Legionnaires' Thermometer Kit
Incorrect water temperature is a key risk factor for legionella growth. The legionella bacteria multiply in water temperatures between 20 to 45°C, particularly 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 above 60°C and distributed at above 50°C.
This thermometer kit can be used to monitor the temperature of both standing water and the surface pipes and tanks that form part of the water system.
The immersion probe should be placed in the water to 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 places or where the other probes are not appropriate. This kit comes with a traceable certificate of calibration.
