Does anyone know what size most of them are in microns? I can get ahold of some filter material from 250 microns to 1 micron, and was wanting to check.

For what use? You'll have to let us know if you're trying to filter air in the clean room, the grow chamber or jars. But, to answer the question, most contaminant spores are > 1 micron.

Then allow me to recommend the synthetic filter disks. You can get them from our sponsor sporeworks, or fungi.com The filter disks can be used and reused hundreds of times. I have yet to throw one away after hundreds of uses.

I can get an unlimited supply of this stuff. So thats why i asked. I use tyvek now. I noticed if you use the envelope kind, I have to double layer it.
