The Legionaries Water Temperature Thermometer Kit contains everything needed to monitor the temperatures of the water supply to prevent the growth of legionella.
The thermometer kit includes a Therma 1 industrial thermometer robust and easy to use that works in a range -99,9 to 1372 ° C with a resolution of 0,1 ° C or 1 ° C.
With an ambitious vision about to 10 hour battery life, 1,5 volt AAA batteries will last at least 5 years.
The legionaries kit includes three different probes for testing different elements of the water system.
The penetration temperature probe can be used to record tap water temperature, the tape surface temperature probe for the surface of pipes and tanks and wire probe for all hard-to-reach areas.
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., especially if a supply of nutrients is present, such as scale, rust, sludge or algae.
A typical method of control is to store cold water below 20 ° C.
Hot water should be stored at over 60 ° C and distributed at over 50 ° C.
The code now applies to all hot and cold water systems in the workplace, regardless of their capacity, that is, the lower limit of 300 liters previously used to exclude home systems no longer applies.
Each Legionella thermometer kit contains:
- 1 Therma 1 thermometer (AR005738)
- 1 penetration probe (AR005659)
- 1 precision ribbon surface probe (AR005852)
- 1 PTFE wire probe (AR005973)
- Countdown (AR005381)
- Tank of 70 Mini Wipes
- ABS carrying case
LEGIONELLA TEST LEGAL RESPONSIBILITIES
If you are the employer or the person in charge of the premises, you should organize a risk assessment of exposure to legionella.
The revised version of the approved Code of Practice (ACOP) on Legionnaires' Disease: Control of Bacterial Legionella in Water Systems (L8) published by the Government of Health and Safety (HSE) significantly expands the scope of its guidelines on Legionella control in water.
While home systems can pose a risk, the code only applies to a risk resulting from a professional activity, but includes national landlords who have a duty to protect their tenants against health risks.
