Meech International was established in 1907 and has built up a reputation for supplying innovative and high quality solutions in five main areas: static control, air technology, web cleaning, Jetstream and IonRinse.
With its headquarters in Witney, Oxfordshire and offices in USA, Belgium, Hungary and China, Meech provides global support for its customers. An international network of distributors and agents also ensures that customers have local support for all their installation and application requirements.
Static electricity control and static protection for both industrial and cleanroom areas, to address the problems of Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) and Electrostatic Attraction (ESA). The product range includes ionising anti-static bars and blowers, air curtains, electrostatic field meters and electrostatic generators
The effective understanding and control of static electricity has made Meech a market leader in its field since the 1960s. The physical phenomenon of static electricity has been recognised for a thousand years, is experienced by everyone, but understood by very few. Harnessed correctly, static can provide positive manufacturing benefits. Meech manufacture and supply a wide range of electrostatic products that provide anti static and ESD protection and measurement, static generation, electrostatic control and elimination.
Compressed air systems and industrial energy devices that not only deliver genuine savings on compressed air usage but also offer benefits to the environment. Products include Blowguns, Air curtains, Cabinet Coolers, Air Amplifiers and Vortex Tubes.
Compressed air is vital to a huge range of industrial applications, whether it’s blowing dust, drying glass bottles or blowing crisp packets off conveyor lines. In fact almost 90% of the UK manufacturing industry uses compressed air in some part of its production process.
The real cost of compressed air however is often forgotten because it’s so convenient. For example according to the British Compressed Air Society a typical manufacturing company spends about 10% of its electricity bill on compressed air.
Meech Air technology can help, by harnessing the forces of physics Meech has developed products that increase the efficiency of the compressed air delivered to the point of application. This simultaneously reduces the total energy consumption and increases the standard of operator comfort.
To take one example Meech Air Nozzles will immediately reduce compressed air consumption by an average of 70% not only reducing energy costs but also reducing compressor demand saving money on replacement equipment.
Meech Air Technology products are sold around the World through a distribution network that we are continually developing, ensuring our customers receive the level of service and response that only local resources can provide.

Web cleaning systems for continuous webs of plastic or paper, delivering increased quality and productivity. We supply contact and non contact web cleaners with integrated anti static controls to neutralise static charges and ensure a cleaner web in order to improve productivity and product quality.
Contact Web Cleaning: The Meech VacClean contact web cleaning range incorporates Meech’s proven contact web cleaning manifold combined with either a compact extraction unit or vacuum fan unit.
The VacClean manifold includes highly polished stainless steel faceplates which create turbulence to break the boundary layer, twin ionising bars to neutralise static charges on the web on entry and exit to the manifold and brushes to aid break up of the boundary layer.
Non Contact Web Cleaning: Non contact web cleaners eliminate the risk of surface marking and damage. There is no interference with web tension or web tracking. Non contact web cleaners are suitable for both single and double sided web cleaning.
The Meech JetStream air knife system is an energy efficient alternative to compressed air products. JetStream is available in two versions
Ionising Air Knife System
To remove contamination [dust/fibres/dirt] from a surface. Systems are used extensively throughout the automotive/beverage/composite materials/glass and plastics industries. Click here for more ionising JetStream information.
Non-Ionising Air Knife System
To remove water/moisture from, or, cool a product or surface. Systems are used within the automotive/beverage/food packaging/plastics and fresh produce industries.
Ionised air rinsing and air cleaning systems for sustainable waterless rinsing performance. Our ionised waterless rinsing technology enables Meech to produce air cleaning systems that offer significant energy savings and improved sustainability over traditional industrial pre fill water rinsing systems.
The IonRinse system combines powerful AC ionisation, a custom designed airflow distributor and high quality inline filtration to provide the ultimate in ionised air rinsing.
The high velocity, filtered ionised air exits the IonRinse head unit via the airflow distributor and enters the container. The control of the airflow coupled with the neutralisation of static charges releases contamination from the container inner walls, which is caught by the vacuum airflow and extracted to the inline filter unit.
The blow and vacuum airflows are provided by the central blow, vacuum and filtration unit.
Cleaning performance is maximised with the container fully inverted (opening facing down) as it travels over the IonRinse head. Meech can provide the required container handling and installation as part of the system, if required.
