Driving De-Icing Forward: UTC Aerospace Systems Responds To Customer Needs With Patented Technology, Expanded Service

Published: July 2017
 

OSHKOSH, Wis. Cutting-edge technology plus an expanded network of authorized installation centers are giving owners, operators and customers like Textron Aviation more reasons to continue to collaborate with UTC Aerospace Systems on their de-icing needs.

At the Oshkosh Air Show today, UTC Aerospace Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp., unveiled its new DuraTherm® propeller de-icer. Using technology originally developed by UTC Aerospace Systems to meet the U.S. military’s needs for propeller de-icing in harsh environments, DuraTherm® is designed to enhance aircraft operational efficiency. The system’s patented commercial heater technology provides uniform heat distribution to help shed ice quickly and efficiently, while its resistance to foreign object damage (FOD) helps aircraft maintain continued operation. DuraTherm® is fully interchangeable with current propeller de-icers and FAA certified.

To further help owners and operators keep their aircraft in flight, and reduce the travel time and expenses associated with aircraft service, UTC Aerospace Systems has launched an expanded U.S. national network of 13 authorized de-icing installation centers. Each location offers a full suite of factory-grade support for UTC Aerospace Systems de-icing solutions, found on more than 200 models of general, business and regional aircraft.

Widely recognized within the industry for its leading de-icing products and services, UTC Aerospace Systems also announced today it has been selected by Textron Aviation to provide Goodrich Estane® pneumatic and propeller de-icers and support services for the Cessna Denali single-engine turboprop program. Through its proprietary surface material, Goodrich Estane® de-icers offer greater resistance to cold cracking, corrosive fluid resistance and improved durability and life. The Cessna Denali’s first flight is expected in 2018.

“For nearly a century, since B.F. Goodrich invented pneumatic de-icing boots in 1928, our company has been at the forefront of de-icing solutions,” said Mark Skarohlid, Vice President of Business Development for Sensors & Integrated Systems, UTC Aerospace Systems. “We’re proud of our de-icing legacy and dedicated to honoring it through continued innovations and our ongoing commitment to peerless customer service.”
