June 27, 2014 – Dyson engineers say they have re-engineered the original Dyson Airblade hand dryer for lower manufacturing emissions and improved sound quality.

Powered by the Dyson digital motor V4, the Airblade AB14 db hand dryer uses two sheets of 675kph air to “scrape water off hands like a windshield wiper”, adding that hands are dry in just 12 seconds. Promising to dry 18 pairs of hands for the price of a single paper towel, the dryer passes washroom air through a HEPA filter which removes 99.97% of bacteria at 0.3 microns from the air used to dry hands, says Dyson.
