Yeah, but after posting, I realized that the water itself is raising the pressure.

The vapor pressure of water at 126C (260F) is 35.4 psia, which is about 19.7 pisg (close to what they measured). I would've expected the measured pressure to be bit higher.

I'm going to have to ponder this for a while.
