Dyson digital motor
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 12 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.
Wash and dry hands
"In washrooms using conventional taps, you'll need to move to a separate hand drying area, dripping water on the floors as you go. It's why we've developed a tap with our hand drying technology in it."
No water on the floor
Moving to a separate hand drying area with wet hands means that water is often dripped on the floor. This can create problems in the washroom. With the Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer, water isn't dripped on the floor because you don't need to leave the sink with wet hands.
12 second dry time
The conventional way to wash and dry hands is too slow. Hand drying facilities are often not located near a sink, and hand dryers can take up to 43 seconds, so people can give up. But damp hands spread up to 1,000 times more bacteria than dry hands.
There's no need to leave the sink to use the Dyson Airblade tap hand dryer and it dries hands in 12 seconds.
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 Tap hand dryer uses HEPA filters. 99.9% of bacteria and viruses in the washroom air are captured. So hands are dried using cleaner air, not dirty air.
