As the name suggests, the Dryflow Tri-Jet has not 1, but 3 bladed air outlets that are purposefully placed to maximise fast and efficient drying times from two next generation high velocity motors. Users really do perceive the air speed as being as fast as anything else on the market, making sure they are totally satisfied with the drying experience. Our in-house testing showed genuine dry times of approx. 11 seconds, this is a real contender as one of the fastest high speed hand dryers on the market. European manufacturing assures quality as standard and this unit comes with a unique 7 year guarantee. Water is driven off the hands into an easy to service water tank, ensuring floors and walls stay dry and mess free. Microban antimicrobial protection prevents the growth of bacteria, mould and mildew in water stagnant areas. It will not wash away or wear out during the life of the product, therefore giving a superior level of germ-free protection than continuous use of disinfectants alone.  Customers looking for high levels of sterility from a fast and energy efficient hand dryer have placed these in locations like offices, food processing plants, restaurants, hotels, airports, nightclubs, and supermarkets.

Made from a thick ABS polymer, the Dryflow Tri-Jet has vandal proof properties. Like all modern high speed hand dryers, it utilises the high velocity airflow rather than relying on a heater element for rapid drying.  In locations that get constant use, heat is generated from the motor revolutions.  This maintains energy efficiency allowing low running costs.  Filtered air makes sure microbes are caught before being blown on the hands.  As an optional extra a HEPA Filter H12 can be purchased and installed which has a total retention rate of 99.5% microbes. Easy maintenance is brought by an audio and visual alarm system.  This alerts you to when the water tank needs emptying and the filter needs cleaning, essential tasks in making sure the hand dryer is working optimally throughout its lifetime. An odour neutraliser can be purchased which helps rid washrooms of bad smells. It also leaves a delicate and pleasant fragrance.

This energy efficient and fast drying 3 blade hand dryer looks great in any washroom.  Its unique sterile properties in the water collection areas minimises the concerns of bacteria growth associated with this type of model, which also makes the job of keeping the unit clean and disinfected a whole lot easier.

Technical Description

The cover and water tank are made from high impact 2.6 mm thick ABS Polymer with antibacterial protection in drying areas.  2 soft start motors combine to produce 30,000 RPM bringing about air speeds of 211MPH.  The stated manufacturer dry time is 10-15 seconds.  With no heater element present the motors run at 1760W rated power. Standard filter included with the option to upgrade to H12 HEPA filter.  Manufacturer stated noise level of 78dB at 1m. A self-diagnostic audio and visual system alerts when the water tank is full or the filter needs cleaning.

Performance Rating

  • Energy Consumption

    This rating is based on the watts 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.

    Watts per dry:

    • 0 – 1.99W = star rating 5
    • 2 – 2.99W = star rating 4.5
    • 3 – 3.99W = star rating 4
    • 4 – 4.99W = star rating 3.5
    • 5 – 5.99W = star rating 3
    • 6 – 6.99W = star rating 2.5
    • 7 – 7.99W = star rating 2
    • 8 – 8.99W = star rating 1.5
    • 9 – 9.99W = star rating 1
    • 10W and above = star rating 0.5
    3.0 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.

    Decibels (dB):

    • Up to 68dB = star rating 5
    • 69 – 70dB = star rating 4.5
    • 71 – 72dB = star rating 4
    • 73 – 74dB = star rating 3.5
    • 75 – 76dB = star rating 3
    • 77 – 78dB = star rating 2.5
    • 79 – 80dB = star rating 2
    • 81 – 82dB = star rating 1.5
    • 83 – 84dB = star rating 1
    2.5 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
    5.0 out of 5
  • Enhanced Hygiene

    Hand dryers are a hygienic method of drying the hands. The better the dry, the less the risk of carrying germs on wet hands. Some hand dryers however have gone that little bit further to enhance the hygienic aspects of the hand dryer. These ratings are based on these extra factors that have been added to aid the hygienic properties. These ratings are based on an added together scoring system where the higher the rating the more enhanced the hygienic properties of the hand dryer. Cold Plasma Clean (CPC) is the most advanced hygienic property on the market and scores a maximum of 5 stars.

    Enhanced Hygienic properties:

    • Cold Plasm Clean Technology = score 5 
    • Fast dry (<15secs) = score 0.5
    • Touch Free = score 0.5
    • Heat Sanitation = score 0.5
    • UV-C cleaning = score 0.5
    • HEPA filter = score 1.5
    • Anti Bacterial Coating = score 0.5
    • General filter = score 0.5
    • Ioniser = score 0.5
    3.0 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

What is the life expectancy of the Dryflow Tri-Jet?

So how long will this dryer last?

Hand dryers can have 2 types of motor which are:

  • A digital brushless motor
  • A universal brush motor

In theory, universal brush motors do not last as long as digital brushless motors and require the brushes to be changed periodically.  They also vary in their lifespan.  Digital motors however do cost more to repair should they fail at any point.  There are variations in the lifespans of both universal brushed motors and digital motors.

The best way to choose what is right for you is to look at your facility and the amount of use each hand dryer is expected to get.  This way it can be determined if a brushed motor hand dryer would be most suitable for you or whether investing in a digital brushless motor would be more cost effective.

How suitable is the Dryflow Tri-Jet for disabled users?

There are a few points to consider when choosing a hand dryer with disabled users in mind.  These include:

  • Wheelchair access with regard to users being able to position their hands correctly
  • The amount of moisture that will be left on the floor after drying if units are to be used by people physically impaired
  • The noise level of some high speed hand dryers may be too loud for some users, such as users with autism, multiple sclerosis etc.

Disabled areas often double up as baby changing facilities, so considerations include leaving extra space for double buggies, noise levels for children etc.

The Dryflow tri-Jet hand dryer has the following features that may negate these concerns:

  • Drip tank to prevent excess water going onto the floor or onto the user

How quiet is the Dryflow Tri-Jet?

Manufacturer s typically measure sound levels in terms of decibels dB(A) @ a 1 metre distance in a sound proof chamber. This measurement does not take into account the increase in noise when hands are positioned under/in the dryer or when the sound bounces off walls. Where possible we supply manufacturer's stated dB (A), and 2 independent tests which are more reflective of 'real conditions’.

Manufacturer stated

78dB(A)

Hands under in an anechoic chamber (sound proof)

N/A dB(A)

Hands under in a normal room*

N/A dB(A)

*represents maximum “real life” volume

Equivalent Examples:
Normal Conversation                      50 - 70dB(A)
Vacuum Cleaner                             70dB(A)
Busy Traffic / Alarm clock               80dB(A)
Lawn Mower / Chainsaw                 90dB(A)
*various internet sources

Please click here to read our guide to help understand what the perceived decibel level above would be equivalent to.

Due to the noise produced from the high speed motor of this hand dryer, we would not recommended it for areas where quiet noise levels are preferable.

It is worth noting that if your noise concern relates to the noise carrying into different areas of the building then pitch will be just as relevant as sound output (loudness). Higher frequency pitches will not travel through walls as easily as low frequency pitches for example. Please contact usdirectly to discuss your specific need.

Does it actually do what the manufacturer states? Independent testing information

At Intelligent Hand Dryers UK, our ethos is to bring you as much open, honest and reliable information as possible so you can make the most suitable and informed purchase.

We endeavour to include independently obtained results and in house testing, as well as manufacturer's specifications. This gives a true reflection of dry time performance, noise and energy efficiency of each hand dryer.

Noise level testing was conducted at the Building Research Establishment (BRE) and a leading independent testing facility.

We also provide in house video testing to demonstrate dry performance. This gives a visual demonstration in “real use” as opposed to using methodical scientific protocols.  The approximate dry time using this method was set when no spots of water could be seen on a paper towel after drying the hands.  This is over and above what is required to be classed as a “hygienic dry” which requires 95% of the hands to be dry after using the dryer.
