Indoor Grow HouseCANADIAN GROW HOUSE
CONTROLS ODOR WITH SPHINX

An expanding grow operation in New Brunswick was experiencing odor problems and sought out SPHINX to help control odors being released from their facility. While odor inside the indoor grow house wasn’t a concern, the owners were worried about odors being exhausted out through their HVAC system into the surrounding community.

They had tried competing carbon-only filters, but they were failing after a few weeks. SPHINX and our local distributor worked with the business to provide a customized solution for this application. We used SPHINX’s custom odor control media, which is engineered to remove a broader range of odors from grow house environments.

SPHINX MEDIA ADVANTAGE

CUSTOMIZED BLENDS FOR GROW HOUSE OPERATIONS

When you need broader removal capacity than carbon alone, turn to Purafil’s specially engineered patented media blends. They permanently remove the odors and gases that carbon can’t, providing a more complete odor control solution. This is done through chemisorption, a process that chemically transforms gases into harmless solids that remain trapped inside the media.
