Dyson Airblade Tap approved by HACCP21st of May 2013
The recently-launched Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer - which washes and dries hands with no need to leave the sink - has been approved by HACCP International under the non-food product certification scheme. This means it is safe for use in the food and beverage industry.
Clive Withinshaw, director of HACCP International explained: “The technology addresses a number of unacceptable risks posed by hand dryers in the past. It’s easy to clean and is a touch-free system. It also has a fast dry cycle. With the inclusion of a HEPA filter, these features combine to considerably reduce the risk of microbiological contamination and thereby meet HACCP International’s non-food product certification scheme criteria.”
The infrared sensors on the tap sensors pinpoint hand positions and release water from the tap stem. Once hands are wet and drying is requested, integrated circuitry computes the information and activates the digital motor, creating two high velocity sheets of air on the tap’s branches.
