Now to the nitty gritty..
VK-100 Extractor fan
100mm, 4" dia spigots (tip): Will fit directly to the ducting supplied for odour free ventilation.
250 m3/hour airflow rate powered with a centrifugal impeller and 80w German motor (tip): centrifugal fans are the best for carbon filters as they have the best airflow rates and suck very well through the filter. However, still expect up to a 20% reduction in performance from this kit depending on your duct length and run.
46 dB(A) sound level at 3m (tip): this will sound quite loud if not connected to the ducting and filter provided, centrifugal fans NEED some resistance (ducting & filter) to work properly. Always remember to get your set up right before addressing sound issues.
This fan does NOT come with a UK plug or lead (tip): This is because a lot of customers are connecting fans to existing controllers or vent systems. All you need is a 3amp uk plug and minimum 2-core lighting flex 0.75mm dia. You do not need 3-core cable as this fan is double insulated and earth is not required.
Buddy Products BEF-100-300 Carbon Filter
Selected especially to work with the VK-100 extractor fan for 100% odour removal if you follow a few basic rules:
Generally, your Buddy Filter should be mounted directly to ducting or to an exhaust/extract fan. Your airflow should pass over the pre-filter, activated carbon and then through the centre of the filter and out through your fan.
Remember, if you reverse-mount your Buddy Filter you will lose the benefit of your pre-filter and reduce the life of the carbon.
Always mount your buddy filter as high as possible. Hot air naturally rises and so will your odours!
Try not to block too much of the filter with mounting straps or hanging devices. Use the ends of the filter to support, so not to inhibit the surface area of the filter.
Do not mount your Buddy Filter near to humidifiers. Humid air over 85% may enter the filter rendering the activated carbon ineffective and your filter may NOT neutralise odours!
Ensure you have an airtight seal around the connection of your filter to ducting or extractor fan.
Do not use your filter if it is damaged in anyway.
DUCTING AND THE REST OF THE KIT
102mm, 4" dia foil ducting 5m long (tip): The ducting will fit over the spigots of the fan and filter, use the clips and duct tape provided to enure odour free ventilation.
VOC free and non combustible (tip): Our ducting will not set fire as it holds BS certification. It is also low VOC (volatile organic compounds) so when heated by lighting, it wont give off poisonous voc's like formaldehyde that harm plants.
Rust free duct clips and duct tape: (tip): we supply high quality stainless steel clips that are rust free, also we've chucked in a free roll of tape for a leak free peace of mind :)
