MODERN BURNER UNIT (MBU)
OPERATION UNDER USUAL CONDITIONS
The preferred method of re-fueling the MBU is through the use of the built-in powered fueling function.
To use the powered re-fueling feature, proceed as follows:
DO NOT USE GASOLINE!
The MBU has been designed to operate with JP-8 and certain approved diesel fuels. The
use of gasoline is STRICTLY PROHIBITED and will create an a fire danger and potential
Do not attempt to connect a fuel line to the MBU in the vicinity of any open flame. Ensure
that the fuel hose connections are made properly to avoid fuel spillage. Prevent a
possible fire hazard by having rags on hand to absorb any spillage.
When re-fueling using the built-in powered fuel function, the unit must be under power,
with the burner turned OFF.
Position fuel container (1) containing JP-8 fuel, equipped with a fuel can adapter (2), within 20ft of the
MBU to be fueled. If refueling an MBU on a MKT, the fuel can must be kept on the ground outside the
MKT. The fuel can is NOT to be brought onto the MKT.
Connect the coupling (3) on the fuel supply hose to the fuel fill nipple (4) on the MBU. Connect the
connector on other end of the fuel supply hose to the hose connector (5) on the fuel can adapter (2).
The couplings of the fuel hose should snap onto the fuel fill nipple (4) and adapter hose (5) securely.
Ensure that a positive connection is made to avoid fuel spill and ensure proper operation. Open the
manual vent cap (6) of the fuel can adapter (2).
Be sure that the MBU is connected to a power source as described earlier and press the POWER
button (7) on the MBU. Check that the indicators flash and the hour meter illuminates. Press the FUEL
button (8). Check that the air compressor starts and that the Fueling/Full indicator blinks as the fuel tank
fills. The Fueling/Full indicator will stop blinking, and remain steadily lit when tank is full. The air
compressor will also turn off when fueling is complete.
