A Fuel Systems Anti-Icing Concept for a Modern Commercial Jet Engine 942191

The solution developed to solve problems relating to operation with cold fuel consists in:
  • using only free calories available in the engine oil systems with no air heater being used,
  • heating as necessary just the quantity of fuel used for engine control to prevent icing of the systems at takeoff,
  • heating the fuel inside the aircraft tanks to ensure correct pumping during very long flights at high altitude.
