I want to make a small air filter using standard axial pc fans in order to suck smoke like that have been produced in soldering process.
But I assume filtering will make it difficult. Am i wrong? The air have to be forced through the granulated carbon filter.
I researched about radial fans which produced spesifically for this job(suction), but they have disadvantages like price, vibration and noise. They are at least 60dba. May not suitable to be used in room.
My main purpose is increasing suction of air, not the air flow. I can go with minor flow. (if my expression is not true please correct)
The question is, can a group of fan in same direction, increase the suction of air? Can it force the air to pass through carbon filter about 1-2cm thickness?
