I've been reading around and finding all sorts of "portable" mining containers that claim to work perfectly. Various cooling systems with under pressure and over pressure and so on.
But none of them seem to make use of systems to maintain proper air quality. Now, I am no expert but when I look at the mollier diagram I can clearly see a problem during winter, pulling in dry air creating a static electricity problem. Most of the time they don't even have a proper dust filter..

So my question; all those simple big fan cooled containers, do they even work? Or are they hiding their cooling systems engineering?,

im curious if some of you have ever seen one of those things in action!

It's just a boxed in miner, done wrong imo. You should have larger intake and then use the own miner's fan to push to air out through a sound proof exhaust tube, but not too long. The only reason to do this is for sound proofing, it's not deployment friendly, might as well just get quiet hardware if you're just starting out.

If you have a large enough intake you could filter it, but typically anything you put that will actually filter dust or anything will have too much air arrestance. If the intake was many many time the size of the exhaust fan, the whole thing would take a lot of space. If its filtered and/or too small the fan will be fighting too much negative pressure and the miner won't cool much.

These guys mine in containers successfully therefore I doubt static electricity has been a problem.

Humidity is obviously different in every location and its the buyers responsibility to figure out their environment. Mining anywhere that you have to artificially add humidity is going to be a bad idea in general.

Stop buying industrial miners, running them at home, and then complaining about the noise.
