A steam generator is a device used to boil water to create steam. It may refer to:
- Boiler (steam generator), a closed vessel in which water is heated under pressure
- Supercritical steam generator or Benson boiler, a high-pressure steam generator that operates in the supercritical pressure regime, such that no boiling takes place within it.
- Steam generator (auxiliary boiler), a steam-powered boiler used on ships to produce a low-pressure steam, from a high-pressure supply.
- Steam generator (boiler), an oil- or gas-fired boiler, based on a low-water content monotube coil.
- Steam generator (nuclear power), a heat exchanger in a pressurized water nuclear reactor
- Steam generator (railroad), a device used in trains to provide heat to passenger cars

Famous quotes containing the words generator and/or steam:
“He admired the terrible recreative power of his memory. It was only with the weakening of this generator whose fecundity diminishes with age that he could hope for his torture to be appeased. But it appeared that the power to make him suffer of one of Odettes statements seemed exhausted, then one of these statements on which Swanns spirit had until then not dwelled, an almost new word relayed the others and struck him with new vigor.”
—Marcel Proust (18711922)
“If Steam has done nothing else, it has at least added a whole new Species to English Literature ... the bookletsthe little thrilling romances, where the Murder comes at page fifteen, and the Wedding at page fortysurely they are due to Steam?
And when we travel by electricityif I may venture to develop your theorywe shall have leaflets instead of booklets, and the Murder and the Wedding will come on the same page.”
—Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (18321898)
