The three models are:
- Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer: wash and dry hands in one place with no need to leave the sink.
- Dyson Airblade V hand dryer: concentrated technology - 60 per cent smaller but no compromise on performance.
- A re-engineered Dyson Airblade hand dryer: with 2.5 kg of materials removed and a smaller carbon footprint.
Conventional hand-dryers use one column of bacteria-filled bathroom air to evaporate water from hands, after much hand rubbing. Most people simply give up.
Dyson Airblade hand dryers dry hands quickly and effectively using Airblade technology. Sheets of high-velocity unheated air travel through tiny apertures, quickly scraping water from hands like a windscreen wiper, leaving them fully dry.
The latest Dyson digital motor is a power-dense, brushless DC motor, utilising a bonded magnet encased in a carbon fibre sleeve. It is one of the world’s smallest and fully integrated 1600 W motors. Using digital pulse technology, it accelerates from 0-90,000 rpm in less than 0.7 seconds.
The Dyson Airblade hand dryer passes washroom air through a HEPA filter to remove 99.9 per cent of bacteria before it’s blown onto hands.
Inventor James Dyson says, “Using complex computer modelling, Dyson engineers have developed a high-performance digital motor. The Dyson digital motor self-adjusts 6000 times a second to maintain optimum efficiency to create a high velocity sheet of air that dries hands quickly and hygienically.”
Dyson Airblade Tap Hand Dryer
The Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer washes and dries hands with no need to leave the sink. Infrared sensors pinpoint hand positions and release water from the tap stem.
Once hands are wet and drying is requested, integrated circuitry computes the information and activates the latest Dyson digital motor, creating two high-velocity sheets of air on the tap’s branches. Unheated clean air is released to scrape water off hands, letting them dry quickly.
Dyson Airblade V Hand Dryer
Dyson engineers have concentrated Airblade technology without compromising drying performance. The Dyson Airblade V hand dryer is 60 per cent smaller than the original, yet dries hands fast. Two sheets of high-velocity air angled at 115 degrees span the width of each hand and scrape off water.
Dyson Airblade Mk2 Hand Dryer
Dyson engineers have re-engineered the Dyson Airblade hand dryer for improved acoustics and lower carbon emissions. Engineers removed 2.5 kg of materials from the machine. It is HACCP approved for hygiene, so it is safe for use in the food and beverage industry.
