CONTAINERIZED LATRINE (CL) & CONTAINERIZED LATRINE SYSTEM (CLS)
EQUIPMENT DESCRIPTION AND DATA
EQUIPMENT CHARACTERISTICS, CAPABILITIES AND FEATURES
A summary of the characteristics, capabilities and features of the equipment is contained in the following
The CL is an integral component of the Force Provider system, and relies on Force Provider facilities to
provide the power, potable water, and blackwater disposal necessary to operate the latrine. The CLS is a
standalone system that, in stowed or deployed configuration, includes additional equipment necessary to
operate the facility, including a 3,000-Gallon water tank. The CLS requires connection to a power source
and onsite waste disposal or wastewater evacuation tank/trailer (WWET/T). The CLS may be deployed as
part of the Force Provider system or separately as required.
Either system can be assembled or disassembled within two hours. The CL and CLS are assembled,
operated, and disassembled by four non-specific MOS personnel; however, power supply connections
must be made by MOS 51R, 52C, 52D, or 52G qualified personnel, and the reduced pressure backflow
prevention device must be maintained by MOS 51K20 qualified personnel.
The CL and CLS normally operate in temperatures above 32 F. To operate CLS in temperatures below
32 F, cold weather components may be used, as described in WP 0011 00. To operate CL in
temperatures below 32 F, refer to Force Provider TM 10-5419-206-13 for Modification System Cold
Capabilities and Features
The CL and CLS are each capable of supporting 150 personnel on a continual basis. The container uses
utility panels for easy connection and control of freshwater, blackwater, and electrical power. The CLS
has a water pump mounted internally.
Both systems feature internal fluorescent lighting, an Environmental Control Unit (ECU), an exhaust fan, a
waste holding tank ventilation or draft inducer fan, one double sink which provides hot and cold water for
hand washing, one urinal trough, and six toilets. A waste container is provided for trash disposal. A
broom, mop, and mop bucket are supplied for routine cleaning of the container interior. For the CLS, a
shovel is also provided.
LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION OF MAJOR COMPONENTS
Both models are housed in modified ISO type 8-ft x 8-ft x 20-ft containers. The latrine modifications do not
affect the container's external dimensions or transportation characteristics. In a shipping configuration the
total weight is less than 10,000 lbs.
The cargo doors (1) provide access to the main entrance door (2).
Main Entrance Door
The main entrance door (2) provides access to the latrine facilities.
Exhaust Fan and Draft Inducer Fan
The exhaust fan (3) ventilates the container. The draft inducer fan (4) removes sewage gases from the
waste holding tank #2 (5).
