Which Miura Boiler Solution is Right for My Business?
The selection you make when choosing the right Miura boiler for your business usually depends on which industry you work in. Most people think steam is used the same way everywhere; however, each industry offers a unique application for steam. Fortunately, Miura’s product line is versatile enough to provide solutions for companies and organizations in nearly every industry
For instance, many hospitals and universities choose Miura boilers, because they outperform traditional fire tube boilers as the steam demand fluctuates throughout the day. On the other hand, over a dozen of the country’s leading craft breweries benefit from having a smaller Miura boiler that doesn’t take up a lot of space, and is less harmful for the environment than conventional boilers. Food manufacturers around the world have been able to boost their efficiency with the flexibility of Miura boilers.
Companies in these industries and many others have all managed to find the right Miura boiler that fits their exact needs. When it comes to choosing the right Miura boiler, the first step is knowing the difference between Miura’s LX series and EX series of boilers.
The EX model is more akin to traditional boilers in terms of appearance, although it utilizes water tube boiler technology. This innovative design allows plant operators to reach full steaming capacity in less than five (5) minutes from a cold start-up, helping all types of companies and organization save both time and money. This helps to reduce the amount of fuel being used, which, in turn, reduces operating costs. EX series boilers have the flexibility to run on fuel oil, natural gas, or vaporized propane. The external steam separator captures and recovers carryover, allowing EX series boilers to produce approximately dry-saturated steam. The EX model also takes up 33% less space compared to traditional boilers, helping to reduce the space needed to build and operate your new steam plant.
Miura’s LX series boilers utilize a similar water tube design. However, they are even smaller and more geared toward environmental awareness. Miura’s LX boilers are roughly half the size of conventional fire tube boilers, and like the EX series, they can produce high pressure steam within five minutes from a cold start-up. While Miura’s EX boilers can reduce emissions of harmful NOx to below 30 ppm, LX series are capable of operating with NOx emissions below 9 ppm. Whether you’re considering installing EX series boilers or LX series boilers, you can be sure that your new steam plant will be smaller, more efficient, and better for the environment than it would be with other leading designs.
