How to hang up and are you supposed to remove the white outer layer of a carbonfilter?
    #650751 - 12/12/12 04:25 PM (3 years, 11 months ago)

Just bought one of these:
http://www.hydroponics.eu/canlite-carbon-filter-425m3h-flange-12-5cm~9462.html

Didn't get any manual with it.

I didn't know if I should remove the white on the outside.
But I did.. I figured it's just to protect it while it's packaged so it don't get damaged.
And all pictures I see of carbon filters never have something like that on the outside.
Also wasn't able to find any holes or anything to hang it up with.

But when I removed the white outer layer I still couldn't see any way of hanging it up?

Also now that I removed the white outer layer..
If a shake the carbon filter lots of super tiny black thing fall from it.. I figure it's some kind of chemical that cleans the air that passes through?
But that's what made me worried that I maybe shouldn't of removed the white outer layer?

So yeah.. summed up:

1. How to hang it up?
2. Should I have removed the white outer layer?

Don't understand why they don't give manuals.

No the white layer is a dust filter.  Keep it on.  What's falling out is the charcoal.  Don't shake it.



It should have some with some sort of mounting hardware.  If not you're going to need to jimmy rig it up with chains and what not.

Going to buy some chains tomorrow :thumbup:

The white thing your talking about is kind of a fabric right?

yeah.. I'm not good at fabrics etc what kinds there are like silk etc but I would take a bet that it's cotton.

K, it's more than likely a synthetic in all honesty.

Hmm, synthetic?
Not sure what that is.

Also, I just had a thought.. maybe it should be removed?
Because one of the ends of the carbonfilter is sealed..
I guess you might be able to remove that end..
but I'm not sure if you should?
it's not a very friendly way of removing that lid which makes me think it should remain sealed.

So maybe it "inhales" the air to filter through the sides (the sides that the white outer layer is ontop of)?
I guess it can inhale through that layer too though.

What do you think?

Yes dude, leave it on.  Of course one end is sealed, the air gets pulled in through the sides and passes through the charcoal.

god damn its hard to hang it up.. got chains now but i dont get how I'm supposed to hold it up while tying up the chains at each side.. only got 2 hands.

And I dont really wanna bring someone over to hold it for me so they also see my grow room.. that's how a lot of people get caught.

The youtube videos I seen them hang it up it was always 2 guys helping each other hanging it up.

Gonna smoke a bowl now to relax because this is really frustrating hah
:tongue:

So solved that problem with pulleys that make it simple.
But I changed my mind on how to hang it up because it wouldn't work.

I will use the pulleys for the cooltube and just "static" chains for the carbon filter.

But here's my new problem:



That is a picture of the roof of my closet.

The brown is a wooden pillar that is hanging about a feet from the roof.
I attached the pullets to it (red dots) that I will hang the cooltube to.

The blue circle is where I have attempted to drill a hole with both a normal drill and a hammer drill.. Very powerful machines that couldn't get further than about 1 cm.

My plan was to place hookes there that I can hang the carbonfilter to with chains.

But it seems I can't get far enough in with the drill so scratch that idea.

I don't think it would work by hanging it on the same pillar as the cooltube because the carbonfilter would be pushing the pulleys for the cooltube so it wouldn't be hanging in the middle anymore then.

I really am not sure what to do now.. I can only thing of complex solutions like buying some planks and hammer and nails and a saw.

So I can build another wooden pillar next to the other one.

Just build a small reinforced frame for it.  Not that hard or complex.

I'm almost done with my growroom now :smile:
I wonder if it's ok to have tape connecting the carbonfilter to the vent hose?



You can see there will be a gap between the vent hose and carbonfilter.
I am planing on using tape between them.
Hoping that will be ok?

All I need is a thumb up to give me confidence that I'm not fucking this up :cool:
