Saint Arnold Brewing Company co-founder Brock Wagner knew that his growing craft brewery’s move to a 104,000-sq-ft building in Houston’s Northside district would require a new steam boiler system. Saint Arnold’s original firetube boiler was struggling to produce enough steam to meet the company’s increasing heating and sterilization needs, so finding a new and dependable steam-generation source was essential.
Wagner asked other craft brewers what they used and he spoke to two major local hospitals. All told him about their Miura ultra-low NOx modular on-demand steam solutions. Based on their positive feedback, Wagner purchased Miura LX-200 and LX-50 steam boilers from Houston-based Burner Combustion Systems. He now reports a fuel savings of 50% on every barrel of beer Saint Arnold brews, in addition to reliable on-demand steam generation and other benefits.
