  • Connection diagram for a fuel injected Lycoming engine
    • Return air from the engine is pulled from the dipstick tube into the System Control Case
    • The System Control Case contains the micro-processor, the humidity and temperature sensors, and the system pump
    • If the relative humidity is greater than 10%, the system turns the pump on, pumping the engine air through the desiccant to remove the moisture
    • Dry air is fed from the desiccant container into the crankcase vent line, into the exhaust, and into the intake air plenum
    • When the engine air returned to the control case drops to 5% relative humidity, the system turns the pump off
    • During the time the pump is off, the system monitors both the relative humidity of outside air and the engine air
    • Based on this combined relative humidity, the microprocessor dynamically modifies the pump run and idle times to insure outside moisture does not re-enter the engine
  • Connections to the engine are made to easily attach to the engine ports & the exhaust

  • Various aircraft types and engines may have different connection configurations

  • Some of the aircraft and engine installations are listed below (As of Jan. 2015)

  • Additional aircraft and engines are being added as requests are received
