Rvk 150l1 @720M3/HR),
Rhino Pro 150 x 600 Filter,

This is my kit.
Can i put a reducer on the filter and run a rvk200l1 1008m3/HR
On a fan controller twin and put the 720 on my intake?

Will it be toomuch for the filter?
Will the fan whine like a bitch to slow down?

Temps are 23c. There fine but hope it would reduce noise or the fans while increasing my intake as the 6inch430 doesnt even blow across my tent floor

150 x 600 filter=900m3/hr according to Rhino , but for single pass smell filtering you generally want half that rating.
Try to get the biggest filter and ducting you can in the tent, then pick a motor to run it. Thats going to reduce noise/ smell more than anything
In other words, get a bigger filter, then ducting before you get a bigger motor. Thats where you need to put your money.

I got loada fans lol
But if i increse the intske the out doesnt stay neg.
The filter i have is huge as fk as it is lol few bends so reductions in play too

Its a 430 6inch a1 in
730 6inch l1 out. Filter to match.

Thort id be ok runnin the bigger 1 at 80% max and the 730 in

1008 ran at 80max is 803. But when it slows down would it render fsn useless as ive seen before

I just use two 8" round passive ducts, rater than a single input with a blower. Too much work to tune two fans, regulate the input temp/humidity from the source of air. Way too hard to adjust for an unexpected spike, vs a twist of the dial.

In Winter, they get put up high, Summer they stay on the floor.
You cant squeeze all that air thru the same size hole efficiently, then it won't circulate properly and sounds like a turbine.

As a scrubber (multi pass) you can exceed the filters CFM. If you are exhausting single pass then you don't want to exceed the filter CFM.

Some filters give both CFM #'s multi and single pass.

Should be the other way around. If you run higher speed than specs on filter you will leach out more carbon.

I have a 206CFM fan exhausting a small 2'x4'x5' (30cuft) tent and though the large negative pressure is desirable, and the temps are good because of it my RH is always quite low (like 30% or less).

I stuck my head in there and zipped it closed pretty tight and fuck there is a lot of air flow being sucked out of the tent.
