Kwasu, Isaac Ali
Journal of Education and Practice, v6 n29 p59-65 2015
The study was set to develop and pilot a manual airbrush compressor for artists use in art and design. In the design of the manual airbrush, three established technological systems were adopted which includes, compressor, pressure tank and bicycle operating system. The idea was skillfully translated into a working drawing and developed into a prototype for testing. The piloted prototype result reveals that the manual air compressor could carry a successful operation with good result, the manual air compressor could inflate into a pressure tank air that could be used for airbrush designs. It was found to have more advantages than the automated, as follows: Cost less with very low maintenance rate, cost of prime movers cut off, no usage of fuel, no air pollution and noise free. However, other users like tire menders, car painters etc., could try the product.
