How the Red Scorpion Carbon Filter Works:
Red Scorpion carbon filters are designed specifically for cleaning and de-odourising air (not liquids). Stale air is drawn through the filter by means of an attached extractor fan (not included) which needs to be matched to the filter being used in terms of air-flow and duct-size. The air is drawn in through the outside of the drum and first passes through a washable dust sleeve which filters out dust and other large particles so that they do not clog the main filter part. Next, the air flows through a short spiral labyrinth which is tightly packed with the world’s highest quality virgin activated carbon – Australian RC412. As the air flows through the activated carbon layer, odours and particles are absorbed into its pores leaving the air clean and odourless. Inside the can, the air is spun by the vortex cone in the base. This helps create low pressure within the can and thereby increases and evens out the air flow. The cleaned air is then ducted out via your extractor fan.
Note: Red Scorpion filters must be matched to the fan that they are being used with in terms of the diameter of the venting and the air flow rate. If the air-flow rate of the fan is too high for the filter then the air will flow through it too quickly to be cleaned properly. Also, if the vent diameters of the fan and the filter are different then it will not be possible to connect them without the use of a ducting reducer or enlarger.
Note: Moisture degrades the performance of carbon filters. High humidity makes them ineffective at eliminating smells and reduces the expected life-span by a significant amount. Try to keep humidity at a reasonable level (between 40% and 60%) and both your carbon filter and your plants will benefit.
Note: We recommend replacing outer 'Pre-Filter' sleeve every 9-12months for maximum life span of your filter!
