When the application calls for multiple boilers, a system with on-demand performance and modular scalability is a must for companies looking for an energy-efficient solution.
Miura’s MI System, for multiple installations, may be the ideal solution. It can save companies 20 per cent on average in annual fuel costs, provide equivalent boiler capacity in less than half the space, and reduce CO2 and NOx emissions. The system can be customized to meet specific needs and is designed to meet demand fluctuations.
How? The MI System can accomplish all of this because its on-demand system is different than conventional systems, where there are significant wasted energy emissions at load swings. Conventional boiler systems expend large amounts of energy to meet variable load conditions, and design limitations prevent them from efficiently responding to fluctuating load demands. But modular on-demand systems can help significantly reduce energy and emissions at load swings. They reduce energy consumption required to meet variable loads by dividing the output capacity among multiple small units, and are designed specifically to meet varying load demands.
The secret behind Miura’s industry-leading energy management system is the MI controller (MP1 200), a robust boiler control system consisting of the MP1 “master” controller and individual MT1 “slave” terminals at each modular boiler unit. The master controller monitors steam demand through a steam sensor at the header, and utilizes sophisticated software to optimize the staging sequence of individual boilers for best overall system efficiency. The MI System software includes a variety of pre-set controls for load management of a diversity of applications, with additional potential for customization of settings to precisely match site-specific requirements.
A single MI master controller can handle up to 15 linked modular boilers with outputs of up to 150 MMBtu/hr (4,500 BHP). For larger applications, several controllers can be linked together. By utilizing multiple, linked master controllers, there’s virtually no limit to the size of the application.
Whether you’re seeking to address small, point-of-use applications or larger, centralized/district energy applications, a Multiple Installation of Miura boilers is the ideal solution for the highest possible efficiency.
