Legionella testing kit simplifies water temperature testing

Now available from Martindale Electric is the new Legionella testing thermometer kit, which quickly and reliably tests and monitors water temperature and conditions that can favour the growth of Legionella and other harmful bacteria. Carrying a risk of infection, such as Legionnaires’ disease, Legionella bacteria are found commonly in installations such as cooling towers and air conditioning and industrial cooling systems in larger buildings such as hospitals.

As water temperature is a key factor, the new ThermokitLGN Legionella testing thermometer kit can be used to monitor and test the temperature of both standing water and the surface of pipes and tanks that form part of a water system. The kit includes a DT73 thermometer with maximum function and two robust surface and immersion probes to simplify measurement in accordance with the revised Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) issued by the Health and Safety Executive.

Lightweight and complete with a soft carry case, the ThermokitLGN contains everything you need to comply with recent legislation, which states that all employers who manage premises with hot/cold water systems and/or wet cooling systems have a legal responsibility to identify any risk of contamination and to prevent or control it.

The DT73 thermometer is supplied in Martindale’s tough yellow holster, to withstand on‐site conditions and provide many years of service.
