Oil Management Module for Lower Engine 980733

Managing engine oil temperatures and extending service intervals has caused many engine designers to consider crankshaft windage trays. With benefits such as reducing oil aeration and oil temperature while improving engine performance, windage trays have long been used in performance engines. Most automotive engines would benefit from the introduction of windage trays. This paper outlines a new approach in the form of an oil management module for the lower engine, a one piece glass-reinforced nylon composite system which integrates a windage tray with other oil system components such as: pan gasket, pick-up/strainer, baffling and sensor interface. The oil management module is very near to reality since it is the integration of proven nylon composite applications and not a totally new application.
