FPU-8/12 Container Configurations
When configured for parts, the container has an FPU-8 container with four short/modules. Each module
consists of one 8-inch drawer, three 6-inch drawers, one 4-inch drawer and a basket mounted on top. It
is linked with an FPU-12 container that is configured with sixteen 12-inch medium drawers, four 2-inch
medium drawers, two 8-inch small drawers, and two 2-inch small drawers. The 12-inch drawers have
adjustable dividers. The 8-inch and 2-inch drawers are provided with cargo nets to secure material.
When the FPU 8/12 is configured for bulk, the FPU-8 container has four large pallets with two 60-inch
ratchet straps to secure material. Additionally, it is linked with an FPU-12 that is configured with six
medium pallets, two medium HAZMAT pallets, three small pallets and one small HAZMAT pallet. Each
HAZMAT pallet is equipped with a cargo net to secure material. The HAZMAT pallets are eight inches
deep and lined with a corrosion resistant material to act as secondary containment for stored materials.
LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION OF MAJOR COMPONENTS
The Field Pack-Up Unit (FPU) when joined in a twenty-foot configuration is capable of transport via the
HEMTT utilizing the built in bail bar and attachable rear rollers. Each 20-foot container consists of an
eight and twelve foot container in either a parts or bulk configuration.
The FPU-8 series container is available in both parts and bulk configurations: The parts configuration
utilizes two floor adapter plates (FAP) to lock down four modules; the bulk configuration utilizes stowage
racks to hold four pallets. The FPU-8 series containers are designed to be transported by standard
material handling equipment (MHE), palletized loading systems, various load handling systems, standard
transportation systems, and dolly set-mobilizer systems. The tubular steel construction with ISO corner
blocks enables them to be stacked or sling-loaded. FPU-8 series containers accommodate a full range of
storage / shipping modules and bulk pallets.
The FPU-12 has four bi-fold doors each side and a 12-pallet rack system. This system offers a wide
range of use from large and bulky material to small and medium items. The FPU-12 and FPU8 series
combine to form a 20-foot system using the horizontal interconnectors.
Adjustable Pallets and Drawers
The ASLMS is designed to store and ship bulk material as well as small parts. Pallets come in small,
medium and large sizes. All pallets come with two-inch ratchet straps or cargo netting. Drawers consist of
2-inch, 8-inch and 12-inch deep varieties in small or medium widths. The HAZMAT pallets are eight
inches deep and lined with a corrosion resistant material to act as secondary containment for stored
material. Each pallet or drawer height is user adjustable in 4-inch increments; appropriate MHE should be
used for making any adjustments.
Features a five-drawer lower half consisting of one 4-inch, three 6-inch and one 8-inch drawer with an
upper half removable stand-alone basket. The basket includes split adjustable shelves and a two-stage,
opening door. The module is designed for "3G" force conditions.
