We take every computer & keyboard outside, clean & dust out using one of these.
Our cleaners then clean all the desks, mice and screens (all glass fronted) and we put back and image the PC's every summer.
September - each dept gets a bill for damages / replacements.
Seems to work for us........

We have been looking at something, due to the high cost of cans. One question though, what's the quietest one?
We do have one but its very noisy!

Clarke Shh Air are very quiet, but they obviously come at a bit of a premium price.

Probably had it for 2 years of regular use, if people have had issues with them I would imagine they are using them for too long as like all compressors etc they do have a duty cycle of how long you should use them for.

We've had our datavac over a year and it's seen some *really* heavy use. No problems at all. It even feels unlikely to fail, like it's carved from a lead block.

What about water vapour being created?
Is this syphoned off by a filter as I seem to remember when using and designing compressed air systems for pneumatic equipment that we had to fit a hydro-vane system with a separate air dryer unit with filtration system.
Obviously it was on a large scale but all the same water vapour is produced when creating compressed air as is the nature of the element "H2O" water has to go somewhere

You can get a compressor and Airbrush, the sort used for spaying cars etc. for between £35-£50 on ebay. These should be fine for blowing the rubbish out of a PC.

What sort of pressure is 'safe' to use on these things, without causing damage? I'm looking at this one which was linked to. 05295 - SIP - AIR COMPRESSOR, 6L | CPC&

That one is noisy as hell.
We have one for our laser cutter and it's in its own cupboard.

- Rep Power
I use the full 120psi at around 25cm range. Done quite a few now and no problems yet.

Any other suggestions on what compressor, not looking to pay a fortune.

Just fyi school insurers love pressure vessels. Not. So be careful.

Would something like a football pump work, with the attachment changed obviously, and be more safe? http://www.prodirectsoccer.com/mobil...cts/20914.aspx
