Armstrong’s SAGE UMT syncs wirelessly to the SAGE Mobile app on your iOS or Android mobile device. SAGE Mobile then delivers your steam trap information directly to SAGE Smart Utility System Management platform, eliminating the need to manually enter survey information or decipher illegible field notes.

  • Scan a trap’s RFID tag with SAGE UMT; SAGE Mobile automatically opens the details for that trap
  • Press the stainless steel probe tip to the trap and press the test button
  • Test progress will be visible on both SAGE UMT and SAGE Mobile
  • When testing is complete, SAGE UMT wirelessly transfers the temperature and acoustic information it has collected to SAGE Mobile
  • SAGE Mobile analyzes the data received from SAGE UMT using Armstrong’s proprietary, UNFCCC-approved, steam system efficiency methodology; based on the results, SAGE Mobile assigns a condition to the trap
  • SAGE Mobile stores the trap’s data, automatically pushing it to SAGE Smart Steam System Management platform
  • SAGE immediately uploads data to the cloud where it’s protected by high-level security and automated backups
  • Customers own their own data
