How to Find the Most Efficient Industrial Boiler

 

The merits of efficiency are immense. That’s especially true when it comes to industrial boilers. An efficient boiler room can save a multitude of costs over its lifetime.

As Miura sales representative Brandon Hargett of Greensboro, North Carolina’s Boiler Master Inc. states, “the efficiency of your boilers are going to pile directly onto what your cost of ownership is going to be over a 25-year life cycle.”

So, how do you find the most efficient industrial boiler?

Miura LX series boilers

You don’t have to look very far to find the most efficient boilers. Miura is famed for developing innovative, high-efficiency steam boilers.

“The LX Series boilers are equipped with a high efficiency rating right off the shelf,” Hargett explains. “When I say ‘off the shelf’ — that's without adding any additional combustion trim or flu gas recirculation to the unit.”

Efficient use of space

When working with Miura customers, Hargett often likens the LX Series models as the “Cadillac” of the Miura line.

Of course, that’s only in terms of their superior performance — in terms of their size, they are a far cry from the hulking presence of these classic landshark cars. In fact, the LX boilers have the smallest footprint per horsepower output. The compact size takes just 50 percent of the space required by a traditional fire tube boiler, and they don’t need the pull-space that conventional boilers require.

Low NOx boiler

The environmentally-friendly LX Series is also designed to meet low NOx criteria. Hargett adds that the LX Series models are made to meet “stringent low NOx criteria in certain parts of the country, just strictly based upon their pressure vessel design and how their flu gas temperatures and their burner flame temperatures run much cooler because we're compacting the pressure vessel.” This results in a high-efficiency boiler.

Unparalleled in-service efficiency

The LX Series Industrial Boilers have unmatched in-service efficiency. These units feature computer-aided design that provides optimal heating surface transfer. Minimal water content is required to gain fuel-to-steam efficiencies of 85 percent. A fire tube boiler generally produces up to 83 percent fuel-to-steam efficiencies. It’s important to note that, with actual use, Miura boilers can save your organization 10-40 percent on fuel compared to traditional firetube boilers.
