90.91 Figure 11-10.—Burner unit and parts. monoxide poisoning. The outfit is divided into two sections that weigh about 40 pounds each and is easily carried on two  backboards.  A  5-gallon  can that  completes  the  necessary  equipment  may  be carried on a third packboard. The immersion-type heater is designed for use with corrugated cans and tank trailers. It is used primarily    to    heat    water    for    washing    and sanitizing dinnerware and cooking utensils in the field. It is designed to heat water in either 24- or 30-gallon corrugated cans. In  cold  climates,  the  heater  can  be  used  for melting  snow  or  ice  into  water.  It  also  can  keep existing water supplies from freezing. In extreme emergencies,  the  heater  may  be  used  to  heat  a tent or other shelter, provided the exhaust fumes are piped out of the enclosed space. Gasoline   is   the   prescribed   fuel.   Although kerosene, diesel oils, and fuel oils may be burned in  the  heater,   they   produce   more   smoke   and require a longer preheating period. A full tank of gasoline (2.2 gallons) should run the heater for 6 hours     under     normal     operating     conditions. However,  if  operated  continuously  at  a  high-fire rate, a tank of gasoline may be consumed in less than 4 hours. The  tank  trailer  water  heater  is  designed  for use in cold  climates  to  keep  water  supplies  from freezing. It is used to heat water in 250- and 400- gallon  water  tank  trailers  and  in  a  700-gallon water  tank  truck.  With  the  same  provisions  as the immersion-type heater, it also can be used in emergencies  to  heat  a  tent  or  other  personnel shelter. Fuel requirements and capabilities of the heater  are  same  as  those  of  the  corrugated  can heater. The Army TM, Basic Doctrine for  Army  Field Feeding,    FM    10-23,    contains    the    minimum information   necessary   to    safely    operate    the immersion-type  heater.  Be  sure  you  receive  a copy of the TM with the immersion heater. IMPROVISED STOVES Any large metal container, such as a washtub, can   be   easily   made   into   a   stove.   It   is   only necessary to provide an opening for tending to the fire and the bottom draft and to make a chimney at  the  top.  A  tin  can  with  both  ends  removed makes a good chimney.      You can make a surprisingly efficient gasoline stove  by  using  two  cans.  Pierce  the  outer  empty can, preferably a No. 10 can, with nail holes. This is done from the top sides down to within about 1 1/2 inches from the bottom. Next, put clean sand into  the  can  filling  it  up  to  the  level  where  the holes    begin.    Then    saturate    the    sand    with gasoline.   There   should   be   no   liquid   gasoline visible on top of the can. 11-10
