Steam is a widely used medium and is vital to modern day goods and services that we come to rely on. Unfortunately to some of the general public there seems to be a myth that steam is old fashioned and linked with the industrial revolution. Or that steam was only ever used in steam trains. We hope that this website will help to dispel this myth. By giving steam a ‘voice’ it is possible to illustrate how integral it is to modern life and how it will be used far into the future.
This site was created to be an independent resource for anybody involved in steam, condensate, and the numerous related engineering areas. This allows for the sharing of experience and making steam engineering fun. We are not a manufacturer, or equipment supplier, so we have no hidden agenda or alliances. Due to this independence we hope that the forums, and other part of our site allow for the sharing and discussions on a wide variety of fun and interesting topics. The result being an online community of likeminded people.
It is hoped that the content here will help to educate people who have no or limited experience in steam engineering, and to do so in language that the layperson can understand. This can only broaden the support for steam. As well as providing information and knowledge to the experienced Engineer.
We hope that you enjoying using steammain.com
