what do you think of this venting idea

Unread postby redwing_al » Fri Dec 19, 2014 1:56 am

Just wondering what everyone thinks of this vent design? I can get a 8" in-line fan and craft this design out of some odd's and ends from my house and local hardware. Is my design flawed? Any suggestions?

how are you going to get the water out of the air? you need a condenser. I seem to remember a post on here somewhere (or possibly on the HBT BM thread?) where someone had a condenser on their exhaust fan over a BM20...?

Where is the air going? Not everything the ventilator removes is water vapor!

Or is it one big balloon instead of piping? :lol:

I was hoping to catch most of the moisture in something that I could empty and let the air pass through. the idea would be ot minimize moisture, not elminate. Maybe there is no real way to do this.

I suppose if you had a long length of ducting and a big enough fan, the water would condense inside the ducting, you could then collect the water by having it run down the inside of the ducting to a collection point.
To brew or not to brew, that would be a stupid question !
