Looking at purchasing a 50 hp ( 80 psi) boiler for providing saturated steam for a large steam chamber.
The water in my area is hard (600ppm). At times our water softners have been known to not work 100% all teh time and my concern with selecting a water tube vs a fire tub boiler comes down to which will perform best should hard water for a couple of days ( on the weekend) be an isssue.
The Miura has temp sensor on a tube that will shut the boiler down if it detects a high surface temp on a coil. This will force us to resolve the problem if it is a water softner issue. The Fulton boiler will continue to run at a lower efficiency. Running this way we may not know we have a softner problem right away.
What is your experience with either of these boilers.?
I know the Fulton will take longer to produce steam than the Miura. I do not need immediate steam but the faster the better.
