Boiler Blowdown Tank Volume Estimation:

Who has a hard and fast rules on boiler blowdown receiver
sizing ?
We manufacture a range of Blowdown receivers and supply then to a
broad spectrum of companies.
Many use their own approximative rule of thumb methods for sizing and
some more
technical - we ourselves aim within the guidelines of publications
like PM60.
HSE publication PM60 is mostly re-produced here and you will see in
actual fact it
leaves plenty to the imagination.....

Does anyone employ a method (without tonnes of  pages of
thermodynamics
calculations) that they find reliable ?
Some smaller of our smaller operators of steam plant seem divided
over the 'best way' - bearing in mind the larger the vessel is the
more it will cost, so if they don't offer like for like they could be
priced out of the job.
