Abstract

Problems exist with computer air intake screens becomming clogged and inteferring with the operation of the cooling fans. The dust particles are not easily brushed away when clogged in the screen. An existing fix is to add a stick on filter to the outside of the box to filter incoming air . The drawback to this traditional filter element is having to remove it, clean it, and reinstall it, or to replace a complete filter element with a new one and spares must be stocked and available somewhere.
