Miura’s BoilerMate is a proven, eco-friendly water treatment program that reduces chemical dependency and the cost of boiler operation. Used in Japan for years, these chemicals are ideal for Miura once-through boilers.
The main ingredient of BoilerMate is silicate, a corrosion inhibitor. Years of research and experience have shown that water tube corrosion can be controlled by balancing the amount of silicate in the water and the corrosive ions. BoilerMate controls the corrosive ions without the need for additional harmful chemicals. This environmentally friendly product supplements Miura’s other “green” benefits and provides customers with the best possible water treatment.
“We are so confident in this product, that we will guarantee your pressure vessel against failure due to corrosion when you use it,” says the company, one of the largest industrial steam boiler manufacturers worldwide.
BoilerMate users can greatly reduce the need to heat feed water, usually eliminating the need for an expensive Deaerator. This is a unique advantage that saves money on costly equipment “extras”, while also reducing energy costs and conserving resources. By operating the boiler at lower feed water temperatures, users will benefit substantially from improved overall efficiency, depending on the condition of their water. The solution has been proven to substantially lower the rate of tube failure compared to traditional chemicals.
BoilerMate is equipped with a controller for intelligent operation. The controller works in conjunction with Miura’s MI (Multiple Installation) controllers to intelligently regulate the pumping of chemicals based on boiler operation. Smarter operation reduces chemical waste and associated costs.
