CozyCarb - Cyclone Coolant-Based Carburetor Heater
US $329.00 + Shipping
THE CYCLONE coolant carburetor heater is suitable for Rotax two stroke liquid cooled engines (Types 462, 532, 582/90, 582/99 and 618), fitted with the Bing type 54 carburetor.
This style of carburetor heater is intended to add a small amount of heat to the carburetor body, in order to keep the temperature of the body above freezing point. The intention is that the addition of heat to the carburetor body will prevent ice from forming in the carburetor throat.
Because there is no significant heating of the intake air when hot coolant is circulating through the carb heater(s), there will be a negligible loss of full engine power. It is therefore recommended that the carburetor heat system is permanently connected and operating. Once operating, you will never forget to turn it on!
Extensive testing of the system has been carried out in adverse winter conditions. It has been demonstrated that the system will prevent the formation of ice. The system has not been tested under all possible conditions that may prevail and therefore its effectiveness cannot be guaranteed in all circumstances. Aircraft equipped with this device should always be flown in circumstances where a successful ‘power off’ landing can be made in the event of engine failure.
