2015 PRODUCT GUIDE

HAND AND HAIR DRYERS FOR EVERY APPLICATION

AMERICAN DRYER INTRODUCES THE MOST HYGIENIC METHOD OF HAND DRYING EVER!

What is CPC and how does it work?

Cold Plasma Clean is our patented technology that does what no other hand dryer can do: It kills germs*. Can you imagine a restroom experience where germs are being eliminated and not spread? Just think of the impact on schools, airports, restaurants or anywhere germs are a concern. We thought it was time that a hand dryer did more than simply dry your hands; it’s why we invented one that also kills germs.

The eXtremeAir cPc uses a generator that converts the air into cold plasma which is well known for its germ-killing ability. Plasma is also known as the fourth state of matter. It is ionized air that contains positively and negatively charged molecules that attract and kill germs. The by-product is pure water vapor.

Cold plasma kills:
E.coli, Salmonella, Influenza A, Staph, C.diff & MRSA*

The only maintenance-free hygiene solution.

Available exclusively on our eXtremeAir CPC high speed hand dryers - Cold Plasma Clean technology is the only solid-state, maintenancefree hygiene solution. There are no expensive filters, chemicals or labor. CPC technology goes way beyond HEPA filtration, which simply traps mold and germs inside the dryer.

* For a detailed explanation of CPC technology, download the white paper at americandryer.com/white-papers/. Our EPA Establishment Number is 091022-MI-001. This product is not intended to diagnose, cure, mitigate, treat or prevent any disease.

EXTREMEAIR® CPC THE ONLY HAND DRYER WITH PATENTED COLD PLASMA CLEAN TECHNOLOGY

Proven cold plasma technology has been used to improve air quality in commercial buildings since the 1930s. Schools, hospitals and other facilities use this technology to keep the air clean. More recently, cold plasma has been used in the medical industry to treat surgical incisions, and in the food processing industry to break down harmful microbes.

CPC technology is proven to kill germs by leading microbiology labs

CPC technology is independently proven to be safe and effective. Two of the nation’s leading microbiology labs were selected for testing. EMSL Labs is an elite CDC-certified lab with AIHA accreditation in industrial hygiene and environmental microbiology. Antimicrobial Test Labs, ATL, is a GLP-compliant laboratory audited by the EPA and FDA. The eXtremeAir with CPC technology has also been tested for safety by Underwriters Laboratory (UL), passing both the UL867 and the California Air Resources Board (CARB) standards.

*EMSL testing on MRSA was performed on the Cold Plasma Generator only.

ACCESSORIES

ACCESSORIES ENHANCE ALL eXtremeAir ®, Advantage™ AND global® SERIES HAND DRYERS

Industry-First ADA Wall Guard

No need to cut a hole in the wall to achieve ADA compliance.

Dramatically reducing moisture on walls and floors, our new patented Wall Guard is ADA compliant, achieving the four-inch-or-less unit protrusion guidelines without the need to recess the accompanying dryer into the wall. This eliminates the need to cut holes and reframe restroom walls, which is especially valuable for cinderblock, masonry or other difficult-to-modify surfaces.

Wall Guard is designed to sit below the dryer and is easily installed using just the four screws provided. It achieves ADA compliance and provides safety for users living with disabilities because its curved lower edge assures that the “leading edge” of the dryerwith-wall-guard unit is 26” or less from the finished floor, a distance that meets ADA standards to protect people using wheelchairs or walking aids.

Wall Guard features elegant, seamless one-piece stainless steel construction.

Part # ADA-WG*
*Not for use with hair dryers.

ADA Recess Kit

The all-new Recess Kit reduces the protrusion of the dryer to less than four inches from the wall to meet ADA requirements when the dryer is installed in a hallway or narrow passage. The Recess Kit features seamless one-piece stainless steel construction and is easy to install.

Part # ADA-RK*
*Not for use with hair dryers.

Adapter Plate

The Adapter Plate is a 16” W x 14” H stainless steel plate that covers mounting holes when replacing old hand dryers and paper towel dispensers.

GREEN GUIDE

Energy Reduction

Our family of eXtremeAir hand dryers help to minimize your carbon footprint by reducing energy. The eXtremeAir eXt series is the first high-speed hand dryer to reduce power consumption to an industry-leading 500 - 300 watts of electricity - that’s up to 3X less energy than other “green” hand dryers.

Energy is measured in KiloJoules (KJ). Lower numbers represent less energy use and less cost.

Green Facts

Paper towels cannot be recycled, consume precious resources and use excessive landfill space. Making one ton of virgin paper towels can use:

  • 7,000 gallons of water
  • 17 full grown trees
  • 464 gallons of oil
  • 42 gallons of gasoline
  • 3 yards of landfill waste

A major bottling company eliminated about 96 yards of landfill waste per year by replacing five paper towel dispensers with eXtremeAir hand dryers. The operating cost of the hand dryers is less than $16 per year. To calculate your cost savings while going green, please see our online cost calculator.

Cost Savings

Going green doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. In fact, the eXtremeAir saved customers up to 98% versus paper towel costs while eliminating landfill waste.

Green Certifications

The eXtremeAir hand dryer has been GreenSpec® Listed. This is an unbiased list of the most environmentally friendly products published by the editors of Environmental Building News. The eXtremeAir met tough GreenSpec standards because it uses 80-90% less energy than conventional hand dryers and reduces maintenance and waste.

LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. The Greener Products Certified Seal confirms the product complies with the LEED, LEED for Homes and NAHB standards. The eXtremeAir helps facilities qualify for LEED Credits in several categories:

  • EA Credit: 1 Optimizing Energy Performance (Mandatory)
  • MR Credit 6: Solid Waste Management – Waste Stream Audit
  • IEQ Credit 3.1: Green Cleaning – High Performance Cleaning Program
  • IO Credit 1: Innovation in Operations
  • IO Credit 3: Documenting Sustainable Building Cost Impacts

The eXtremeAir is California Air Resources Board compliant.

Dryer Placement

Dryers should be placed at least 2 feet apart and at least 12” from washbasin. Do not install dryer over washbasin. Automatic dryers should be at least 18” above any projection which may interfere with the operation of the automatic sensor. In congested areas, dryers should be located to create a flow from the washbasin to the dryer and to the exit. Recommended mounting heights are shown in the table above.

Dryer Installation

Dryers must be installed by a licensed electrician. A singlephase dedicated 15 amp or 20 amp electrical line is required. (The eXt series does not require a dedicated line.) Dryers must be properly grounded. One side of dryer should be mounted to a stud. All surface mount dryers are provided with conduit entrances for both in-wall and surface wiring. For indoor use only.

Quantity Estimate, Hand Dryer

  • Average traffic washroom: 1 dryer per 2 washbasins
  • Heavy traffic washroom: 1 dryer per washbasin
  • 54” wash fountain: 4 dryers per sink
