The XLERATOR dries hands completely three times faster (in 10-15 seconds)*, uses 80 percent less energy than conventional hand dryers, and reduces the hand drying carbon footprint up to 70 percent versus even 100 percent recycled paper towels.

The XLERATOReco hand dryer uses “no heat” technology to dry hands fast using only 500 watts, making it the most energy-efficient and environmentally friendly hand dryer on the planet. Excel Dryer offers the industry’s most options and complete line of accessories to create the best hand drying solution for any restroom environment, including an adjustable speed and sound control for sound-sensitive areas, an ADA-compliant recess kit, an ADA-compliant paper towel dispenser retrofit kit, MICROBAN® anti-microbial Wall Guards, and custom digital image covers adopted by several celebrated brands and organizations, including Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots.

* Dry time based on third party testing performed by SGS International on standard XLERATOR® hand dryer with 0.8 nozzle to 0.2g or less of residual moisture.


The New England Patriots put a lot of energy into conserving it with XLERATOR® hand dryers
