It looks to me like you're trying to make one of these
...only using steam bubbles in place of pumped air. I think you'll have a bunch of engineering issues on your hands, but why don't you try it out and report back to us? Just watch out you don't scald your hands! [DrCurry, Nov 15 2012]

||Bubbles create pressure in water. Bubbles push water both up and down. Pashute left with empty pipe, scalded hands and a large puddle of water to clean up.
||I believe this has been done with salt water and MagnetoHydroDynamics (MHD) technology.
||How IS this different from a coffee maker?
||The coffee that comes out is very, very weak.
||Prior to the Newcomen engine, there was a steam-operated condensing water pump that was just a chamber with a couple of valves ...
||No. They are not part of the motor. The electrons in
the electric teacup warming stick are, though.
||Thanks 8th! That link was worth all these years at the
