Savortex launches energy efficient hand dryer into FM sector
Savortex, the young and ambitious, technology-driven British manufacturer of energy efficient hand dryers, has launched the new addition to its Vortex EcoSmart Range: The Vortex 540 Diamond White hand dryer.
The anti-bacterial gloss-finished product boasts significant improvements to the company's established low energy and sustainable power hand drying range, which Savortex says is set to change the way in which hand dryers are selected by facilities managers and specifiers, due to its patented energy recovery technique and low lifecycle operating costs.
The Vortex Diamond White dries hands in seconds and boasts digital 'brushless' bypass motor technology with a patented energy recovery system; which, put simply, means it is super energy efficient, through smart airflow movement, when compared to some of the similar power hand dryers that are available.
The Vortex motor runs at just 19,200 revolutions per minute, creating output air speed of 30 litres per second; maximising the energy efficiency of the motor without compromising performance.
"The launch is a key milestone for our Vortex 540 range," says Syed Ahmed, Managing Director, Savortex."We remain absolutely firm in our ambitious roll-out of such a sustainable, clean, energy-efficient power hand dryer and one that is available immediately.
"We have invested heavily in British manufacturing to develop a range of hand dryers that will deliver quick paybacks to our customers. Our Vortex Diamond White now uses the improved lower power consumption of 545W and the hand dryer allows for unrivalled cost and energy savings that can boost the bottom line.
"Clients such as British Airways, Marriott Hotels and Atomic Weapons Establishment are testament to the hard work our engineering team have put in to the development and launch of the Vortex range."
The Vortex 540 Diamond White hand dryer is the result of six years of scientific research and product development, using just 545W of power compared to as much as 2400W with conventional dryers. The Vortex is so energy efficient that 43 hand dries can cost as little as 1p operating cost and each unit comes with a seven year, no quibble warranty as standard.
Savortex is said to be the only award-winning British hand dryer manufacturer to have achieved a Guinness World Records title for its Vortex EcoSmart Hand Dryer; drying four pairs of hands using just 24kJ of energy. Its most recent achievement was the 'Energy Efficiency Initiative of the Year 2012? award from the Electrical Time industry awards.
