How it works: Dyson Airblade hand dryers rely on the 81,000 rpm Dyson Digital Motor (DDM), which pulls air through a hospital-grade HEPA filter that removes over 99.97% of the bacteria and particulate in the air prior to blowing it on your hands. The filter is a long life filter that is covered by the 5 year warranty and should rarely need changing. With no heating element required and only 1400w of operation, it uses up to 80% less energy than most warm air hand dryers.
