    You can get compressed air in a can that will do the trick.

    compressed air in a tin is best. try not go down the path of using a compressor. moisture builds up and can be blown out thus damaging computer components

    Thanks for reply guys,

    We are already using compressed air in a can. I m trying to find air compressor rather than using can ones to save our budget. I thought that if I find an air compressor less than 50 psi could be solution.

    we use a normal compressor....

    also instead of blowing out the dust have you considered sucking it in?

    Maybe a handheld vacuum would be a little more lung friendly?

    I use a small thing that is powered by 4 AA batteries and has a little brush thing on the end. We bought them from CPC a few years ago... 'bout a fiver each!

    This isn't it, but looks useful for onder!

    In my experience of these mini vacuum things they are useful for cleaning generic case dust, but don't have the pressure to clean fans, filters, etc.

    They can brush the dust off though and not as much loose dust gets in your face.

    we did an experiment... with sucker on and with sucker off... on won hands down

    Get yourself one of these beauties and the 5 piece accessories kit under related items.

    The accessories kit includes an air gun for cleaning and a tyre inflator just incase one of the little darling gives you a flat. Not sure if the cleaning gun will be suitable for electronic components, might be something to check out.

    Not sure i understand the budget issues. you must be doing an awful lot of cleaning up if going thru compressed air cannisters is tearing a hole in you're budget.

    Could you not see if your DT/Art Department has a compressor you can borrow. With regards to water build up in the cylinder. I'm sure there's usually a drain valve...just drain it regularly.
