The latest Dyson digital motor was seven years in the making – it’s one of the world’s smallest fully-integrated 1600W motors. It’s the only hand dryer motor powerful enough to draw in up to 30 litres of air a second through a HEPA filter, and then dry hands in 10 seconds.
This long-life energy efficient motor is digitally switched at 6,000 times per second, making the high compression fan spin 90,000 times a minute. There are only three moving parts, so there are no slip rings or carbon brushes to wear down.
Because of bulky motors, other hand dryers may protrude far from the wall. They may have to be recessed into the wall, which can be costly. Because the Dyson Airblade V hand dryer uses the latest Dyson digital motor, it is just 4 inches deep. This means that it can be installed without recessing and the associated costs.
10 second dry time
Testing based on the National Sanitation Foundation’s Protocol P335 (NSF P335) shows that most other hand dryers are much slower than their manufacturers claim. Many people give up when using a slow hand dryer. But damp hands can spread up to 1,000 times more bacteria than dry hands.
Testing based on NSF P335 proves that Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers are the fastest. The Dyson Airblade V hand dryer dries hands hygienically in 10 seconds.
The most hygienic hand dryer
Other hand dryers are unhygienic. They don’t filter bacteria and viruses from the washroom air. They suck in dirty air then blow it back onto hands. The Dyson Airblade V hand dryer uses two HEPA filters. 99.9% of bacteria and viruses in the washroom air are captured. So hands are dried using cleaner air, not dirty air.
Only Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers are certified hygienic by independent public health specialists, NSF international. No other hand dryers meet every part of the NSF Protocol P335. As well as having a fast dry time and HEPA filters, the Dyson Airblade V hand dryer also has touch-free operation and an antimicrobial coating.
Costs less to run
Other hand drying methods are expensive to run. Paper towels need constant re-stocking and disposal. Most other hand dryers are slow, and many use a heating element, so they’re energy hungry.
The Dyson Airblade V hand dryer costs up to 69% less to run per year than other hand dryers, and up to 97% less than paper towels.
