Abstract : Non-destructive testing has been applied to the marine boilers of Canadian destroyer escorts. Ultrasonic techniques are applied to the superheater tubes, radiography to the outside-row generator tubes, radiography and borescope examinations to the economizer tubes and ultrasonics to the water wall tubes. The non-destructive techniques are discussed in terms of the wastage mechanisms experienced by the Y100 Babcock and Wilcox controlled superheat marine boilers. (Author)
