“Miura boilers are famous for their reduced environmental footprint of low NOx/low CO2 emissions,” notes Hiroshi Fukushima, President of Miura North America Inc. “Miura’s exclusive ‘once-through’ fin-tube design requires less fuel because it uses less water, which it turns into steam in five minutes or less, providing very high in-service operational efficiencies. Miura boilers feature a smaller physical footprint as well, and the new LX-300 further advances that benefit with a new zero-side-clearance design that delivers the industry’s largest steam capacity per square foot of boiler-plant footprint.”
The Miura LX-300’s innovative zero-side-clearance design requires less space than traditional fire-tube boilers and can reduce boiler-room size requirements and installation/construction costs. The unique low-volume design of the Miura LX-300 in turn reduces thermal radiation from the boiler during operation. This allows for Miura LX-300 boilers to safely be placed side-by-side without the need for clearance between each unit typical of large-volume conventional boilers. Tested and approved by UL (Underwriters Laboratories, the global resource for product safety certification and compliance solutions), Miura’s zero-side-clearance design is certified to provide enhanced safety and durability in conjunction with superior energy and emissions performance.
Miura’s zero-side-clearance design is the ideal solution for boiler room upgrades that increase steam-generation capacity while conserving physical plant space. Installation of multiple LX-300 boilers enables larger-scale applications to optimize steam plants for superior energy management of site-specific demand requirements and load profile. The on-demand capability of Miura boilers makes them particularly well-suited for multiple-installation configurations in which boilers can be selectively turned on or off as needed, as opposed to idling on stand-by and consuming energy while waiting for next-demand response.
