Preparing for a CleanTech® Automated Handwashing Station Installation

There are a few things that will assist in the installation process of your CleanTech® EVO Automated Handwashing Station when you choose to partner with Meritech. Here's what you'll need to install a CleanTech® EVO Automatic Hand Washer:

Important Considerations Before Installing an Automatic Hand Washer

CleanTech® EVO units should be ordered with a clear idea of where the system will be installed. The following three components should be readily available in the area you choose.

  1. Power: 
    The CleanTech® EVO requires a standard 100-240VAC electrical outlet. In most food processing facilities, these outlets are already located in areas where handwashing is necessary. As the system uses a 6' power cord, it is important to review your intended install area to ensure that the power source is accessible.
  2. Water supply: 
    The station requires a hot and cold water supply with a minimum flow rate of 4 gallons per minute (GPM). The cold water temperature should be between 40-80°F (4-26°C). The hot water temperature should be between 120-180°F (48-82°C). When replacing a sink with the CleanTech® EVO unit, the water supply that was used by the sink can easily be used by the unit as well.
  3. Drain: 
    The CleanTech® EVO requires a standard 1 1/2” floor or sink drain for wastewater disposal. The drain should be located ideally 18” (45.7cm) from the floor. There should be no problem finding a suitable drain in a hygiene zone for food processing facilities.

Essential Components for a Successful Automatic Hand Washer Installation

Included with your brand new CleanTech® EVO system, you will receive an installation box that contains a welcome letter, a handy hand washing instruction sign to proudly display above the system, an installation instruction card, sturdy water lines, and a reliable p-trap. The installation instruction card serves as your key to unlocking the Digital Owner's Guide, a treasure trove of manuals and training videos that will guide you through the ins and outs of your new system. Here are two essential components that guarantee a successful installation.

  1. Mounting surface (if necessary): 
    The CleanTech® EVO Wall is designed to be mounted to a flat, sturdy surface against the wall. The mounting surface should be able to support the weight of the unit (approximately 90 pounds) and should be located near the water and electrical connections. A mounting plate is included with every CleanTech® EVO Wall installation box.
  2. Professional installation:
    Lastly, it's important that CleanTech® EVO Station is installed by a trained professional to ensure that all connections are properly made, and the unit is operating safely and effectively. Someone familiar with installing equipment in the facility would be the ideal as well as someone who is familiar with the plumbing and electrical setups inside of the facility.
