Military Water and Ration Heaters and Coolers

RAK15/30

The RAK15/30 is at the optimal size to fit into the cramped quarters of a tank and provide hot meals and drinks for its five person crew, heating 2 pints of water and 5 MRE’s (Meals Ready to Eat) simultaneously.

When used for water only, the RAK15/30 can heat up to one gallon of potable water for drinks, washing or medical purposes.

Depending on the power rating, the RAK unit does this in just 20 minutes under normal ambient conditions- it does of course work in extreme climates too, but may take longer to heat the contents if the prevailing temperature is bitterly cold.

When switched off with the cover closed and locked, the thermally insulated unit keeps its contents piping hot for between four and six hours.

Cooled Vehicle Mounted Vessels

VMV-HC units are designed to withstand the rigours of modern conflict and have been comprehensively tested to meet military standard specification MIL-PRF-44466D, including MIL-STD-461 and MIL-STD-810.

The VMV-HC connects with standard military connectors to the auxiliary power supply of 24 volts DC in armoured and soft-skinned vehicles.

The VMV-HC has a low power uptake and only pulls 10amps in the cooling operation and 15 amps in heating operation.

The unit has a built-in intelligent sensor, the unit automatically switche off if the battery power is getting low and drops to 22 volts; there is a similar over-voltage protection.

Heated Vehicle Mounted Vessels

The outside of the VMV-HC unit remains cool-to-touch to ensure safe transit should the product be mounted on the back door of a vehicle, or located in an exposed position.

Constructed from a robust stainless steel outer casing, the unit is sealed to be water-tight.

The choice of heating ranges is the same as the RAK15, when the unit is in chilling mode you can take 3 litres of drinking water from 50°C to 15-20°C at 0.5°C/min.

Key Features: 

  • Heats or cools whilst on the move
  • Chills water, heats MREs, gives hot potable water on demand
  • Keeps contents hot for up to 6 hours
  • Low thermal signature
