Battery-Less IoT Sensor Technology Cuts Costs

By Matthew Dirjish

PsiKick’s Steam Trap Monitor (STM) continuously analyzes steam traps to deliver cost-saving insights across a range of industrial environments. Steam traps, which are designed to discharge unwanted condensate, are critical components in the vast steam systems utilized worldwide for manufacturing, power-generation, heating, sterilization, and other processes.  Despite their prevalence, steam traps are notoriously faulty; according to the U.S. Department of Energy, unmaintained traps show failure rates of 3-5 years.
