We stock two brands of 4 inch carbon filters; Rhino in both Pro and Hobby sizes and Prima Klima.

Rhino Pro Filters

In our opinion Rhino Pro filters are the best on the market. Constructed from lightweight aluminium and packed full of premium activated carbon, they are lightweight, easy-to-handle, and do an unparalleled job when it comes to odour control.

Rhino Pro filters use Australian-mined Tiwest RC124 activated carbon which is the purest activated carbon on the market and considered by many to be the best in the world for odour neutralising purposes. This carbon provides superb filtration for two years or more and is extremely effective in both high and low humidity environments.

The 4 inch carbon filter from Rhino Pro is suitable for use with both low-power and high-power fans. It is important that you match the air flow rates of your fans and carbon filters as failing to do so will result in less effective odour control and can dramatically reduce the lifespan of both components.

Prima Klima Filter

Prima Klima filters are made to a very high standard and use a high-grade activated carbon derived from pit coal. This filter has a higher airflow rating than the Rhino's, which is the main reason we list it - there is not price difference between the Rhino Pro and this filter. These filters are supposed to have a shorter lifespan than the Rhino Pro fo around a year, but in real terms you should around 18 months of them.

Technical Specifications

Size: 100mm (4 inch)

Length (excluding flange): 400mm (16 inches)

Airflow: 480 m3/hr

Weight: 4kg

Both out budget and Rhino filters offer fantastic absorption and odour control. We’d always recommend buying the Rhino Pro filters if you can afford the initial outlay as they work out cheaper in the long run, but all three filters are quality products.

Rhino Hobby Filters

Offering probably the best value for money of any carbon filter on the market, these 4 inch filters cost just £24.95. Airflow wise they can clean around the same as the mopre expensive Rhino Pro Filters of the same size, but will only last for around 12 months of normal use. You will need to turn these filters every 3 or 6 months to get the most out of the carbon.

4" Carbon Filters FAQ's:

How Do Carbon Filters Work?

All carbon filters work in a similar way utilising the super adsorbent and high surface area properties of activated carbon. This type of carbon has been oxidised to give it a massive surface area.

To put things in perspective, just one gram of activated carbon has a surface area greater than 500 meters squared and a small five gram piece has roughly the same surface area as a football pitch – so it’s pretty impressive stuff.

It’s these properties along with fantastic adsorption that make carbon filters so effective at odour control, as any odours in the air that flow through the filter are effectively trapped by the activated carbon.
