Overall view of the steam exhaust duct and heat exchanger.

Steam from the steam generator powers the turbopumps to supply the combustion chamber with propellants, after which the steam exits via the steam exhaust duct. Prior to being dumped overboard, it passes through a heat exchanger which expands gasses to pressurize the propellant tanks.
