Effective Steam Trapping
Armstrong steam traps are designed for energy efficiency, minimal steam loss, corrosion resistance and long, dependable service. We offer a complete range of steam traps including: inverted bucket steam traps, bimetallic super heat steam traps, clean steam thermostatic steam traps, disc steam traps, dual orifice steam traps, float and thermostatic steam traps, radiator traps, trap valve stations and more.
Armstrong offers a full range of condensate recovery and management products and solutions, including pumps. We can help you reduce costs for: fuel and energy, boiler water makeup and sewage treatment, and boiler water chemical treatment.
Wireless Steam System Monitoring
Armstrong offers superior, groundbreaking solutions that provide real-time monitoring of your critical steam trap population. You receive instantaneous notifications of any problems, enabling you to repair or replace failed traps before they create serious steam quality issues.
Both SteamEye® and AIM® can communicate with SAGE®, allowing the user to continuously monitor critical traps and survey the entire trap population, all in the same database.
AIM® (Armstrong Intelligent Monitoring
AIM® is a wireless monitoring technology built on the WirelessHART and ISA-100 communications protocols, which continuously monitors and evaluates the operating condition of steam traps and other critical equipment in your system. AIM® provides instantaneous notification in the event of steam trap or critical equipment failure.
SteamEye® uses a proprietary wireless transmitter mounted at the inlet of any type of steam trap to detect temperature and ultrasonic fluctuations in steam flow. In the event of steam trap failure, a signal is sent to a central receiver, alerting system operators that maintenance is required.
SAGE® Smart Utility System Management
SAGE® keeps you fully informed, 24 hours a day with regular updates, precise documentation, custom-filtered reports, and real-time alerts notifying you of any problems. SAGE® work seamlessly with our real-time monitoring products (SteamEye®, AIM®, and The Brain®), ensuring that it always has access to the most current data.
SAGE® works harder to make your life easier.
- Survey steam traps quickly and accurately with SAGE UMT™ and SAGE® Mobile
- Maximize your equipment's reliability, efficiency and safety
- Customizable user experience
- Accessible on tablets, laptops and PCs
