SPHINX was designed for licensed producers (cultivators) to address the unique air quality needs of the grow market. Our custom grow market filtration helps remove heavy odors, control powdery mildew and mold, and protect crop yield.
Perfect for terpene, and odorous gas removal, patented SPHINX Odor Max media is the ideal solution for odor control in indoor cultivation facilities. Unlike activated carbon, SPHINX Odor Max media lasts 2 times longer and filters 99.9% of odorous gases from grow houses, including thiols and aldehydes. It also has an oxidizing agent that helps minimize mold and powdery mildew growth, thus protecting your plants and yield. You truly do get broad spectrum removal of odorous gases and contaminants.
Maximize your yield and provide customers with a high-quality product by ensuring healthy plants free from mold and mildew. SPHINX makes this possible by inhibiting mold and powdery growth on the patented media, thus preventing the spores from entering back into the air stream. Unlike activated carbon our media kills 99.9% of powdery mildew spores on contact, so they won’t be re-released. SPHINX media maximizes your yield by helping to ensure a healthy harvest.
When one of the largest grow houses in the world drastically scaled production, the odors emitted became more pronounced. Once complaints began to pour in from the neighboring community they knew they had to make changes to their air filtration.
To solve their issue, the SPHINX system was deployed and the impact was felt immediately as individual gas concentrations dropped well below detectable levels. SPHINX has proven to be the ideal partner for them and others due to their solution being engineered specifically for grow houses.
CUSTOMIZED ODOR BLEND FOR GROW HOUSE OPERATIONS
When you need broader removal capacity than carbon alone, turn to SPHINX Odor Max, a specially engineered patented media blend that lasts 2X longer than carbon. It permanently removes the odors and gases that carbon can’t, providing a more complete odor control solution. This is done through chemisorption, a process that chemically transforms gases into harmless solids that remain trapped inside the media.

Ideal for high concentrations of gases. Provides 90%+ removal efficiency in makeup and recirculation air handling units. Features low bypass and a highcapacity design. Works with a variety of SPHINX medias.
Made of extruded monolithic blocks, consisting of many small parallel cells or channels. Supplies a large amount of chemical filtration with minimal pressure drop. Works in a variety of HVAC systems.
An air purification system that filters room air to maintain low odor levels in agricultural facilities. With two separate passes of media, you get more targeted gas removal. Ranges from 500-4,000CFM. Can hold up to 400 lbs. of media for a longer filter life.
Modular system design features insulated double-walled construction. Can also be used as a filter in a recirculation application. Larger solution for heavy odor removal. Tracked for MediaPAK™ modules, which allows for easy replacement. Airflows of 250-50,000 CFM.
We tested the performance of our product against the leading value-tier brand canister carbon filter used in grow houses for terpene odor removal to prove our increased performance.
Purafil traveled across North America to collect gas samples from multiple grow house facilities. Once we had this data, we compared it to odor thresholds to see what would be detectable to the human nose.
Driven by community complaints, local governments are having conversations about new regulations that require large-scale grow facilities to implement more effective odor mitigation plans.
Purafil’s SPHINX line offers media and filter solutions for grow houses. Purafil has been innovating new medias, filters, equipment and monitoring solutions for 50 years, making it a trusted partner for protecting communities from toxic gases and odors released by water treatment facilities while ensuring productivity at manufacturing plants and indoor grow houses. With the introduction of the SPHINX brand, we will now be able to better serve the growing agricultural market. Purafil’s solutions truly are making the world safer, healthier and more productive.
