Budget Legionella Thermometer or Thermometer Kit, designed to help prevent the growth of Legionella bacteria. It is supplied in a protective PVC pouch with a Therma differential thermometer, probes and a FREE traceable calibration certificate. The Budget Legionnaire thermometer kit offers excellent performance at a price that represents excellent value for money.
Each Budget Legionella thermometer kit contains:
- 1 x 221-041 thermometer Therma 1
- 1 waterproof surface penetration probe 323-046
- 1 x 133-372 robust PTFE wire probe
- 1 x 830-037 zipped pocket
Incorrect water temperature is a key risk factor for the growth of legionella. Legionella bacteria multiply in water at temperatures between 20 and 45 ° C. A typical method of control is to store hot water above 60 ° C and distribute it above 50 ° C (care must be taken to avoid burns). Cold water should be kept below 20 ° C.
This Budget Legionnaire thermometer kit can be used to monitor the temperature of standing water and the surface of pipes and tanks that are part of the water system. The penetration probe can also be used to test the temperature of tap water.
The immersion probe must be placed in water to a minimum depth of 25 mm; the ribbon surface probe can be used to take the temperature of pipes and tanks, and the wired probe can be used to reach difficult locations or when other probes are not suitable. This kit comes with a traceable calibration certificate.
Current legislation means that if you are the employer or the person who controls the premises, you must organize a risk assessment. The revised Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) published by the Government of Health and Safety (HSE) greatly expands the scope of its guidelines on the control of Legionella bacteria in water.
The code now applies to all hot and cold water systems in the workplace, regardless of their capacity, i.e. the lower limit of 300 liters previously used to exclude domestic systems does not no longer applies. While home systems can represent a risk, the code only applies to the risk resulting from a professional activity.
This means that all employers who manage premises with hot / cold water systems and / or a wet cooling system have a legal responsibility to identify any risk of contamination and to prevent or control it.
LEGIONELLA TEST LEGAL RESPONSIBILITIES
If you are the employer or the person in charge of the premises, you must organize a risk assessment linked to exposure to legionella. The revised version of the Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) on Legionnaire's Disease: Control of Bacterial Legionella in Water Systems (L8) published by the Government of Health and Safety (HSE) greatly expands the scope of its directives on the control of legionella in water. The code applies to all hot and cold water systems in the workplace, regardless of their capacity, i.e. the lower limit of 300 liters previously used to exclude domestic systems does not apply more. While home systems can represent a risk, the code only applies to a risk resulting from a professional activity, but includes national owners who have the duty to protect their tenants against health risks.
