About SAVORTEX

Transforming costly and wasteful corporate washrooms into profitable, smart spaces.

Of the 70 million corporate washrooms, 20 percent are equipped with environmentally unfriendly, inefficient, and unhygienic hand-dryers and around 80 percent offer expensive paper towels that create three million tons of waste, costing corporate landlords £10.5bn per year. As such, reducing building management costs, boosting facility efficiencies, and cutting energy use is very lucrative.

SAVORTEX has built the world’s first IoT-enabled messaging hand-dryer range to disrupt this inefficient sector and transform corporate washrooms into smart spaces. Built on Intel® technology, the SAVORTEX adDryer uses the Internet of Things (IoT) to deliver waste savings, alert cleaners to washroom needs based on usage, and engage consumers with tailored, high-definition video messages, allowing enterprises to transform costly commercial washrooms into connected, hygienic, and sustainable revenue-producing assets.

Challenges

Ingrained issues. High costs, inefficient maintenance, and energy consumption in washrooms make them difficult to manage. SAVORTEX wanted to solve multiple problems at once.

Excessive waste. The prevalent drying choice of expensive paper towels significantly impacts the environment in both manufacture and disposal.

Status quo. Conventional brushed-motor hand-dryers are energy-hungry and have a short life-expectancy so are costly to run, but finding budget to deploy new solutions on the necessary scale can be difficult.

Solutions

Strong performance per watt. SAVORTEX engineers optimised their digital-brushless motors to power its new range of smart hand-dryers because they are powerful yet very energy efficient and offer 10x the life compared to traditional brushed motor hand dryers.

Rugged and reliable. SAVORTEX partnered with Intel® and incorporated the latest Intel Atom processor because of its ruggedised compute platform in a sealed environment that can withstand extreme temperatures (-40 to 110 degrees) for excellent longevity.

IoT connectivity. SAVORTEX engineers deployed Intel® Smart Connect Technology, to be able to confidently connect to the cloud.

Impact

True sustainability. SAVORTEX offers a powerful, energy-efficient hand-dryer that delivers quick-dry in 11 seconds and runs on just 550 watts – significantly lower than competitor products in the marketplace.

Operational efficiency. The solution offers a connected washroom management system that can reduce clients’ operational costs by facilitating effective and responsive washroom cleaning.

New revenue. Thanks to hardware from Intel, the adDryer engages users with one-to-one, high definition video messages so enterprises can use real data to push content and drive additional revenue streams.
