The Modular Fuel System (MFS) rapidly establishes fuel distribution and storage capability at any location regardless of material handling equipment availability. The MFS performs both retail and bulk fueling operations, and is capable of receiving, storing, filtering and issuing all kerosene-based fuels.
The MFS is composed of 14 Tank Rack Modules (TRM) and one of the pump and filtration modules, commonly known as Pump Rack Modules (PRM). The TRM can be used with the PRM, the Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck (HEMTT) tankers or as a stand-alone system. When used with the HEMTT tanker, the TRM doubles the HEMTT tanker capacity to 5,000 gallons of fuel. The MFS is transported by the HEMTT Load Handling System and the Palletized Load System.
The PRM has an evacuation capability that allows the hoses in the system to be purged of fuel prior to recovery, and is capable of refueling both ground vehicles and aircraft.
