Miura Boiler Inc.: Steam Boilers

August 7, 2004

The LX gas/low NOx Series of high- or low-pressure steam boilers maintain NOx levels at less than 220 parts per million at 3-percent 02, states the company. The company offers a special low-NOx boiler designed for use in the Los Angeles area. An engineered broad flame spread produces a controlled burn that results in low NOx. The LX Series design consists of rows of vertical tubes sandwiched between two rectangular headers. Both headers are encased in a castable refractory with only the tubes exposed to flame and/or combustion gases. The upper header is attached to the lower header only by the tubes. As the tubes expand and contract, the headers float up and down; according to the manufacturer, the floating headers greatly reduce stress and allow for the use of cold feed water without the fear of significant thermal shock.
