The paper emphasizes the importance of making due allowance for fouling and cleaning in the initial design of heat exchangers for naval service. It describes briefly the design and construction of marine-type heat exchangers (lubricating-oil and jacket-water coolers, steam condensers, steam- and thermal-compression distilling plants and fuel-oil heaters), in addition to various design and operating procedures which affect fouling characteristics.
