RAMM Aerospace, an aviation parts manufacturer based in Quebec, Canada, has announced that its Replacement AS350 Heater Line Kit is now available, after Transport Canada's Civil Aviation (TCCA) and the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approval.
The Replacement AS350 Stainless Steel Heater Line Kit, which aims to reduce maintenance costs and aircraft downtime, was developed alongside an industry operator, RAMM says.
“The majority of the certified helicopter products offered by RAMM Aerospace are customer driven. This Heater Line Kit is another great example of how a solution can be designed with unique features that reduce maintenance costs,” explained Peggy McDonald, VP of Marketing and Sales at RAMM Aerospace. “We have been managing the inventory carefully, so we can support those aircraft coming in for 12-year inspections or need to replace older aluminum lines.”
The kit includes stainless steel pipes that can directly replace aluminium OEM parts, as well as adapters, clamps and fasteners – ‘everything required to complete the installation’ according to RAMM. The kit has no life limit and has been approved to be ‘replaced on condition’. It is to be used alongside the existing control valve and P2 hose from the engine.
