Jet Engine Core and Fan Deicing 5 (Nano)


Jet engines are most susceptible to the build up of blade ice in conditions of freezing fog or freezing precipitation while the engine is at or near its minimum rotation speed (ground idle). Compressor and fan blades are aerofoils and, due to the affect that they have on the airflow across them, any ice accretion will normally be found on the back side of the blade. This makes the ice difficult to see during a preflight inspection and also inhibits its removal.
