Redneck Flowhood

1 post in this topic



so here is my first attempt at making a flowhood. i bought 18x24 honeywell furnace filters and built the box to fit. the filters are a little smaller than like 17 7/8x23 3/4 or something close to that. i cut 4- 1x1 at 23 7/8" for the top and 4- 20 7/8" for the sides, you have to add 3" to either the top or the sides for  the 1x1s. each 1x1 is 1 1/2" and you have 2 so you will need to add 3" for the filters to fit. my frame was pretty much 24wx18hx16d. on the left side, top, and bottom of the box i added another 1x1 to the front of the box so that 2 filters can fit. i also measured with width of the 2 filters and put 4 blocks in place to keep the filters from moving. used a piece of lath around the front to keep the filters from falling out. i cut the right side of the plywood about 8" wide so i could take it off and replace the filters, i will tape the crap out of this area to keep it as air tight as possible. i couldn't think of any other way to replace the filters so i cut one side so i could get inside to the filters. the siliconed all of the seams inside and out.


i am using a 6" inline fan that i found on ebay for less than $90 with shipping, a tjernlund 530cfm from saveonhvac ebay vendor. i have used one of these in my bloom room for at least 4 years and the baby is still going. great inline for the the price.


i am using honeywell 18x24 furnace filters, rated 10fpr and 12merv, i got them at home depot for $17.


i am not an hvac guy and i don't know how this will work out, keeping my fingers crossed that it does the job. thoughts or questions?

      Hey I found some of these telephone brand packets in an Asian market yesterday. They advertise as 25g but when I weighed it they come to a measly 17g, just fyi Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

      The tyvek envelopes are the same thickness as the tyvek house-wrap used for waterproofing buildings. The suit tyvek works but it is extremely flimsy and a major pain to work with. I would suggest having a member from the USA send you some envelopes, or do some research to find out what grade or thickness of tyvek is used for house-wrap and buy it online. Your most economical option is probably to ask someone to send you envelopes. Good luck! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

      Dam. I've never seen it in cool sheets like that. I'm not sure. I would imagine it's all the same but I know the envelopes I use are very different to the suits other people use.

      Hey mushmouth, thanks for the input here, guessing the tyvek will give me more options regarding jar opening size as I can cut to fit? I can definitely get hold of Ball jars. Are these sources good on the Tyvek front, is this the stuff I'm after?? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Tyvek-Fabric-by-the-metre/dp/B00JBBOAM8/ref=pd_sim_201_3?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=DS324T5MT3YHYRRFS1CJ http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tyvek-Fabric-Pack-of-10-A4-sheets-Tyvek-Fabric-43-gsm-/272517007214?hash=item3f7347876e:g:YDwAAOxy7vJTdTXn

      Yes, sounds like you know what I'm talking about. Its actually "Earthwalkers mini a/b" from over at the nexus, and it works wonders for cleaning up acacia extractions.    Yes, I would try to break it down somehow then do some freeze thaws. Then while its in the strong basic soup use something like a potato masher to break it down further. You just want to be able to lyse all the cells to retrieve all the goodies, if you don't get it broke down enough you may not get it all out. There's nothing wrong with letting it soak in the soup for a day or 2 to break down either, the longer, then the further it'll break down.
