Solutions for avoiding risk of Legionella

Low temperatures in domestic hot water systems increases the risk of growth of Legionella bacteria which if inhaled can cause Pontiac fever or Legionnaires’ disease. Lund University, Kraftringen and COWI have worked on a report that investigates solutions for avoiding risk of Legionella when using LTDH. Kerstin Sernhed from Lund University (Dept. of Energy Sciences) introduces the report.

LTDH connected appliances – eliminating electricity topping of temperature

Kraftringen and COWI A/S have produced this report that shortly describes the technology and history of HWC (Heating Water Circuit) appliances, as well as traditional dishwashers that are connected to hot tap water and washing machines with both hot and cold water connections.
