It is one type of boiler in which water circulates in tubes heated externally by the fire. Fuel is burned inside the furnace, creating hot gas which heats water in the steam-generating tubes.

A form of the boiler in which steam is generated by circulating water through tubes exposed to the source of heat (as opposed to the most usual arrangement in which tubes carry hot gasses through the water).

I have worked with 48 hp Mckenna boilers and the flames and hot gases pass through the tubes which are surrounded by water.
