OPERATOR, FIELD AND SUSTAINMENT MAINTENANCE
LARGE CAPACITY FIELD HEATER (LCFH)
OPERATION UNDER USUAL CONDITIONS
Do not place the LCFH over any fuel and/or electrical lines. Placing the
heater over fuel and/or electrical lines may result in electrical shock or fire
causing serious injury or death.
The LCFH should not be positioned any closer than 2 feet from an external
bulk fuel supply. Placing the heater closer than 2 feet from a bulk fuel
supply may result in fire or explosion causing serious injury or death.
Do not operate the LCFH near other shelters or enclosures that may not be
may be pulled in by the fresh air intake of nearby shelters or enclosures
causing a carbon monoxide hazard. Ensure that the LCFH is placed as far
away from other shelters/enclosures as possible. Failure to do so may
result in severe injury or death to personnel.
Hearing protection should be worn when heater is operating with any of the
access panels open or closed. Failure to wear ear protection could result in
hearing loss or damage.
When positioning the LCFH in preparation for operation, a site should be selected that is:
Within 12 feet of the duct tunnels installed on the side of the shelter.
Within 25 feet of an external bulk fuel supply (if used).
No closer than 2 feet from an external bulk fuel supply (if used).
Preferably downgrade from the bulk fuel supply to encourage better fuel flow.
