deicer


deicer
Any device used for removing ice formations from any portion of an aircraft, such as exhaust gases for heating, or mechanical methods, such as the inflation of rubber overlay on the surface or intermittent electric heating of a surface. Wind-screens can be deiced electrically by using a special glass sandwich with a transparent conducting surface on the inner sheet, across which alternating current is passed. See deicer boots.
