Hello everyone!

I would like to ask you if you could share with me any document or information about steam drum sizing?

PS: I was searching in the Google. But, I didn't find something.

Thank you in advance!

The purpose is to separate liquid water and steam. Is this information enough?
I am asking this question, because I want to gain some knowledge on it.

A drum to recover usable flash steam from steam condensate has different design criteria from a steam drum integral to a tubed boiler used in initial steam generation. A boiler steam drum is horizontal and elevated above the boiler tubes with very different-looking internals. You seem happy with the flash separator information provided, but know that there is a difference.

Use API 12J for sizing the separator based on gravity separation.
