NSF International, a not-for-profit, non-governmental organization, is the world leader in standards development, product certification, education and risk-management for public health and safety. The ELF and the IC join in NSF approval with the currently approved CleanTech 400. The CleanTech Automated Handwashing systems are most commonly used in restaurant, hospitality, and healthcare environments.
“Our No. 1 priority is safety and efficiency and this validates our commitment to our customers and our products,” said Jim Glenn, CEO of Meritech. “We continue to take whatever measures we need to provide products that insure the safety of the industries and the public they serve.”
The CleanTech touchless system performs a fully-automated 10- to 12-second wash, sanitize and rinse cycle. Using Meritech’s proprietary chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG) sanitizing solution, the single cycle is designed to remove more than 99.9 percent of pathogens and continues to kill germs for up to six hours. The FDA-certified, CHG-based hand soap contains mild skin conditioners to continuously improve skin health while removing dangerous germs. The system further boosts compliance by ensuring a pleasant, uniform handwash using high-pressure water jets that perform a consistent wash-and-sanitize cycle every time the machines are used.
