: I am investigating the purchase of a new boiler(s). The application is ideally suited for a boiler that can handle quick start-ups as we do not have a constant load. We currently run a CB 500 hp 24/7 but the cycling is taking its toll.
: While searching the internet I found the "perfect" boiler...Miura. Here are the claims: "We can offer reliable, high quality steam within 5 minutes from a cold startup, double the capacity of your existing boiler room, and reduce your fuel costs an average of 20%."
: Does anyone have experience with these boilers? Are the claims true?
: I know of a hospital that retired 3 ancient firetubes and went to 2 Miuras. The oldtimers were pretty sceptical at first, ( they are small watertube boilers ) but they worked out OK. Watertubes are better at load changes and start-up time compared to a firetube of the same H.P. Apparently the company is pretty good, providing all the engineering, controls even the deaerator. All I can say is give them a call and see what kind of warranty and service contract they have as well. Unfortunatly my friend working there has since retired, so I can't give you an update on the long term. Hell, you can allways ask them to show you proof, most legitimate contractors are proud of thier success and like to show off happy prior customers. Good Luck.
