For specific lighting-off instructions, always
refer to your ships EOSS.
The following are a few simple suggestions to
make your job easier and safer:
. Do not operate any valves or start
equipment until you have permission from
the EOOW or EDO, and always refer to
. Always clean up any spills or debris.
. Report to your supervisor any condition
that you think may be abnormal.
on auxiliary boilers, refer to Naval Ships
Technical Manual, S9086-GY-STM-000, chapter
221, section 5.
On some classes of ships, you may find waste-
heat boilers. Waste-heat boilers are used by the
Spruance class and Ticonderoga class CGs. These
boilers supply the steam for ships services by
using the hot exhaust gases from the gas turbine
generator sets (GTGSs). For further information
on waste-heat boilers, refer to GSM 3 & 2,
NAVEDTRA 10548-2, chapter 6.
. Do not be afraid to ask questions!
An auxiliary boiler is a small boiler that
supplies steam for distilling plants, space heating,
oil heating, water heating, galley, and laundry.
These boilers have all the auxiliaries, accessories,
and controls to form a unit assembly. They are
arranged to operate as complete self-contained,
steam-generating plants. For further information
In this chapter we have discussed boiler
terminology, construction, types, components,
and function. To help you understand this infor-
mation, go down to the fireroom on your ship
and ask a BT to show and explain to you the
things you have just read about. This should help
your retention of the information you have
studied and perhaps provide you with additional
knowledge on boilers.
