High-Speed XLERATOR, Energy-Efficient Hand Dryers

Product Overview

Excel Dryer’s new, expanded and enhanced product line — featuring XLERATOR®, XLERATOReco® and ThinAir® Hand Dryers — facilitates the design of the very best hand drying solution for any restroom environment. All Excel Dryer high-efficiency hand dryer models come with new 50% longer life and industry-leading 7 year warranty. Enhanced standard features include adjustable speed and sound controls, adjustable heat settings (high, medium, low and off), an externally visible Service LED and multi-voltage options available in 110V-120V or 208V-277V volts in 50 or 60 hertz, accommodating global electrical needs.


The high-speed, energy-efficient XLERATOR is the only hand dryer to be Made In USA Certified®, is still the best and number one brand sold in the world. The XLERATOR Hand Dryer dries fast, using 80 percent less energy than conventional hand dryers and provides a 95 percent savings versus paper towels, while eliminating their labor, maintenance and waste.

XLERATOReco Hand Dryer

The high-speed, energy-efficient XLERATOReco Hand Dryer uses ‘no heat’ technology to dry hands fast using only 500 watts, making it the most energy-efficient and environmentally friendly hand dryer on the planet and number one brand sold in the world. With a maximum draw of four and a half amps, multiple XLERATOReco units can be installed on one 20-amp circuit, which significantly reduces installation time and costs. The XLERATOReco Hand Dryer can be ordered with an optional Noise Reduction Nozzle or HEPA Filtration System to create a quiet and clean air flow and is available with the industry’s most complete line of accessories.

ThinAir Hand Dryer

The ThinAir Hand Dryer dries hands fast using 950 watts or less and when surface-mounted, meets ADA compliance standards. ThinAir, like all high-efficiency hand dryer models from Excel Dryer, now comes with new enhanced standard features, including adjustable sound, speed and heat controls, multi-voltage options, and an externally visible service LED.

XLERATOR Accessories and Options

HEPA Filtration: The HEPA Filtration System creates a clean air flow by removing 99.97 percent of bacteria at 0.3 microns from the air stream. It is the only one with a removable, washable metal mesh pre-filter for reliable performance and extended filter life. The HEPA Filtration System is easily retrofitted into existing XLERATOR and XLERATOReco Hand Dryers or can be purchased with new high-speed, energy-efficient hand dryer models.

ADA-Compliant Recess Kit: The ADA-Compliant Recess Kit allows XLERATOR Hand Dryers to recess to a depth of less than four inches in the wall, meeting ADA guidelines relative to restroom walkways and helping to keep water off the wall and floor. The brushed stainless finish wall box and dryer mounting plate are fabricated of stainless steel.

Custom Covers: Excel Dryer offers the most cover finishes and options in the industry featuring exclusive Kolorfusion digital image technology to customize covers with graphics, colors, logos or a sustainability message. This new technology has been adopted by celebrated brands and organizations such as Dunkin’ Donuts, Starbucks, Coca-Cola, the New England Patriots and many more. The zinc die-cast models can also be painted with any custom color powder coat DuPont® paint color. Stainless steel covers can be customized with digital images and PVD coatings such as Gold, Copper, Bronze, etc.

XChanger® Retrofit Kit: The XChanger kit allows paper towel dispensers and waste receptacles to be retrofitted with XLERATOR Hand Dryer models. The panel is easily installed over the space left by the former paper dispenser and will not cause damage to the existing wall surface. The XChanger meets Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) four inch protrusion accessibility guidelines. Also available is an ADA height-compliant XChanger Retrofit Kit, which adheres to both the four inch protrusion guidelines and height requirements for people in wheelchairs with the opening to the unit lowered seven inches.

Anitimicrobial Wall Guards: Excel Dryer’s antimicrobial Wall Guards are made specifically to fit underneath electric hand dryers to protect wall finishes from water residue blown off of hands by the powerful air stream. The black and white Wall Guards, MICROBAN® technology inhibits bacteria growth that can cause stains on walls and surfaces. Ideal for high-traffic restrooms, Wall Guards are hygienic and easy to clean. Also available in a stainless finish without the MICROBAN additive.

Noise Reduction Nozzle: The Excel Dryer Noise Reduction Nozzle reduces the sound level of XLERATOR and XLERATOReco Hand Dryers by 9 dB by eliminating air deflection noise. The nozzle is easily retrofitted into existing units or can be specified with new dryer models at no extra charge.
