The steam is then described as superheated by the number of temperature degrees through which it has been heated above saturation 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, under dynamic conditions some degree of superheating is often possible.
Superheated steam is not suitable for sterilization.
