Triple triumph: New Dyson products more than just hot air

At a press conference in Kensington, Dyson unveiled three new Aitrblade hand dryers powered by a new motor

The hand dryers were developed by a team of 125 Dyson engineers and are - the company says - the fastest, most hygienic and sustainable way to dry hands properly.

The three products concerned are the Dyson Airblade Tap handdryer which washes and dry hands in one place; the Airblade V hand dryer which has concentrated technology and is 60% smaller; and the re-engineered Airblade hand dryer, in which 1.1kg of materials have been removed and carbon emissions reduced during manufacture.

The most intriguing is probably the first mentioned - the Tap hand dryer. According to Dyson it washes and dries hands with no need to leave the sink. ''Infrared sensors pinpoint hand positions and release water from the tap stem,'' the company explains.

''Once hands are wet and drying is requested, integrated circuitry computes the information and activates the latest Dyson digital motor, creating two high velocity sheets of air on the tap’s branches. Unheated clean airis released toscrape wateroff hands leaving them dry in 12 seconds.''

Meanwhile, the V hand dryer, which is 60% smaller than the original, involves two sheets of high velocity air angled at 115 degrees that span the width of each hand, and scrape off water. Dyson says it dries hands in 10 seconds.

The Airblade hand dryer has been made lighter, and it is HACCP approved for hygiene, so it is safe for use in the food and beverage industry. Again, hands are dry in 10 seconds.
