OPERATING PROCEDURES (CONT).
Heater Tank Assembly (Cont).
The first tray-pack should be placed in the tank with the bottom of the tray-pack against the back of the
tank, the short side down. Be sure the water covers the trays.
Close covers (6 and 7) on tank. It is not necessary to secure covers with the catches (8). The catches
are intended for use during transport.
Closely monitor the air pressure gage (9) on the M2 burner unit (12) while the tray-packs are being heated.
After a maximum of 45 minutes in the boiling water, the tray-packs will have reached the serving
temperature of 165°F (74C).
If the tray-packs are not to be served immediately or are to be served at a remote site, they should be taken
from the heater tank and put into the food container (paragraph 2-7I).
Continued heating of the water with a lowered M2 burner unit flame will keep the tray-packs warm.
(9) If required, another load of 20 tray-packs may be loaded into the tank.
(10) Upon completion of heating or warming cycles, the M2 burner unit should be shut off. Allow the M2 burner
unit and heater tank assembly to cool.
(11) After the heater tank assembly has cooled sufficiently, the water may be removed from the tank by attaching
the drain hose (10) and opening the drain valve (11).
