Engine preheating is accomplished through electrical resistance heat in the form of thin pads sized and shaped to fit various parts. The pads are surface mounted with a bonding adhesive. This includes engine accessory and reduction gearboxes, fluids, and attached accessories. Power is routed to the heat elements through a dedicated wiring assembly with power indication and circuit overload protection. System is self-regulating through design. Heated components reach an average state of thermal equilibrium in approximately six hours.
This preheat kit when installed will supply 1020 watts with a 8.9 amp draw at 115 volts.
Applicable on ATR 72, ATR 42, Fokker 60, Xian MA60, Euromil Mi-38, EADS CASA C-295, Ilyushin Il-114, and others.
