EAA AirVenture Oshkosh RSS FeedTempest announces new starter, spark plug products

Parts manufacturer Tempest announced this week at EAA AirVenture 2010 it added two new categories to its existing line of FAA- and PMA-approved aviation parts, components, and tools: engine starter motors and spark plugs.

The first of its starter motors is a new FAA/PMA-approved design eligible for installation on TCM engines. The Tempest PowerFlite starter mounts directly to the engine and is available in both 12- and 24-volt versions.

“We are proud to bring a highly efficient and reliable starter to general aviation. Our PowerFlite line of starters has been designed and developed by a team of engineers with over 50 years combined experience in starter/generator design,” said John Herman, Tempest vice president of sales and marketing.

Meanwhile, the company said it has received FAA/PMA approvals and began shipping its new spark plugs. In addition to being competitively priced, the Tempest spark plug line features nickel plating for corrosion protection, a proprietary glass center seal and integral resistor for improved spark gap life, and an unslotted electrode head ensuring consistent contact for energy transfer.

A vacuum-cemented center electrode prevents combustion gases from interfering with heat transfer while the spark plug’s ceramic insulator uses a proprietary glaze material to ensure high mechanical strength and dielectric quality.

The new spark plugs are available in standard massive electrode and premium fine wire designs.

For more information on Tempest’s new products, along with details on its existing offerings, visit the company’s exhibit in Hangar D, Booth 4079-81, or its website at www.TempestPlus.com.
