    We use a high power air compressor that the design technology department has from teaching pneumatics. this means we do take them down to clean, but the very strong air leaves the projector spotless, use this for computers too.

    We use one of these. Works well, I just wish the charge lasted longer than it does when using it.

    We use one of these as well. I tend to take the hoover and a small paint brush with me when cleaning filters.

    Well it seems that both options are viable but I'm still undecided on whether to get a vacuum or a duster. All the projector manuals say to use a vacuum but then people seem to be getting on fine with compressed air. A tough decision.

    Compressed air has disadvantages:-

    The dust ends up in the air (and your lungs)
    It can be blown deeper into the projector
    If using cans, the propellent is flammable (unplug before squirting)
    It is possible, I've done it, to blow big holes in the filter

    All that said, it is what I use!

    have a vacuum pointed at where the dust is expected to exit that way most of it ends up in the vacuum

    I'm going with a vacuum, it just seems to make more sense. Thanks for all the help guys!

    if it's called DataVAC would you not expect it to suck?

    What you using to clean the keyboards LocalZ, sounds like a pita task to me, but one I may indulge in.
