Hand Dryers are getting more and more energy efficient.
Low energy hand dryers are those which draw less than 1600W
Ultra low energy hand dryer are those that draw 500W or less.
Not many handd dryers fall into this ultra low energy category although a lot of hand dryers have the capability of reducing the power rating by turning off the heating element or reducing the motor speed.
Vortex was formed in the UK by Syed Ahmed to produce a Guinness World Record setting hand dryer for the most pairs of hands dried using 30kJ of energy. Although this model is no longer available, it has been superseded by the latest technological developments making it even more energy efficient and now has the only hand dryer with Intel technology incorporated to give live and recorded statistical feedback to facilities managers on its energy consumption and usage, providing real-time feedback on it energy saving credentials. It also has an ad screen which can provide a source of income to premises owners.
