Our uniquely designed boilers systems are compact, which makes them particularly ideal for universities looking to replace their old, antiquated boiler rooms with a more eco-friendly solution that saves space and energy.

What are steam boilers used for on college and university campuses? When it comes to generating steam to provide heat and hot water for a major educational campus that includes both dormitory complexes and classroom buildings, load demands can vary greatly in a short span of time. Trying to accommodate a fluctuating load demand is best handled with Miura’s modular, rapid-start, step-fired boilers.

Case studies

Read the detailed case studies below for a look at how Miura has played a role in supporting some of the country's most respected educational institutions:

Duke University

Duke University's commitment to sustainability continues with a $25 million renovation of its East Campus Steam Plant, which includes a complete conversion to Miura's energy efficient natural gas boilers. As a result, the school can expect an average annual savings of 20 percent for fuel costs compared to other boiler designs.

University of Arkansas & Texas Southern University

With the installation of the six Miura LX-300 steam boilers, the University of Arkansas has reduced their environmental footprint and saved approximately $280,000. Meanwhile, Texas Southern University has dropped its spending on natural gas from $1.2 million annually to a mere $400,000 after installing four gas-fired LX-200 Miura boilers.
