    Another thought

    If one were to double up two computer fans would it double or at least increase the cfm? They would be placed front to back to allow the air to flow fluently.

    Re: Homemade Carbon Filter

    The carbon that your needing to use will have to be "Active Carbon." If you've ever bought a filter you'll remember that the filters are sealed in bags. This is because active carbon will keep cleaning air until they're no good. When they're not in use you'll have to seal the filter in a heavy air tight bag.

    EXAMPLE - An auto body painter wears a resperator when he/she's painting. The carbon filters will clean the air. When they can smell the fumes they know they need new filters. When the resperator isn't being used it's in a sealed bag so it stops cleaning the air.

    Use the right carbon!!! You'll need ACTIVE CARBON.
    What grows up must be cut down.... and smoked!!!

    2footx3foot of chicken wire
    2x cooker hood crbon filter pads from any good hardware store
    grease filter paper usually comes in a kit with the filter pads
    duct tape
    large needle and thread

    ok first off you are going to decide on the size you want!!?

    then you are going to gut the chicken wire into a square that masures 2 x 2 feet
    now roll the cicken wire into a cylinder the size of your fan eg 100mm=4inch
    then tie or bend over the ends of the wire locking it in place,if you like you can thread the edge
    now roll the carbon filter pads around the wire tubeand use the needle and thread to sew it up

    ok now u have a wire mesh tube with the carbon pads wraped around it

    take the other pad and cut a circle out of it
    this will be used as the end of the tube sew it up as before
    ok now use the tape to wrap around the end of the tube that will be connected to your fan which will give a nice seel

    ok now take the grease filter paper and do the same thing the paper will act as the dust filter and the carbon will remove odors
    after u have applied the paper u will want to use duct tape to seel the edges of all joins.!!!!

    easy ay and will only cost around £10-15 hope this helps ya all!!!!!!!!
    I think I'm going to have to give this a go. Will fit my budget nicely
    Thanks mate!

    Re: Homemade Carbon Filter

    I've had this done for a little while now but I'm getting close to the installation so I wanted to put these up first. I'm also going to deconstruct only the fans because upon buying new ones for the intake, I discovered that the two new fans were 85cfm. The fans on the filter now are only 65cfm so I'm going to change the 65's to the intake and use the 85's for the filter.

    It's 1' 1.5" long and I used a 4"-5" adapter to create the shape.
