FAQ: How Easily Can I Add Units to My Miura Boiler System?

There are a wide variety of benefits to using Miura boilers. One benefit that often gets overlooked is how easy it is to grow a boiler system to meet your steam needs. Compared to traditional fire tube boilers, growing a Miura modular boiler system to meet a change in demand is actually quite easy.

Everything starts with Miura’s Multiple Installation system. Each system has a master controller that has the power to turn every boiler within the system on or off while also regulating their output depending on the steam need at any particular moment. In short, the MI system ensures that steam needs are always met by allowing multiple boilers to work in conjunction with one another. As an added bonus, the MI controller, which can monitor up to 36 boilers altogether, makes sure that each boiler is used in the most efficient way possible, which helps to cut fuel costs and improves the longevity of each boiler.

What makes the MI system so effective is the modularity of Miura’s boilers. Unlike conventional boilers that can take over an hour to reach peak steam production after being turned on, Miura’s boilers can reach full operating capacity within five minutes, even from a cold startup. This ability to start producing steam in a few short minutes makes it possible for the MI controller to get extra boilers online so quickly whenever steam needs increase. Boilers can be turned off just as easily when steam demand lessens so boilers aren’t running and wasting fuel when they’re not needed.

The compact size and modularity of Miura’s boilers also make it possible to grow a boiler system when long-term steam needs increase. Miura’s boilers are significantly smaller than traditional boilers. In some cases, their footprint is 50% smaller than fire tube boilers. This helps to create extra space in a boiler room or steam plant, leaving room to add more boilers when your company expands or your steam demand increases. If all the boilers on the system are being taxed and can’t keep up with demand, adding another boiler or two is usually simple because of how compact they are. With larger, conventional boilers, adding an extra boiler to meet demand would require a lot of construction that would cost far more than the extra boiler itself.

As long as all of your Miura boilers are hooked up to the Multiple Installation system, increasing your capacity is a breeze. The system can adjust to fluctuating steam needs automatically. Plus, if you need another boiler or two to meet your needs, the compact size of Miura’s boilers makes it easy to add extra boilers to the system.
