How to calculate the power consumptions of hand dryer?

Understanding and optimizing these factors can contribute to a more energy-efficient hand dryer, aligning with sustainability goals and reducing operational costs. This is why it is beneficial to purchase hand dryers from an experienced manufacturer. Calculating the power consumption of hand dryers involves several factors.

Motor Efficiency: The efficiency of the motor in the hand dryer significantly influences power consumption. A more efficient motor generally requires less power to operate.

Heating Element: If the hand dryer includes a heating element, its wattage and usage duration contribute to the overall power consumption. High-wattage heating elements consume more electricity.

Sensor Technology: The type of sensor used in the hand dryer affects its energy usage. Modern infrared sensors are designed for energy efficiency by activating the dryer only when needed.

Drying Time: The duration a user spends drying their hands directly impacts the overall energy consumption. Shorter drying times contribute to energy efficiency.

Standby Power: Some hand dryers have standby power when not in use. Minimizing standby power or utilizing energy-saving modes can reduce overall consumption.

Design and Airflow: The design of the hand dryer, including the efficiency of the airflow, affects the drying speed. More efficient designs can achieve quicker drying times, reducing energy usage.

Environmental Conditions: Ambient conditions, such as the temperature and humidity of the environment, can influence the energy required for effective hand drying.

Maintenance: Regular maintenance ensures that the hand dryer operates optimally. Malfunctions or inefficiencies can lead to increased power consumption.

To learn the power consumptions of each hand dryer, you can calculate by the the formula below:

Total watt/1000 x drying time (seconds)/60/60=____kw/hr
Take EcoFast high speed hand dryer for example. It’s 1000W/1000x10 seconds/60/60=0.0027 kw/hr.
