Abstract : The invention is concerned with an improved oil deaerator having an entrance tube with holes to allow much of the air to escape prior to entering the deaerator entry tube which is inclined and flattened causing the air/oil mixture to flow against the inside of the cylinder with the oil going to the outside and out the bottom louvers and the air escaping through a spout at the top. The unique design of the bottom with slotted or louvered oil exit openings and double cylinder arrangement reduces the possibility of the formation of a vortex.
