    Current Legionella Control Certificate of Registration

     Therma 1 Thermometer

    with interchangeable thermocouple probes
    .
    "Incorrect water temperature is a major
    contributor for legionella growth"

    FREE traceable certificate of calibration included
    wide temperature measurement range
    minimum five-years battery life
    .
    The Therma 1 digital thermometer is a rugged and easy to use instrument that operates through the range of -99.9 to 1372 °C with a 0.1 °C or 1 °C resolution. The thermometer is housed in a robust ABS case that contains 'Biomaster' additive that helps to reduce bacterial growth. The Therma 1 features a large, easy to read, LCD display with open circuit 'Err' and low battery indication and is powered by three 1.5 volt AAA batteries that give a minimum of five years battery life. The unit will power off automatically after ten minutes, maximising battery life. This feature can be disabled by the user, if required. ETI offers an extensive range of interchangeable type K thermocouple probes, for a variety of different applications, see back page for full details.
    Each kit contains:

    1 x 221-041 - Therma 1 thermometer
    1 x 123-160 - penetration probe
    1 x 123-030 - precision ribbon surface probe

    How using a thermometer can help control legionella in water. Incorrect water temperature is a key risk factor for legionella growth. The legionella bacteria multiply in water at temperatures between 20 to 45 °C. A typical method of control is to store hot water above 60 °C and distribute it at above 50 °C (care must be taken to prevent scalding). Cold water should be kept below 20 °C. How using a thermometer can help control legionella in waterIncorrect water temperature is a key risk factor for legionella growth.

    Legal responsibilities & assessing the risks

    If you are the employer or person in control of premises, you must organise a risk assessment from exposure to legionella. The revised Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) Legionnaires' disease: Control of Legionella Bacteria in water systems (L8) 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 a risk arising from a work activity. This means 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. These records have to be kept for a minimum of five years.
