Which hand dryers save energy and dry fast? Results from Excel Dryer LCA study by Quantis

In this highly competitive space where commercial hand dryer buying decisions became more complicated and confusing regarding hygiene, financial cost, technology, functionality and environmental impact topics, Excel Dryer choose Quantis to conduct a Life Cycle Assessment study to get a concrete framework.

The study determined that when compared to traditional electric hand dryers and paper towels (virgin and 100 percent recycled content), Excel Dryer’s XLERATOR hand dryer reduces the Climate Changing Score (carbon footprint) of hand drying by 50 percent to 75 percent. Hand dryers can also become much more efficient when not using heat. The no-heat dryer system from Excel Dryer needs only 3 times less energy compared to XLERATOR models. Save energy!

Financially important fact for investors: such devices are also profitable with 1/10th of a cent using per hand dried compared to 2 cents with paper towels. Traditional paper towels also include some hidden cost such as space for paper towel stock, repeated restocking time (staffing), trash can liners and waste removal.
