In this paper the design and operation of a compact Waste Heat Boiler, developed as part of the main generator package for the DDH 280 Class Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) Destroyer, is presented. The Waste Heat Boiler operates in a controlled system that converts exhaust heat from the generating sets into steam that is used for hotel services on board the ship. During the generally successful sea trials of the DDH-280, Waste Heat Boiler "in-service" problems developed over one year of operation in varying climatic conditions while being subjected to different input operating parameters. These problems included gas and liquid leaks, high-spot temperatures, boiler plugging, and inadequate cleaning techniques. Redesign activities were initiated to improve system reliability and effectivenss substantially.
