Spring has quickly morphed into summer-like weather and many of us are pulling out window and revolving fans to get them ready to stave off the coming sweltering heat. In my own efforts, I discovered that though stored well, an annoying a layer of dust had accumulated inside my fans.
Recently, I came across a device that’s saved me from my annual take-apart-and-clean-the-fans ritual.
The 02 Hurricane Canless System will replace and eliminate the need to use canned air (or your own DIY system) to clean just about anything with dust or debris. Fitting comfortably in the palm of your hand, this compact, portable, rechargeable, environmentally friendly air blower delivers a non-toxic, more continuous burst of air than any canned air product.
Able to do short or continuous bursts of air, the 02 Hurricane has an almost endless amount of uses (besides cleaning dust from fans). These include cleaning car dashboards, bookshelves, ridding pets of loose hair, “dusting” plants, light fixtures, outdoor furniture and cleaning off desktop / laptop keyboards.
This deceptively simple device encompasses a 12-volt Nickel Metal Hydride battery, a housing and a motor.
Taking in surrounding air through its vents, the motor spins it at around 35,000 rpm then shoves it out again at a high rate of speed.
John Scherer, the former Video Professor, is the man behind the 02 Hurricane Canless Air System.
“It’s like a little jet engine in your hand,” said Scherer. “And it’s just air,” he said, so there’s no danger, versus the serious health issues related with canned air products.
Most canned air products don’t actually contain air. Canned “air” is really compressed gas-filled with hydroflourocarbons – toxic greenhouse gases such as difluoroethane, trifluoroethane and tetrafluoroethane.
A single can of canned air has around 3,000 times the effect on the atmosphere than carbon dioxide (CO2). Worse still, inhaling this “air” has seriously negative health effects.
2.1 million Americans age 12 and older have abused inhalants. Canned air is the 4th most abused drug out there according to the U.S. government. Inhalant abuse or “huffing” to attain a mental “high” or euphoric effect is part of a growing and dangerous trend among youths and teens. Children as young as eight years old have tried canned air for a quick high, sometimes with horrific results.
Some of the negative health effects huffing canned air products can cause include brain damage, seizures, permanent impairment of vital organs, hearing loss, even death from sudden cardiac death and asphyxiation.
“Eliminate the sources of huffing and we can begin to end huffing,” said Scherer.
The beauty of the 02 Hurricane Air System is that it’s non-toxic and safe.
Disposing of canned air products isn’t as simple as tossing or recycling them. You first have to drill holes in the cans to release the gases. The majority of these cans end up in landfills.
Scherer’s company is currently working with corporations such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin and NASA.
Corporations are finding their products, Scherer said.
The detection systems in airports are using this. Fire alarm companies use it to clean fire alarms.
Redbox movie rentals called them, got a unit and ended up ordering 600 of them. Coinstar, which owns Redbox, orders hundreds every month.
Scherer has developed an Industrial unit, along with the original 02 Hurricane, which is designed for companies and IT departments. They also recently introduced their EDS Safe unit – the static air version that companies can use in clean rooms. This was the result of a request by Raytheon.
These handy air blowers and their myriad uses are sure to be a must-have for home, the office, boating, RVing and anything else you can think of. Available only online, you’ll find the 02 Hurricane Air System at Canlessair.com. For a special discount on the Industrial unit, see http://bit.ly/10Q17F7.
