The purpose of this project was to restore a dilapidated air compressor, collect from the compressor real-time pressure data, and create a fluid dynamics lab manual using the data collected. Due to the compressor's advanced age, original replacement parts, instructions, and maintenance manuals were unavailable. The team engineered custom solutions to restore mechanical and electrical systems that would ensure the safe operation of the compressor.
