  1. Motor shall be a thermally protected, series commutated, through-flow discharge vacuum motor/blower (~½ hp / high-30,000 rpm, low-20,000 rpm) which provides air velocity of up to 16,000 LFM (linear feet per minute) at the air outlet.
  2. Heating element (550 W) is constructed of Nichrome wire and mounted inside the blower housing behind air baffle, thereby being vandal resistant. It shall be protected by an automatic resetting thermostat, which shall open whenever air flow is cut off and shall close when flow of air is resumed. It shall produce an air temperature of up to 141°F (61°C) at a 72°F (22°C) ambient room temperature at the outlet and 101°F (38°C) at the hands (4 inches [102 mm] below air outlet).
  3. Control assembly is activated by an infrared optical sensor located next to the air outlet. The dryer shall operate as long as hands are under the air outlet. Control includes a speed and sound control mechanism, variable heat control with High, Medium, Low and Off settings and a filter sensor which is activated should the filter become clogged. There is a 35-second lockout feature if hands are not removed. Sensor equipped with externally visible Red LED light that can flash error codes to assist in troubleshooting


The dryer shall be guaranteed to be free from defects for a period of five (5) years. Warranty shall include labor performed at factory as well as the repair or exchange of defective parts, at manufacturer's option


One dryer for every two washbasins is sufficient for most applications. If restroom traffic is unusually heavy, we suggest one dryer per washbasin in small installations and two dryers for every three washbasins in larger installations. When a 54" washfountain is used, we suggest four to five dryers.
