Water Treatment and Chemical

BOILERMATE® Water Treatment

We are proud to provide 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 your Miura once-through boiler. We are so confident in this product that we will guarantee your Pressure Vessel against failure due to corrosion, when you use Boiler Mate. We are proud to say we are the only boiler manufacturer in the industry to offer a warranty of this nature.

Eco-Friendly Water Treatment

The main ingredient of Miura’s BOILERMATE® is Silica, a corrosion inhibitor. Silica is a naturally-occurring material ideal for water treatment in Miura’s once-through boilers. Years of research and experience have shown that watertube 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 our customers with the best possible water treatment.

No Costly Deaerator Required!

BOILERMATE® users can greatly reduce the need to heat feed water, usually eliminating the need for an expensive Deaerator. This is a remarkable and 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.

Proven Performance. So Good It’s Guaranteed!

Used for many years in Japan and also Thailand, the BOILERMATE® silicate-based solution has been proven to substantially lower the rate of tube failure compared to traditional chemicals. In fact, BOILERMATE® is so good Miura guarantees the Pressure Vessel and Economizer against failure due to rust and corrosion*. Miura’s BOILERMATE® is just one more component for an efficient Turn-key boiler room.
*(Based on the condition of the customer’s water, usage, and facilities, tube failure may still be possible.) For MMC/MMRC customers who use BOILERMATE®, Miura will repair or replace the Pressure Vessel and Economizer at no cost.

MI BOILERMATE® Controller for Intelligent Operation

Miura’s MI Controllers turn your boilers on and off (in Multiple Installation) according to load demands. Miura’s MI BOILERMATE® Controller works in conjunction with the MI Controller to intelligently regulate the pumping of chemicals based on boiler operation.

Smarter operation reduces chemical waste and associated costs. Competitors do not offer this option, and since high or low amounts of their sulfites can lead to rust, corrosion, and worse… on-site monitoring/adjustments are critical… and costly.

BOILERMATE® for Once-Through Boilers

Miura’s ‘once-through’ boilers produce steam in less than 5 minutes, an enormous advantage that saves money and conserves resources. Once-through boiler’s start fast and achieve steam quickly (in 1/10 of the time of a conventional fire/water tube boiler). Traditional Sulfate chemical water treatment needs time and added heat to activate with oxygen, and typically requires much longer preparation time (depending on water conditions and usage).

Miura’s BOILERMATE® uses Silicate that creates a film on the water tube surface and doesn’t need time to activate, making it more suitable for once-through boilers. BOILERMATE® is easier to use and helps to extend the life of the boiler.


The most common cause of overheating and failure of boiler tubes is when hard scale forms on the boiler tube surfaces. This scale comes from calcium and magnesium in the water. But overheating and eventual failure of the boiler tubes isn’t the only side effect. Efficiency is also decreased in the short-term because of the scale’s insulating effect on the heat transfer surfaces. A layer of scale just 1/8 inch thick can cause as much as 20-25% loss in efficiency – heat lost right up the boiler stack.

Miura’s new MW regeneration process is designed to deliver a more consistent, highly softened water supply, with the added reliability of double tank alternation, our system integrated Colormetry hardness detector, and a control panel that interfaces with Miura’s MOM and ER dashboard systems. Miura Water Softener and Hardness Detection can keep your boiler running smoothly and efficiently.



Miura’s chemical monitoring system provides reliable and accurate detection of BOILERMATE product levels to provide the ultimate protection for your pressure vessel. Consisting of a chemical level switch, flow sensing device and integrated chemical pump error check program, this unit is also compatible with Miura’s MI chemical control and MOM system.


Colormetry Hardness Detection System

Water hardness is a common cause of boiler damage. Typically, water-hardness levels are checked manually through the use of chemical reagents. Such measurements are time consuming and can result in incorrect readings.

Colormetry solves all these problems by offering automated reagent injection, mixing and evaluation integrated into the boiler control system.

  • Automatically monitors water quality
  • Controls MW regeneration if hardness is detected
  • Alarm and fault history logging
  • Easy reagent replacement
  • Compact design
  • Self-Calibrating
  • Connects Miura remote monitoring system (MOM) for added security and protection
  • Interfaces with BL boiler controller
