Climate change does not only affect the weather but also spreads dangerous bacteria.
These bacteria force Municipalities and Building Managers to think innovatively when it comes to preventing and identifying Legionella in public buildings and institutions.
Identifying exactly where in the pipes the bacteria are spreading, has past been complicated in the past. Inspecting miles and miles of pipes can be a challenge, so when Silkeborg Municipality started screening local nursing homes for Legionella, they welcomed ReMoni’s solution that – not only tells where the outbreak is located – but even predicts where it is likely to appear.
“We have a limited amount of time to solve our tasks. With the FlowMoni sensor we can get the results immediately and get the job done quicker,” leading engineer Jesper Buchardt explains.
“We place the sensors strategically to monitor where there is backflow or accidental warming of the cold water, which should normally be below 20 °C to avoid bacteria.”
Results right away
Since the sensors are wireless and flexible, it is easy to monitor single units and get accurate results.
“We do have other monitor equipment available, but a configuration of the systems can both be time-consuming and challenging. ReMoni’s sensors really live up to our expectations, because of the easy installation. We can read the results right away,” Jesper Buchardt explains.
Predicting risk of bacteria formation
By combining artificial intelligence and IoT the sensors register the temperatures. ReMoni’s solution can predict where there is a risk of bacteria formation, and if there is a risk, an alarm is sent to the Building Manager in charge. In that way, it is possible to prevent the outbreak.
CEO at ReMoni, Bo Eskerod Madsen explains:
“As a Municipality or business, there’s a lot of money to be saved because you can install the sensors yourself and read the data in real time – and we offer the solution at a fraction of the other available products on the market.”
