Sol Aisenberg, George Freedman, A Ze ev Hed, Richard Pavelle: Hand dryer. Excel Dryer, Cantor Colburn, March 21, 2000: US06038786 (50 worldwide citation)

A wall-mounted hand dryer provides a heated pulsating or modulating air stream to break down a boundary layer of moisture on a user's hands to reduce the drying time. The hand dryer accomplishes this by quickly generating a heated air stream at a maximum temperature that is tolerable to the user, in ...
