Monday, 9th September 2019 . New slimline operational ration heating fuel capsules and stoves that can be packed inside combat survival packs and ration heating kits have been unveiled at DSEI (10-13 Sep, Excel, London).

BCB International Ltd, the UK-based manufacturers of the revolutionary FireDragon  eco-friendly ration heating fuel which is standard issue in the British Army, have unveiled a lightweight 7g fuel capsule and accompanying folding stoves.

BCB International’s spokesperson, Philippe Minchin, said: “Our new FireDragon fuel capsule and flat packed stoves are ideal space and time saving items for a soldier’s combat survival packs and ration kits.

“The 7g capsules are made from aluminium which means  they can double as a cooker by simply peeling the lid off and lighting the fuel.  The fuel capsules will heat 300ml of water from 10°C to 55°C in under 5 minutes.

“The capsules are supplied with two ingenuously designed survival kit sized folding stoves.  The stoves are equipped with adjustable cup support wings and can withstand multiple folds and unfolds.”
