OPERATION UNDER USUAL CONDITIONS
PREPARING THE H-45 TYPE I (SOLID FUEL) AND TYPE II (LIQUID FUEL) HEATERS FOR
The H-45 Type I (Solid Fuel) Heater, with the shipping
container, weighs approximately 72 pounds (32.66 kg). The
H-45 Type II (Liquid Fuel) Heater, with the shipping
container, weighs approximately 75 pounds (34.02 kg). Two
persons must carry either heater, lifting using their legs, not
their backs, to prevent injury.
Servicing Prior To Operation
The heater unit should be clean and free of packing material prior to use. All operator PMCS should be
accomplished prior to use. (See WP 0009 00 Service Upon Receipt for an inventory of heater parts, and
see WP 0011 00 and WP 0029 00 PMCS requirements.)
The metal surfaces of the H-45 heater body are shipped from the
manufacturer with a protective film that must be burned off prior to the
initial use of the heater in an enclosed area. Failure to do so could result
in inhaling harmful fumes.
For procedures on burning off the protective film see the procedures outlined in this work package under
the type of heater you are using or see WP 0009 00 Service Upon Receipt.
