Targeting Legionnaires disease
04 July 2022
LEGIONELLA BACTERIA can thrive in installations such as cooling towers and if these systems are not properly maintained, small droplets of water containing the bacterium can get into the air where people breathe it in. It can then cause a serious form of pneumonia, called Legionnaires disease.
Digital thermometers are ideal for both hot/cold water systems and wet cooling systems, the DT173 thermometer is perfect for HVAC servicing and monitoring. It is a single input digital thermometer, supplied with a bead thermocouple as standard, and is compatible with Martindale’s full range of K type probes, including air probes, penetration probes and clamp and surface probes.
As part of the ThermokitLGN Legionella Testing Thermometer Kit, which also includes two robust surface and immersion probes, you can monitor and test the temperature of both standing water, and the surface of pipes and tanks which form part of a water system, and so meet the revised Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) issued by the Government’s Health and Safety Executive.
The DT173 has a measuring range of -200°C to 1372°C and a MIN/MAX/AVG mode for recording extremes of readings.
