Single 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.
