GOLDEN, CO – Meritech has designed and developed the XBW Soles Only Scrubber, a high throughput, fully automated boot/shoe sanitizing system for use in food production and other commercial environments where fast, but always effective, footwear hygiene is critical.

The company’s newest innovation offers entryway footwear scrubbing and sanitizing on work boots, street shoes, and other footwear at a rate of up to 20 employees per minute — preventing contaminants from entering production zones while increasing operational efficiency and improving SOPs for footwear sanitizing across the board. This system is ideal for any facility looking to eliminate footwear as a vector for the spread of listeria, salmonella, and other dangerous pathogens.

Features include: Hygienic Design for cleanability

  • Bi-directional photoeye operation
  • Adjustable brush height
  • Tool-less brush removal
  • Soap-empty indicator light and alarm
  • Non-slip surfaces
  • 5 Year Parts & Labor Warranty (US only)
  • Throughput of up to 20 employees per minute

The XBW Soles Only Scrubber is the newest addition to Meritech’s line of boot and shoe hygiene solutions. All of Meritech’s footwear hygiene products are fully automated, easy and safe to use, easy to clean and maintain — and are backed by an industry best 5-year Parts & Labor Warranty, plus 2 complimentary visits annually for Calibration and Certification. Like all Meritech products, the equipment is designed and manufactured in Golden, Colorado. Meritech ensures that your equipment is always effective by delivering best-in-class, proprietary chemicals and providing no charge, onsite scheduled calibration by our team of Service Engineers.
