ETI Legionnaire's Or Legionella Thermometer Kit
Measuring the incorrect water temperature is a key risk factor for Legionella growth. The bacteria that causes legionnaires, can multiply in water at temperatures between 20 to 45°C, especially if there is a source of food for the bacteria. I.e. scale, rust sludge or algae. A typical method to control this is to store cold water below 20°C, and hot water should be stored above 60°C and distributed at above 50°C.
This temperature kit allows the user to monitor the temperature of both standing water and the surface of water pipes. The immersion probe can be placed in water with a minimum depth of 25mm. The ribbon surface probe may be used to take the temperature of pipes and tanks, and the wire probe can be used to reach awkward place or where the other probes are not appropriate.
This kit comes complete with a traceable certificate of calibration. Current legislation means that if you are the employer or person in control of premises, you must organise a risk assessment. The revised Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) issued by the Government's Health and Safety Executive (HSE) significantly extends the scope of its guidance on 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 litres previously used to exclude domestic systems no longer applies. Whilst domestic systems may represent a risk, the code only applies to risk arising from a work 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.
