How Do Modular Boilers Work?
Modular, on-demand steam boiler systems offer a wealth of benefits for businesses and industries looking for reliability, efficiency, and safety. Among the advantages of choosing modular boiler system are the ability to scale, long-term durability, flexibility in boiler room design, and outstanding energy and cost savings. Modular boilers function at a high level of efficiency and are well-suited for a variety of steam needs. Let’s walk through how modular boilers work, and what you can expect when you invest in one of these units from Miura Boiler.
Modular boilers work in tandem with each other.
Modular boilers are comprised of a group of small boilers that work together and function as a single boiler, with one master controller delivering variable levels of steam. Boiler size definitely matters, and smaller is better, especially when trying to make the best use of space. The development of the modular boiler was designed to deal with the problem of limited boiler room space, while also providing the highest level of efficiency to meet the needs of companies with fluctuating load demands. Miura’s modular boilers have a compact water tube design that allows them to deliver the same steam capacity as conventional boiler designs, thanks to their low-volume pressure vessel.
Each module runs independently of the others.
Every Miura modular boiler ships with its own burner that works separately from the other modules. One of the key benefits of the modular design is that if one of the modules needs repairs or maintenance, the others can continue working and providing enough steam while it receives service.
Rotating boilers last longer.
Because each module may be alternated according to workload, there is a significant reduction in wear and tear on each section. Rotating out units also lets maintenance technicians provide service without shutting off any of the other modules. That means you don’t have to worry about losing precious operation time due to maintenance or repairs. This feature alone can make water tube boilers worth the investment because you may save thousands of dollars per year in revenue.
Modularity saves money by improving efficiency.
Thanks to the ability to quickly turn boilers on or off, modular boilers conserve water and fuel that would normally be wasted by traditional boilers. The improved fuel efficiency can add up to a 20% savings in annual fuel costs. Another benefit of Miura’s modular boilers are the lower emissions of nitrogen oxide and carbon dioxide, as the boilers only run when they’re needed.
Ensure scalability with Miura’s Multiple Installation System (MI).
One of the main advantages of the MI system is scalability. With Miura’s Multiple Installation System (MI), companies can configure an on-demand boiler system to address their fluctuating steam needs. The MI system allows you to configure your system with the exact number of boilers needed to build to present steam loads within precise tolerances. From there, it is a fairly easy process to add units to your Miura boiler system to meet steam requirements as your operations grow.
