Flowhood question
« on: April 18, 2004, 05:18:43 AM »

Hello,

In your flowhood pictorial, if everything is glued, how do you replace the HEPA filter once its life?s over?

Thanks

The life expectancy of a filter if you use the hood for a personal use(a few hours a week) is many, many years.
But even if one was to change the filter, not everything is glued together, so it would be possible to change the filter with some work.

It's dead when no air is blowing through it anymore, or when it has a hole and the contaminants pass through it.

To clean it, you would have build the filter out and  blow filtered air through the filter from the opposite direction to blow the accumulated dust off the inside of the filter.
It would be possible, but I think it?s just too much work.

Hola again,

Is the fan in the pictorial one of those that are used in kitchens to suck all the smoke and are installed on top of the stove?

Gracies.

No, it's a much more powerful one.
You can see the specifications here:
