Introducing ProTech XV High Volume Employee Hygiene Systems


Meritech’s newest addition to their line of fully automated hand and footwear sanitizing systems, the ProTech XV, is a bi-directional walk-through system designed to handle large groups of employees entering and exiting production areas.

Meritech ProTech XV High Volume Employee Hygiene System

Meritech recently announced its latest innovation, the ProTech XV. Developed to accommodate 15 employees per minute, the ProTech XV will sanitize hands or gloved hands with an E-3 “no-rinse” hand sanitizing solution and will simultaneously sanitize footwear as employees walk through with a high concentration of sanitizing chemical.

When asked why this product was developed, Michele Colbert the President of Meritech stated:

“Some of our customers asked for an employee hygiene solution that can handle large shift changes. The new ProTech XV system will sanitize a high volume of employees' hands and footwear in a short amount of time. Most of our customers will use ProTech as a “fail-safe” measure to provide a final sanitize of shoes, hands and gloved hands just before entering a 'safe zone' in a production facility after a complete handwash using the CleanTech handwashing systems.”

With an ergonomic “walk through” design, the ProTech XV utilizes two hand sanitizing troughs, each with sets of spray nozzles that apply a “no rinse” quat sanitizer directly onto hands or gloved hands while employees are walking through the footwear sanitizing pan.

The ProTech XV’s footwear hygiene system is programmed to automatically “Charge and Replenish” the pan with a hard surface sanitizing solution during use. This will maintain the sanitizer concentration level in the 800 to 1000 PPM “kill zone,” requiring no manual intervention to fill or refill the pan.

Plus, the ProTech XV is hygienically engineered to be easy to maintain and clean. CIP features like a tilt up pan for cleaning under the machine, simple controls for operation and the 304-stainless steel design for in-place wash down make cleaning and sanitizing the machine fast and efficient.

Like all Meritech equipment, the ProTech XV is proudly made in the USA and carries the Meritech guarantee, which includes a full five-year warranty on parts and workmanship.
