Hartzell-built De-Ice Systems Provide One-Stop Shopping for Propeller




PIQUA, Ohio – March 16, 2007 – Hartzell Propeller Inc. announced

today that it has introduced its own line of Hartzell-designed

propeller de-ice components with plans to support the entire catalog

of Hartzell propellers that feature de-ice capability. The new

Hartzell de-ice components will replace previous, third-party

manufactured de-ice parts, including de-icer boots, wire harnesses,

and slip rings.


Hartzell de-ice components have been designed, extensively tested and

FAA certified to match or exceed the performance of the previous

supplier’s products. Hartzell is in full-scale production of its new

de-ice product line and is stocking parts for immediate shipment when

replacement parts are required.


Hartzell de-ice products will be offered with warranty coverage

superior to other suppliers’ coverage. The de-icer boots themselves

will be covered for 18 month/2000 flight hours. Other components of

the de-ice kits will feature a 12 month/1000 flight hour warranty.

The key difference from other suppliers is that the Hartzell warranty

also covers labor to remove and replace defective parts.


In addition to component production, Hartzell also has developed the

capability to engineer the entire propeller de-ice system for new

applications in order to offer its OEM customers a one-stop source

for complete propeller system design.  This will further improve

Hartzell’s ability to provide customers with responsive propeller

design, development and certification support.


Hartzell de-ice parts are available directly from Hartzell or through

its worldwide network of recommended propeller repair stations. To

find the nearest facility visit and go to

Product Support, Worldwide Network.   Component eligibility can be

found in Hartzell Service Letter 259 and 260.  These documents can be

viewed at by going to Product Support, Recent

Service Documents.
