: Has anyone had any dealings with MIURA Boiler? I am looking at the EX series 300 hp steam boiler to replace our older Scotch marine units. This is a relatively new product out there. Not much Info available. My Boiler inspector has never seen one. or heard anything as of yet. Any Info good or bad would be appreciated
We have installed many Miura boilers with great success (Over 50). One hospital here has 5 units three of the LX and two EX. They have saved thousands of dollars on their fuel bill. Pay back for the first two units was in less than two years. One 200 H.P. unit replaced and handled the load of two 300 H.P. scotch marine units.
In regards to water treatment. Miura Boilers require the same water treatment that any other boiler does. If you feed any boiler with hard water it will scale. Miura actually has a thermal couple on a boiler tube to monitor the actual tube temperature so you can see if you have a scaling problem. If people have had problems with Miura boiler tubes it is because of careless water treatment. I have units over 15 years in operation that have never had any tube problems. The key is a water softener and good treatment. If a scotch boiler scales you won’t know until you spend a boat load of money on wasted fuel and possibly tube repair. A small amount of water in the Miura vessel means quick response, low radiation losses, and safety.
