One of the considerations in sizing a wet steam accumulator is the surface area of the water. Hicks "Standard Handbook of Engineering Calculations" 2nd ed. gives a limiting design factor of (0.3 x accumulator storage pressure in psig)lbs of steam hour per sq ft water surface. Does anyone have any other information on the safe release rate of steam from the surface of water?
