Safety in water services — Honeywell at the 2014 conference and exhibition on Combating Legionella & Water Treatment.

Honeywell exhibited its latest range of water products at the 2014 conference and exhibition on Combating Legionella & Water Treatment in the Holte Suite of the Aston Villa centre on 24 and 25 September.

This important event concerned the detection and prevention of contamination by waterborne pathogens in water distribution and containment systems. It featured leading industry speakers presenting and discussing a wide range of subject matters directly concerned with water hygiene.

Opportunistic waterborne pathogens such as legionella are a continuing threat to the health of occupants of commercial, industrial and residential building where potable (drinking) water is used for hygiene, drinking and food preparation.

Diverse but highly relevant subjects — including investigation, analysis, system design and legislation were featured at the conference. There was particular emphasis on the ‘L8 Approved Code of Practice’ and ‘HSG 274 Legionnaires’ Disease Technical Guidance-.

Honeywell, a sponsor of the conference, exhibited water-control products concerned with reducing the risk of legionella, reverse flushing filters and the new Sea Hawk leak detection system.

Matthew Watson, Honeywell’s water-controls product manager commented, ‘Good practice in system design is at the core of preventing or reducing the risk of waterborne contamination.

‘Downstream of the water service utilities connection, a distribution system has to be operated and maintained to ensure the water quality does not deteriorate and cause a potential increase in health risk.

‘Thermal disinfection is an effective measure against legionella. This is supported by the Alwa Kombi-4. In normal operation, its control range is limited to a maximum of 55°C; however if a thermal disinfection is detected by temperatures above 62°C the valve opens to allow rapid distribution of hot water.’

The Alwa Comfort, an inline valve, provides precise control of hot water for pipe runs of up to 20 m and can be pre-set to 57 or 63°C.

The Honeywell stand also included the F76 water particulate filter with motorised reverse flushing, allowing for automatic remote operation or integration with water management systems.

Matthew Watson comments, ‘The 2014 conference and exhibition on Combating Legionella & Water Treatment was well attended, and a high level of interest was shown in Honeywell water-control products.

‘Legionella and other waterborne pathogens are a critical risk consideration in the design and maintenance of potable-water distribution systems. This was reflected in the speaker’s subjects and the interest shown in the sponsors’ stands.

‘Honeywell considers water control a very important aspect of building services and continues to invest in the development and marketing of products and systems that contribute to the hygiene, safety and economic operation of water management.’
