you see what i mean....

Ah thank you for the advice. I may have to go with a budget filter i found. Better to spend £45 on somethin that works than £20 on somethin that doesn't and have to buy the budget filter anyway.
