Hand Dryer FAQs
Are askon hand dryers hygienic to use?
The touchless automatic operation of hand dryers and HEPA filters prevent spread of germs and microbes. Some hand dryer models also have anti-microbial additives in plastics to prevent any growth of harmful microbes. You can access the independent test report here. Using Askon Hand Dryers is an extremely hygienic method to dry hands.
Why use askon hand dryers?
Apart from being a hygienic method to dry hands, the new generation of askon hand dryers save in access of 95% cost compared to paper towels and 75% operational costs as compared to traditional hand dryers.
At Askon, we are constantly innovating and designing new hand dryers with latest technology and features. Our hand dryers have industry leading warranties and backed with the best after sales service.
How to choose the right hand dryer model?
The three most important parameters to consider while selecting the right hand dryer model for your application are as given below:
We discuss each parameter in more detail below to enable you to make an informed decision:
The new generation hand dryers have higher air speeds with a high RPM (Revolutions per minute) motor. They dry the hands by blowing or scraping the water from hands rather than drying them with heat. This reduces the drying time and also reduces the power consumption. However, higher motor and air speed also increases the noise levels of the hand dryers. Our low noise hand dryers are in the sound range of 70-75 db and high speed hand dryers are in the range of 80-82 db measured at 1 meter from the hand dryer.
Also, we at Askon, use various engineering techniques to reduce and noise levels and eliminate the high pitch frequencies from the hand dryers which are the most irritating to human ears.
Many importers claim their hand dryers to be in the range of 50-65 db which is simply not possible. The ambient noise level itself tends to be 60-65 db. This can easily be verified by measuring ambient sound using smartphone with the help of many free apps available on iOS and Android mobile platforms.
Not much explanation needed here. However we want to highlight the less obvious reason that usually buyers overlook. It is not the upfront price but the operational cost of the hand dryer which should be considered. If there are frequent breakdowns and repairs, apart from the wasteful expenses it also inconveniences the users. This might affect the image of your establishment or business and this loss is difficult to quantify.
We provide the best warranties for hand dryers in the industry because we are confident of our product quality and minimal breakdown even after years of operation. If this wasn't true, frankly we would have been bankrupt!
Power consumption of the hand dryer may be an important parameter to consider specially if the facility has heavy usage of hand dryers. Each operation of the hand dryer adds up to the operational costs.
Many users are under the misconception that higher the power rating, lower is the hand drying time. In fact, our latest hand dryer model ASH-VJ does not use a heating coil and dries hands in under 15 seconds with power rating of 1250 W.
To calculate the cost per operation of the hand dryer, use the below formula:
OC = PR * (PPU/3600) * DT
OC = Operational cost per hand drying cycle
PR = Power rating of the hand dryer in KW (kilowatts)
PPU = Price per unit (KWh) of power (available in your electricity bill)
DT = Drying time in seconds
