Steam Trap

The Pulse IoT solution can reduce your energy costs by hundreds of thousands of dollars per year and minimize downtime

• Avoid production downtime

• Decrease CO2 emissions

• Minimize wasted energy

• Reduce equipment damage

• Eliminate unnecessary costs

• Receive failure alerts via email

How It Works

1. Easy-to-install steam trap sensors  positioned on each steam trap

2 Receive data readings continuously through secure LoRaWAN network

3. Users notified of trap failures  immediately through email alerts

4. SaaS network support and upgrades for low monthly fee

LTE (Cellular)


Anchor Monitor

Detect both open and closed
failures for peace of mind

Our steam trap sensors weigh less than a cell phone but are tough enough for any environment and offer higher  reading accuracy than other solutions or manual inspections.

They are equipped to collect both sound and temperature data and can be installed in minutes on on all steam trap types

Choosing the right steam trap monitoring solution for your organization is important! And you might have some questions about our our company, our technology, and how you can get your IoT monitor program started. Here are some of our most frequently asked questions. If you do not see your question here you can submit another question here or contact a member of our team who would be happy to assist you.

  • How do Pulse steam trap sensors detect failures in steam traps?
    Pulse steam trap sensors have both sound and temperature sensors that collect data to detect failures in steam traps. Data is continuously sent to the Pulse software application in the cloud where it is analyzed to determine if the trap has failed. Once a failure is found, the maintenance team is sent an immediate alert on their phone to replace the faulty steam trap.
  • How do you install Pulse sensors?
    Pulse steam trap sensors clamp on in a couple minutes on-to the condensate side of any steam trap and are designed to fit pipes of all sizes. Secondary sensor is then attached to steam side of trap. Here is a video that shows how easy it is to do:
  • Does Pulse require any on-site connections?
    No. Pulse wireless steam trap sensors communicate data to a central gateway using LoRaWAN (Long Range). LoRaWAN is a wide area radio frequency that is known for it’s ability to send data long distances and through thick obstructions with a range of 200 meters indoors and 2 km outdoors. The gateway plugs into a 120V outlet and uses LTE to communicate with our cloud. Once the data is processed on the cloud, it is displayed on the provided dashboard and alerts are sent out if a failure is detected. The Pulse monitoring system is very plug and play, requires no on-site connections, and does not need any extra configurations on the customer's end.
  • Can Pulse monitoring data be integrated locally?
    If required, steam trap monitoring data can be integrated into your company's internal asset management software using ethernet. Additionally, we can also send data to your cloud from our AWS server.
