Dyson digital motor V4

The Dyson digital motor V4 was seven years in the making - it's one of the world's smallest fully-integrated 1400W motors. It's the only hand dryer motor powerful enough to draw in 28 liters of air per second through a HEPA filter, and then dry hands in 14 seconds.

This long-life, energy-efficient motor is digitally switched at 6,100 times per second, making the high compression fan spin 92,000 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 at the sink

"In restrooms 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."

James Dyson

Inventor

Wash and dry hands
No water on the floor

Moving to a separate hand drying area with wet hands means that water can be dripped on the floor. This can create problems in the restroom. 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.

No water on the floor
14 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 dryers can take up to 43 seconds, so people can give up. But damp hands can 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 14 seconds.

The most hygienic hand dryer

Most other hand dryers are unhygienic. They don't filter bacteria from the restroom air. They suck in dirty air then blow it back onto hands. The Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer uses a HEPA filter removing 99.97% of bacteria at 0.3 microns from the air used to dry hands. So hands are dried using cleaner air, not dirty air.

Lowest operating costs

Most other hand drying methods are expensive to run. Paper towels need restocking and disposal. Most other hand dryers are slow, and many use a heating element, so they're energy-hungry.

The Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer costs up to 69% less to run per year than other hand dryers, and up to 97% less than paper towels. And of course there are no separate taps to buy.

Saves space

Paper towel dispensers and hand dryers take up valuable wall and floor space in public restrooms. With the Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer there is no need for additional hand drying areas. Room is available for extra toilet cubicles to reduce congestion. Or the restroom can be made smaller.

Saves space
Touch-free operation

Both water and air are sensor operated so there are no taps to turn, or buttons to touch. Intelligent, infrared sensors emit light to pinpoint hand positions. Computer circuitry coordinates the information and initiates the appropriate response of water or air without long delays.

Touch-free operation
Saves water

Controlled water flow rate and sensor operation can help save water.

Smooth, stainless steel outer, wipes down directly over the sink - no separate hand dryers to clean.
