Definitions

from The Century Dictionary.

  • That has been drenched or submerged, as drowned lands; also, that has perished by drowning.
  • A fire-tube upright boiler in which the tubes forming the heating-surface are surrounded for their whole length by the water to be evaporated, instead of projecting for part of their length above the normal water-level. This construction diminishes the tendency to leakage at the upper tube-sheet, because the tubes are not subject to such wide ranges of temperature change, and to such changes of length relatively to the outer shell, as the fire varies in intensity or the water-level is carelessly lowered.
