  • Patent number: 9982601
    Abstract: An oil lubrication system is provided. The oil lubrication system may comprise an oil pump, a conduit fluidly coupled to the oil pump, and a damper fluidly coupled to the conduit. The damper may further comprise a volume configured to receive oil in response to a pulse event. A heat exchanger may also be fluidly coupled to the conduit. In various embodiments, the damper may comprise a spherical volume. The damper may be fluidly coupled to the conduit between the oil pump and the heat exchanger. An adapter may be mechanically coupled between the conduit and the damper. The adapter may comprise a passage in fluid communication with the conduit and the damper. The damper may further comprise a membrane. A gas or compressible fluid may be disposed in the damper on a first side of the membrane. The membrane may be configured to separate the gas from the oil.

  • Publication number: 20160208708
    Abstract: A fuel/oil manifold includes first and second manifold flanges and a manifold tube. The first and second manifold flanges are located in non-parallel planes with respect to one another. The manifold tube is connected at a first end to the first manifold flange and at a second end to the second manifold flange and includes at least one turn between the first and the second end that includes a non-zero tube bend radius defined as the ratio of a turn radius to a diameter of the manifold tube.
