Hand Dryer Lifespan
When choosing commercial hand dryers for your workplace bathrooms, a key consideration is the lifetime cost of the appliance. A major factor contributing to the lifespan of a hand dryer is the quality of manufacturing. Choosing a cheaper hand dryer can mean a small upfront saving, but poor quality components, bad manufacturing practices and spare part availability can negatively affect the lifespan.
Design Simplicity Improves Reliability
Conventional evaporative hand dryers use slow moving air and a heater to dry the user’s hands. This means that multiple systems are in place, which creates many potential points of failure – the motor, fan assembly, heating element and switches.
By comparison, a Mitsubishi Electric Wave hand dryer uses jet towel technology in which fast moving air is blown through a narrow nozzle to displace water from the skin. This simplification in design coupled with automatic operation means that there are fewer things that can go wrong.
