UV Light Hand Dryers

Some of our customers at ProDryers have asked for UV light hand dryers or have at least searched our website for UV light hand dryers.  So there is not necessarily bad news and very good news.  First of all, UV light has not been introduced to hand dryers as of date (10/15/2015), at least not in the United States.  However, we have something much better to offer if your main goal with UV light is to kill germs.  The American Dryer ExtremeAir CPC uses cold plasma (still warm, heated air) to dry hands while killing nearly all germs.  Cold plasma has been used for many years in hospitals and other facilities to effectively sanitize and kill germs.  The hand dryer is American made and offers the most innovative technology with drying hands hygienically today.  In fact, even if a person did not wash hands, and only used the ExtremeAir CPC hand dryer, his or her hands would be sanitized and pretty much germ-free.  We stock the CPC (Cold Plasma Clean) at ProDryers.  We offer the absolute best price.  And we ship fast and free.  In fact, we ship same day when ordered by 3PM Eastern time, at no charge to our customers.

Hand Dryers: Going Green & Saving Resources like Gasoline & Oil.

Hand dryers can and will reduce the usage of gasoline and oil to mention just a few precious resources. As we continue to move towards greener solutions as a country, businesses around the United States (and world) should do their best to implement greener technologies such as hand dryers. The main goal of a hand dryer is to reduce the usage of paper towel. So the amount of gasoline and oil saved in the United States alone is significant when the transportation model of the paper towel industry is considered. Virgin paper towel can be recycled only once, and recycled paper towel can never be recycled. Even so, resources are continuously destroyed to produce a constant inventory of paper towel.

We know it takes about 17 full grown trees, 464 gallons of oil, 42 gallons of gasoline, 3 yards of landfill space, and 7,000 gallons of water to produce just one ton of virgin paper towels. Now consider the average person uses up several pieces of paper towel. It’s such a waste of so many resources that businesses are finally starting to realize that going green not only saves pointless business expenses, but also helps preserve the environment and our precious resources. Paper towel has to be replenished in a never ending, infinite loop. There’s literally no end to the need to produce more paper towel as resources are destroyed. Imagine the transportation operation required to keep a continuous flow of paper towels moving about the country. But not only from production to distribution to public restrooms, but from public restrooms to landfill space.  Transporting paper towel costs resources such as fuel and oil to operate.

Today’s technological advances with hand dryers is reason enough to eliminate the waste of resources that the paper towel business model burdens. Out of all of the products available today, three hand dryers provide the ultimate savings in energy while offering the most reliable, high quality hand drying experience.

First, the industry leader, the Excel Dryer Xlerator. This hand dryer is USA made and offers an amazing 10-15 second dry time while using 80% less energy than most other hand dryers. Going green today is as easy as installing a USA made Xlerator. Always get the best price on the Xlerator at ProDryers. We carry all models in stock, including the XL-BW, XL-W, XL-C, XL-SB, XL-GR, XL-SP Black, and XL-SP Red.

Second, consider the innovative Dyson Airblade hand dryers. Currently, the Dyson AirBlade is offered in a variety of models. The Dyson AB14 hands-in style, the AB12 Airblade V, and the Dyson Airblade TAP. All Dyson Airblade hand dryers use the same motor and offer the fastest dry times in the industry. The Dyson Airblade does not use a heating element to save even more energy, HEPA filtration to eliminate 99.97% of all bacteria in the air before the air is blown onto the hands, and offers a motor capable of moving air at 420 MPH. It’s no easy task to compete with a machine of this quality and innovation. ProDryers is an authorized dealer of the Dyson Airblade offering unbeatable prices and fast free shipping.

Last, consider the American Dryer ExtremeAir; specifically, the ExtremeAir CPC. The all new ExtremeAir CPC uses cold plasma technology to kill 99.6% of all germs on and around hands, literally sanitizing hands. It’s the only hand dryer that uses technology that can sanitize while it dries. 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.

In summary, businesses are understanding the benefits of hand dryers today vs. paper towel. Maintaining our environment is important for generations to come. Eliminating paper towel will cut down on massive waste with precious resources such as gasoline and oil, but also trees, water, landfill space and so much more. Hand dryers are the future while paper towel is fading fast. ProDryers is the top trusted name in hand dryers offering the best of brands, expert advice, the best customer service in the industry, the absolute best prices, and fast free shipping.

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.

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.

Hand Dryers Spread Germs, FALSE!

If you believe hand dryers spread germs, you could not be further from the truth.  ProDryers is here to educate readers on hand dryers and the spreading of germs.  Hand dryers have come a long way with technology.  Nearly all studies favoring paper towel over hand dryers have been funded by the paper industry.  And, in nearly all studies, old hand dryers of 20+ years were used.  There are plenty of hand dryers today that are more hygienic than paper towel. 

For the best example, look at the new ExtremeAir CPC hand dryer.  The ExtremeAir CPC kills 99.6% of all germs on and around hands.  In fact, even if the soap dispensers are out of soap in the restroom, this hand dryer will still kill 99.6% of germs on hands.  It creates a bubble of sanitized warm air.  Technically it’s using cold plasma.  But don’t be confused by the name, the air is still heated by a heating element.

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.

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.

More on Cold Plasma, and specifically how American Dryer uses it in the ExtremeAir CPC:

How does CPC Technology Work?  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. It does not create harmful levels of ozone. The cold plasma generator inside the EXTREMEAIR® CPC uses steady-­‐state positive and negative discharge points to split water molecules in the air into oppositely charged hydrogen (H+) and oxygen (O2 –) ions. These ions in turn break down gases to harmless compounds prevalent in the atmosphere. For example, ammonia that causes typical body odor breaks down to oxygen, nitrogen and water vapor. Air is made up of millions of molecules, including harmful gases, fibers, mold, bacteria, and viruses. CPC technology breaks down those harmful molecules into simple, safe, naturally occurring molecules.

The bipolar ionization generator creates cold plasma discharge from the outlet nozzle of the hand dryer that consists of positive ions (H+) and negative ions (O2 –) from water vapor in the air. These ions surround harmful substances such as airborne mold, virus, bacteria, volatile organic compounds and allergens. The ions are transformed into hydroxyl (OH•) radicals on the cell membrane surfaces to rob the harmful substance of a hydrogen atom (H), severing the protein walls of the cell membrane inactivating them. The OH• radicals instantly bond with the removed hydrogen (H), forming water vapor (H2O), and return to the air.

Dance Clubs & Night Clubs Can Benefit from Hand Dryers

Let’s look at some specific businesses and why they should consider moving away from paper towels and into hand dryers.  First of all, if you are one of those readers that thinks paper towel is more hygienic than hand dryers and hand dryers blow bacteria around, you could not be further from the truth and you have been misled by the paper industry.  Visit our educational site: hand dryers vs. paper towels and spend some time looking specifically and the ExtremeAir CPC, the cold plasma germ killing hand dryer.  Download case studies provided by Excel Dryer and learn why the Xlerator hand dryer is superior to paper towel.  Understand the optional HEPA filter capabilities of the Xlerator which eliminates germs and bacteria from air.  Read up on the Dyson Airblade which comes factory installed with HEPA filtration that eliminates 99.97% of all germs before the air is blown onto the hands.  It is simply impossible for paper towel to be more hygienic, specifically due to new studies that have proven bacteria lives and breeds well on damp, and even unused paper towel (both virgin and recycled).  The debate has simply been ended and the public is starting to understand that hand dryers are the future and paper towels are a speed bump of the past.

Our first example of a business that should not be hesitant to switch to hand dryers is dance clubs, night clubs, strip bars, and the like.  Let’s face it, these businesses have heavy traffic in the restrooms and often have to employ restroom attendants to hand out paper towel and maintain the appearance of the restroom.  And the dance clubs, night clubs and strip bars that do not keep an employee monitoring the restroom at all times are likely experiencing loads of paper towels tossed onto the floors and overflowing waste receptacles.  There’s likely been clogged toilets stuffed with paper towels.  One of the biggest complaints we hear at ProDryers from club owners is the stuffed toilets scenario.  Customers tend to get angry when paper towel dispensers are broken, out of paper, or run out of batteries.  There could even be some vandalism in these settings.  This is an easy win for the business owner(s) to ditch the paper and move to a quality high speed hand dryer. 

High-end clubs will consider the Dyson Airblade.  There’s three models: the AB14 hands-in style, the AB12 Dyson Airblade V, and the Dyson Airblade TAP (AB09, AB10, AB11 models), which is a new concept of washing and drying right at the sink with an automatic faucet and hand dryer all in one product.  Dyson products are put through rigorous testing, simulating major abuse so durability is always a quality with Dyson.  Dyson has engineered some of the most innovative products in the world.  When it comes to hand dryers, the Airblade brand is proving to be a major contender.  Customers and business owners love them.  The important point is, most customers absolutely love to use them.  For a club setting, we’d actually suggest the Airblade Tap as a top solution.  Foot traffic in club restrooms are typically heavy and the Dyson Airblade Tap allows for users to wash and dry at the sink without traveling around the restroom with wet hands.  Depending on the design of the restroom, this may or may not be the only suggested solution.  The Dyson Airblade V is another great choice and we’d suggest using the wall guard with it to keep the walls dry.

All club owners from high-end to lower can consider our top two sellers.  Both the USA Made Excel Dryer Xlerator hand dryer and the USA Made American Dryer Extreme Air are solid choices for dance clubs, night clubs, strip bars and the like.  Consider the Excel Dryer Xlerator.  This hand dryer is the Chuck Norris of hand dryers.  It will vandalize the vandals.  The Xlerator is made in Massachusetts by Excel Dryer, all right here in the USA, which proves American quality is among the best in the world!  It even qualifies for the Buy American Act.  This hand dryer is commonly found in stadiums, zoos, rest areas, restaurants, dance clubs, night clubs, strip bars and so much more.  At ProDryers, we sell around 500 per month, and we can’t recall a single complaint when it comes to performance or durability.  We can’t praise it enough.  Quality just speaks for itself, end of story.   Buy the Excel Dryer XL-BW Xlerator hand dryer at ProDryers now.  It’s always on sale and will cut your paper towel costs by 95%, plus… eliminate maintenance issues like paper towel stuffed toilets and vandalism.

The American Dryer ExtremeAir is one of our top sellers at ProDryers.  We promote it heavy because the quality again, speaks for itself.  The ExtremeAir comes in 3 versions.  The GXT, EXT, and CPC.  Let’s first look at the all new CPC series.  It uses cold plasma to kill 99.6% of all germs on and around hands.  It literally sanitizes hands naturally.  This is possibly over-kill for a dance club, night club, or strip club, so the suggested solution may be the GXT ExtremeAir which lacks the germ killing technology.  The only deciding factor is budget.  But keep in mind, by eliminating paper towel costs altogether, the hand dryers become an investment not an expense (over time).  Club owners often spend a high dollar amount on paper towel.  The American Dryer GXT is a perfect solution for ending that cost.  All American Dryer ExtremeAir hand dryers come equipped with an adjustable motor to allow the control of sound and speed.  However in clubs, the noise is usually irrelevant so leaving it on the blazing fast 10-15 second dry time is the best option.  The ExtremeAir is 43% smaller than most hand dryers so it saves on space yet still delivers a powerful air blast which dries hands in 15 seconds or less.  The EXT ExtremeAir lacks the heating element and uses only an amazing 540 watts.  It can cost as little as 18 cents to dry 1,000 pairs of hands.  Call ProDryers at 888-50-DRYER and order the ExtremeAir hand dryer now!

American Dryer Hand Dryers – The Perfect Solution for Any Restroom

American Dryer has created a line of current hand dryers that meet today’s standards of technology and innovation for every budget.  This article serves as a guide to purchasing the best American Dryer hand dryer for your specific facility.  In this article, we’ll look at all American Dryer models from the germ killing revolutionary ExtremeAir CPC, the GXT and EXT ExtremeAir hand dryers, the Advantage series, and the GX series.

Image

First, let’s consider the leading technology with hand dryers today.  The ExtremeAir CPC uses cold plasma.  The air is still warm, but the cold plasma kills 99.6% of all germs on and around hands.  Let’s take a quick step back.  Many of us have heard of plasma.  Maybe you’ve run across it on the Discovery channel or heard of it from a science magazine.  Along with solid, liquid and gas, plasma is one of the four fundamental states of matter.  According to PlasmaCoalition.org, plasmas are estimated to constitute more than 99 percent of the visible universe.  There are two types of plasmas.  Hot plasmas, and cold plasmas.  Hot plasmas are exist at thousands of degrees Celsius and are often used to sterilize surgery equipment.  Cold plasmas are closer to room temperatures.  Per ScienceMag.org, medical scientists have high hopes for plasmas. Produced in electrical discharges, these gases of free electrons and ions have already been shown to destroy pathogens, help heal wounds, and selectively kill cancer cells. No one is exactly sure how all of this works, but it seems that plasmas generate so-called reactive oxygen species in the air. These highly reactive molecules, which are present in our own immune system, oxidize cell membranes and damage DNA.  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.  So if you are looking for the absolute latest in hand drying technology, the ExtremeAir CPC offers cutting edge technology that kills germs on and around hands while drying them fast and efficiently.

For one of the top high speed energy efficient hand dryers, we offer the GXT and EXT series ExtremeAir.  These hand dryers offer up 10-15 second dry times, but also provide an adjustable motor to quiet the noise levels.  The dry time can be taken down to a quieter 25 second dry time if desired.  The GXT uses a heating element and requires a dedicated line.  The EXT uses no heating element and can allow up to 3 dryers per line.  Schools often choose the EXT version as it uses just 540 watts and only 4.5 amps on the high end.  The GXT uses 1500 watts and 12.5 amps on the high end.

So to summarize the ExtremeAir comes in 3 versions:

  1.  CPC (same as GXT but also uses cold plasma, kills germs)
  2. GXT (uses heating element, 1 per line, 12.5 amps, 1500 watts, adjustable sound and speed)
  3. EXT (no heating element, 3 per line max, 4.5 amps, 540 watts, adjustable sound and speed)

The next step down from the ExtremeAir is the all new Advantage series.  The advantage series is a mid-range hand dryer drying hands at about 25 seconds but it carries a low price point starting around 270.00.  For that price, it’s a solid buy and should get the job done.  We still suggest the ExtremeAir, but when budgets play a huge role in a purchase decision, this dryer is a good choice.

On the low end of the budget hand dryers is the very affordable GX series hand dryer.  Starting around 159.00, this dryer is suggested to our low traffic facilities, but only when budgets won’t allow the upgrade to a better performing unit.  The GX series will dry hands in 35+ seconds.  It is one of the quietest hand dryers on the market.  It’s a possible choice to very small offices where lighter restroom traffic is expected.

In summary, American Dryer is one of our best manufacturers at ProDryers and better yet, the dryers are made in the USA providing a high quality product backed by a high quality warranty.  Call us at 888-503-7937 or 888-50-DRYER so we can walk you through the features of each and provide the best recommendations for your exact needs.
