But the properties of steam will vary for different temperatures and pressures. In my domain wide range of pressure and temperature is present. And in my domain the steam enters as dry steam and leaves as wet steam. could you help me.

I was confused by your words above referring to dry and wet steam. Please be aware...steam is 100% water. It is not "humid air" or "wet air". Is that possibly what you were thinking?

steam is 100% saturated it is called dry steam, and when there is some moisture it is called wet steam
