American Dryer Hand Dryer Review, GX, Advantage, Extreme Air Hand Dryers

American Dryer is based out of Livonia, Michigan and has been making top quality hand dryers since 1952. At ProDryers, American Dryer is one of our top 3 brands in quality, performance and durability. Today’s hand drying solutions by American Dryer aim to tackle all facilities and every application. As of date, American Dryer offers a low range GX series hand dryer, a mid-range Advantage hand dryer, and a high performance ExtremeAir.

The GX Series is one of the least expensive hand drying solutions on the market today. For the price (currently as low as $159, it’s a good product). The GX series dries hands in 35+ seconds, but it is quiet and does get the job done for facilities on a tight budget. We suggest at least considering the next step up.

The next step up is the American Dryer Advantage hand dryer. It dries hands in about 25 seconds and operates around the high 60’s dB range. At this rate, a normal conversation can occur without the need to shout and two people can still hear each other. The advantage is suggested for light traffic to medium traffic restrooms. It’s a standard hand dryer for a price point currently starting at $270.

The suggested solution is American Dryer’s premium, ExtremeAir hand dryer. The ExtremeAir is on the cutting edge of technology and innovation. In fact, the ExtremeAir is revolutionizing the hand dryer industry. There are 3 versions of the ExtremeAir. The GXT9, EXT7, and CPC9. All three versions of the ExtremeAir are the same exact size. All three have an adjustable motor to control sound and speed making it the best solution for the quietest of needs to the more aggressive high speed, blazing fast dry times of 10-15 seconds. The ExtremeAir can be adjusted anywhere from 10 second dry times down to about 25 second dry times, making it one of the most flexible hand drying solutions on the planet. All ExtremeAir (and Advantage) hand dryers utilize universal voltage of 100-240 volts by taking thousands of signals per second from the electrical. Software on the board is intelligent enough to auto-configure the voltage and even amps to deliver the most cost efficient hand drying settings while eliminating installation mistakes and providing the ultimate in cost savings. All ExtremeAir dryers are GreenSpec listed and energy efficient qualifying facilities for LEED credits. There are subtle differences from the GXT, EXT, and CPC ExtremeAir hand dryers explained below:

The GXT ExtremeAir hand dryer uses a heating element. The GXT like any hand dryer with a heating element requires a dedicated line. It costs only 42 cents per 1,000 uses to operate.

The EXT ExtremeAir hand dryer does not use a heating element and can handle up to 3 hand dryers installed per line. Schools and facilities installing hand dryers in large quantities can benefit by saving on electrical and installation costs provided by the EXT. The EXT ExtremeAir costs just 18 cents per 1,000 uses to operate.

The CPC ExtremeAir is the most impressive sign of innovation in the hand dryer industry to date. The American Dryer CPC9 uses cold plasma to crack 99.6% of all germs open like an eggshell.  Like the GXT, the CPC also uses a heating element so the air is warm. CPC kills germs on the surface of your hands and the surrounding air while drying them with warm air. Cold Plasma Clean technology was developed by American Dryer’s team of engineers to create the most hygienic method of hand drying ever. Cold plasma or bipolar ionization is nature’s way of cleaning the air and killing germs. High levels of ionization are found in the fresh air breeze off the ocean or on top of a mountain. CPC technology is natural and safe. The Cold Plasma Generator inside the eXtremeAir® uses steady-state positive and negative discharge points to split water molecules in the air into oppositely charged hydrogen and oxygen ions. These ions in turn break down gases to harmless compounds commonly found in the atmosphere. Air is made up of millions of molecules, including harmful gases, fibers, mold, bacteria, and viruses. CPC technology breaks down harmful pathogens into simple, safe, naturally occurring molecules. CPC technology is proven to kill harmful pathogens including E.Coli, C. Diff, Staph, MRSA, and TB. Testing has been done independently by EMSL Labs, an Elite CDC certified lab. The eXtremeAir with CPC technology has also been independently tested for safety by Underwriters Laboratory (UL), passing both the UL867 and the California Air Resources Board (CARB) standards. Proven cold plasma technology has successfully been used to purify the air in commercial buildings since the 1930s. The prestigious Cleveland Clinic, Baylor College of Medicine and Boston Children’s Hospital use this technology to keep the air clean. More recently, cold plasma has been used in the medical industry to treat surgical incisions and kill bacteria in the food processing industry. Today, the eXtremeAir cPc hand dryer has advanced this technology to kill the germs on your hands while you dry them.
