AeroBlock™ In-Line filters fit 1/4" or 3/8" air-lines to prevent contamination of nutrient reservoirs from air-borne bacteria, fungi, and their spores.
Unfiltered air pumps contaminate reservoirs within hours of use, requiring more frequent use of oxidizers, regular reservoir change-outs, and the belief that low nutrient/water temperatures are required for propagation.
Until publishing AeroBlock™ we DID NOT recommend air-pumps in aeroponic systems because aeration contaminates the systems within hours. With aeroblock filters, we can now promote the benefits of warmer propagation temperatures and system aeration.
Benefits of AeroBlock™ filters:
Positive flow of filtered air through all gaps and spaces in your hydroponic or cloning systems while maximizing oxygenation.
Evacuate ethylene gas, known to slow rooting and cause plant senescence (deterioration).
Allow the use of ideal propagation temperature, which are species dependent. (Cannabis likes 77 - 87 °F (26 - 30 °C)
PermaClone™ collars' design allows air-flow upwards across your cuttings due to the way the collars are shaped and cuttings placement.
1 - 2 filters per 5 gallons of reservoir.
Change-out of every 4 - 6 months.
Utilize high pressure/high output air pumps.
Expect a reduction in airflow due to back-pressure.
Visible debris on the filters' in-let side indicates the need for a change-out or reduced air flow.
Max Operating Pressure: 20 psi
Max Temp: 140 °F (60 °C)
AeroBlock™ Filters improve performance for all hydroponic systems including Aeroponics, Deep water culture, Recirculating Deep Water Culture, Ebb-and-Flow system, Aquaponics, Aquaculture.
