Excel Dryer, Inc.


Excel Dryer, Inc., acquired by Denis Gagnon in 1997, manufactures the industry's finest quality American made hand dryers featuring the XLERATOR®, the New Industry Standard! XLERATOR is the original, patented high-speed energy efficient hand dryer. XLERATOR completely dries hands three times faster (in 10–15 seconds) and uses 80% less energy than conventional hand dryers. XLERATOR represents a 95% cost savings when compared to paper towels, eliminates their maintenance and waste, while creating a more hygienic restroom environment.

XLERATOR is the only dryer that is Made in USA Certified®, the first to be GreenSpec® Listed and qualifies for several LEED® Credits. A peer reviewed (per ISO 14040 standards) Life Cycle Assessment of XLERATOR confirmed it reduces the carbon footprint of hand drying by 50–70% when compared to both traditional hand dryers and even 100% recycled paper towels.

XLERATOR is now available with a full line of accessories featuring the only certified HEPA filtration system with a washable pre-filter for reliable performance and a longer life span, antimicrobial wall guards and the XChanger® paper towel dispenser retrofit kit. XLERATOR helps commercial facilities save time, money and the environment.

For more than 43 years, Excel's full line of hand dryers has provided cost-effective dryers for schools, hospitals, airports, service stations, correctional facilities, restaurants, stadiums, movie theaters, health clubs, office buildings, factories, hotels and many other commercial facilities.

At Excel Dryer, quality is a way of life. Nothing else is acceptable. This philosophy has always guided us in developing products that are dependable, easy to install or service and satisfying to use.

Excel Dryer, Inc. is headquartered in East Longmeadow, Massachusetts. Our products are marketed through an established network of Sales Representatives who call on more than 2,800 distributors nationally. Excel Hand Dryers can be specified in 50 Hz or 60 Hz and from 100-Volt to 277-Volt for distribution worldwide. In an effort to continue providing the most innovative hand drying experience, Excel Dryer will be releasing an updated XLERATOR model featuring a new control assembly. The new control assembly has several improved features including a motor speed control to adjust the speed and sound level of the dryer, multiple voltage options of 110V or 208-277V at no additional charge and the ability to turn the heating element on or off, significantly reducing energy consumption. Excel Dryer is excited to announce that demonstration units are currently available for presentations and trial period programs only; the product will be available for purchase in early fall.
