Lifespan of vent filters

Lifespan of vent filters

Lifespan of vent filters


Does anyone have a sterile vent filter on any of their vessels vents?

How long do they last until they block-up and what are the inflows and outflows from the tank?

I understand that there are more factors that will affect how quickly the filter would block but I just need a very rough guide.

Thank you.

RE: Lifespan of vent filters

I would replace them annually (semi annually if you have the money) if they sort of sit idle and the vessels aren't in use. Otherwise, I'd replace them after every batch or so to make sure you don't have worries about grow through.
