GSM Telemetry helps prevent Legionnaires' disease

20 April 2007

Using GSM Telemetry you can help prevent an outbreak of Legionnairres' disease in you building. Legionella bacteria are common in natural water courses such as rivers and ponds. Since legionella are widespread in the environment , they may contaminate and grow in other water systems such as cooling towers and hot and cold water services.

 

 

 

They surive low temperature and thrive at high temperatures between 20 deg C and 45 deg C if the conditions are right. They are killed by high temperatures. Under general health and safety law you have to consider the risks from legionella that may affect your staff or members of the public and take suitable precautions. One way to implement such as scheme is to monitor the temperature of the hot and cold water systemsand avoid temperatures that favour growth of legionella. Using the IN4MA METRON GSM Telemetry unit you can easily monitor the temperature of the hot and cold water. Keep the hot water hot, keep the cold water cold, automatically measure the temperature of both and if they go outside pre-defined parameters then send a text message. The Metron not only gives you an early warning system but also an audit trail (you can prove the temperature was in the required bands).
