New Certified XLERATOR® HEPA Filtration System Delivers 99.97% Pure Air
- XLERATOR with HEPA Filtration System is the only high-speed hand drying system that certifies each filter, ensuring it meets stringent HEPA performance standards of 99.97% filtration; features a washable pre-filter for reliable performance and longer life; easily retrofits into existing units –
East Longmeadow, MA – October 11, 2012 – Excel Dryer, Inc. announced today that its best-selling XLERATOR® high-speed, energy-efficient hand dryer is now available with a certified HEPA Filtration System. XLERATOR offers the only certified HEPA filtration system proven to remove 99.97% of potentially present bacteria and particulates from the air in the room, and the only one with a washable pre-filter for reliable performance and extended filter life. XLERATOR with HEPA settles the debate about hand dryer hygiene by delivering clean, filtered, purified air as only XLERATOR can – fast and efficiently. The HEPA filtration system is now available as an optional XLERATOR feature, or can easily be retrofitted into existing units.
“Excel Dryer is the only hand dryer manufacturer that tests and certifies each HEPA filter to ensure it meets stringent HEPA filtration performance standards,” said William Gagnon, VP of marketing, Excel Dryer, Inc. “The certification provides independent assurance that each filter efficiently captures airborne particles 0.3 micron and larger – the size range of potential bacteria particulates that may exist in the air.”
The HEPA Filtration System easily retrofits into existing units or can be purchased with a new high-speed, energy-efficient XLERATOR hand dryer. Installation takes between 15-30 minutes and does not require an electrician.
“The new HEPA Filtration System is suited for any market, but responds particularly well to the hygiene requirements of many health care, education and food processing facilities,” added Gagnon.
Excel Dryer continues to innovate with new XLERATOR accessories including the XChanger® Combination Kit – an ADA-compliant paper towel dispenser retrofit kit, adjustable air speed and sound control for sound-sensitive areas, anti-microbial Wall Guards, and a 1.1 inch noise reduction nozzle. All XLERATOR accessories retrofit quickly and easily into existing XLERATOR hand dryers.
XLERATOR is the original, patented, high-speed, energy efficient hand dryer and has become the New Industry Standard. XLERATOR is the only hand dryer to be MADE in USA CERTIFIED™, the first hand dryer to be GreenSpec® Listed and helps facilities qualify for multiple LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) credits by the U.S. Green Building Council. A peer reviewed ISO 14040 Life Cycle Assessment of XLERATOR confirmed it reduces the carbon footprint of hand drying by 50-70% when compared to traditional hand dryers and paper towels.
