The Carbon Filter Experiment Postmortem

Damaged active carbon filter

So apparently it's a really bad idea to use aluminum mesh as a container for active carbon! After sitting around for a couple weeks the aluminum screen became extremely brittle after reacting with the active carbon and the whole thing sorta fell apart. I'm going to probably be replacing the mesh cage with a basket made from perforated stainless steal when I've got some free time, after the Kansas City Maker Faire most likely.

    Surely some helpful set of tips. Its alywas advisable to do some research and then buy a product online. As there are new promotions and offers coming out everyday, the best its better to look out for them.Also, shipping charges are an important factor to watch out for. Some sites have a heavy discount on the product but they compensate by adding a bulky shipping cost to it.
