Which Size Kit Do I Need for My Grow Tent?
Find out the volume of your grow space in cubic metres: width x length x height = volume
For example: 1.2m x 1.2m x 2.0m = 2.88m3
You'll need to have the capacity to replace this volume of air once per minute. Multiply the volume figure by sixty to work out the airflow needed per hour.
2.88m3 x 60 = 172.80m3
Carbon filters add some extra load to your fan. To account for this, multiply the required airflow by 1.2, which will give you some spare capacity.
172.80m3 x 1.2 = 207.36m3
Note that it is always better to over-spec your fan and regulate it with a controller. This gives you the flexibility to increase output levels if temperatures rise.

How the RVK Fan & Rhino Hobby Filter Extraction Kit Works
Our RVK & Rhino Hobby Extraction Kit contains everything you need to remove stale air and odours from your grow room or grow tent. All the parts are top-quality and matched to work together perfectly. Systemair RVK fans are notoriously well-made and reliable and Rhino Hobby Filters are easily the best budget carbon filters around, though it must be noted that they will remain effective for roughly half the time of the Rhino Pro, at around 9 – 12 months. A fast clamp makes easy work of joining the fan and filter together while five metres of ducting and a duct clip allow you to vent to a convenient outlet. A power cable with a moulded mains plug for the extraction fan completes the set-up.
How to Use the RVK Fan & Rhino Hobby Filter Extraction Kit
Check out the following blog post for a visual guide to installing extraction systems. Note that this kit includes a fast clamp, so the method of joining up the fan and filter is slightly different in this case.
Make sure that you hang the system at the top of your grow area (to remove hot air) and make sure that ducting leads to an outside point. Keep ducting runs as short as possible, as every extra metre of ducting reduces the maximum flow-rate. Try not to include sharp bends in the layout of your ducting or you will reduce the effectiveness of your system.
Every 8-12 weeks the duct-coupler at one end and the bottom at the other end need to be swapped over. This evens out the wear at each end of the filter. If the ends are not changed every 8-12 weeks then the Rhino Hobby carbon filter will not last the full 9-12 months expected lifespan.
