How Does a Low NOx No-Furnace Boiler Work?

How Does a Low NOx No-Furnace Boiler Work?

One of the top advancements in efficient industrial steam boiler technology is the “no furnace” boiler. Miura’s LX series of boilers is a good example of this type of boiler. When implemented within your facility, a “no furnace” boiler helps to drastically reduce the emission of nitrogen oxide, or NOx, which is one of the most harmful types of greenhouse gases that human industry emits into the Earth’s atmosphere.

Having this type of boiler is not only beneficial for the environment, but it can also help your company in a number of ways. Of course, it’s important to understand how these boilers work and why they are so effective at lowering NOx emissions and enhancing efficiency compared to conventional boilers.

The key to Miura’s “no furnace” LX boilers is a cooler flame that allows for a more naturally controlled burn that’s spread out over a large surface area, wrapping around the tubes within the boiler. The boiler has much lower emissions of NOx than conventional fire tube boilers, which are far bigger and require a more powerful flame.

Depending on the specific boiler within Miura’s LX series, the emissions of NOx can be as low as 9ppm. Such levels are in line with both current and proposed regulations for NOx emissions. Exceeding these standards is not only helpful for the environment, but it can also help companies avoid fines and other types of punishment from regulatory agencies for not complying with emission restrictions. Thus, using a “no furnace” boiler has great benefits that extend beyond lowering your emission of NOx.
