NEW CYLINDER PREHEAT SYSTEM
CAN BE USED WITH ANY OIL SUMP HEATER
Reiff Preheat Systems, who has produced aircraft engine preheaters since 1979 and introduced the Hotpadd oil sump type engine heater in 1992, is answering requests from customers for an affordable, premium engine preheating system which includes cylinder heaters.

The system consists of thin, stainless steel heated bands that clamp around the unfinned portion of each cylinder, and a wire harness. It is quick and simple to install and no STC or Form 337 is required - just a logbook entry. It is available for 120 or 220 V.
