FAQ: How Do I Prevent Hard Scale From Forming Inside Boilers?


The impact of hard scale inside a steam boiler is significant. It’s the primary cause of overheating as well as failure of boiler tubes. How does it happen?

Elements contained in hard water, like calcium and magnesium, form a buildup on the components of the boiler.

Preventing this damaging accumulation of hard water deposits is crucial to maintaining the effectiveness of a boiler. Hard scale buildup, even a seemingly insignificant one of 1/8 of an inch, can reduce efficiency by up to 20-25% due to lost heat transfer. That translates to escalating costs to operate your boiler room. So, how do you prevent hard scale from forming? Miura’s new MW regeneration process is the best way to keep your boiler room functioning at optimal efficiency.

Miura’s MW Regeneration Process

Miura now offers the MW regeneration process. It’s designed to provide an extremely softened and consistent water supply to your steam boiler. This new process can help to keep your industrial boiler room running in peak condition.

“Water softener will take a lot of the hardness out of the city water coming into the boiler that over time can produce what we call scale,” explains Brandon Hargett of Boiler Masters Inc. in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Double tank alternation boosts the system’s dependability. There is also a system-integrated Colormetry hardness detector along with a control panel that communicates with Miura’s Online Maintenance System (MOM) and ER dashboard.
