The hands‐in hand dryer consists of a compact body of 3 mm ABS that is mounted against the wall on a carbon steel frame. The frame is fixed to the wall using 5 holes with the dimensions for an 8 mm drill bit. Additionally a security screw is fixed behind the water tank. The dryer is operated by an electronic infra‐red sensor and it automatically stops after the hands have been withdrawn from the sensor field or after 18 seconds (vandal‐proof disconnection).
The air is blown out through a linear matrix of holes for ideal distribution of the air and drying by dragging the water off the hands. Air temperature is controlled automatically. The dryer works with a brushless motor, 220‐240V, 35.000 r.p.m. Air speed is 396 km/h which allows drying hands in approximately 10s. The dryer has a total power rating of 1400W with a maximum consumption of 8A.
A switch located in one side of the hand dryer offers the possibility of turning off the heating element in order to reduce consumption. HEPA H 13 filter is included in order to remove 99,95% of particles with a minimum size of 0,3μm. Sound level at a distance of 2m is of 76 dB. Total measures of the hand dryer are 680x300x250 mm, with a total weight of 8,5 kg. The hand dryer model is manufactured by GENWEC WASHROOM S.L.
