carbon scrubber

Hey guys. I'm starting to get a lot of smell going in my apartment and am going to build a carbon scrubber. The problem I'm having is that I need to keep the air going through ducts once it is clean. I'm growing in a walk in closet and the hot air needs to get ALL THE WAY out of the closet or I run into heat problems. Any idea how I can basically build an inline carbon scrubber? All the plans I've found just dump the air in and let it come out the bottom but mine needs to go further...

Let me get this straight. How do you currently get the air out of your closet? Do you have any pictures?
As for an inline scrubber, I would just say have the carbon inside the long tubing you're using to route the hot air out...

Right now there is about 10 feet of 6" flex ducting that goes from my box to the door and out.

I understand your theory about having the carbon side i'm just trying to figure out HOW. The hardest part I'm thinking is how do i keep the carbon spread over the entire surface of the tubing when it is going horizontal and having to fight gravity...

I would just cover the end of the tubing with a few layers of the carbon and tape/staple it on....

it pulls the air already through an aircooled hood but that is a possibility

I haven't tried this, but I probably will soon....
Cut 2 circles of window screen a little bigger in diameter than your vent hose, lay one flat on the table, pour on a layer of activated charcoal. Top it with the other screen and staple or sew top screen to bottom screen.
Rig this up inside the opening of your vent hose, it should work... someone correct me if I'm wrong. :D
I love this place!
