Dyson India has launched the Dyson Airblade 9kJ hand dryer, it’s a fast and energy-efficient HEPA-filtered hand dryer. The Dyson Airblade 9kJ comes with completely unique design and cutting-edge technology, it enables people to dry their hands quickly and hygienically, while using low energy and offering an alternative to single-use paper towels.
The Dyson Airblade 9kJ hand dryer machine has been over three years in development, with more than 700 prototypes made. The result is the quietest Dyson Airblade hand dryer yet, with fast hand drying in 10 seconds. The motor and airflow technology allows the new Dyson Airblade 9kJ hand dryer to produce up to 85% less carbon dioxide emissions per dry than paper towels in Eco mode.
It has two power modes, Max Mode and Eco Mode. Max Mode is designed for busy washroom and Eco Mode preferable for washrooms with comparatively lower footfall, for example, offices or restaurants. Max Mode uses 900W, drying hands efficiently in 10 seconds. Carbon emissions in max mode are 3.0g per dry, whereas, Eco Mode uses 650W and the carbon emission is 2.5g CO2 per dry5. This mode dries hands in 12 seconds.
“At Dyson, we believe hand drying should be fast, hygienic and responsible in its energy use. We solved many of these problems when we disrupted the industry with the launch of the first Dyson Airblade in 2006,” explains Jake Dyson, Chief Engineer.
“We continue to pioneer with the Dyson Airblade 9kJ – our latest hand drying technology. From the acoustics to its design, everything has been rethought to deliver the best performance without any compromise on user experience or hygiene,” he adds.
As always with Dyson, success is in the detail and the intelligent combination of hardware and software. The Dyson Airblade 9kJ hand dryer’s robust design and stainless steel body are built to last and rigorously tested to withstand real-life washroom conditions. It also employs pioneering Dyson technology including:
A Curved Blade Design:
Powered by the Dyson digital motor V4, which spins at up to 75 000rpm2, sheets of airflow up to 624 km/h2 through two 0.45mm curved apertures that follow the contours of your hands, removing water in less time. Our powerful Dyson digital motor V4 shifts 23 litres of air per second2, allowing the Dyson Airblade 9kJ hand dryer to dry your hands fast, in 10 seconds1.
The machine uses ‘Time of flight’ sensors that accurately detect hands to activate air.
A Hygienic HEPA Filtration:
With a fleece-lined glass fibre HEPA filter, which captures up to 99.95%3 of particles the size of bacteria (0.3 microns) from the washroom air, the machine uses clean air to dry hands.
Our quietest Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer yet4, the Dyson Airblade 9kJ hand dryer features silencers made from open-cell foam and perforated discs, reducing noise as the airflow passes through the motor.
To achieve the reduction in noise, Dyson re-designed the airflow paths through the machine, making them more direct and therefore reducing sound output.
The motor housing of the Dyson digital motor V4 regulates airflow paths through the motor, reducing noisy turbulence. The motor is mounted on silicon rubber to further reduce noise, and the specially designed open-cell foam silencers absorb vibrations from air entering and exiting the motor.
The Dyson Airblade 9kJ hand dryer costs US$1349 and is designed to suit any commercial or public washroom, from offices, shopping malls and restaurants, to public spaces, amusement parks, schools, hospitals and hotels.
