How Much Time Does It Take to Start Up a Miura Boiler?
One of the best benefits of using Miura boilers is how quickly they can get started up and begin producing steam. With conventional boilers, this process is typically measured in minutes, if not hours. However, with the on-demand nature of Miura’s boilers, every startup is measured in minutes and seconds. So, exactly how much time does it take to start up a Miura boiler?
Well, it all begins with the simple press of a button to start the system. Once the start button is pushed, the pre-purge initiates prior to the firing of the boiler. Within 15 seconds of hitting the start button, the boiler reaches the ignition sequence. At that point, the pilot initiates to prepare to fire the boiler. This leads right into the main ignition sequence and low fire combustion. Within 45 seconds of hitting the start button, the high fire within the boiler begins and continues until the boiler reaches the desired operating pressure.
From here, the exact time it takes to reach operating pressure will be dependent on the PSI level. However, Miura boilers are capable of reaching the 100 PSI threshold within three and a half minutes of pressing the start button. With this kind of speed and efficiency, nearly any operating pressure can be reached in less than five minutes using a Miura boiler.
Such speed is a stark contrast to conventional boilers that take much longer to get started and create a great deal of waste in the process. Essentially, Miura reverse engineered traditional boiler systems in order to address the many shortcomings of conventional boilers that often experience operational losses at nearly every step of the boiling process, including the start-up phase.
The fast startup times of Miura boilers are one of the most impressive advancements in boiler technology made in recent times. With such a fast startup, Miura’s boilers are akin to the on-demand nature of tankless water heaters found in residential settings, except Miura’s boilers operate on a much larger scale and are responsible for creating the steam for a lot more than just a single-family house.
