Some people have inquired about the desire to use compressed air as power source: " I've
done some research and share with you the following short and
to-the-point answer to the question of using compressed air rather than
steam on steam whistles in general:"Yes, but the note will be
lower than on steam since the density of air is higher than steam. You
will need a substantial air receiver and large delivery line to
effectively blow a steam whistle on air. Remember that flow is more
important than pressure. A whistle will work on relatively low pressure
if it has the CFM delivery available, but won't work even on high
pressure if the feed line is too small. You can't get around physics."in other words - it'll need a lot of air - volume more than pressure - and will sound somewhat different than steam."
