Jet Force Hand Dryer JF1G

JF1G

Applications: Airports, Cinema/Theatre, Heavy use (301 to 500 uses per day), Hotel, Office, Public Attractions, Restaurant, Retail Outlet

The Jet Force is a fast drying, blade style hand dryer with a performance and specification that belies its price tag.  These prove popular with customers who want a quality blade style hand dryer, but are not looking to pay the price usually associated with this model. They’re located in offices, public buildings, hotels and restaurants as they deliver quiet, yet fast and energy efficient drying. Two filtered blades of air powerfully force the water off the hands and straight into an easily emptied collection tray, avoiding mess on floors and walls. A super long life brushless motor is backed up by an extended 5-year guarantee (2 years longer than any of the competition!). These particular dryers were selected for the London Olympic stadium 2012 as they are able to cope with heavy, constant use; up to 500 users a day.

Essentially one of the quietest hand dryers in its class, this Quite Mark approved product allows you to set the motor speed at a level that suits the user or environment.  An intelligent heating system, which can be switched off totally should energy efficiency be key, brings comfort to the dry in cold environments as it automatically adds instant heat to the airflow when room temperature drops below 24C.  Most modern hand dryers do not have a heater element to help minimise energy usage, so this is a great addition, only increasing energy consumption when it is needed.  An LED display helps deliver the perfect dry by instructing the user on how fast to draw the hands through the airflow.  This same LED gives on site error codes, which is essential in saving time and money on maintenance call outs as you can see straight away where the fault lies.

The Jetforce has been awarded the Quiet Mark. Click on the logo for more information.  This means it is one of the quietest on the market, in its category.

Packed with some great features, the Jet Force certainly exceeds the expectations brought about by its price.  Rapid drying, supported by in intelligent energy saving system, means that every user achieves super dry hands, whilst running costs and maintenance needs are low.

Technical Description

The outer casing is made from an impact resistant, flame resistant ABS plastic with antimicrobial coating. Dual concentrated jets of air flow from apertures on either side of the dryer providing a blade of airflow. The motor is rated at 750 watts and is a long life, 20,000rpm digital brushless type. The manufacturer dry times are stated as being 10-12 seconds and you may see this advertised for the same product under a different brand that has come out of the same factory. Our strict testing has shown the dry times to actually be around 16 seconds. Enclosed switches on the side of the unit activates the two speed motor and heater element. On high speed setting the dryer works using an intelligent temperature controlled system that senses if the air temperature drops below 24C and maintains a range between 24° and 40°, only activating the 900 watt heater element as required. On the low speed setting the heater element automatically activates to a constant temperature with safety controls to prevent overheating. Total rated power is 1.85kw, this is variable from 0.75kw to 1.85kw during use. The sound level is between 70-75dB and has been awarded the Quiet Mark. The air intake is filtered of 99.99% of bacteria by a filter. The unit also has an 1000ml drainage tank which collects the excess water from hand drying. Both the filter and drainage tank are easily accessible from the bottom of the dryer. Intelligent diagnosis system informs service technician by creating an error code on display in event of fault.

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
    3.5 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
    4.0 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
    3.5 out of 5
  • Long lasting brushless motor - suitable for high traffic locations
  • Quiet at just 70 dB(A) yet with fast dry times of 15-17 seconds (proven by in house testing)

What is the life expectancy of the Jet Force?

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.

To work out the annual life expectancy in your facility for the Jet Force hand dryer click here

Due to the nature of the longer lasting and more robust digital brushless motor, we envisage that this unit would comfortably last a number of years even with extreme usage of above 500 users per day.  Of course not all facilities are going to have this kind of traffic and therefore this unit would last many more years with less use.

How vandal resistant is the Jet Force?

Depending upon the location, hand dryers can be damaged through vandalism. This includes being leveraged off the wall, damaging the outer casing and putting foreign objects into the openings. Locations this is likely to occur include pubs, nightclubs, transport facilities such as train stations, schools, stadiums, arenas and unattended public toilets to name a few.

The Jet Force doesn’t have any additional vandal resistant properties, however this unit has been used successfully at the London Olympics and therefore has been shown it can survive in public areas with high traffic.

How suitable is the Jet Force 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 Jet Force hand dryer has the following features that may negate these concerns:

  • A relatively quiet hand dryer
  • Drip tank to prevent excess water going onto the floor or onto the user.

What’s our expert view and brand comparison of the Jet Force hand dryer? (Buyers guide)

The Jet Force hand dryer is a budget priced alternative to the big name brands. Intelligent hand dryers UK would describe the Jet Force as the middle ground. More energy efficient than the Dyson Airblade but 5-6 seconds slower, quieter than the Airblade but not as quiet as the Mitsubishi Jet Towel. Nice looking but not as nice looking as the Airblade or D-flow. So the Jet Force hand dryer is a compromise but a good one.

What extra hygiene aspects does the Jet Force have?

Washing hands correctly is the best way to ensure high levels of hand hygiene.  Making sure hands are completely dry is the next important aspect of hand hygiene.

Most modern hand dryers have standard hygienic properties such as fast dry times and touch free sensors to activate. However for added peace of mind some models have enhanced hygienic properties.

The extra hygiene aspects this hand dryer has are:

  • Anti-bacterial filter (Not HEPA filter) T
  • Touch free operation

How quiet is the Jet Force?

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 manufacturers stated dB(A), and 2 independent tests which are more reflective of 'real conditions’.

The Jet Force has been awarded the Quiet Mark. For more information view www.quietmark.com.  This means it is one of the quietest on the market, in its category.

Manufacturer stated

70 – 75 dB(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.

We would state that the Jet Force hand dryer is one of the quietest “hands in” dryers on the market and should certainly be considered if noise levels are a concern for you.

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.

How fast does the Jet Force dry your hands?

In our experience, the dry time stated by the manufacturer is not always the same in reality when used by the consumer.  As experts in our field we like to show the types of variations we have found from independent testing and in house testing so that you have all relevant information before you purchase.

# Conducted using our own in house testing protocols (visual demonstration in “real use” as opposed to scientific protocols)

Our in house testing, the video of which can be seen here, showed that with the heater element not engaged a relatively quick dry time of approximate 17 seconds could be achieved.  In a colder environment the heater element would engage.  This is not as fast as the more expensive “hands in” options however it is still a great dry time nonetheless.

Our results show that the manufacturer stated time of around 10 seconds may be a little exaggerated.  The Jet Force has 2 rows of jet outlets that force the air to form 2 ‘blades’ of air. The airflow is an impressive 212mph or 95m/s.

How Energy Efficient is the Jet Force?

The energy efficiency of a hand dryer is derived by dividing the rated power by the dry speed. Ultimately what is important is how many watt-hours per dry are used.

For comparison, a standard conventional hand dryer users around 25 – 30Wh per dry.

The above manufacturer rating is based on their stated dry times of 10 – 15 seconds and includes the range if the heater element is engaged when the washroom is below 24C or not engaged when a washroom is above 24C.

Our in house testing dry times of approximately 17 seconds were conducted with the room temperature above 24C and therefore energy efficiency was maximised.  However you can see that this is still a very energy efficient hand dryer when compared to standard conventional hand dryers, with a significantly greater rated power.  We would envisage that the unit will be used at its most economical and most washrooms would be above 24C.  This is of course variable dependent upon each individual location.

Carbon emissions produced by the Jet Force

We are passionate about helping others reduce carbon emissions, which in turn will help slow down the negative effects of global warming.  For more information about carbon emissions and the environment click here

The following table shows the approx. amount of carbon emissions produced to complete 1000 dries:

Jet Force

1.91 Kg/CO2 per 1000 dries

Paper Towels*

22.5 Kg/CO2 per 1000 dries

Standard warm air hand dryer+

13.5 Kg/CO2 per 1000 dries

*Based on using 3 towels per dry
+Standard warm air hand dryer use approx 25 watts per dry

Paper towels are based on 22.5gms/Co2 per dry and standard warm air hand dryers are based on Carbon Trusts measurement of 1 kW = 0.54 kg/Co2.

To work out the annual running costs and carbon emissions in your facility for the Jet Force hand dryer click here – this will also show you how many virgin trees you will be saving by using this hand dryer compared to paper towels.

The above figures are based on the in house dry times of approximately 17 seconds and with it at its most economic setting without heat.  With heat and around the same dry time this figure would still only be around 4.72 Kg/C02 per 1000 driers. However in most conditions you will not have a washroom below 24C at all times. It is still a significant reduction in carbon emissions when compared to the other two methods of drying.

We are seriously committed, as a Carbon Trust accredited supplier, to provide you with the most eco-friendly hand dryers available.  Please click here to see more about what we do to help improve the environment and reduce carbon emissions

What are the operating costs of the Jet Force

So how much will it cost you to run this hand dryer?

The below figures are per 1000 dries, please see below regarding how to calculate a more personalised annual cost for you:

Jet Force*

£0.43

Paper Towels+

£12.50

Standard warm air hand dryer*#

£3

*Based on 12p per kW of electricity unit cost
+Based on 2.5 towels used per dry
#Standard warm air hand dryer use approx 25 watts per dry

Based on a 12p per kW of electricity unit cost, we would anticipate the Jet Force hand dryer would cost approximately £0.000425 per average drying cycle. These and the above figures are based on our in house testing dry times, which can be viewed here, without the heater element engaged.  At the same dry time with the heater element engaged we would expect the cost to be around £1.05 per 1000 dries.  However in most conditions you will not have a washroom below 24C at all times, therefore the unit will be running at its most economical most of the time.

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.

21-Jul-2016 Jet Force Hand Dryer JF1G

Service rating : Decent web site - prompt delivery
Product : Excellent hand drier. We purchased two for the toilets in our office. The supplier's own review and video on their web site don't really do it justice. On the warm setting it will dry your hands adequately in 10 seconds and completely in about 14. Only slightly strange thing is that the "purple" led lights (which i am sure are pointless) stay on all the time. The LED display on the top counts down the drying time and when resting displays a number which i assume to be room temperature but this is not documented anywhere. Installation instructions are a bit lightweight but it is easy to install with the fixings supplied even onto a stud wall.
