High Speed Hand Dryer
- Surface-mounted hand dryer uses 12.5 amps at 110/120V
- One-piece white reinforced thermoset polymer cover for protection against rust, wear, and damage
- The 1.1 nozzle reduces noise level by up to 9 decibels (dB)
- High-velocity air stream and contoured nozzle dry hands in 10-15 seconds, three times faster than conventional hand dryers
- Meets GreenSpec standards and earns Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) credits for saving energy and reducing waste
The XLERATOR XL-BW 12.5 amp, 110/120V automatic hand dryer has a 1.1 noise reduction nozzle, a one-piece white reinforced thermoset polymer cover, and uses a high-velocity air stream and contoured nozzle to dry hands in an average of 10-15 seconds. An automatic infrared optical start/stop sensor runs the dryer for 35 seconds or until hands are removed from under the sensor. This surface-mounted, hard-wired hand dryer meets several GreenSpec standards, is certified by Greener Product LLC, endorsed by the Green Restaurant Association, and earns Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) credits with the Green Building Certification Institute. The 1.1 noise reduction nozzle cuts the sound level by up to 9 decibels (dB) and keeps it under 90 dB. The dryer has a five-year warranty covering factory performed labor and repair or exchange of defective parts (at the manufacturer’s option). The hand dryer measures 12-11/16 x 11-3/4 x 6-11/16 inches (H x W x D). (H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.)
Hand dryers use high-velocity air streams to remove water from hands. They are an alternative to cloth or paper towels, and are often used in public facilities.
Excel Dryer, Inc. manufactures hand and hair dryers. The company is headquartered in East Longmeadow, MA.
A Fast Hand Dryer
Fast! Dries Hands Completely in 10-15 Seconds
Excel's research team has developed the XLERATOR with patented technology that delivers three-times-faster hand drying performance. Conventional hand dryers take from 30 to 45 seconds to get a user's hands totally dry, and very few of us are willing to wait that long. With the automatic sensor-activated XLERATOR, not only do your hands get dry in 10 to 15 seconds, but consumer test participants report that their hands also felt warm, soft and really dry.
Uses 80% Less Energy
Not only does the XLERATOR dry hands in one third of the time required by conventional hand dryers, its hand-drying system is designed to run on 15 amp service (making it great for older buildings). The combination of these two factors results in 80% less energy cost per use vs. conventional hand dryers.
95% Cost Savings vs. Paper Towels
Converting to the XLERATOR hand dryer will result in more than a 95% savings vs. paper towel costs. In addition to paper towels, the following costs are also eliminated: ordering, storing, replenishing, collecting, and disposing of bacteria-laden paper towel waste. This results in a Payback of Less Than One Year.
