‘World’s quickest’ on-site Legionella test launched

Clearwater Technology has launched HC Rapid25, an on-site Legionella testing device that its says will detect Legionella ‘in just 25 minutes, instead of the current period – typically 10-12 days’.

HC Rapid25 will be used in all regular water tank inspections and Legionella risk assessments undertaken by Clearwater which include a water tank as part of the assessment. 

The company said: “By using HC Rapid25, our engineers will be able to detect the presence of Legionella in water systems on site as part of their routine visits, which has not traditionally been possible – significantly reducing the time it takes to respond to an outbreak, enabling Clearwater to take immediate action to control the risk for its customers.” 

HC Rapid25 comes in a simple swab-test kit, and has been validated for use in hot and cold water systems, cooling towers, decorative fountains, hot tubs, pools, sinks, showers, water heaters, fire suppression, ice machines, hot water storage, misters, sprinklers, air washers, and humidifiers.
