I didn't state this properly. I used to use canned air, but eventually bought a scuba tank. So initially I cleaned out the scanner with canned air, but once I owned a scuba tank, I don't use canned air. It is really hard to blow out a scanner with canned air because canned air needs to be kept totaly horizontal else the liquid comes out. I did some investigation on the air in the scuba tanks. The pumps use an inert vegetable oil so that if any oil does get past the filter, it will not do much in the way of damage. -----Original Message----- From: firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com]On Behalf Of Scanlist@aol.com Sent: Sunday, April 07, 2002 8:44 AM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: dust in my SS4000 In a message dated 4/7/2002 6:34:11 AM Eastern Daylight Time, email@example.com writes: I've cleaned mine out with canned air and later the scuba tank, but I never noticed dust in the scans, just in the scanner. ;-) Anyway, dust does come out of the scanner. If the canned air does any good is another story. No matter what the current claims about the "canned air" doesn't do to the environment, it is basically untrue. The formulas used are still detrimental to the atmosphere, the just break down quicker, so they are somewhat better than the older formulas. but not 100% earth friendly, as they'd like us to believe. Go with the scuba tank, or a small compressor with air filter/moisture trap. Better for everything/everyone. Doug Nobiletti - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
