Preheating engines for winter operations is at best a miserable chore and at worst can be a disaster for the plane, the pilot & flight operations - until the development of the E-Z Heat Aircraft Engine Heater. The E-Z Heat was designed to provide very efficient engine heating for virtually all propeller driven aircraft. The heaters consist of a flexible synthetic pad that easily conforms to the contours of the oil pan. This pad will heat 12 qts of oil from -40° to +60°F in an hour while using approximately 300 watts of electricity. The heater is 1/32" thick. which enables the immediate heat transfer from heater to engine.
The heaters are thermostatically controlled, so leaving them plugged in overnight means the plane will be ready to go in the morning. Normally, complete pre-heating takes only 3-5 hours for the entire engine to be nice and warm. With this new lighted plug (110V models only, 220V models include no plug to allow for European outlet variance), the owner simply needs to look out the window or peek in the hangar to see if they remembered to plug in their E-Z Heat engine pre-heater. Molded into the male plug end is a newly designed light emitting diode (LED). This LED allows the operator to visually recognize if there is electrical power to the preheat system even from a distance. FAA approved for certificated aircraft.
End your cold weather starting problems and reduce premature engine wear.
It will keep the oil between 120F-165F.
They typically can both go on the bottom or one on bottom, one on side, just as long as they are below the oil level line.
They do not have a user adjustable thermostat but they have an internal controller that will adjust the temps.
