    Electric Compressed Air in a Can

    ThinkGeek :: Hurricane 2 Canless Air System
    Industrial Canless Air System - Canned Air and Air Duster Alternative | 200+ MPH



    Looks cool and better than those pre-packaged compressed air cans. Now I just need to get one of my schools to agree to buy one.

    It does look good, although the reviews on Amazon's website say it isn't as powerful as regular compressed air cans.

    Oooh, nice. We use a mains air blower:

    DataVac® - Electric Computer Duster Computer, 3 lbs, White - Sold As 1 Each - Blows clean, dry filtered air; safe for all computer and electronic equipment.: Amazon.co.uk: Office Products
    It's amazing, the only real drawback is the cord (however it's bloody long thankfully) but we'd not go back to air in cans! It's far more powerful than those.

    I'm sure I must have an old diving cylinder around somewhere and an SMB air gun, around 10 bar should be enough for most things.

    The industrial one Amazon.com: Canless Air System O2 Hurricane Industrial Unit: Camera & Photo seems a bit better review wise.

    We use a 4 bar air brush compressor kit. Works a treat on PC's and projectors. Cost us £90 from Amazon, but with the amount of use it's had since June it's been well worth it. Not yet managed to get a CPU out of the socket with it though,
