Hello, Dear members of the forum!

 

I hope you could help me.

 

I am designing tank with heater inside and have hesitation, should I include free board height in total tank height? How can I calculate free board height?

As I know free board height is connected with overflow nozzle size (which standart I can use for nozzle size)?

See attached sketch of tank.

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Best Regards,

Aidan

Aidan,

 

If the tank design code is API 650 (11th EDITION), you can follow the section E.7.2 (FREEBOARD) for your requirement...
