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
