The new Dyson Airblade 9kJ hand dryer is the fastest, most energy efficient model with a HEPA filter. It allows you to dry your hands quickly and hygienically, while consuming the minimum amount of electricity.
“We believe that hand drying should be quick, hygienic and economical in terms of energy consumption. And we solved most of these problems when we revolutionized the industry with the launch of the first dryer
™ in 2006,
– comments Jake Dyson, Dyson Chief Engineer. –
9kJ continues the tradition of innovation. In this model, we’ve redesigned everything from acoustics to design to achieve high performance while ensuring maximum comfort and hygiene.”.
The Dyson Airblade 9kJ hand dryer has been in development for over three years, during which time more than 700 prototypes have been built. The result is the quietest Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer to date, drying hands in just 10 seconds.
Thanks to its motor and airflow technology, the new Dyson Airblade 9kJ dryer can use 87% less electricity in Eco mode than dryers with a heating element, producing 85% less carbon emissions per drying than paper towels.
“As engineers, we strive to improve things and make them more efficient and cost-effective. It’s in our DNA and it’s the willingness to make progress anywhere, even in the restroom,
– noted James Dyson. –
Paper towels were introduced back in 1907 and electric hand dryers in 1948, but both have their drawbacks. The path to a better solution was very interesting. In 2006, with the invention of the
for the first time, water is sheared off hands with powerful streams of unheated air, reducing energy consumption.”.
With its robust stainless steel construction and housing, the hand dryer has a long service life.
Rigorous testing during the development phase proved that the Dyson Airblade 9kJ was ready for the real world.
- CurvedBlade design
The digitally controlled Dyson V4 motor generates up to 75,000 rpm and blows air at 624 kph through two 0.45mm wide curved holes.
Their shape follows the contour of your hands, allowing you to remove water in less time.
The powerful Dyson V4 motor draws in 23 liters of air per second, so the Dyson Airblade 9kJ dries hands in just 10 seconds. The Dyson Airblade 9kJ1 spends 9.1kJ of energy per drying, so the cost of operating the dryer is 1,015 Dollars per year in “Eco” mode.
- Non-contact control
The dryer uses touch sensors that respond precisely to the proximity of hands and trigger an airflow.
- Hygienic HEPA filtration
The dryer is equipped with a fiberglass HEPA filter that captures 99.95% of suspended particles, including bacteria and viruses. That’s why the Dyson Airblade 9kJ uses purified air to dry hands.
- Acoustic performance
The Dyson Airblade 9kJ is by far the quietest hand dryer amongst the Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers. It uses soundproofing made of foam plastic and perforated discs to reduce noise from airflow through the motor.
To reduce the loudness of the dryer, Dyson redesigned the internal air ducts and made them less curved.
The digitally controlled Dyson V4 motor casing regulates the airflow through it, reducing audible vibrations. The motor is mounted on a silicone damper, which further reduces noise levels, and the specially designed soundproofing of the foam plastic absorbs vibrations from incoming and outgoing air streams.
- The Dyson Airblade 9kJ hand dryer has two modes of operation:
- Maximum is for high footfall washrooms, such as airport and stadium buildings where people are in a hurry and hands need to be dried quickly. In this mode, the Dyson Airblade 9kJ1 runs at 900 watts of power and dries hands in 10 seconds. With a carbon footprint of 3.0 g per drying.
- Eco mode is better suited for less frequented washrooms, such as offices and restaurants. In this mode, the Dyson Airblade 9kJ removes moisture from hands in 12 seconds. The power is 650 watts and the carbon footprint is 2.5 g per drying.
The Dyson Airblade 9kJ hand dryer is designed for use in all commercial and public washrooms, including offices, shopping centers, restaurants, city spaces, amusement parks, schools, hospitals and hotels.
