Slates: Companion TagsSlates™ are customized anodized aluminum smart tags that are fixed to your steam trap or any desired component. Every Slate tag is laser etched with a unique QR code, and a unique ID number, that you can easily scan using the Slate Pages app, available for iOS. Upon scanning a Slate tag with the Slate Pages app, you will be presented with your steam trap’s or any equipment's up-to-date information.
The Slate Pages app empowers you to track and explore any desired information using custom information fields (text, URL, photos, dates, location & more). For example, Slates fixed to steam traps commonly feature the following maintenance information fields:
- Component Name (e.g. Steam Trap #12)
- Component Manufacturer/Model (e.g. Armstrong Series 811)
- Photo of Component
- Map/Location of Component
- Date of Last Inspection/Service
- Copy of Operating Manual
- Purchase or Install Date
- Warranty Expiration Date
- Maintenance Journal
Your Trap information is also available on a Web Portal!
Get an overview of all of your steam traps & other industrial components in an instant by tagging your entire facility with Slates. Sort your steam traps by any field such as last inspection date, manufacturer/model, or component name for easier decision making.
For those facility managers with a large campus, with a number of buildings, Slates allows you to capture a GPS coordinate and gives you the ability to sort and color your failed traps in a map view. (red=failed / green=good)
The Slate Pages app was designed to make information about your steam traps more easily accessible. Your team can access, view, & edit any information with the proper user permissions, set by the account owner.
If you have a steam trap survey file that you would like to incorporate SLATES...send us the data in Excel or CSV format and we will generate a presentation to illustrate the merits of SLATES for your specific facility.
