2.14. OIL TANKS

Most gas turbine engines are of the dry-sump type, meaning the on is stored separately from the engine, or the tank may be attached to a structural part of the engine. Usually constructed of welded aluminum or steel, it can contain a venting system, a deaerator (baffles) to separate air from the oil. Some systems use an oil level transmitter to indicate quantity, where others have a dipstick or visual sight gage.
