Water/ steam circuit: vacuum and density issues

Takes little steam to carry a large amount of energy; takes little water to damage the turbine

Major benefits of using steam as a heat transfer medium are that it is nontoxic, nonflammable, the equipment used for that is inexpensive and requires little maintenance. Nevertheless, you may experience system safety issues, early equipment failures, poor steam system efficiency, frequent boiler shutdowns from low-water level, damaged steam pipes and valves due to water hammer, vibration, corrosion, erosion, reduced capacity of steam heaters, and overloaded steam traps.
