    Wet steam is generated from heating water , which then turns to steam, I suppose we can call it the first stage.

    The water content is high, that is why it is called 'wet' steam.

    During further heating stages, the temperature is raised , by methods like running the wet steam through elements inside tubes in a boiler, and pulling the heat from the fire through the tubes using a blower, superheated steam is generated, and the water content is much lower, called dry or superheated steam, this steam is much more energy efficient than wet steam.

    Wet steam has condensation within it (like hot mist). Saturated steam has zero mist but is not superheated (it is dry). Superheated steam has zero mist and is heated even hotter than the saturation point at a given pressure and must be cooled back to and below saturation before condensation forms.

    Saturated steam is simply steam at boiling point temperature. Superheated steam is steam at a higher temperature.

    wet steam is a mixture of liquid and steam at the same temp, dry steam has no liquid.
