ProTech XV high volume employee hygiene systems help keep the workforce clean
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 accommodate 15 employees per minute, it will sanitise hands or gloved hands with an E-3 'no-rinse' hand sanitising solution and will 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," reveals 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 designed for easy maintenance and cleanability, the ergonomic walk-through design of the ProTech XV employs 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 requires minimal maintenance. The CIP features such as tilt up pan for cleaning under the machine, simple controls for operation and the 304-stainless steel design for in-place washdown make cleaning and sanitising the machine fast and efficient.
