The CP Cases food container NSN 7660-21-913-1135 (modified) is manufactured from food-grade high density polyethylene colored in olive drab green and is designed to hold standard gastronorm trays.
The top and bottom shell assemblies are impervious to corrosion, are resistant to surface damage, are totally immersible in water and are washable in commercial dishwashers at temperatures of 82 degrees centigrade without breaking or becoming distorted.
The continuous silicon rubber sealing gasket can be removed for washing if required and is easily and quickly replaceable if damaged.
An integral pressure/vacuum relief valve automatically relieves any differential in pressure.
The top cover is secured by six stainless steel, quick-release over- centre fasteners flush mounted to prevent damage and snagging of clothing.
The containers have integral handles and stacking features to enable stacking six high.
This container has been in use since 1997 with over 20,000 in service in the Canadian Army, Air Force, Navy, Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Alberta Fire Service. They have been used in active service from the Arctic to Afghanistan.
