Kelda Technology – Flying the UK Clean Tech Flag

Kelda Technology, the global innovators in water efficient showers are all set for a busy June as they fly the flag for British clean tech in Astana and San Francisco.

In Astana, Kazakhstan the company will be taking part in the Global Expo 2017, themed ‘Future Energy and Kelda Technology will be showcasing their range of commercial shower products at Global Expo 2017.


The first World Fair was held in 1851 in Hyde Park in London on the initiative of Henry Cole, a statesman, entrepreneur and designer, and Prince Albert. The Fair’s motto was a slogan “Let all nations work on the great deal – betterment of society”.


Astana EXPO-2017 has an environmental focus, bringing together the best green developments to showcase future energy concepts and also the best ways to bring such technology to those in most need. Representatives from Kelda Technology will be at Expo 2017 between 18th and 21st June.

The week before the Expo, Chris Jackson the CEO at Kelda Technology will be taking part in the Clean and Cool mission to San Francisco.


Clean and Cool brings together some of the most exciting businesses in fields such as energy supply and systems, urban living and smart infrastructure, automotive and smart mobility, agricultural and food, robotics, advanced materials and manufacturing.


At the heart of the week in California is a programme designed to help CEOs explore cross border opportunities, find faster routes to market and ways to overcome some of the challenges facing businesses in the clean energy sector.

Aerating Showers – Busting the Myths

Our blog post last month referred to an independent study that demonstrates the Kelda Technology Shower System is 20x safer than an aerating shower in guarding against harmful legionella when comparing the generation of aerosols which carry the legionella bacterium.


Not only are aerating showers a potential health hazard for commercial shower operators, there’s also a whiff of snake oil about them. Here’s our top reasons why when it comes to saving water and ensuring a decent shower experience, aerating showers just don’t cut the mustard:


1. Aerating showers are only suitable for high-flow mixer installations, applying to roughly 10% of UK housing stock which have above 8 litres per minute flow rate. Aerating showers do not work with electric showers or low flow mixers.


2. All known aerating showers simply restrict flow using flow restrictors to attempt to save water and energy.


3. Aerating showers restricts flow and aerate water to change spray ‘feel’.  Independent analysis has shown there is no measurable boost in performance.


4. Unlike the Kelda Technology Shower System, air is sucked in to aerate water.  Water pressure/flow is used to suck atmospheric air into flow through small venturi.  This disrupts the spray pattern as air escapes from spray plate but does not increase spray force.


5.  The Kelda Technology Shower System has an infinitely variable air boost control and water flow courtesy of the digital control module that drives our air module. Aerating showers have no control.


Kelda Technology Receives Outstanding Safety Results Following Study Relating to Legionella

A new independent study proves Kelda Technology’s innovative water and energy-saving eco power shower is significantly safer than competing eco showers in limiting the risk of Legionnaires’ disease.

Dr John Shrimpton of the University of Southampton has carried out an independent study that demonstrates the Kelda Technology Shower System is 20x safer than an aerating shower in guarding against harmful legionella when comparing the generation of aerosols which carry the legionella bacterium.

Legionnaires’ disease, is a potentially fatal type of pneumonia that can be contracted by inhaling legionella bacteria in tiny droplets or aerosols smaller than 10 microns during showering.

Dr Makin, co-author of the UK’s Legionella guidelines stated showers which have the ability to significantly reduce the number of aerosols they release offer an increased level of safety in relation to transmission of waterborne infections such as Legionnaires’ disease and should be of interest to leisure centres, hotels, cruise ships and the healthcare sector.”
Using a laser diffraction technique, scientists at the University of Southampton measured water droplet sizes from different shower heads and concluded the Kelda shower produced remarkably fewer inhalable particles of the size necessary to contract the disease.

Dr Shrimpton said “This is a really interesting finding that the Kelda shower spray form produces much fewer aerosols of a respirable size and so is safer in guarding against Legionella when showering”.

In response to the study, Chris Jackson CEO of Kelda Technology stated “It is great to be able develop the Kelda shower technology with our local university in Southampton. These results serve to further endorse just how innovative and revolutionary the technology in our shower is”.
