WHY CHOOSE TANIS PREHEAT?

EXPERTISE!  ENGINE LONGEVITY!  QUALITY!

Only a preheat system from Tanis will thoroughly heat-soak your engine!

          Having a Tanis multi-point preheat system will thoroughly heat-soak your engine. This will keep the metal above dew point removing the chance of condensation on your engine. Condensation forms when warm oil/water vapor rises from your oil pan and hits a colder surface (like your cylinder heads!). This is the main reason why you want your cylinders and case warmer than your oil pan.

          A Tanis Preheat System will heat the metal on your engine and will keep the tolerances of the metal more uniform causing a reduction in wear during startup. For deep heating, Tanis piston preheat systems use a unique and patented heated threaded element that can go into the rocker cover or intake to fully heat the head of the cylinder. Heating the cylinder heads protect the engine and allows the heat to distribute through the engine cylinders more uniformly. Tanis uses heating pads on the case of the engine to ensure uniform heating and to ensure the case stays above the dew point. Preheating your engine also reduces the chance of frost on the spark plugs and reduces startup time which saves fuel and wear and tear on your engine.

          Multi-point preheating is standard on all our systems. During the cold winter months most engine/aircraft manufacturers require multi-point preheating before starting their engines. Tanis fully heat-soaks the mass of the engine all the way into the center crankshaft. Tanis also heat-soaks general aviation engines in a much shorter time than the forced air heat application. Tanis systems are designed to be safely left on for extended periods of time and allow for rapid starts. These systems not only heat your engine for cold weather startup but also protect your engine!

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

CAN I LEAVE A TANIS PREHEAT SYSTEM PLUGGED IN ALL THE TIME?

Yes, Tanis preheat systems can be plugged in continuously in ambient temperatures less than 100F/38C.


CAN I USE A PORTABLE GENERATOR?

Yes, as long as it has adequate continuous wattage capacity. It could be in AC or DC even.


HOW HOT DOES THE ENGINE GET?

Tanis systems are designed to raise the engine temperature 60±10 degrees F° (33.3±5.5 C°) above ambient.

 

WHAT KIND OF EXTENSION CORD DO I NEED?

  • 16+ gauge extension cord is normally adequate for 50 foot runs.
  • The longer the cord the heavier (lower) the gauge you should use.
  • A cold weather cord is recommended in cold regions for flexibility and reliability.
  • See your systems pilot guide for more information.

 

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO INSTALL A TANIS PREHEAT KIT?

On a GA aircraft once the cowl is removed, it may take 2-5 man hours for completion per engine. Pad heat elements require curing before the aircraft can return to service. For helicopter and complete aircraft installs the time is variable based on the status of the aircraft and type of aircraft. Contact Tanis for additional help.
