CleanTech® shines in three key areas:
Standardization: The wash method and solutions delivery provided by the CleanTech® system is efficient, precise, and extremely consistent across all users.
Efficacy: We have conducted extensive efficacy studies in GLP-certified laboratories to prove that CleanTech® handwashing systems consistently remove more than 99.9% of harmful pathogens with each wash cycle. These studies were conducted on CleanTech® equipment using Meritech Hygiene Solutions.
Compliance: Students and teachers are motivated to wash hands more often because the CleanTech® handwashing experience is so incredibly easy and satisfying! Plus, Meritech's UltraPure Hand Hygiene Solution includes natural conditioners so that hands feel silky soft after each wash. Each CleanTech® model includes an automatic wash cycle counter which makes compliance monitoring and documentation effortless.
CleanTech® features twenty rotating spray nozzles in each cylinder that spray lightly pressurized water and UltraPure Hand Hygiene Solution across the hands during the wash cycle, creating a spa, massage-like sensation that students love! The amazing experience encourages increased use alone. On top of that, Meritech's UltraPure Hand Hygiene Solution contains added emollients so hands feel softer with each wash and are much safer on kids' hands than sanitizer. And last but not least—hand washes delivered in CleanTech® systems only take 12 seconds, so it is quicker and easier than washing hands manually in a traditional sink.
When comparing manual to automated handwashing the biggest difference is human behavior, every time someone washes their hands they do it differently. Most people really don’t rub their hands together and really work up a lather, getting all the parts of the hands efficiently. Some people use too much soap, others not enough. Many handwashing sinks on the market have water flow too low to effectively flush the pathogens off the skin.
Automation removes the human behavior issues and allows both science and engineering to take over. The same quantity of water, hand solution, & time all the same. The system has 40 nozzles (20 per hand) that are placed in such a way that 100% of the hand is covered. There are 8 nozzles at the wrist that direct all the water downward and block splashout. The next group of nozzles is designed in a helical pattern with both pitch and roll to force everything downward. The last 4 nozzles are directed at the fingertips. The cylinder turns around your hand 23 times in 12 seconds allowing the spraying nozzles to get into all the cracks and crevasses of the skin with both the soapy water (6 seconds) and then a potable water rinse (6 seconds) pulling all the pathogens off the hand like a tornado. The nozzle sprays the wash the hand like a nozzle cleans your car at the carwash. This spray pattern in combination with hand solution chemistry that is specially designed to work with the correct volume of water. Each hand wash event is identical thus removing the human variable. 100% of the water used in Meritech automated handwashing system is used to wash the hands, thus zero waste. Even though the time is shorter it was done by allowing engineering, science, & chemistry to work in conjunction to create the best and fastest hand wash. Check out these clinical studies looking at the efficacy of CleanTech®.
Meritech Hygiene Solutions are uniquely formulated for use in CleanTech® Handwashing Stations to maintain the appropriate chemical concentration (PPM) required to effectively remove pathogens and exceed regulatory recommendations while also improving skin health over time. Hands washed in a CleanTech® system with UltraPure Hand Hygiene Solution are left feeling fresher and softer with each wash, thus encouraging repeated use and great-feeling skin. These benefits are critical in creating a consistent efficacy result while encouraging frequent handwashing without the negative side effects commonly experienced with repeated traditional handwashing, like dry skin or chapped hands. We have conducted extensive efficacy studies in FDA-certified laboratories to prove that CleanTech® handwashing systems consistently remove more than 99.9% of harmful pathogens with each wash cycle. These studies were conducted on CleanTech® equipment using Meritech Hygiene Solutions, so 99.9% pathogen removal can only be guaranteed when using Meritech Hygiene Solutions in accordance with our recommended operating instructions. The use of other chemical solutions will negatively impact the efficacy of the hand wash process, can damage the equipment, and will void the equipment warranty.

CleanTech® handwashing stations should be located at critical entry points to areas where students congregate and so the risk of pathogen spread is higher, such as classrooms, cafeterias, and locker rooms, or where contamination control is essential for the safety to others such as nurses rooms and food preparation areas. The standard configuration of CleanTech® systems allows placement anywhere a conventional sink might otherwise go— where there is both water and drainage access. Our team of hygiene experts can assist you in determining the best location to place a CleanTech® automated handwashing stations in your school, and can even consult on the design and layout of new use areas.
CleanTech® units require the same service hookups as a clothes washer: hot and cold 3/4 inch garden hose connections, a 1-1/2 inch drain, and 110 – 230 VAC power. They are not meant to be used in a “portable” situation.
CleanTech® units require the same service hookups as a clothes washer: hot and cold 3/4 inch garden hose connections, a 1-1/2 inch drain, and 110 – 230 VAC power. CleanTech® systems may be set up with a sump pump system to drain to a remote location. The potable water hot and cold supply lines should be 3/8″ diameter minimum with a flow capacity of 5 GPM at 40 psi each. These lines are common and inexpensive to install.
