Accurate wireless monitoring and reporting to help improve your steam system performance with easy, non-intrusive installation

Spirax Sarco announces the release of their new wireless steam trap monitoring system – STAPS Wireless, designed to deliver accurate wireless monitoring and reporting of steam trap performance around the plant.

STAPS Wireless will allow steam users to install a solution that will deliver continuous, accurate monitoring, without the need to install cabling. The clamp-on design allows STAPS Wireless to be fitted in areas which may have been previously unsuitable for monitoring equipment, for example in areas which may be too remote or awkward to install long lengths of cabling for power and data to be supplied and received.

There is no need for the monitor to be checked manually, as the head unit uses 2.4 GHz wireless technology to communicate performance details automatically back to the central receiver, where the data can then be interrogated using purpose built STAPS software installed on the steam users PC. The device uses very little power so it can run on abattery for a long time – if monitor checks traps a few times a day.
