EAST LONGMEADOW, Mass. - Wednesday, May 21st 2014 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE) Excel Dryer, Inc., manufacturer of the original, patented, high-speed, energy-efficient XLERATOR® hand dryer, introduces the new XLERATOReco® hand dryer. The XLERATOReco® uses new “no heat” technology to dry hands in 15 seconds* using only 500 watts, making it the most energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly hand dryer on the planet.
“At Excel Dryer, we put a lot of energy into saving it,” said Vice President of Marketing William Gagnon. “XLERATOReco® continues Excel Dryer’s commitment to providing the most cost effective and energy-efficient hand dryers with the same proven performance, reliability and durability expected from Excel Dryer products.”
XLERATOReco® sets another new industry standard in green innovation and sustainability. Drawing four and a half amps or less, multiple XLERATOReco® units can be installed on one circuit, which significantly reduces installation time and costs. XLERATOReco® represents over a 95 percent cost savings versus paper towels and eliminates their labor, maintenance and waste, while creating a more hygienic restroom environment. Additionally, XLERATOReco® significantly reduces a facility’s carbon footprint, helping facilities qualify for several LEED® v4 Credits and Green Globes to achieve corporate or government sustainability goals.
“XLERATOReco® is the most energy-efficient hand dryer and is well-suited for countries where reducing energy usage is critical, particularly in warmer climates where the heat is less beneficial” said Vice President of International Denis Gagnon, Jr. “The XLERATOReco® ‘no heat’ technology significantly reduces energy consumption required by hand dryers with heated air and has the smallest carbon footprint of any other hand dryer.”
XLERATOReco® has the option to be ordered with a 1.1 Noise Reduction Nozzle or the new HEPA Filtration System that removes 99.97 percent of bacteria and particles at 0.3 microns from the air stream and is the only one with a washable metal mesh pre-filter for reliable performance and extended filter life.
XLERATOReco® is also available with the industry’s most complete line of optional accessories including an adjustable speed and sound control for sound-sensitive areas, an ADA-compliant Recess Kit, the XChanger® Combination Kit – an ADA-compliant paper towel dispenser retrofit kit, MICROBAN® anti-microbial Wall Guards, and custom digital image covers adopted by several companies and organizations including the USGBC Center For Green Schools Green Apple Program, the New England Patriots, Dunkin Donuts, Coca-Cola and many more.
