Steam cooling, The Theory

Steam cooling is the opposite process of super heating and is in fact the destruction of Heat, however this function is crucial in steam boilers and other process installations.

As the cooling water is brought into the superheated steam, it will quickly reach its boiling point and will start to evaporate. The energy needed to do so is taken from the steam around the water and the temperature of the steam is effectively reduced. The graph below details two lines, with the blue line indicating the steam temperature, while the red line represents the water temperature.
