Reversing the flange and base
1. Using a phillips head screwdriver, remove the screws connecting the flange to the filter body. Remove the flange
2. Remove the screws connecting the base to the filter body.
3. Turn the body 180 degrees, reversing the position of the flange and base.
4.Ensuring that the screw holes are aligned with the holes in the filter body,
secure the flange and base in place using the screws
Your Rhino Hobby Filter to use.
To prolong the lifespan of your filter, reverse the flange and base every 3 months.
We Recommend that you change your pre fliter every 3-6 months.
What makes carbon good for air filtration?
Activated carbon is great for extracting organic compounds from the air. Carbon is porous and is constructed of many pores, the bigger the pore size the better the carbon will work. The pore size of RC412 is 0.02 micron which does not sound a lot but in the carbon world it is massive, this makes the carbon very absorbable to organic compounds and attracts organic compounds to the carbon particles like a magnet. The carbon is positively charged which attracts the negatively charged ions in the organic compound (i.e. smells and gases). If you placed enough of this carbon near computer or electrical equipment it would wipe all the data clear. The organic compound basically sticks to the outer edge of the carbon and then because of the pours structure it absorbs it into the centre and locks it there.
What is activated carbon?
Carbon is activated by burning it in an oxygen-depleting atmosphere. Similar to how wood smoulders in a stove when only a small amount of oxygen is present. In a kiln it is similar, but there is much less oxygen and the temperatures are much higher. When the carbon is exposed to these high temperatures in the presence of little oxygen and with excess steam, microscopic pores open up within the carbon. This creates a greater surface area and “charges” the carbon with positive electrons. Pelletized carbon can be re-activated but its efficiency drops to under 50%, The RC412 is a by product burnt coal what makes this carbon better than any other for air filtration is how it burns, some coal will not burn at the same temperature this is because of the source of the coal. Some carbon contains more impurities than others and once burnt still remains unusable for air filtration because the pours size is so small. RC412 burns at such a high temperature that when it is subjected to very low oxygen levels and activated by steam it opens the pores of the carbon and positively charges the carbon. Our 100% virgin carbon is activated in the largest carbon kiln in the southern hemisphere by Tiwest industries Tiwest ensure every batch of RC-412/RC412 carbon is pure and consistent to the highest available standards. The end result is 24 carat carbon ASTM guaranteed.
