  • Dyson is about new technology

    “�Most�people�only�consider�how�something�is� designed�if�it�doesn’t�work.�The�best�products� evolve�as�part�of�a�design�process,�in�which�� the�technology�on�the�inside�informs�the�way�� that�they�look�on�the�outside.�Design�is�about�� how�something�works,�not�how�it�looks.�� It’s�what’s�inside�that�counts.�The�best�design� comes�from�someone�questioning�everything.”

    James�Dyson Inventor

  • The idea for the Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer came about from a Dyson engineer experimenting with pressurized air. He noticed how it scraped water from his hands. Why didn’t all hand dryers work this well?

    During its development, Dyson engineers repeatedly washed and dried 70 pairs of rubber hands, refining the technology to find the fastest dry time of 12 seconds. To simulate the harshest restroom environments they also showered prototypes in soup (to replicate vomit) and exerted the weight equivalent of an elephant to ensure robustness.

    “�You�put�your�hands�under�other�dryers,� rub�them�a�bit,�then�give�up�and�wipe�� your�hands�on�your�pants.�It’s�something�� that’s�always�annoyed�me.�Our�new�� machine�changes�that.”�� James�Dyson Inventor

    How it works

    1

    Dirty washroom air is sucked in by the Dyson digital motor.

    2

    It passes through a HEPA filter, removing over 99.9% of the bacteria.

    3

    The clean air passes over the electronics, cooling them.

    4

    The air then reaches the motor, which channels it up and through the machine.

    5

    Air passes into the air ducts which are insulated to reduce noise.

    6

    It’s then forced through two apertures – creating sheets of air traveling at 400mph.

    7

    The two sheets of air literally scrape water from hands.

    No carbon brushes means no carbon particles

    Iron core rotor with no windings

    Anti-vibration system

    0.3mm apertures

    Dyson digital motor Using digital pulse technology, it spins 81,000 times a minute. It’s the only hand dryer motor powerful enough to draw in 66 cubic feet of air per minute through a HEPA filter, and then dry hands in 12 seconds.

    No other hand dryer has this technology

    Filtered air

    Antimicrobial ABS external housing

    Restroom air

    Filter with antimicrobial coatings

    HEPA filter Dirty washroom air is forced through the filter, removing over 99.9% of the bacteria.

    Airblade™ technology The air is then forced through two continuous apertures the width of a human eyelash. The result, two sheets of 400mph air that scrape water from hands in just 12 seconds.

    So no other hand dryer works like it

    The Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer costs you less to run Faster dry time and no energy-hungry heating element, means running the Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer costs up to 97% less than paper towels.

    Saves you money

  • Only the Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer meets every part of NSF Protocol P335

    Air filtration Air used to dry hands must be HEPA filtered.

    Drying time Hands must be dried in under 15 seconds. NSF have defined dry as 0.1g of moisture.

    Touch-free operation The hand dryer must start and stop without user contact.

    If a hand dryer doesn’t have this logo, it’s not certified hygienic.

    “ We asked independent public health specialist NSF to define the criteria for a hygienic hand dryer. It’s something no one else had ever done before. The result is NSF Protocol P335 – and the Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer is the only hand dryer that meets every part of it. So it’s the only one certified hygienic.”

    Karen Hall Microbiologist, Dyson

    The most hygienic hand dryer

  • ��|��Benefits

    A recent hand hygiene study by the Bradford University Infection Group has been peer-reviewed and published in the Journal of Applied Microbiology.* The report found that washing hands alone is not enough. Microbial counts on skin actually decrease when hands are dried properly. Drying is now recognized as a vital part of hand hygiene routines.

    Out of all machines tested, the Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer was found to be the most hygienic – significantly reducing bacteria transfer compared to warm air dryers. And unlike paper towels, Airblade™ technology doesn’t leave trash cans overflowing with soiled paper towels, a potential hygiene hazard.

  • Approved for the food industry HACCP International has certified the Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer (AB02) suitable for use in the food industry. It’s the only hand dryer to achieve this accreditation.

    Traditionally hand dryers have not been used in food preparation environments. They leave staff with damp hands because they’re too slow, they blow dirty washroom air onto clean hands and their surfaces can harbor bacteria. The Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer has a 12 second dry-time, HEPA filter and anti-microbial coating.

    The Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point is an internationally recommended system of food safety management.

    “ The technology addresses a number of unacceptable risks posed by hand dryers in the past. It’s easy to clean and is a touch-free system. It also has a fast dry cycle. With the inclusion of a HEPA filter, these features combine to reduce considerably the risk of microbiological contamination and there by meet HACCP International’s food safety criteria.“
