P19330: Computer Chassis Cleaner

Project Summary Project Information

Dirt and dust buildup has a negative impact on computer life and performance. Current best practices include using compressed air or vacuums to clean individual components manually and must be performed outdoors to prevent room contamination. These processes create a lengthy time investment and can lead to increased risk of ESD damage to components. For someone managing computer resources for large departments, this can lead to cleaning out dozens of computers on a regular basis.

The goal is to create an all-in-one enclosure that can remove dust from a PC efficiently while also being easy and safe to operate. This enclosure would be a single portable device that can be brought into a room full of computers instead of moving them all outdoors. We hope that the enclosure will improve cleaning time in such a way to make the process more efficient while extending computer performance.
