The importance of MRE heaters cannot be over emphasized. MRE heaters are self-contained heating units meant for single use, they come in handy when it comes to heating your MRE rations. Developed for the US military, MRE heaters are flameless and raise the MRE temperature by 100 degree in less than 12 minutes.

How do MRE Heaters work?

Just add a little water to the MRE flameless ration heaters to bring it to the boiling point. This makes theMRE entrée packet to be heated as well.

MRE flameless ration heaters contain powdered iron and magnesium metals with salt. When water is added the chemical reaction that ensues brings the salt water to the boiling point and effectively heats the entrée MRE packet, which is placed inside the MRE heater. The only area to be careful about is that the chemical reaction produces hydrogen gas and hence the MRE heater should ideally be activated in open areas or well ventilated areas.

MRE heaters offer Varied uses

Other than heating ready to eat MRE packets, it is prudent to keep a few heaters handy for a number of other purposes such as thawing frozen pipelines or even to be put to use as a heat pad. On account of its magnesium and iron powder, you can even use it to start a fire. The MRE heater’s importance in an emergency situation cannot really be overstated.
