Abstract: This paper describes a new approach to design and fabrication of Pedal operated air compressor with the goal of building a working prototype. Here is a try to create a mechanical device that can use the mechanical power operated by pedals as in bicycles to run an air compressor and additional water pump. The additional cooling system is used for maintaining the temperature of compressed air. We used a cycle chain-sprocket system as a basic pedaling power source and connect it to the main shaft joining both the air compressor and a water pump through several gears. This approach will be helpful for saving a sufficient amount of electricity and get a robust portable air compressor system.
