The Alphatherm AT-38OD is the solution for ice covered windshields in the winter, and insect/road debris covered windshields in the summer. The Alphatherm AT-38OD heats your washer fluid to over 60 degrees C which will melt any ice or help to remove stuck on debris a lot easier than using your windshield wipers alone.
It will also help to increase the lifespan of your existing windshield wiper blades as they will not have to work nearly as hard clearing ice or debris from the windshield. The picture below illustrates what this device will do for you:
Designed for simple do-it-yourself installation, the Alphatherm AT-38OD can be installed in under 20 minutes on many vehicles. We can also professionally install this kit for you at Lockdown Security.
As taken from the Alphatherm website:
The Heated Wash AT-38OD operates in “On-Demand” mode. The unit starts to operate when the ignition is on (engine running) and battery voltage level is higher than 13.0 volts. Once the unit is activated, the washer fluid inside its heating chamber will be heated and kept within pre-determined temperature limits (140 – 150°F), so there is always hot fluid inside the unit’s heating chamber which can be used by a driver for cleaning the windshield. Each time the driver activates the factory installed washer system, heated washer fluid is applied to the windshield for approximately the first 3 seconds of spray. Three seconds of the spray delivers approx. 50-60 cc of fluid that is considered sufficient amount of fluid for one spray. The next portion of heated washer fluid is available in 10-20 second(depending on ambient conditions). The HeatedWash unit uses full power of 50 Amps for 30 seconds to heat the washer fluid up to pre-determined temperature limits (140 – 150°F), and minimal power to keep it within these limits. The unit’s power consumption is less than 2 Amps per hour
