Walkthrough sanitising unit for humans
Meritech's newest fully automated hand and footwear sanitising system, the ProTech XV, is a bi-directional walk-through system that can handle large numbers of employees entering and exiting production areas in large groups.
Developed to process 15 employees per minute, it will sanitise hands and gloved hands with an E-3 'no-rinse' hand sanitising solution and simultaneously sanitise footwear with a high concentration sanitising chemical as employees walk through.
"Some of our customers asked for an employee hygiene solution that can handle large shift changes," says Michele Colbert, president of Meritech. "The new ProTech XV system will sanitise high volumes of employees' hands and footwear in a short amount of time. \
"Most of our customers will use the ProTech as a 'fail-safe' measure to provide a final sanitise 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."
Hygienically engineered for easy maintenance and cleanability, the ergonomic 'walk through' design of the ProTech XV utilises two hand sanitising troughs, each with sets of spray nozzles that apply a no-rinse quat sanitiser directly onto hands or gloved hands while employees are walking through the footwear sanitising pan.
The ProTech XV's footwear hygiene system is programmed to automatically charge and replenish the pan with a hard surface sanitising solution during use to maintain the sanitiser concentration level in the 800 to 1000 PPM kill zone, requiring no manual intervention to fill or refill the pan.
The ProTech XV is 'EZ Clean' and requires minimal maintenance. The CIP features like 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 sanitising the machine fast and efficient.
Like all Meritech equipment, the ProTech XV is made in the US and carries the Meritech guarantee, which includes a full five-year warranty on parts and workmanship.
Meritech offers a complete line of NSF certified, CleanTech fully-automated handwashing and boot scrubbing systems that help companies with their employee hygiene and infection prevention programs in a wide range of markets, including cleanroom/pharma manufacturing, food production, pet food production, food packaging, restaurants, retail, theme parks and cruise lines.
