New Hand Dryer From Dyson 9Kj Air Blade

Hand dryers are one of the most common appliances you’ll see in public washrooms. After all, who doesn’t want to dry their hands out in just a jiffy? Just stick your hand and let the machine do its miraculous work on you.

If you’re looking for an excellent hand dryer, you’ll surely like the new Dyson Airblade 9kJ Hand Dryer. We’ll talk about this machine in a while and why using it is the best method to dry your hand out.

Sure, there are other ways you can dry your hands after washing them. Some people like using hand towels. But, this method of drying your hands out might be a bit unsanitary.

Downsides To Hand Towels

Paper hand towels are a common staple of every washroom. They’re easy to use and dispense. Just one drag from the dispenser and you’re good to go. However, some minor issues can come up.

One of these issues would be wasted hand towels. Some washrooms that use manually dispensed hand towels may suffer from those that use too many hand towels than needed.

Some hand towels can also be an avenue for an exchange of diseases. You see, germs, bacteria, and other unwanted particles can stay on the towel dispenser.

“Really? Even if the people who used it previously used hand soap?”

Definitely! Just the water alone on their hands can be the cause of the growth of bacteria.

Research shows that heterotrophic bacteria, coliform bacteria, and E. coli can be found in used hand towels. We don’t want these harmful bacteria in our hands now, do we? Here are a few illnesses people might get from these bacteria:

  • Cholangitis.
  • Traveler’s diarrhea.
  • Urinary Tract Infection (UTI).

That’s why hand dryers can be a better substitute for hand towels. With these, you won’t have to touch your hands on dirty surfaces.

And if you do find one, chances are, it’s the Dyson Airblade AB14. It’s widely known in the industry and is used by several establishments worldwide.

One of the main reasons why this Dyson Airblade got popular is because of its efficiency. It can help you dry your hands in just 10 seconds.

You read that right - a 10-second drying time.

On top of that, it also has other benefits such as:

  • HEPA filter.
  • Low sound output.
  • Robust blade style.
  • Guaranteed 5-year operation.
  • Low wattage consumption per dry.

But, like most things, it also has its downsides. A few of these are as follows:

  • Difficult to install.
  • HEPA filter needs frequent replacement.
  • Expensive to repair when the warranty expires.
  • Maintenance and repair issues caused by the absence of drainage.

However, this model has been discontinued. Luckily, Dyson replaced the AB14 with a better model - the Dyson Airblade 9kJ Hand Dryer.

Much like most brands, it’s important to update a product catalog from time to time. This way, older products that need improvement can be replaced by better ones.

Dyson has done an awesome job in this aspect. They listen to their customers and provide what they truly need. 

In this case, we need a hand dryer that’s more efficient and has a better filtration system. Of course, operating cost and ease of maintenance are also important factors.

Here are some of the main features you’ll get from this hand dryer:

  • Cost-efficiency.
  • 5-year guaranteed warranty.

Let’s talk more about these.

Cost-efficiency

Inside the dyson AirBlade 9kj Hand Dryer

With the rising cost of living worldwide, cost-efficient appliances are what most people look for. I mean, why won’t you choose something that costs less to use, right?

Especially with something that you only use to dry your hands, you wouldn’t want it to jack up your electric bill. Luckily, with the Dyson Airblade 9kJ Hand Dryer, you’ll only be using 9.1 kilojoules of energy per dry.

The implication of this is that it’ll cost you £19 annually if you use its Eco mode. Paper towels are even more expensive to use compared to this hand dryer. 

Dyson claims that the Airblade 9kJ is 99% less costly to use than single-use paper towels. You can check their computations on their website.

Hygiene-focused

Hygienic Filters

You may have heard from other people that hand dryers are not sanitary. That they can blow bacteria and disease-bringing objects to your hands.

This may be true to hand dryers that don’t have proper filters installed. Fortunately, your safety and health are important to Dyson. The Airblade 9kJ Hand Dryer is fitted with a HEPA filter (shown below) which helps remove 99.5% of particles that can be harmful.

These filters are designed to catch even the smallest particles at 0.1 microns. If you’re looking for a hand dryer for your washroom, your family will be safe with the Airblade 9kJ. Especially those families with little kids - they are more susceptible to diseases.

Other features

Another awesome feature the Dyson Airblade 9kJ has is its sound. Some hand dryer brands that don’t focus on the comfort of their users usually ignore the noise it produces.

It might not be a big deal, however, little things like these can disrupt other people.

Dyson however designed the Airblade 9kJ to be as quiet as possible. Using the MAX mode, it only produces 79 dBA. No more waking the whole room up when you use it at 3 a.m.

This hand dryer also has a curved blade design.

This means it can remove water from your hands in a shorter time. It’s designed to follow the contours of your hands. And the best part is it flows at a speed of 388 mph.

The Dyson Airblade 9kJ also produces minimal CO2 emissions when used. Perfect for those who want to be environmentally conscious while drying their hands.
