A steam injector utilizes a pressurized steam nozzle to draw up water into a converging inlet nozzle, and then utilizes the Venturi effect via a diverging outlet diffuser to force the mixture into a steam boiler. Schematically: steam ->-motive-nozzle-> water ->-converging-inlet-nozzle->-diverging-outlet-diffuser- >=> boiler
