This is a hand dryer, made by Excel, that uses 80% less electrical energy than similar dryers. It uses a high velocity fan to dry hands faster (10-12 seconds) by blowing the water droplets off the hands.
Hand dryers are more efficient than paper towels in public restrooms. Paper towels have a higher annual cost, use energy to transport, create paper waste, require maintenance to keep them filled, are often sources of
mess in restrooms.
