The above section states that increasing the boiler pressure can increase the thermal efficiency of the Rankine cycle, but it also increases the moisture content at the exit of the turbine to an unacceptable level. To correct this side effect, the simple Rankine cycle is modified with a reheat process.
Because residential steam boilers are typically set to shut off at 1/2" PSI, very rarely do you see the steam gauge move. That is why the gauge face is so big.So you can notice the slight movement. The only time i raise the pressure up and use the gauge is if I am decontaminating the system.
