Dyson Launches The Airblade 9kj, The Fastest Most Energy Efficient Hepa-filtered Hand Dryer

Dyson launches the Dyson Airblade 9kJ hand dryer, the fastest most energy efficient HEPA-filtered hand dryer among Dyson Airblades1. With a completely unique design Curved Blade™and cutting-edge technology, the Dyson Airblade9kJ hand dryer enables people to dry their hands as fast as 10 seconds1and hygienically, while using low energy and offering an alternative to single-use paper towels.

The Dyson Airblade 9kJ hand dryermachine has been over three years in development, with more than 700 prototypes made. The result is the quietest Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer yet2, with fast hand drying in 10 seconds2. Our motor and airflow technology allows the new Dyson Airblade 9kJ hand dryer use up to 53% less energy than last generation Airblade products4.

Comparing with last Airblade generation, there are two power modes – Max mode or Eco mode – to suit your washroom. Busy washrooms such as train stations or shopping mall with high footfall need to quickly dry people’s hands. Max mode uses 900W, drying hands efficiently in 10 seconds2, using 10.7 kJ energy per dry5.

Eco mode may be preferable for washrooms with comparatively lower footfall, for example offices or restaurants. This mode dries hands in 12 seconds7, using only 9.1kJ energy per dry8

On the other hand, the Dyson Airblade 9kJ hand dryer has a stainless steel body, which is built to last. The machine rigorously tested to withstand real-life washroom conditions.

As always with Dyson, success is in the detail and the intelligent combination of hardware and software. The Dyson Airblade 9kJ hand dryer’s robust design and stainless steel body is built to last and rigorously tested to withstand real-life washroom conditions. It alsoemploys pioneering Dyson technology including:

Dyson Digital Motor Technology

Dyson digital motor V4, which spins at up to 75 000rpm5. Our powerful Dyson digital motor V4 shifts 23 litres of air per second5, allowing the Dyson Airblade 9kJ hand dryer to dry your hands fast, in 10 seconds2

Curved Blade™ design

Powered by the Dyson digital motor V4, sheets of air flow up to 624kmph5through two 0.45mm curved apertures that follow the contours of your hands, removing water in less time. 

Touch-free operation 

Dyson Airblade™ 9kJuses ‘Time of flight’ sensors accurately detect hands in 0.25 seconds to activate air without wasting energy.

A hygienic HEPA filtration 

With a fleece-lined glass fiber HEPA filter, which captures 99.95%6 of particles, including bacteria and viruses, from the washroom air, the machine uses clean air to dry hands.

Acoustic engineering

Our quietest Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer yet3, straight line configuration allows for simple airflow paths which reduces air turbulence, meaning less noise and less energy consumption.
