Excel's research team has developed the Xlerator with patented technology that delivers three-times-faster hand drying performance. Conventional hand dryers take from 30 to 45 seconds to get a user's hands totally dry, and very few of us are willing to wait that long. With the automatic sensor-activated Xlerator, not only do your hands get dry in 10 to 15 seconds, but consumer test participants report that their hands also felt warm, soft, and really dry.
Not only does the Xlerator dry hands in one third of the time required by conventional hand dryers, this hand drying system is designed to run on 15 amp service (making it great for older buildings). The combination of these two factors results in 80% less energy cost per use vs. conventional hand dryers. This is the first hand dryer to be GreenSpec Listed because it meets a number of GreenSpec standards; conserves energy, has low maintenance requirements and reduces waste. The Xlerator hand dryer helps your facility qualify for several different LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Credits, including EA Credit 1 - Optimize Energy Performance, now a mandatory credit for any LEED-certified facility.
Converting to the Xlerator hand dryer will result in more than a 95% savings vs. paper towel costs. In addition to paper towels, the following costs are also eliminated: ordering, storing, replenishing, collecting, and disposing of bacteria-laden paper towel waste. This results in a payback of less than one year!
The motor is thermally protected, series commutated, through-flow discharge vacuum motor/blower which provides air velocity of up to 19,000 lfm (linear feet per minute) at the air outlet and 16,000 lfm at the hands (4 inches below air outlet). Heating element is constructed of Nichrome wire and mounted inside the blower housing, thereby being vandal proof. 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. The 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. There is a 35-second lockout feature if hands are not removed.
The bathroom hand dryer's cover is constructed of one-piece, heavy-duty, rib-reinforced, die-cast zinc alloy - a lightweight, unbreakable, and rustproof material. All exposed surfaces of the cover are chrome-finished with chip-proof, electrostatically applied white epoxy paint. The hand dryer will be fastened to a wall plate by two chrome-plated tamper-proof bolts. The wall plate shall be equipped with (3) 7/8" diameter holes, one of which shall be suitable for use with surface conduit, for ease of wiring. One dryer for every two washbasins is sufficient for most applications.
