New thermometer kit with integral timer simplifies Legionella water tests

Temperature specialist TM Electronics (UK) Ltd asked engineers involved in water temperature testing how their job could be made easier. The feedback was unanimous - a handheld thermometer with integral timer for one and two minute running times for hot and cold water outlets.

TME listened to the comments from the 2015 Healthcare Estates Conference in October and responded quickly. Just one month on and the company is already launching the CLEGK1 Compact Legionella Temp Kit, featuring the new MM2008 Legionella Thermometer with Integral Timer and the BSKS01-S Dual Purpose Temperature Probe – all for the special introductory price of just £120.

The MM2008 features one minute and two minute countdown buttons, making it much easier to use for timing hot and cold water tests - an essential requirement for Legionnaires’ disease risk assessment management, prevention & testing to ACoP L8. The BSKS01-S has a fully waterproof construction which means it can be used for both running water and pipe surface temperature measurement.

TME prides itself on solving problem temperature applications for its customers, continuously developing new designs and improving functionality in response to just this kind of feedback.

Managing director Tom Sensier explains: “Trying to look at your watch while holding a thermometer and probe is tricky and separate timers are obviously inconvenient - so our design department got straight onto the problem, quickly coming up with a practical design solution that simplifies the whole operation.”

Main Features of the CLEGK1 are:

  • Waterproof thermometer to IP67 (MM2008)

  • Integral Countdown Timer on Thermometer Display

  • Counts down 1 minute (Hot) and 2 minute (Cold) water running times at the touch of a button

  • Thermometer compatible with all K-Type probes with mini plug

  • High Accuracy

  • Wide temperature range

  • Waterproof dual purpose probe for liquid and surface temperature measurement (BSK01-S)

  • Thermometer for Life Guarantee                   

    The CKEGK1 is the latest addition to the company’s range of temperature monitoring equipment for Legionella Water Temperature Testing and is fully compatible with its other innovative products including the low cost TCWallPort for spot cheks on test points with difficult or impaired access using its K Type Fine Wire Thermocouple probes.
