Superheater converts wet, saturated steam into dry steam. Superheaters provide the beneficial part of the steam cycle, as the dry steam contains more thermal energy and increases the overall efficiency of the cycle.
A vertical type of superheater is located in the third pass of a boiler. The saturated steam is converted into superheated steam extracted from the upper drum and pass to the superheater through collecting tubes.
