Flow hood question
« on: May 14, 2009, 10:30:12 AM »

Hi, I'm new to this board and I have a question:


After losing a few cultures to contamination...I've decided to invest in building a small flow hood.

I found a 12" x 12" HEPA Filter, and according to the guide here:

area of the filter (1ft^2) x 100 ft/min (the required air speed) =

the required air my blower has to deliver against 1"(250 Pa) of static pressure (my filter has a static pressure of .8" and the pre-filter has a static pressure of .2") is 100 cfm ( or 170 m^3/h )


So I need a blower that outputs at least 100 cfm at 250 Pa of static pressure...

I found one here on ebay for a pretty low price.

Will this get the job done?
