SenseLogix rolls out new temperature monitoring system in fight against Legionella

A North East energy management firm has devised a remote temperature monitoring system to help organisations in the battle against Legionnaire's disease

Energy management firm SenseLogix, which has offices in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham, a head office in Chester and another office in Wales, provides energy reduction solutions for the public sector, commercial, education and industry.

The firm has devised a new temperature monitoring system made up of onsite hardware and software which collects temperature and flush cycle data from sites, cutting the need for monthly temperature check visits and helping save firms money.

The software has a built-in alarm and report system which triggers a warning to any business if there is a sudden change in temperature, humidity or pressure. It includes a web-based dashboard for users to log on to and monitor their estate wherever they are.

The firm hopes the new system will help save millions of pounds for organisations and combat the spread of Legionella bacteria in water storage systems, which can grow and contaminate cooling towers and hot and cold water services. They are killed by high temperatures.

Jonathan Luke, SenseLogix CEO, said: “For customers to be able to monitor what is going on in their water system is an essential part of facilities management today, so to be able to offer a service which brings together temperature and energy monitoring in one place is incredibly important to building owners and service companies.”

Luke added: “Legislation regarding Legionella monitoring is very stringent and requires monthly onsite temperature checks of all public and workplace buildings, which costs companies millions of pounds a year across the UK.

“Our solution automates this data collection process saving our customers money and taking hundreds of thousands of business miles off our roads each month.”

Set up in 2009, the firm, which installed its ‘energy-smart’ technology at council offices, schools and leisures centres in Wales, has been appointed an energy-saving contract with Harrogate Council for its swimming pools and leisure centres.

It has also supplied an EnergyLogix system to Gestamp Tallent in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham.
