Wireless Steam Trap Monitoring System
Category: Wireless Steam Trap Monitoring System
Type: SteamEye®
Model: All Models
General:
The wireless steam trap monitoring installation will require a multi-step process to insure proper
installation and operation of the system. The manufacturer of this wireless monitoring system will provide
factory qualified technicians to perform the following steps:
1. Steam Trap Survey with details on trap location, trap type, pressures, etc., including data entry
and reports. Essential data collection for the steam trap survey include:
a.
b.
c.
d.
e.
f.
g.
h.
i.
j.
Trap Location – Including Elevation
Tag #’s
Trap model & Part number
Application of Trap
Pressure
Line size in
Constant or Modulating Pressure
Time in Service
Inlet Outlet Valve Information & Strainer
Other Recommendations
2. Radio Frequency (RF) Survey: Performed to determine signal strength, location and quantity of
repeaters and other equipment required (spreadsheet included). Upon request, the survey can
include repeater mapping of facility to assist with future installation.
3. Application/Transmitter Survey: Performed to determine appropriate transmitter for the
application based on pressure, location, equipment being serviced, etc. This will also determine
the feasibility of monitoring the application
4.
High Pressure Steam Trap Wireless Monitoring
a. Provide a wireless, radio frequency steam trap monitoring system which alerts the
moment a steam trap fails.
b. System shall include transmitters which measure a blow through condition utilizing
ultrasonic and a cold condition via temperature.
c. Applications operating under modulating steam pressure should include appropriate
pressure switch to override steam trap monitor if steam system pressure is shut off due to
the process. Use of pressure switch avoids a false “Cold” trap status.
d. Transmitters shall be mounted externally to the trap and be non-intrusive to existing
piping. A waveguide shall be mounted upstream of the trap and shall not require any
external chamber for sensing.

e. Provide transmitters that are intrinsically safe and can be installed in industrial
environments.
f. Radio frequency communication shall use narrow-band spread spectrum technology and
transmit on the frequency range of 902-928 MHz.
g. Transmitters shall have the capability to be mounted in any 360 degree position in
relation to the piping.
h. Transmitters shall be powered by a standard lithium battery and have an average life of 5
years.
i. Repeaters shall be mounted in areas where 120 volt power is available. The repeaters
shall also be wireless. Repeaters shall be mounted in weather tight, P6 rated enclosures.
j. Radio frequency monitoring system will be factory programmed and adjusted. System will
come complete with waveguides (transmitter mounting hardware).
5. Low Pressure Steam Trap Wireless Monitoring
a. Provide a wireless, radio frequency steam trap monitoring system which alerts the
moment a steam trap fails.
b. System shall include transmitters which measure a blow through condition utilizing
ultrasonic or conductivity and a cold condition via temperature.
c. Applications operating under modulating steam pressure should include appropriate
pressure switch to override steam trap monitor if steam system pressure is shut off due to
the process. Use of pressure switch avoids a false “Cold” trap status.
d. Provide transmitters that are intrinsically safe and can be installed in industrial
environments.
e. Radio frequency communication shall use narrow band spread spectrum technology and
transmit on the frequency range of 902-928 MHz.
f. Transmitters shall be powered by a standard lithium battery and have an average life of 5
years
g. Repeaters shall be mounted in areas where 120 volt power is available. The repeaters
shall also be wireless. . Repeaters shall be mounted in weather tight P6 rated enclosures.
h. Radio frequency monitoring system will be factory programmed and adjusted. System will
come complete with waveguides (transmitter mounting hardware).
6. Wireless Trap Monitor Gateway receiver
a.
b.
c.
d.
e.
f.
Shall be constructed with solid state electronic components.
Shall use TCP/IP over Ethernet
Available Modbus 485 output for control system integration
Shall receive communications in the 902-928 MHz spectrum
Shall be capable of receiving and storing information from up to 2000 monitors.
Shall have the capability to be installed on the VA network and will allow for trap
monitoring information to be accessed from any network computer via web browser. Or
installed as a “stand alone” system where trap monitoring information can be accessed
through only the computer it is connected to.
®
g. Shall be capable of integrating with steam trap management software (SteamStar )
7. Repeaters (wireless communication infrastructure)
a. Receive signals from nearly unlimited number of transmitters operating on the 902-928
MHz spectrum
b. Operate on 120 VAC power from a typical outlet
c. Shall be able to be tracked in the receiver to allow for simple system troubleshooting.
