How to Correctly Size a Steam Boiler for Your Business

Whether you’re faced with limited physical space, you’re building a new industrial boiler room, your company is in a growth phase, or you want to maximize steam output, it’s always important to right size the steam boiler system. Besides the physical limitation of the boiler room, you must also consider the minimum, average and maximum steam demand, so you can select the most appropriately sized modular unit(s).

If you opt for a conventional fire tube boiler, you may get the steam your organization needs, but these units tend to occupy a lot of space in your boiler room. A better solution is to choose boilers with a compact, modular design.

MIURA’S SMALL, MODULAR INDUSTRIAL BOILERS ARE A GREAT FIT FOR YOUR BUSINESS

When you opt for a Miura steam boiler, you get a unit that’s smaller and requires less space. Miura boilers feature a unique vertical water tube design, eliminating the need for front & rear door-swing space, and for tube pull-space that you would normally need to maintain a traditional fire tube boiler. Whether you’re reconfiguring an existing boiler system or building a new one, Miura’s modular approach to steam offers  far more flexibility.

SAVE COSTS ON NEW CONSTRUCTION OR DOUBLE CAPACITY

Miura steam boilers require less room than their fire tube counterparts. With the small footprint of our industrial boilers, it can help cut down on new construction costs, and in an existing boiler room, you can add units as your business expands. Either way, you maximize efficiency and save money. Plus, the lower overhead costs works out to 10-20% lower steam costs.

WHICH MODULAR SIZE(S) ARE THE BEST MATCH?

In the past, boiler plants were often designed with the maximum steam demand in mind, and decisions were made with the logic that extra capacity was a good thing. Over time, Engineers and Energy Consultants have learned that it’s equally important to consider if and when there may be a partial load demand. For example, you may only need 20-30% of the maximum stead demand during off-peak hours, or during certain times of the year. You may also find that the average steam demand is well below the peak demand, meaning that the boiler(s) need to produce only a portion of their maximum steam output for the majority of their useful life. Miura’s modular approach to steam offers the greatest flexibility in terms of satisfying minimum & maximum demands, and still achieving maximum efficiency during partial-load conditions.
