Winter and cold weather are coming upon us very quickly. Now is the time to check your de-ice and back-up pneumatic systems.
It is a fact the majority of 400 series pump failures are attributed to de-ice regulators not functioning properly due to a lack of preventive maintenance.
Preventive maintenance or replacement now will...
- Save thousands of dollars of downtime
- Improve efficiency of pneumatic/de-ice system
- Improve safety!
The following service letter and bulletin provides detailed procedures to assist in maintenance and replacement.
