Electronic hand dryers offer considerable benefits in extremely busy washrooms with respect to ease of both cleaning and maintenance. The touch-free DRYX500N Hands-in hand dryer by Franke with PTC heating element ensures constant, safe heating of the dryer air to 37°C and ensures both high energy efficiency and long service life.
With up to 1650 Watts of power, the hand dryer dries hands in a matter of seconds (7-10 sec.). The user need only move his or her freshly-washed hands vertically through the air flow a couple of times. Despite the power of its output, the noise level (65 – 69 db) is no greater than that of a busy canteen.
Further product benefits of the Franke hand dryer include its adjustable "low" and "high" air speeds, the optional changeover between hot and cold and the integrated automatic shutdown function, which cuts in after 25 seconds of continuous operation. The emitted air is cleaned by a standard HEPA filter (high-efficiency particulate arrestance), which traps 99.97% of particles 0.3 µm in size and larger. In addition, a UVA lamp in the interior of the dryer cleans the air as it flows outward.
From a hygienic point of view, the silver-coloured surface of the dryer housing and water tank made of ABS plastic also have antibacterial properties.
