The RAK15 is also certified for food heating, meeting. The RAK15/30 is at the optimal size to fit into the cramped quarters of a tank and provide hot meals and drinks for its five person crew, heating 2 pints of water and 5 MRE's (Meals Ready to Eat) simultaneously.
When used for water only, the RAK15/30 can heat up to one gallon of potable water for drinks, washing or medical purposes. When switched off with the cover closed and locked, the thermally insulated unit keeps its contents piping hot for between four and six hours. The RAK15/30 connects with standard military connectors to the auxiliary power supply of 24 volts DC in armoured and soft-skinned vehicles.The RAK15 has a low power uptake and only pulls 15 amps of power. With a built-in intelligent sensor, the unit automatically switches off if the battery power is getting low and drops to 22 volts; there is a similar over-voltage protection feature in the event of a sudden power surge to over 39 volts. The outside of the RAK15/30 unit remains cool-to-touch to ensure safe transit should the product be mounted on the back door of a vehicle, or be located in an exposed position. The cool-to-touch feature also gives the unit a very low thermal signature, which is critically important for maintaining discretion during military operations.
Constructed from a robust stainless steel outer casing, the unit is sealed to be water-tight, so that any steam is retained within its interior.

Contents remains hot for up to 6 hours after the unit has been switched off.
