3 Reasons You Need an Ultra Low NOx Steam Boiler

3 Reasons You Need an Ultra Low NOx Steam Boiler

Environmental awareness is no longer something for certain industries to think about, it’s something that businesses in all industries need to take seriously. For any business that utilizes a steam boiler, one of the best ways to lower your environmental footprint is with an ultra-low NOx boiler. These steam boilers help reduce the temperature of the boiler flame without sacrificing efficiency, resulting in less nitrogen and less emissions. Here are three reasons why switching to an ultra-low NOx boiler can be what’s best for both the environment and your business.

1. They Boast Lower Carbon Monoxide Levels

In addition to lowering your emissions of NOx, these new boilers are also able to reduce emissions of carbon monoxide, which is also harmful for the environment. Limiting carbon monoxide levels is the best way for any business to reduce its carbon footprint. Being able to reduce both carbon monoxide and NOx emissions at the same time is a dream come true for any company that cares about being environmentally conscious.

2. They Pass Emissions Standards With Flying Colors

With a new, ultra-low NOx boiler, your business can almost immediately meet all emission standards and regulations. If you’re running out of time to meet standards that have been proposed or recently put in place, a low NOx boiler is one of the easiest ways to drastically reduce your emissions. Perhaps more importantly, you’ll be in good shape should emission standards for your industry ever change. With a low NOx boiler, you should fall well below the maximum emissions allowed, which means you probably won’t have to make any drastic changes in the future, even if emission limits are further reduced.

3. They’re Efficient

Aside from the environmental benefits, a new boiler with low emissions of carbon monoxide and NOx can also be great for business. For example, Miura’s LX model delivers fuel-to-steam efficiencies of 85% thanks to the model’s computer-aided design that offers optimal heating surface transfer with minimal water content. In contrast, a standard firetube design delivers 83% in fuel-to-steam efficiencies.
