The Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer washes and dries hands with no need to leave the sink. Infrared sensors pinpoint hand positions and release water from the tap stem. Once hands are wet and drying is requested, integrated circuitry computes the information and activates the latest Dyson digital motor, creating two high velocity sheets of air on the tap's branches.
Using Airblade technology, the Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer sends sheets unheated filtered air at 420mph towards hands, literally scraping them dry. Hands are dry in 14 seconds, and the Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer will cost about $48 a year to run. The Dyson Airblade hand dryer passes washroom air through a HEPA filter which removes 99.97% of bacteria at 0.3 microns from the air used to dry hands.
The latest Dyson digital motor: The Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer is powered by the latest Dyson digital motor – a power-dense brushless DC motor, utilising a bonded magnet encased in a carbon fiber sleeve. It is one of the world's smallest and fully integrated 1400W motors. Using digital pulse technology, it accelerates from 0-92,000rpm in less than 0.7 seconds.
