Mitsubishi invented their Jet Towel hand dryer introducing a new concept in hand drying technology in the early 1990's. Since then they have been steadily improving its performance and efficiency. Recently, Mitsubishi have introduced Jet Towels with heaters and also a silver and black colouring option.
The Mitsubishi unit has nothing to refill or replace (unlike paper or cloth towel dispensers) and no waste paper to pile up or dispose of. This will give a clean, tidy and professional feel to any bathroom. The hand-drying area is made of alcohol-resistant resin, enabling cleaning using standard alcohol-based products. Also, with antimicrobial treatment on areas that come into contact with water (Hand-drying area, drain tank and drain hose) the unit itself is designed for ultimate hygiene and cleanliness.
When the hands are fully inserted, lower sensor detection starts the air flow. Withdrawing the hands automatically halts the operation. This touch-free design makes it superbly hygienic.
The Jet Towel uses silver ion technology which provides anti-microbial protection to the user. All parts that come into contact with water are made from an antimicrobial material. Silver ions contact the cell wall of general cellular bacteria, curbing protein synthesis and other actions to control bacterial growth.
With over a 90% reduction in energy, the Jet Towel Hand dryer is one of the most energy efficient on the market, drying hands in only 10-12 seconds.
There is no bigger trend facing operators today than creating environment friendly facilities. Aside from the significant cost savings, when the choice is made to install a Mitsubishi hand dryer a statement is being made that less waster, less carbon dioxide, less use of natural resources and cleanliness are all paramount to your operating mission.
The Mitsubishi Jet Towel unheated dryer is one of the lowest energy hand drying solutions available. The power it consumes is only 560W, compared to 2400W used by a conventional hand dryer.
The money spent to dry a pair of hands with a paper towel could dry up to 100 pairs with this dryer. After installation it is much cheaper than paper towel dispensers or cloth towels. In addition, the 560W motor means the Jet Towel achieves a huge reduction in energy costs. The automatic Turn on and Turn off facility avoids unnecessary over-running and it will stop after 25 seconds even if hands are not withdrawn.
Thanks to its special nozzles, the Jet Towel dryer has high volume air flow with not too high air speed. It is completely safe to use for children with small hands. Open ends on two sides enable easy hand access from the side without touching the unit or getting trapped whilst wearing watches/jewellery.
The advanced design ensures that the airflow is always fresh and dry. The air-duct is isolated from the water flow. Inserting the hands triggers a stream of fresh air from the air-ducts, drying with maximum speed and comfort.
The Mitsubishi Electric Jet Towel hand dryer has been accredited with NSF/ANSI 169 certification by NSF International (NSF) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) in recognition of its hygienic operation. This demonstrates its suitability for use in healthcare, catering and other situations where sanitation is a primary concern.
