Proper hygiene is the best way to prevent the spread of dangerous pathogens. Unfortunately, making sure your team is following all hygiene SOPs to ensure food safety each and every time is difficult. So can you overcome the variability of human behavior and ensure handwashing compliance for food safety at your facility?
Our fully automated handwashing stations for food manufacturing is clinically proven to remove more than 99.9% of harmful pathogens in seconds. We also offer educational guides and resources such as employee handwashing posters and food safety day kits to help you reinforce proper hygiene behaviors with your team.
We've spent three decades developing and perfecting technology that blends engineering, science, and chemistry to automate the process, overcome human variability and provide a vastly more effective and consistent hygiene event.

Poor hygiene significantly impacts the health and safety of food manufacturing employees, food safety, and ultimately—your customers. No matter how stringent your food safety handwashing procedures and SSOPs are, humans are prone to variability and error, resulting in poor hand hygiene in food processing and the spread of harmful pathogen at your food production facility.
Meritech automated handwashing stations for food safety eliminate cross-contamination risk from hands and footwear with fully automated, validated, and standardized employee hygiene technology that is:
We have conducted extensive efficacy studies in FDA-certified laboratories to prove that CleanTech® handwashing stations consistently remove more than 99.9% of harmful pathogens with each wash cycle. These studies were conducted on CleanTech® equipment using Meritech Hygiene Solutions. These independent laboratories specialized in topical antimicrobials and the science of hands and used the ASTM hand hygiene testing that is mandated by the FDA in the Guidelines for Healthcare Hand Hygiene TFM to test our CleanTech® systems.
The ASTM hand hygiene testing is only standard in the United States for validating hand hygiene effectiveness, and this standard employs the “Glove Juice Test Methodology” which is administered in a controlled environment that minimized the variables that affect skin hygiene testing.
Across these studies it was validated that Meritech’s CleanTech® automated handwashing stations for food production remove more than 99.9% of pathogens from hands during each 12-second cycle.
Handwashing is the most powerful defense against the transmission of pathogens, but humans are prone to error, leaving room for contamination in your food manufacturing or food packaging facility. CleanTech® automated handwashing stations for food safety provide a hand wash that exceeds FSMA, FDA and USDA requirements in 12 seconds, every time. By automating the handwashing process, you remove the variability of human behavior, in turn reducing your risk of a recall or food outbreak and increasing employee compliance with handwashing procedures for food safety at your facility.
While we are certainly proud of our innovative automated handwashing stations, Meritech is more than a food hygiene equipment manufacturer—we are a strategic partner in hygiene excellence. Our goal is to make handwashing easy, effective, and sustainable for the food production industry, all while providing you with real-time and simplified insights for quality assurance and quality control from our CleanTech® systems to help you proactively address hand hygiene compliance issues for food safety.
Meritech's proprietary hygiene solution formulations are specifically designed to work with our automated handwashing stations to ensure the removal of 99.9% of harmful pathogens to food safety during each hand washing cycle. Not only are these unique hygiene solutions designed for optimal pathogen reduction for food safety and employee skin health, they are also alcohol-free, fragrance-free, triclosan-free, dye-free, biodegradable and kosher.
When employee hands are placed in the CleanTech® hand washing station, jets deploy water and our proprietary solution evenly across all areas of the hands, achieving a balance of removal of dangerous pathogens without excessive damage to the skin, in two ways - gentle friction using a mild anti-microbial and balanced formulation of surfactants, and the addition of skin healthy emollients in our solutions to promote skin health and a normal skin ecology.
Meritech CleanTech® handwashing stations for food manufacturing environments not only consistently and effectively remove 99.9% of pathogens from each user’s hands, these automated handwashing stations also:
