Steam turbine/infobox The steam turbine consumes steam to create electric energy. It is usually used together with heat exchangers and a nuclear reactor.

Although steam turbines can be connected to boilers for use in conventional steam power, the steam produced by boilers is much lower temperature than the steam produced by heat exchangers. This results in the steam turbine working at much lower than full capacity. Because of this, it is not suggested to replace steam engines with the much more expensive steam turbines for this use.
