The heat source in common use today by US Forces in pre-packaged meals ready-to-eat (MRE) is the flameless ration heater (FRH).  It's been claimed difficult to use, inefficient in bringing the MRE entree to full heat, and limited in its potential use.  What’s more, because many soldiers become frustrated with its limitations, the FRH is often tossed aside. These discarded FRHs must be disposed of as hazardous waste, effectively doubling on-going cost to the military. Worse, because the FRH gives off hydrogen gas when activated, it is used by insurgents in combat zones for improvised explosive devices.

The modern warfighter requires a heat source that can quickly and efficiently deliver a hot entree and beverage in the field without providing the enemy with a weapon.  With all that the modern soldier has to carry, their ration heater would be more valuable if it did more than just heat a single MRE entree to lukewarm.  It should be able to easily start a fire for warmth, or to dry a pair of wet socks, and; to burn smokeless and clear, leaving no charring and no trace that soldiers have been there.

Utility Flame© fuel gel system fulfills all the heat source needs of the modern warfighter, it was developed by military experts, is approved by the US Defence Logistics Agency as well as by the armed forces of Canada and Norway.  Utility Flame Gel is odorless, smoke-free, lightweight, inexpensive, non-toxic and safe to transport by aircraft and extremely versatile. Its uses are unlimited - it will boil water, provide emergency sterilization, make hot MREs, reconstitute freeze dried foods, heat a cup of coffee, dry wet clothing, provide warmth and start a campfire.  It can be used as a heat source in virtually any environment and situation.  Because Utility Flame is not a hazardous material, it requires no special clean up or handling, only by-products are carbon dioxide, water and sand.  And because the gel is smokeless and burns so clean, the flame is almost impossible to see, a clear advantage on the battlefield.  Once the gel has burned, all that is left at the site is Silica sand that easily brushes away.  There are virtually no signs that a fire has been made.  UTILITY FLAME© will not freeze or melt, and it burns well at high altitude.  Excellent addition to your camping kit, perfect fuel for when you need ‘fire in the field.’.

The Utility Flame™ kit comes with an ultra light metal stove that, when easily unfolded, creates a convection flow that funnels the heat where it’s needed, while shielding the faint blue flame from enemy eyes. When set up, the stove is the perfect size to fit a standard issue canteen cup. Alternately, a pot and its contents weighing up to 1.3kg. can be set on top.  While the stove was specifically designed with the U.S. Military Canteen Cup in mind, the gel is perfect for all other gel and solid fuel cookers, such as the Crusader Cooker™ and the Esbit™ stove. Of course, the gel can be set directly on the ground or any other surface as well.
