Complying with emissions regulations is an important concern for industrial facilities operating a boiler room. On the federal level in America, the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 were established by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to reduce pollutants that harm the ozone layer, air quality, and visibility.
While facilities value energy efficiency, they need equipment to also stay cost-effective and produce adequate steam. With Miura’s modular steam boilers, facilities don’t have to choose one or the other. Miura prides itself on equipping facilities with energy-efficient boilers that match fluctuating load demands and produce full steam in five minutes – no more energy wasted on waiting for burners to heat up.
When choosing a steam boiler for your facility, the amount of nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions is important to consider. NOx is a family of poisonous gases created from burning fuel at high temperatures. Everyday vehicles emit NOx regularly, but industrial equipment, including steam boilers, commonly emit it at a higher rate. Limiting the amount of NOx your steam boiler releases reduces occurrences of acid rain, smog, and deterioration of the ozone layer.
There’s much to learn when it comes to your steam boiler’s energy efficiency, so see our resources below for more information.
Several states have set stricter guidelines than federal regulations, and it is important to make sure you are following the guidelines in your region. If you’d like to learn more about your area’s regulations, a local Miura representative can help you find the right steam solution for your facility.
