Steam and Condensate - A basic overview of a steam system - The Boiler House

The air surrounding the pipes is also cooler than the steam, so the pipework will begin to lose heat to the air. Insulation fitted around the pipe will reduce this heat loss considerably. When steam from the distribution system enters the steam using equipment the steam will again give up energy by: a) warming up the equipment and b) continuing to transfer heat to the process.

Steam and Condensate - What is Steam and the properties of Steam

Steam produced in any shell-type boiler, where the heat is supplied only to the water and where the steam remains in contact with the water surface, may typically contain around 5% water by mass. If the water content of the steam is 5‰ by mass, then the steam is said to …
