CarboAir 100 - The Highest Powered Carbon Filter Available
CarboAir Carbon Filters are also available in 50mm, 65mm, 75mm and 100mm bed depths
The 100mm CarboAir Filters are the ultimate level of filtration, designed to tackle huge volumes of air and high levels of odour, and essentially double filter your air before it leaves your grow space. If you want to rest easy that no smells will exit, this is the absolute pinnacle of extraction filter technology. They are built to the exacting standards of Systemair - makers of the ever dependable RVK fans and industry leading Revolution fans. CarboAir utilises coarser, incredibly high quality carbon in thicker beds, no other competing carbon filter give you the option of such a great contact time whist still giving your fan optimum airflow.

Airflow rates are a very important part of your grow room set-up and warrant serious consideration. If too much 'drag' is caused by the filter, your extraction system won't work to its full potential: you'll move less air through the grow space, temps will rise and CO2 levels won't be replenished adequately, slowing down the process of photosynthesis and limiting plant growth. Maintaining a solid environment is easily the quickest route to successful growing.
Why Do I Need a Carbon Filter?
The extractor fan in your grow room removes hot, stale air and excess moisture from your grow room, which in turn draws fresh air in, controlling the environment and replacing CO2. If you're growing plants that have strong, unwanted odours, you're going to need to filter this air first before ducting it to an outside point. Your carbon filter attaches to your extractor fan - air gets sucked through an outer layer of mesh and through an internal layer of carbon before passing through your extraction system. It then leaves clean and free of any odours, keeping unwanted smells locked firmly inside the grow space.
CarboAir 50, 60, 65, 75 and 100? What's the Difference?
Like other carbon filters out there, CarboAirs are available in sizes that match 4 inch, 5 inch, 6 inch, 8 inch, 10 inch, 12 and 14 inch ducting. However, unlike other filter brands, CarboAirs are available with different depths of carbon.
CarboAir 50s come with shorter bodies that are perfectly matched to lower output fans, like RVK A1s, making them perfect for smaller spaces. These filters destroy smells without compromising air flow rates.
CarboAir 60 / 65
CarboAir 60s are ideal matches for fans with greater airflow ratings. Many plant strains can produce smells that are incredibly difficult to control - CarboAir 60s were engineered to provide an extra level of protection and deliver complete peace of mind to the grower. Perfect for medium sized grow spaces.
CarboAir 75 / 100
Strictly for the hardcore - these filters are designed to tackle extremely large volumes of air and extremely high odour levels, making them the perfect match for the most powerful fans on the market. Growers who operate on a large scale or want to double filter their air before it leaves the room will benefit the most from these super-thick filters. You'll need high pressure levels in your fan to deal with a CarboAir 100, but what you're getting is a filter that's built to handle the most demanding environments possible with ease.
