Our 6 inch carbon filters are suited to a variety of growing needs and budgets. We stock two brands of carbon filter here at Green’s; the great value Prima Klima filters and the market leading high performance Rhino Pro filters.

Rhino Pro Filter

Rhino Pro carbon filters offer extremely effective odour control and an unparalleled lifespan. Utilising premium Australian-mine Tiwest RC124 carbon (the purest activated carbon in the world), the 6 inch carbon filters from Rhino Ventilation provide excellent odour control in both high and low humidity environments.

There are two types of 6 inch carbon filter available in our Rhino Pro range, one designed for use with low-power fans and one designed for use with high-power fans. Make sure you carefully match your fan and filter as failure to do so will result in less effective odour control and can dramatically reduce the lifespan of each component.

Prima Klima Filter

Our budget 6 inch carbon filters come from German manufacturer Prima Klima. One is suitable for use with low-power fans and one for high power. Although labelled a ‘budget’ filter, the Prima Klima filters are effective as well as being friendly on your wallet. Both 6 inch filters use high-grade carbon derived from pit coal.

The main difference between these budget filters and the Rhino Pro range is longevity. Prima Klima filters will need to be replaced around every nine to twelve months, whereas the Rhino Pros are designed to offer excellent filtration for at least two years, often longer.

6" Carbon Filter FAQ's:

How Do Carbon Filters Work?

All carbon filters work by utilising a special type of oxidised carbon called ‘activated carbon.’ The oxidisation process gives the carbon super adsorbent properties by creating a massive surface area.

The surface area of just a single gram of activated carbon is huge (in excess of 500 metres squared). To put that in perspective, a five gram piece would have roughly the same surface area as a football pitch.

With a surface area this big, activated carbon works excellently at trapping and neutralising all unwanted odours in the air flowing through the filter, perfect for growers looking to get rid of the smell of pungent plants.
