WHAT DOES WET STEAM MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Superheated steam

Superheated steam is steam at a temperature that is higher than its vaporization point at the absolute pressure where the temperature measurement is taken; and therefore, the steam can cool by some amount, resulting in a lowering of its temperature without changing state from a gas, to a mixture of saturated vapor and liquid. If saturated steam is heated at constant pressure, its temperature will also remain constant as the vapor quality increases towards 100%, and becomes dry saturated steam. Continued heat input will then "super" heat the dry saturated steam. This will occur if saturated steam contacts a surface with a higher temperature. Superheated steam and liquid water cannot coexist under thermodynamic equilibrium, as any additional heat simply evaporates more water and the steam will become saturated steam. However this restriction may be violated temporarily in dynamic situations. To produce superheated steam in a power plant or for processes the saturated steam drawn from a boiler is passed through a separate heating device which transfers additional heat to the steam by contact or by radiation. Superheated steam is not suitable for sterilization.
