SteamEye® Intelligent Monitoring

SteamEye® uses a radio frequency (RF) wireless transmitter mounted at the inlet of any type of steam trap to detect temperature and ultrasonic fluctuations in steam flow. A central receiver then alerts system operators of trap failure.

SteamEye® technology is on 24/7—constantly reporting the condition of your steam traps (okay, cold, blow through)  for optimum energy system management and savings. It can be installed on traps in service without shutting off the steam, and its remote, wireless operation addresses the labor costs and safety issues associated with manual monitoring. The SteamEye®4700R features a remote transmitter that helps monitor steam traps that are difficult to access, such as pits or elevated pipe racks.

RANGE OF THE RF SIGNAL

In outdoor installations where the transmitter is within the line of sight of the receiver, the typical range is 1,200 feet. In facilities where the signal must travel through walls or floors, the range varies. Typically, the signal range is approximately 300 feet. If the receiver is out of the range of a transmitter, repeaters can be placed between the transmitter and receiver to “repeat” the signal from transmitter to receiver.

STEAMEYE® AND SAGE®—A PROFITABLE COMBINATION

SteamEye® automatically updates SAGE®, Armstrong’s revolutionary web-based platform for thermal utility management, providing instant validation for continuous trap monitoring. SAGE® can also be used as a stand-alone application, or in conjunction with both manual and automated testing methods.
