Pick-up tube

  • 26-Aug-2010 02:37 EDT


Tube Fab/Roman Engineering has designed a high-performance engine oil pick-up tube assembly for diesel and gasoline engines. The tube assembly's design offers a 50% increased filtration area and an increased volume throughput, as well as decreased blockage potential with greater screen size options and a smaller footprint area in the oil pan. The design reduces the number of components on the assembly from six or seven components to three, thereby reducing the associated costs. Tube Fab's oil pick-up assembly can be manufactured in various tube sizes to meet diverse oil distribution requirements, according to the company.
