American Dryer's Patented Cold Plasma Clean Technology Independently Proven to Kill Dangerous Germs

New Hand Dryer Revolutionizes Hand Hygiene Without Chemicals

LIVONIA, MI--(Marketwired - November 12, 2014) - American Dryer's Cold Plasma Clean (cPc®) technology, used in its premier high-speed hand dryers, recently underwent rigorous testing that confirms its power in killing germs including E.coli, Staph, C.diff, MRSA, and Salmonella.

American Dryer enlisted two of the nation's leading microbiology labs for testing. EMSL Labs is an elite CDC-certified lab with AIHA accreditation in industrial hygiene and environmental microbiology. Antimicrobial Test Labs (ATL) is a GLP-compliant laboratory audited by the EPA and FDA. Independent studies from EMSL and ATL have shown effectiveness against E.coli, Staph, C.diff, MRSA, and Salmonella* with kill rates up to 99.6 percent. cPc technology has been independently tested for safety by Underwriters Laboratory (UL), passing both the UL867 and California Resource Board (CARB) standards.

"With cPc, we've gone beyond hand drying," American Dryer Vice President of Sales & Marketing Jim Fisher said. "This latest technology, and its testing results, revolutionizes hand dryers and hand hygiene. Our germ killing technology is important in settings like schools, hospitals, restaurants, food service organizations, and many more industries."

American Dryer's eXtremeAir cPc® uses a generator that converts air into cold plasma through a bipolar ionization process. High levels of ionization are found in the fresh air breeze off the ocean or on top of a mountain. The generator inside the dryer uses steady state positive and negative discharge points to split water molecules in the air into oppositely charged hydrogen and oxygen ions. These ions, in turn, clean the air without chemicals.

Additionally, cPc technology goes beyond HEPA filtration, which simply traps mold and germs inside the dryer. cPc technology is a 100 percent solid-state, maintenance-free device. There are no expensive filters, chemicals or labor. eXtremeAir cPc dryers are compact and equipped with universal voltage and adjustable sound and speed.

Proven cold plasma technology has been successfully used to purify the air in commercial buildings since the 1930s. The prestigious Cleveland Clinic, Baylor College of Medicine and Boston Children's Hospital currently use it, and most recently, cold plasma has been used in medicine to treat surgical incisions and in the food processing industry to kill bacteria. The eXtremeAir cPc hand dryer has advanced this technology to kill germs during hand drying.
