Flow hood for mushroom cultivation. What's functional, storable, portable, stealthy, quiet, affordable, and loveable the'little red myco-hood' of course. Keep the whole thing on the top shelf in your closet when not in use and set it up in about 3 minutes.This design works extremely well and is a home mycologists dream. Ample room to work in front of the 15 11/16 x 24 5/8 filter means you won't be waving your hands and tools outside the clean zone as often as you would with a smaller filter surface area. Works exceedingly well for spore work, inoculations including grain to grain, liquid culture work and pouring agar without contaminations. This is the unit that i use and like the best but for those who want more wind speed, a 6 405cfm fan unit can be substituted for about $30, just request in comments. These filters have a 6 month, continuous run rating so it will basically last forever using it sporadically for a few hours at a time. Setup time is about 3 minutes. Your wife/gf/bf/roomate won't mind this nearly as much as the big boxy thing that sounds like a 747 and takes two people to move. Challenge- set it up and put 5 open petris in front of it overnight. This is not a hepa rated filter, this is a merv 16 rated filter. Hepa rated, laminar flow hoods are more expensive and we believe that this unit is more than adequate for most users.
Note: it is essential to store filter in a plastic bag and always face in the same direction when you set it up a kitchen trash bag works great for this and we will soon be offering an all-in-one padded storage case. Failure to store filter in a bag will result in blowing tons of dust that has settled on your filter all over your work surface and we can't have that, right.
