After 12 Years and 10 Million Hand Wash Cycles, Jel Sert Replaces CleanTech® Systems


In 2010, the Jel Sert Company and Meritech partnered to improve food safety practices. After examining the needs of Jel Sert’s facilities, we selected the CleanTech® 500EZ for their hygiene zones. CleanTech®Automated Handwashing Stations are clinically proven to remove more than 99.9% of harmful pathogens from hands in just 12 seconds with zero waste of water or chemical. The compact nature of the 500EZ allows for high throughput with a small footprint.

Jel Sert has now replaced 18 of their 21 CleanTech® systems with brand new 500EZs. The CleanTech® 500EZ turned out to be the perfect solution for their facility and we are thrilled to play such an important role in their daily hygiene process. The level of commitment to food safety, employee hygiene, and quality made by The Jel Sert Company sets a shining example for food processors around the world.

“We began implementing Meritech hand wash stations in 2010, and they have become the cornerstone of our Good Manufacturing Practices. Quick, easy to use, and effective!”
