           When water is heated in a boiler, it begins to absorb energy. Depending on the pressure in the boiler, the water
           will evaporate at a certain temperature to form steam. The steam contains a large quantity of stored energy which
           will eventually be transferred to the process or the space to be heated. it can be generated at high pressures to 
           give high steam temperatures. The higher the pressure, the higher the temperature. More heat energy is contained
           within high temperature steam so its potential to do work is greater.
