Rhino Pro Carbon Filters
Rhino Pro Carbon Filters are in our opinion the best carbon filters in the UK and continue to be one of our best selling products. Loaded with premium activated carbon to effectively control unwanted organic odours, Rhino's have been helping growers get rid of unwanted smells for over 10 years.
All carbon filters work by moving air over "activated carbon" – a charcoal derivative that has a massive, highly asorbant surface area at the molecular level. As the dirty air is moved through the carbon the carbon holds onto the particles of odour and the air leaving the filter is odourless.
Rhino Filters use the Australian Tiwest RC412 activated carbon, generally agreed to be some of the best in the world for this purpose - it provides excellent filtration for at least two years and remains effective in both high and low humidity.
It is important with all fans and carbon filters to match the airflow rates of both, otherwise the odour control will not be as effective and the lifespan of both components can be reduced.
An excellent product - very highly recommended.
Rhino Filters FAQ's:
Can the Rhino's airflow be used in both directions - pulling air through them and pushing it out? And will that affect the lifespan of the filter in any way?
Yes - the Rhino's can be used to both pull and push airflow over the carbon, The lack of prefilter when using the filter in reverse may shorten the lifespan slightly but not significantly.
How do they compare to other carbon filters on the market.
We've sold Rhino's since the brand was born and have no plans to change - there are other good quality filters out there but in our opinion nothing that actually betters the Rhino.
Do you have any technical data on airflow?
Yes, here are some numbers:-
|Filter Size||Air Volume||Fan Type|
|100 x 300||350 m3/hr||4" A1/L1 fan|
|125 x 300||500 m3/hr||5" Al/L1 fan|
|150 x 300||600m3/hr||6" A1 fan|
|150 x 600||900m3/hr||6" L1 fan|
|200 x 400||800m3/hr||8" A1 fan|
|200 x 600||1125m3/hr||8" L1 fan|
|250 x 600||1420m3/hr||10" A1/L1 fan|
|250 x 1000||1900m3/hr||10" A1/L1 fan|
|315 x 600||2440m3/hr||12" A1 / L1 fan|
|315 x 1000||3250m3/hr||12" L1 fan|
Just bear in mind as with all quoted airflows the amount of air that actually gets extracted through the filter depends on allot of factors - the power of the fan, the amount and type of ducting, the length of the ducting etc...
