Performance Rating

  • 3.5 out of 5
    Energy Consumption

    This rating is based on the watt hours per dry of the hand dryer which is derived from the rated power and the time taken to dry the hands. We have used the figures based on either the manufacturer’s dry time, if yet to be in house tested or based on the in house testing dry time we have conducted. This will also be based on the most energy efficient setting, if the hand dryer is adjustable for speed and/or heat.

    Watt hours per dry:

    • 0 – 1.99Wh = star rating 5
    • 2 – 2.99Wh = star rating 4.5
    • 3 – 3.99Wh = star rating 4
    • 4 – 4.99Wh = star rating 3.5
    • 5 – 5.99Wh = star rating 3
    • 6 – 6.99Wh = star rating 2.5
    • 7 – 7.99Wh = star rating 2
    • 8 – 8.99Wh = star rating 1.5
    • 9 – 9.99Wh = star rating 1
    • 10Wh and above = star rating 0.5
  • 2.0 out of 5
    Quiet Sound Level

    This rating is based on the manufacturers stated sound level, usually at 1m. Please see the section titled "how quiet is the." for more information and independent test results, which give a more accurate noise decibel level. These ratings will also be based on the low noise setting, if the hand dryer is adjustable for speed. Therefore at full speed the hand dryer may not be quiet, however it may be adjustable to become quiet if this is required.

  • 3.0 out of 5
    Life Expectancy

    This rating is based on the number of motor life cycles (number of uses) the hand dryer, in theory, will last for. This is based on the motor life expectancy given to us in hours, from the manufacturer.

    The number of cycles (uses) has been calculated as follows:

    (Number of seconds in the hour / seconds per dry) x motor life hours

    For a more individualised longevity calculation based on your own usage numbers please use the life expectancy calculator on each product page.

    Number of motor life cycles:

    • 1,000,000 and over = star rating 5
    • 800,000 – 999,999 = star rating 4.5
    • 600,000 – 799,999 = star rating 4
    • 400,000 – 599,999 = star rating 3.5
    • 200,000 – 399,999 = star rating 3
    • 100,000 – 199,999 = star rating 2.5
    • 80,000 – 99,999 = star rating 2
    • 60,000 – 79,999 = star rating 1.5
    • 40,000 – 59,999 = star rating 1
    • 39,999 and under = star rating 0.5
  • 3.5 out of 5
    High Speed

    These ratings are based on the in house testing we have conducted regarding dry times. They show realistic comparisons of what to expect from each hand dryer. Please note that the manufacturer stated dry time is not always accurate when compared to the hand dryer being used in realistic conditions. The ratings are based on the hand dryer being placed at its high speed setting if it can be manually adjusted.

    Dry Speed (seconds):

    • 10 – 11 seconds = star rating 5
    • 12 – 13 seconds = star rating 4.5
    • 14 – 15 seconds = star rating 4
    • 16 – 17 seconds = star rating 3.5
    • 18 – 19 seconds = star rating 3
    • 20 – 21 seconds = star rating 2.5
    • 22 – 23 seconds = star rating 2
    • 24 – 25 seconds = star rating 1.5
    • 26 – 27 seconds = star rating 1
    • Over 28 seconds = star rating 0.5
  • 4.0 out of 5
    Vandal Resistance

    Some hand dryers would not be suitable for some locations where abuse may be likely such as a train station or night club. However the same hand dryer would be suitable for an office or school location. These ratings are based on an added together scoring system where the higher the rating, the more suitable we would recommend for areas where abuse may be likely.

    Vandal Resistance score

    • Compact size = score 0.5              
    • Decreased blockage potential = score 0.5
    • Additional Backplate/ fixings strength = score 1
    • Anti-vandal extras = score 1
    • Metal / ABS = score 1    
    • Cover thickness 1.5mm or more = score 0.5        
    • No leverage points (design) = score 0.5

Description

The Biodrier Biobot HD-BB08 hand dryer is specifically designed to encourage young children to wash and dry their hands properly. Thorough hand drying is vitally important in hand hygiene and hand dryers help to preserve the environment by reducing waste and associated carbon emissions, so we think it’s a great idea to get our young children keen on hand dryers

The Biodrier Biobot Hand Dryer is visually appealing and fun for kids to use, however it is more than just a nice child friendly hand dryer, it also boasts excellent, energy efficient performance. The Biodrier Biobot comes with a free, colourful, splash-back board to mount the hand dryer too.

Biodrier state that Biobot HD-BB08 consumes just 10% of the energy used by a conventional hand dryer and has a whopping 98.5% saving over paper towels.

By teaching children the benefits of using energy efficient products they will help reduce our carbon footprint, which will provide a better environment for their future and the generations to come.

Why is the Biodrier Biobot an Energy Efficient Hand Dryer?

Energy efficiency is a simple calculation between the dry speed and rated power. Conventional warm air hand dryers typically use a low powered (0.24-0.3kw) motor and a high energy consumption (1.8 to 2kw) heater element; they have a rated power over 2kw with 30 second plus dry times. The Biodrier Biobot has a high powered 0.65kw motor and a highly energy efficient heater element 0.25kw, the combination leads to a 75 to 85% energy and cost saving.

Is the Biodrier Biobot HD-BB08 a High Speed Hand Dryer?

Yes, it has a compressed airflow that travels at 64m/s. Not as fast as some but 2-3 times the airspeed of a conventional warm air hand dryer. We predict a realistic sub 20 second dry time.

How Quiet is the Biodrier Biobot Hand Dryer?

Manufacturer’s specification states 76 dBA based on noise chamber tests. Although we have not tested this unit in situ (with surfaces that amplify noise) it is clear that this will measure above 76 dBA in a realistic environment, having said that it is certainly quieter than many high speed hand dryers. However, there is an alternative hand dryer suitable for young children, Puff the Magic Dryer and a full section of quiet hand dryers suitable for children here.
