Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
    • n superheater In a steam-engine, a contrivance for increasing the temperature of the steam to the amount it would lose on its way from the boiler until exhausted from the cylinder. This end is frequently attained by making the steam travel through a number of small tubes several times across the uptake, or foot of the chimney, before it enters the steam-pipe.

In science:

E is given by the superheat factor SA(E) = 1-Ethr set as low as 6.5 keV before onset of the gel melting at 45oC; the stopping power is (cid:11) 100 keV/┬Ám for temperatures up to ~ 5oC above the gel melting point.
