Dyson has launched the Dyson Airblade 9kJ hand dryer, the fastest most energy efficient HEPA-filtered hand dryer. With a completely unique design and cutting-edge technology, the Dyson Airblade 9kJ hand dryer enables people to dry their hands quickly and hygienically, while using low energy and offering an alternative to single-use paper towels.
“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,” says chief engineer Jake Dyson.
“We continue to pioneer with the Dyson Airblade 9k, 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.”
The Dyson Airblade 9kJ hand dryer machine has been more than three years in development, with more than 700 prototypes. The result is the quietest Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer yet with fast hand drying in 10 seconds.
The motor and airflow technology allow the new Dyson Airblade 9kJ hand dryer to use up to 87 percent less energy than warm air dryers in Eco mode, while producing up to 85 percent less carbon dioxide emissions per dry than paper towels.
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 is built to last and rigorously tested to withstand reallife washroom conditions.
It employs pioneering Dyson technology including A Curved Blade™ design, which spins at up to 75 000rpm. Sheets of air flow up to 624m/h 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 second, allowing the Dyson Airblade 9kJ hand dryer to dry your hands fast.
The machine also uses ‘Time of flight’ sensors that accurately detect hands to activate air. With a fleece-lined glass fiber HEPA filter, which captures 99.95 percent of particles, including bacteria and viruses, from the washroom air, the machine uses clean air to dry hands.
The quietest Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer yet, the Dyson Airblade 9kJ hand dryer features silencers made from open-cell foam and perforated discs, reducing noise as airflow passes through the motor.
To achieve the reduction in noise, Dyson redesigned 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 $1590 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.
