Ration heaters are issued to troops and other members of the military and are used to heat their ration packs whilst on exercise. There are flameless ration heaters that are water activated exothermic chemical heaters. The ration heater contains a finely powdered magnesium metal that is alloyed with a small amount of iron and salt. To activate the reaction, a small amount of water is added and the boiling point of water is quickly reached as the reaction proceeds. These kinds of heaters are important as the lighting of a fire to cook could alert enemy troops to the location of the soldiers.
