Carbon Scrubber for 449 CFM???

  1. Greetings,

    I read a DIY on building my own scrubber with activated carbon strips (16x 24in). However, the author made it on a 4in ducting, and cut the thing to 8x24in.

    I have a 6in inline vortex fan that pushes 449cfm. I have a variable speed router adjuster on the fan, but it seems to make a lot of noise on the lower speeds for some reason.

    I'm not even sure I really want it too low, because i have a 600watt hps bulb in my tiny space. My temps currently are about 78, I assume as the weather gets colder, so will my sub basement and then i can turn the fan speed back some.

    So...

    I made a 6in carbon scrubber with 2 strips of the 16x24 to compensate for size. It seems that the air is moving too fast through that thing to really do anything...

    I don't mind paying money for one if it will get rid of the smells. I'm only 4 weeks into veg and its a pretty strong odor already...

    Any help/recommendations is greatly appreciated.
