    I just did a recent deploy of some lease PC's that went into an area where they distribute, wash and dry a large volume of clothing (~2k articles a day). In my oversight I didn't realize the amount of lint/dust that could be generated by this.

    Anyone have any ideas for some products that can be used to filter the intake fans? Or "homebrew" solutions?

    I use ac vent filters on my pc, not furnace filters btw. You can get these at walmart, home depot, lowes for a few bucks.

    Cut them to the shape of the intake inlet and tape them over it. Works great, I barely get any dust in my systems, but the filter is filthy. I try to change them every 6 months.

    In your case, I would change them monthly, but investing in a seperate cabinet or rack to filter out the air pollution may be more worthwhile.

    Swiffer duster thingies. Attract dust, and are disposable.

    There's still enough air getting through into those?
