SteamEye from Armstrong International Inc. gathers performance information from up to 2,000 steam traps simultaneously using radio waves. Monitoring system consists of a transmitter, which is threaded into the base of an inverted bucket or float and thermostatic steam trap; a repeater; and receiver. Steam traps that have failed are identified by location instantaneously and can be repaired or re-placed without having to physically test each trap.
