Oil Tank Heater Blankets
Pre-heating the oil in the tank of a dry sump engine is a great way to prevent engine wear at start-up. When you first start your engine, the viscosity of the cold oil can be high enough to cause the oil pump to cavitate. This results in greatly reduced oil flow to the bearings and camshaft. Because of the high viscosity, your pressure gauge may show high pressure, even if the engine is not getting an adequate volume of oil. This is especially critical on racing engines because of the large bearing clearances that are often used.
Our heater blankets operate on 120 VAC and come assembled with cord and plug.
