This type of boiler will generate steam by means of exhaust gas and oil firing, many different arrangements are possible, the one shown is the Clarkson composite boiler which makes use of thimble tubes for heat steam generation. The only restriction is that it must not be possible to have oil firing and exhaust gas firing on the same heating surface at the same time. If this were the case there would be the possibility of exhaust gas entering the engine room through the burner section or of blowback due to the action of exhaust gas and oil firing. There would also be a risk of poor engine performance due to exhaust back pressure, in order to avoid problems and ensure that full use is made of exhaust gases even at slow speeds it is usual to have completely separate oil and exhaust fired heating sections.
