Field Sanitation Unit
The Field Sanitation Unit (FSU) represents the most advanced field feeding sanitation equipment – simply turn on the on/off switch and the single thermostatically controlled Airtronic burner quickly heats, and automatically maintains three 42-gallon sinks (wash, rinse and sanitize) within prescribed temperatures.
The Field Sanitation Unit (FSU) aligns with the Department of Defense's Operational Energy Strategy and helps reduced energy consumption with its patented heat exchange design and its use of the Babington Airtronic Burner, the world's cleanest and most energy-efficient distillate fuel burner.
The triple sink design represents a tremendous improvement over existing water-heating and sanitizing technologies used in the field.
Now you can achieve all three steps of effective field feeding cleanup – wash, rinse and sanitizing – easily and quickly.
No smoke, no odor, No noxious fumes
Safe heat for the Triple Sink Field Sanitation Unit is provided by the patented Babington Airtronic Burner, which efficiently heats each of the three sinks to perfect temperature for its function: wash temperatures between 110F and 125F, rinse temperatures between 120F and 140F and sanitizing temperatures in excess of 175F.
The exhaust from the Babington Airtronic Burner in the FSU is smokeless, odor free and contains fewer than 5 parts per million (ppm) Carbon Monoxide (CO). To put that in perspective, the Occupational Safety and Hazard Association (OSHA) allows 50 ppm of CO to be discharged in a closed room.
Innovative heat exchange design means one burner heats three sinks at once:
When the Babington Airtronic Burner is turned on, clean combustion takes place in a firebox under the sanitizing sink. The hot exhaust gases then pass through a highly efficient heat exchanger welded to the underside of the three-sink configuration. This heat exchanger has been designed so that the heat is delivered proportionally, as required, to satisfy the temperature requirements for each sink. The sanitizing sink absorbs most of the heat. Less heat is delivered to the rinse sink, and even less heat to the wash sink before hot gases exit.
- Operates smoke (and other noxious fumes) and odor free. The exhaust from the Airtronic burner in the FSU is smokeless, odor-fee and contains less that 5 parts per million (ppm) Carbon Monoxide (CO), well below the Occupational Safety and Hazard Association (OSHA) limit of 50 ppm of CO to be discharged into a closed room.

DoDs Operational Energy Strategy (http://energy.defense.gov/) and the U.S. Army Energy Goals – Energy for the Warfighter
In its Operational Energy Strategy, the Department of Defense outlines specific goals aimed at becoming more efficient at sustaining military force and humanitarian assistance.
- Reduced Energy Consumption
- Increased energy efficiency across platforms and facilities
- Increased use of renewable/alternative energy
- Assured access to sufficient energy supplies
Babington Technology supports the DoDs efforts to sustain military force and humanitarian assistance across the globe by offering solutions that use energy sources efficiently and by providing safe, reliable and efficient heat-on-the-move solutions.
The Field Sanitation Unit (FSU) represents one such solution in our portfolio of product offerings. It represents a significant savings in fuel consumption and reductions in carbon emissions over similar solutions in the market. That translates in less fuel consumed and more money saved.
