Air Power, Inc. is a proud distributor of Tempest's complete line of new and overhauled dry air pumps. Tempest pumps are FAA-PMA approved and meet the demands of today’s light aircraft. Additionally, Tempest stand-by systems and pneumatic components are available for purchase to keep you flying safe with quality aircraft parts!
Tempest® has a complete line of OEM dry air pumps, spark plugs and oil filters. Additional Tempest® product lines include fuel pumps, oil filter adapters and specialty tools.
New induction air filters from the brand you trust! Tempest® has a long and proud history of excellent filtration products for general aviation. This tradition continues their line of Tempest AeroGuard™ induction air filters. These air filters are manufactured using a black anodized aluminum housing and screen to prevent corrosion and fragmented media from being ingested. Designed to keep your induction system clean in the dirtiest environments, the 100% polyester spunbond nonwoven media offers maximum airflow while still filtering out 99% of contaminants larger than 5 microns. Tempest's high quality durable synthetic media is washable and allows you to reuse the filter. If you are looking to minimize contaminants and maximize airflow choose Tempest AeroGuard™ induction air filters, now available at Air Power, Inc.!
Since its inception, Tempest and its employees have prided themselves on providing the aviation industry with products that are known for their superior quality, innovation, value and backed by the industry’s best customer support and service. These core beliefs have led to industry first’s, such as the Tempest dry air pump WIP™, the ‘fired-in’ resistor for spark plugs, and the Spin-EZ® gasket oil filters.
You can find Tempest brand products being used by OEM’s like Beechcraft®, Cessna®, Cirrus®, Continental Motors®, Piper®, Robinson Helicopters®, and Superior Air Parts®.
Today, Tempest is recognized and respected worldwide for its leading lines of pneumatic, ignition, and filtration products. Tempest offers complete lines of OEM dry air pumps, spark plugs, and oil filters. Additional Tempest product lines include fuel pumps, oil filter adapters and specialty tools.
High Conductivity Copper Core Center Electrode: Copper, co-extruded inside a nickel alloy sleeve ensures outstanding heat and electrical conductivity while the nickel sleeve offers high resistance to corrosive combustion gases.
Proprietary Glass Center Seal: 21st century ‘fired in’ resistor replaces the multipart screw, spring, and carbon pile stack up used in competitive plugs and known to suffer from resistance value instability that can cause misfires, wasted fuel, and engine roughness.
High Alumina Ceramic Insulator: High mechanical strength, superior dielectric properties, and proprietary protective glaze, provides high performance to conquer severe operational conditions. “Clean Collar” massive electrode “V” tip focuses heat to reduce fouling and enhance heat range control.
Nickel Finish: Environmentally preferable electrolytic nickel provides outstanding durable finish, superior corrosion protection, and extreme wear resistance.
Nickel Ground Electrodes: Aviation grade nickel electrode design focuses on minimizing sparking voltage requirements while maintaining specification gaps to ensure large, stable ‘flame kernels’ for on-time ignition and complete combustion
Vacuum Infused Center Electrode: The proprietary vacuum infusion process seals the electrode/insulator gap providing stable heat range and superior center electrode cooling (heat flow to the insulator).
Hot-Lock Assembly: Intense pressure and heat create positive, zero-leakage, shrunken in seal between insulator and shell to contain the hot, high pressure combustion cycle gases.
Harness Wire Contact: Our smooth, uninterrupted, oxide treated spring contact surface offers enhanced corrosion resistance, is chemically bonded to the fired-in resistor providing the ultimate harness/spark plug termination integrity and energy transfer.
