Ensure Guest Health

Bacteria and infection are most commonly spread by human hands, and poor hand hygiene significantly impacts the health and safety of our food, public spaces, and each other. And no matter how accessible you make soap and handwashing sinks, or how stringent your hand washing procedures are, humans are prone to variability and error, which ultimately results in the spread of harmful pathogens and diseases. In fact, researchers in London estimate that if everyone routinely washed their hands, a million deaths a year could be prevented.

Meritech's automated hygiene technology effectively mitigates the risk of infection spread in public areas like cruise ships, airports, zoos, amusement parks, shopping centers, movie theaters, transit systems, and other facilities where crowds of people may congregate. Many people have noticed our cruise hand washing machines on ships while on vacation. Meritech makes effective hand hygiene fun, easy, and eco-friendly with fully automated, validated, and standardized hygiene technology:

  • Clinically proven to consistently remove 99.9% of harmful pathogens
  • Helps increase handwashing by up to 400%
  • Feels fantastic and softens skin with each wash for long-term improved skin health
  • Integrates seamlessly into your facility’s location 
  • Exceeds CDC and VSP regulatory safety and sanitation requirements

Clinically Validated


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. 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 FDA, USDA, and CDC 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 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.

Sustainable & Eco-Friendly

Meritech CleanTech® systems not only consistently and effectively remove 99.9% of pathogens from each user’s hands, these automated handwashing stations also:

  • Only 6/10ths of a gallon per handwash cycle
  • Zero waste - 100% of water the system uses cleans the hands vs. 65% of water from sinks that never touches the hands.
  • Maximize energy efficiency - Our systems use extremely low electrical power consumption
