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."
