Automated Hygiene Equipment for Food Safety

Hygiene made easy for food processing, food packaging and food manufacturing



Our Vision for Hygiene Excellence for Food Safety

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 hygiene equipment is clinically proven to remove more than 99.9% of harmful pathogens in seconds. We also offer educational guides and resources such as handwashing posters and safety day kits to help you reinforce good food safety hygiene behaviors with your team.

“After installing Meritech equipment, we have become SQF certified and that has opened new doors for our products. Our older 2000S model hand washer unit is still passing all USDA and SQF inspections, and I cannot express how much we rely on the continued operation and service of this unit. The reliability and performance of our unit has surpassed our expectations.”
"The automated wash system we have has been wonderful. The system has added a higher level of cleanliness of personnel and more productivity to the production group by moving a large group of people at one time after breaks and lunch. Our customers and auditors have been impressed and we have nothing but good things to say about the automated washing system. We have now added a second shift at the first of the year and the system has continued to perform very well." 
“The service you guys provide is excellent! It really helps out our company and all of our hand washing needs. Whenever we need a technician to come out and service our equipment you guys do it in a timely manner. We appreciate all the good service and equipment that you guys provide”

“We have had absolutely no mechanical problems with the hand wash systems since they were installed. Our customers and employees like the systems. I like that each machine has a compliance counter so that management can verify that they are being used...I am very pleased to be a Meritech customer and would recommend your hand wash systems to others in the food industry.”

Increase Compliance

Poor hygiene significantly impacts the health and safety of your employees, food products, and ultimately—your customers. No matter how stringent your hand washing procedures and SSOPs are, humans are prone to variability and error, resulting in poor hand hygiene and the spread of harmful pathogens.

  • Clinically proven to consistently remove 99.9% of harmful pathogens
  • Helps increase hygiene compliance by up to 400%
  • Integrates seamlessly into your facility’s location and hygiene program
  • Exceeds FSMA, FDA and USDA regulatory safety and sanitation requirements
  • Makes hygiene compliance monitoring and documentation effortless
  • Feels fantastic and softens skin with each wash for long-term improved skin health

Clinically Validated

400InstallExample2_2019Website_1200x800-1We 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. 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 hygiene systems remove more than 99.9% of pathogens from hands during each 12-second cycle.

Consistently Effective

Handwashing is the most powerful defense against the transmission of pathogens, but humans are prone to error, leaving room for contamination in your facility. CleanTech® provides a hand wash that exceeds FSMA, FDA and USDA requirements in 12 seconds, every time. By automating the process, you remove the variability of human behavior, in turn reducing your risk and increasing employee compliance.

While we are certainly proud of our innovative technology, Meritech is more than an equipment manufacturer—we are a strategic partner in hygiene excellence. Our goal is to make effective handwashing easy, effective, and sustainable for the environment, all while providing you with real-time and simplified insights from our CleanTech® systems to help you proactively address hygiene compliance issues.

Uniquely Formulated Solutions

Solutions---3-cascade---transparent - 1200x800Meritech's proprietary solution formulations are specifically designed to work with our automated hygiene system to ensure the removal of 99.9% of pathogens during each hand washing cycle. Not only are these unique solutions designed for optimal pathogen reduction and skin health, they are also alcohol-free, fragrance-free, triclosan-free, dye-free, biodegradable and kosher.

When employee hands are placed in the hand washing cylinders, 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.
