First Hybrid Nylon/Aluminum Modular Oil Pan Replaces All-Aluminum System on Diesel Sedan

SpecialChem / May 11, 2009

A new hybrid plastic/metal modular oil pan produced by Bruss has replaced an all-diecast-aluminum system on Diesel Sedan. The two main components of this system include: an upper diecast aluminum shell and a lower injection-molded, glass-reinforced nylon 6/6 shell (material from DuPont Automotive). The multifunctional lower shell has a rear sump section and a low-profile front zone with an integrated windage tray. Thus, the design lighter and 20-25% less costly than an all-aluminum system.
