The U-GO Filter utilises advanced technology and high-quality materials to ensure superior air purification in your grow room. Here’s a detailed look at how it works, what makes it special, and why it’s an essential tool for hydroponic growers.

Premium Carbon Filtration

The U-GO Filter uses only the top 20% of carbon sourced from premium all-natural carbon sources. This high-quality carbon undergoes rigorous batch testing before selection for its superior properties. The carbon particles have pro-grade size 4/8 specifications, ensuring optimal airflow and minimal dust. This precise particle size is crucial for effective filtration and maintaining high airflow rates.

Effective Odor Control

The primary function of the U-GO Filter is to remove unwanted odours from your grow room. It’s able to tackle odours such as fertilisers, fruits, and other plant-related volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and neutralise them effectively. The filter achieves this by adsorbing these molecules onto the carbon surface. The U-GO Filter meets stringent air stream tests, with a minimum butane absorption rate of 20%, typically achieving 24% or more. This high absorption capacity ensures the elimination of even the most stubborn odours.

Durable and Lightweight Design

The U-GO Filter features a lightweight, thin canister design, making it less restrictive and more efficient. The canister consists of an aluminium top and base and a galvanised wire mesh, providing durability and longevity. This robust construction ensures that the filter can handle the demands of continuous use in a hydroponic environment.

Long-Lasting Performance

One of the standout features of the U-GO Filter is its extended lifespan. Under conditions of less than 60% humidity, the filter can last up to three years. In environments with higher humidity, the expected lifespan is up to two years. This long-lasting performance makes the U-GO Filter a cost-effective choice for maintaining clean air in your grow room.

Easy Installation and Maintenance

The filter comes with D-shackles for secure mounting, ensuring stability and ease of installation. This user-friendly design allows you to set up and maintain the filter with minimal effort, providing continuous, reliable odour control.

Integrating the U-GO Filter into your hydroponic setup is straightforward and ensures your grow room maintains clean, odour-free air. Here’s a detailed guide on how to use the product effectively.

Unpacking and Preparing the Filter

First, unpack your filter carefully and ensure you have all the necessary components. You should have the filter, D-shackles for mounting, and the instruction manual. Inspect the filter for any damage that may have occurred during shipping.

Choosing the Right Size

Select the appropriate carbon filter for your grow room based on the size and airflow requirements. The filter sizes range from 6″ to 12.5″, with airflow capacities from 595m3/h to 3910m3/h. Choose a filter that matches your ventilation system to ensure optimal performance.

Installing the Filter

Mount the filter securely using the included D-shackles. Attach the D-shackles to the mounting points on the filter and then to a stable part of your grow room structure. Position the filter so that it is connected to your exhaust fan, ensuring the extracted air passes through the carbon filter before being vented outside.

Connecting to the Ventilation System

Connect the filter to your ventilation system. Ensure the filter is tightly secured to the exhaust fan using appropriate ducting. This arrangement allows the fan to pull air through the filter, effectively removing odours and contaminants before the air is exhausted.

Regular Maintenance

Perform regular maintenance checks to ensure your carbon filter continues to operate effectively. Periodically inspect the filter for dust buildup and clean the exterior if necessary. Check the mounting points and D-shackles to ensure they remain secure and stable.

Monitoring Filter Performance

Keep an eye on the performance of your filter. If you notice a decrease in airflow or an increase in odours, replace the filter. The expected lifespan is up to three years in environments below 60% humidity and up to two years in higher humidity conditions. Find out more about the U-GO brand by visiting their website here.

Are Activated Carbon Filters worth it?

Absolutely. Activated carbon filters are essential for maintaining a clean and odour-free grow room. They effectively remove unwanted odours, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and other contaminants. This feature ensures a healthier environment for your plants and a more pleasant space for you to work in.

How long do Activated Carbon Filters last?

The lifecycle of an activated carbon filter depends on the humidity levels in your grow room. U-GO Carbon Filters can last up to three years in environments with less than 60% humidity. In higher humidity conditions, they typically last up to two years. Regular maintenance and monitoring can help maximise their lifespan.

How does adding a Carbon Filter to my Ventilation setup affect the Airflow requirements of my grow tent?

Adding a carbon filter to your ventilation setup slightly reduces airflow due to the resistance created by the filter. To compensate, ensure your exhaust fan has sufficient capacity to handle this reduction. For example, if your filter reduces airflow by 20%, your fan should have at least 20% more capacity than required without the filter.

How do I choose the right size Carbon Filter for my grow room?

To choose the right size carbon filter, consider the size of your grow room and the airflow rate of your exhaust fan. The U-GO Carbon Filters come in various sizes, from 6″ to 12.5″, with different airflow capacities. Match the filter’s capacity to your fan’s output to ensure efficient odour removal and optimal performance.
