Hi. Conical bottom tanks are standard, inverted or normal depends. Taller is better with higher slopes to facilitate draining. Volume should be sufficient to quench and cut 1 drum with no additional water input. Jet pump suction is typically higher than quench pump. Cyclones can work if properly maintained but most sites do not have them. Automated draining valves with some DCS logic is a good approach to draining the system routinely because operators don’t do it……So yes, there are lots of design criteria and I think that’s the short list.
