Dust is the Enemy of Studio Electronics – Use a Portable Room Air Cleaner to Subdue it

Sticky sliders? Components overheating?

These ailments can be caused by dust, which affects electrical systems big and small — because dust loves to infiltrate the recesses and crevices of electronic equipment.

Some might find it deeply ironic that fans designed to cool the equipment also draw dust into the chassis, which can lead to overheating and other electronic malfunctions.

There are several online guides for cleaning audio electronics. This site seems particularly knowledgeable: http://www.gcaudio.com/resources/howtos/eqptcleaning.html.

In your quest for clean equipment, you may also want to consider a room air cleaner that removes particles from the ambient air, reducing the amount of dust available to invade your electronics.

Visualize Cleaner Equipment.At Sentry Air, we tested our SS-300- PRAC (Portable Room Air Cleaner) to see how many particles it could remove from a 12 ft x 12 ft room.

In 90 minutes, it reduced the number of particles in the air by more than 95%. You can see the methodology and test results here.
