Everactive Targets Large-Scale Steam Trap Predictive Maintenance with New Generation of Batteryless Wireless IoT System

Steam Trap Monitoring (STM) Solution Now Offers Wireless Range of 250 Meters (820 Feet), Gateway Capacity of 1,000 Sensors and Per Sensor Installation Time of Less Than Five Minutes; STM Saves Money and Reduces Greenhouse Gases 

SANTA CLARA, CA – Everactive, a technology company that sells category-defining batteryless, wireless Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, announced today a new generation of its Steam Trap Monitoring (STM) system designed to deliver predictive maintenance for large-scale steam system applications. 

Everactive’s STM is a unique batteryless IoT system for steam traps that involves batteryless Eversensors connecting to a wireless IoT gateway using the Evernet 2.0 wireless network.  With core advances in ultra-low-power electronics, system-level design, and wireless networking, Everactive makes it possible to continuously and indefinitely power Eversensors from harvested energy, thereby removing the need for batteries. Doing so enables Everactive customers to cost-effectively monitor industrial assets at scale.

Everactive’s new generation—based on its latest production chip technology—delivers wireless non-line-of-sight communication up to 250 meters (820 feet), or almost three football fields. This means complete coverage of a larger percentage of steam traps with far fewer gateways required throughout a facility. Everactive has increased the capacity of its IoT gateways to 1,000 Eversensors.

In addition to a much lighter footprint, the next-generation architecture also speeds up the installation process with a more fully integrated and sleeker mechanical design, as well as easier provisioning with an auto-pairing feature and QR code provisioning.  Taken together, a single STM Eversensor can be installed on a steam trap and setup in the cloud in less than five minutes.

Saving Money and Reducing Greenhouse Gases

Everactive’s new generation STM solution targets the tens of millions of steam traps used throughout critical process manufacturing, oil and gas, and district energy heating applications.  With real-time insights across an entire steam system, operations and maintenance personnel can address failures as they occur and bank significant energy and CO2 savings.  

Everactive estimates that on an annual basis, worldwide real-time steam trap monitoring can save up to hundreds of millions of dollars in energy costs and reduce carbon emissions by well over 280 million tons—the equivalent of removing more than 60 million passenger cars from the road! 

Since the launch of the original STM product, Everactive has seen strong and growing demand for the product with several thousand STM Eversensors deployed.  

“Our current steam trap monitoring solution is a unique product in the market, and we are experiencing explosive growth,” said Keal Harter, Director of Product Management at Everactive.  “With the adoption of steam trap monitoring sensors rapidly expanding, we’ve upgraded the STM product to our second-generation platform to better serve the market’s needs.  I’m really excited about the potential this unlocks to accelerate adoption and scale implementations at existing and new customers.”

The company’s customers include a long and diverse list of companies, including 3M, Colgate-Palmolive, Hershey’s, Merck, Mars, Morgan Stanley, WestRock, the National Institutes of Health, and the United States Air Force.
