How does a steam engine smokebox work?
A steam engine’s smokebox is a chamber located near the front of the engine that holds the exhaust from the piston to the smoke stack. Inside the smokebox, the exhaust gases are passed through a baffle plate or fire brick wall. This helps the engine to maintain a draft, which keeps the fire burning in the firebox and ensures an adequate supply of fuel. The boiler water out of the superheater is used to cool the exhaust gases as they travel through the smokebox. This helps to maintain a steady temperature and reduces the overall emissions from the engine.

What causes condensate to flood in a steam pressure tank?
Condensate can flood a steam pressure tank if it is not being drained properly. If the system is not maintained and vents, drains, and traps become clogged, the pressure tank can fill up with condensate, causing it to flood. If a steam trap is malfunctioning, or if there is no steam trap, then condensate will also build up and flood the tank.
