Collecting, venting or controlling smoke

I have a 6 inch fan that runs quiet and slow. It will go faster, with a filter on the front of the fan and have it pull air in, a white filter that is denser then fiberglass. Would this be good enough to scrub or clean the soot from the air with out venting out a window. It would be used to clean candle soot and smoke from different photography projects. I can put about a 3 inch vent tube out the wall which seems the right way. But I think one of the newer white filters would also clean it out of the air. I am at that point of the light frame on the ceiling where I should consider this before the lights. Any body who has tried this kind of smoke control, your ideas would be most welcome.

Re: Collecting, venting or controlling smoke

A filter might catch any soot in the air, but won't remove the products of combustion - gasses. I'm sure that there will not be a very high quantity and you won't be setting any world records for how many candles you can have burning, but if you can vent through the wall you could make something like a cooker hood or fume cupboard to draw everything out of the room. I think the improvised cooker hood will do the job and will allow the maximum flexibility in the photographic area.

Re: Collecting, venting or controlling smoke

The vent in very tempting. My working space from center to the wall is 5 feet. ( I really should learn European numbers ). As I was reading your post i thought of another use as this is in the middle back side of my light rack. Hot lights could be vented and heat removed. I'm pretty handy with house style work and putting in ideas in order will work for me. I do work on some of the older lensesI have, a vent would help also to keep dust at a low side. Graham thanks for the reply, you lite a flame

If you do go for an external vent don't forget to put in a non-return valve to prevent blow-back, and a grid on the outlet to prevent critters gaining access!
