Flameless Ration Heaters


Use the Flameless Ration Heater in four simple steps and have a hot meal any time, any where - no boiling water required.


The Flameless Ration Heater is designed to have a five year shelf-life. It provides the perfect amount of heat for a ration in any situation. It contains more than twice the active ingredients used in other heaters, meaning it produces more than double the heat energy. This makes it ideal for cold weather operations and remote feeding situations.

Once activated, the Flameless Ration Heater will immediately rise to peak temperature and stay there for over 12 minutes. This is enough to heat an MRE entrée, a side dish, and often a drink pouch. Each individual MRE comes with a flameless ration heater. As such, it is designed to be wrapped around one or two retort-packaged pouches. It can, however, also be wrapped around tins of food or a sealed liquid pouch.


The 11 gram heater will activate with only 30 mL of any type of water and is ideal for 300 gram retort entrees. Both heater models have easy-to-read instructions in English, French, Spanish, and German.
