Try a DataVAC .

Those are an affordable, long term solution. I have one and I love it smile.gif

Wrong. Not all of it blows out and more condenses out every time the pressure drops in the tank.

I have both an air compressor and a DataVac. I much prefer the latter because the air is dry and oil free but even more because it is so much more portable than the compressor and takes up much less room. I keep mine plugged in close to the computer where I can quickly grab it yet it doesn't get in the way like my compressor would. Lugging my compressor around is a serious pain in the back and, at my age, a lot of work. The DataVac provides continuous airflow whereas the compressor quickly loses pressure and I have to wait for it to build up again.

Im just curious what brand and size compressor do you have?

The datavac isnt bad but the one that most people use is a little underpowered (at least to me) for removing dust in say high fpi rad and alot of air coolers. The company makes a blower designed for motorcycles that is only is a little bit more expensive and has quite a stronger blower (at least on paper)

My compressor is an oiless Husky 2 CFM with a 1.7 GL tank. It develops up to 15 PSI. I originally bought it for use with my Senco pneumatic brad nailer (I know, overkill, but the price was right). It works great for the nailer but, for dusting, it runs out of pressure quickly and I have to wait for the pressure to build back up. It has a drain valve on the bottom of the tank but I can drain the tank and immediately fire it up again and still frequently see signs of moisture whenever I discharge air.

I'm surprised to see you say the DataVac is underpowered. Mine is the same one most people use and it puts out plenty of air. In fact, it puts out so much air, I don't bother with the smaller nozzles to avoid doing damage due to the high velocity air stream. For the same reason, I don't hold it too close to components to avoid doing damage.

One of these can be very helpfull,

http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/muc-off-claw-brush/rp-prod40764

In addition to pressurized air, I use one of these too

http://www.amazon.co.uk/BLACK-DECKER-VH780-Vacuum-230/dp/B0002V9E90/ref=sr_1_5?s=kitchen-appliances&ie=UTF8&qid=1454526098&sr=1-5&keywords=black+and+decker

The little nozel parts are quite small and a good little blast comes out.

I stopped buying Black & Decker years decades ago because they had dropped in quality quite a bit by then.

Thanks for all the info guys. I actually found the DataVac on Newegg for $90 and seems to have fairly good reviews.

Here in a shop-vac I was looking at https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/p.60-l-16-us-gal-5-peak-hp-heavy-duty-wetdry-vacuum.1000663834.html

And here is a cheap compressor I found, I can't seem to find the other one I had for $70

https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/p.pulsar-2-gallon-air-compressor.1000826625.html

Cheap a$$ option #2 ?

https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/p.2-gallon-portable-oil-free-air-compressor-with-8-piece-accessory-kit.1000826794.html


For anybody concerned about the fans I can remove 1 or 2 of them at a time however cleaning the bottom rad with the fans on push may require some power to push the dust through the other side
post #19 of 25
For all those people worried about moisture/oil in the air stream when using a compressor why don't you use a moisture/oil trap for it?

eg: something like this with a built in reg a fairly cheap: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Air-Compressor-Moisture-Water-Trap-Filter-Regulator-Separator-Mount-Connection-/281767746658
