Minco Tests a New Approach to Electrothermal De-icing

Preventing excessive ice build-up on aircraft wings in flight is critical. Traditionally, heat for this has been scavenged from the plane’s engines and distributed with pneumatic conduit, but the push for lighter aircraft to improve fuel efficiency has raised interest in electrically generated heat as a lighter-weight alternative.
