VIVOSUN Carbon Filter Product Review

The Vivosun Carbon Filter provides high-quality ventilation as the air-borne pathogens are kept out of the grow room, promoting the healthiest environment for your plants.

Similar to other models, the Vivosun 6″ Carbon filter also comes with a pre-filter unit. This pre-filter unit will make sure that the air passing through the filter gets thoroughly cleaned.

The carbon charcoal used in this filter is commonly used in most filters. A unique attribute of this device is that the company Vivosun claims that its device will filter 100% of airflow.

Having a reversible flange means that there are two ways you can use this carbon filter. We also like this 6″ inch carbon filter because it provides great value for the cost and a long two-year lifespan.

Keep in mind, this Vivosun carbon filter requires regular cleaning. Stay up to date with the maintenance to keep your filter in top shape.

The Filter is made of imported Virgin Australian activated charcoal that delivers 100% filtered airflow. The activated charcoal allows each magnetically charged molecule to attract passing molecules, whether they’re impurities or odors.

The 1050+ RC 48 carbon captures three times more air contaminants than average due to the optimal surface area per carbon particle.

This Carbon Filter is incredibly good at protecting the rest of the home from chemical irritants and pungent indoor grow operations. The Carbon Filter’s body is made from galvanized steel and high-quality charcoal, therefore it will work effectively as an exhaust carbon filter or an intake filter.

Also included in the package is a changeable velcro pre-filter and carbon filter belts. This carbon filter also includes a pre-filter wrapped around the unit that ensures the air passing through the unit is properly cleaned. This helps to prolong the usability of the charcoal inside the unit. Additionally, the pre-filter helps to prolong the usable life of the carbon charcoal inside the unit.

The reversible filter flange and base work together to provide a longer lifespan and the inner and outer mesh provides a 53% open area for increased airflow.

Overall, the build quality of this filter is very high and Vivosun includes all the straps that are required to mount the filter, as well as the convenient pre-filter.

With regards to the smell, it’s hard to beat this! If you’re worried about the smell, you should absolutely opt for this 6-inch carbon filter to make sure the aromatic smells from your grow don’t bother anybody!
