The Naval Boiler and Turbine Laboratory has recently completed an evaluation and development program of a supercharged steam generator system. The installation for this program was the only one of its type in the United States.

Modifications required during the development and the test results obtained are briefly discussed. As a result of this program, supercharged steam generators are being installed in the Navy’s DE1040 Class ships.
