EQUIPMENT CAPABILITIES AND FEATURES
Characteristics of the LCFH are as follows:
The LCFH has 16 inch inlet and outlet duct fittings.
The heater has an internal 33-gallon fuel tank adequate for 8 hours operation at maximum heat
output, with an external fuel supply connection and fuel hose provided.
The LCFH runs on diesel or jet fuels, including JP-8, DF-A, DF-1 or DF-2. The heater size is 40
inches H x 44 inches W x 62 inches L and weighs 622 pounds in the ready-to-operate
The heater starts using its two internal Optima batteries with ambient temperatures as low as
-40 F. A NATO slave connector is provided to assist the heater in starting at temperatures as low
The LCFH is self-powered by a 6.5 Hp militarized diesel engine that has a 500 hour overhaul
Engine noise control is accomplished with vibration isolation mounts, sound-deadening materials,
and an oversized exhaust muffler system. A large, low rpm impeller wheel minimizes ventilation
The heater is controlled via an integral control panel connected to the heater with a 25-foot cable
that is brought into the shelter during operation.
Automatic safety controls give protection from over temperature or flame out faults.
The controls can be operated when wearing arctic mittens or MOPP-IV gear and are shielded
from the effects of Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) and are readily understandable.
Both primary and backup carbon monoxide (CO) detectors in the ventilation air stream audibly
announce high CO levels and are interlocked with the burner control logic.
The LCFH aluminum housing and welded aluminum frame form a rugged, yet lightweight,
structure suitable for military transport and airdrop.
The heater has tie-down sling provisions, and forklift guides enhancing its general transportability;
handles and deployable wheels allow for local mobility.
