Russian term or phrase: огнетрубные
Котлы на судне. Целая фраза: "Огнетрубные. Поверхность - 11.1 м3".

They're clearly refering to some kind of piping on the boiler, but I not very up on it.

English translation:fire-tube boiler
Explanation:
"Огнетрубные котлы - тип паровых котлов, в которых вода находится в межтрубном пространстве."

http://cultura.baikal.ru/liceum_1/gazeta/mangara/slovar.htm

"The term Fire Tube accurately describes the basis of this boiler. The water tank or boiler is a vertical tank not a horizontal cylinder as in the other boilers already described. Like the Cornish and Lancashire boilers the furnace is located inside the water tank. At the bottom of the tank where it is surrounded by water on all sides except the bottom. But take note, there are a number of brass tubes which extend through the boiler to the chimney. Depending on the individual manufacturer, there could be as many as 100 of these tubes.

These tubes allow the products of combustion (flame, hot gasses and smoke) to pass directly through the boiler allowing an extremely high rate of heat transfer to the water. In other words, the fire passed through the tubes, hence the name, Fire Tube Boiler."
