Installation Precautions
Caution
L Do not install in the following types of location.
1. Outdoors
2. Locations where the temperature could be lower than 0ºC.
3. Locations where there is a lot of dust.
4. Locations where the temperature could be higher than 40ºC.
5. Locations where there is a lot of condensation.
6. Locations where salt damage may occur.
7. Vehicles (including ships and airplanes)
8. Locations where the appliance is in direct or strong sunlight
9. Near food or tableware.
10. Locations where the appliance may come into direct contact with water.
11. Kitchens (Where there is a risk of water splashing.)
12. Locations where corrosive, neutral, or reductive gases are present.
13. Rooms that have a sterilization basin, swimming pools, bathrooms.
LEnsure a distance of at least 130mm from the floor. Failure to do so may result in dirt or water entering the
appliance, causing damage.
LEnsure there is at least 150mm on both sides of the appliance to allow for maintenance.
Note
LDo not use with chemicals on your hands.
LBe sure to completely wipe off any detergents or chemicals on the appliance.
LOnly use the specified cleaning agents.
LIf water is sucked into the appliance, it may cause damage to the mechanism, or moisture may be absorbed into
the soundproofing material, allowing bacteria to breed. Therefore, do not allow water to come in contact with the
air filter or air duct.
LDrying time (listed in the catalogue) will vary by individual user.
LContinuous operation in high-temperature environments (40oC) may cause overheating to be detected in
electronic components, with an error indication appearing.
This does not mean that the unit has malfunctioned, with the error sign automatically terminated when the
temperature declines.
L Do not use the product to dry any chemicals or similar substances from the hands; failure to observe this
precaution may shorten product life.
L Because the product is an electrical appliance, it should not be cleaned directly with pressurised water or by
similar means.
L Do not clean the front cover of a silver appliance with alcohol.
=“Alcohol” means a disinfectant with an ethanol content of 83% or less.
L Do not use any of the following cleaning materials
s Solvents such as thinner or benzene s Acid, alkaline or chlorine detergents s Mold and mildew removers
s Citrus-based or other plant-based detergents s Nylon scourers or abrasives s Antiseptics
Damage to the appliance (such as rusting) is not covered by the warranty if the above cautions are not
observed.
L To clean the exterior of the main unit, remove any dust or grime using a damp cloth. If using a detergent, use
only a neutral detergent diluted with water. (pH: 6-8)
L After cleaning with neutral detergent or alcohol, be sure to wipe away all remaining traces of the detergent or
alcohol.
L Water collected in the tank and drain receptacle at the bottom of the main unit must be emptied regularly to
avoid overflow.
L Clean the air filter approximately once a week.
L Jet Towel service life is about 7 years, figured at 400 uses daily. Depending upon specific use conditions, this
period may be shortened. Please contact Mitsubishi Electric if daily use broadly exceeds the designed level. In
cases when the number of uses doubles the average frequency, for example, the unit's lifespan will be reduced
to one-half.
L Water drawn into the main unit may be absorbed by the soundproofing material, resulting in bacterial build-up.
To prevent this, ensure that water does not get in around the air filter and air intake.
=Safety considerations require that the serial number and/or appropriate markings or labeling be visible. When purchasing the product, make sure they are displayed on the main unit.
LCertain ratings and specifications may change due to product improvements or modifications.
LWhile every effort has been made to represent product colours herein accurately, slight deviations from actual colour may be noted due to the printing process.
Mitsubishi Electric Corporation's Nakatsugawa Works is an ISO certified plant,

No Waste Paper
Substantial Cost Reduction
The high-speed Jet Towel TM hand dryer uses jet
streams of air to dry hands, eliminating the paper
waste associated with the use of paper towels, and
thus relieving you of the trouble of waste disposal as
well. The preservation of forest resources will also
contribute to enhancing your corporate image.
The monthly expense is reduced to a fraction of the
cost in comparison to paper towels or rolled-cloth
towels. The higher the use, the greater the savings.

For Customers
Easy Maintenance
Improved Service
Appealing to building management companies too!
The only maintenance required is clean the air filter
and removing water from the drain tank*. Save time by
eliminating the daily replenishment of paper towels,
disposal of paper waste and replacing rolled-cloth
towels.
Evaluated highly for its sanitary characteristics, the
Jet Towel T M is popular among facilities and shops
alike. In addition to its abilit y to dr y hands complete l y in a mat te r of se conds a nd of fe r a cle a n

Easy hand access from both sides.
Bacterial growth suppressed for all parts
susceptible to contact with water.
Independent air ducts ensure airflow is always fresh.

Antibacterial Treatment
Open-side Design
Repeat a few times
The dryer is open on both sides, enabling easy hand access from the side
without touching the unit. Inserting hands from the sides as shown in the
photo, and slowly raising and lowering them a few times maximizes drying
performance.
All parts susceptible to coming in contact with water, such as handdrying section, drain tank and water drainage duct (drain hose), are
subjected to antibacterial treatment to ensure highly sanitary conditions.

In addition to an extremely hygienic
touch-free design, emphasis has also
been placed on ensuring the flow of
fresh-air. The air-intake port and airflow
route are isolated from the water drainage

Can be aligned with the top of sink basins.
The ergonomic rectangular design matches well with most sink styles. Overall unit size was taken into consideration as well, ensuring
that the top of the unit can be neatly aligned with the top of the sink basin. To ease congestion and prevent water spillage, the installation of multiple units is recommended for places frequented by many people such as movie theaters and amusement facilities where
many may people use dryers at the same time.

“We reviewed 3 versions of hand dryers and chose the
Mitsubishi Jet Towel because of its low noise level and
low power consumption. Being a low carbon company,
we needed to follow our energy-saving principles. We
have put up signs above the Jet Towel which tells users
how much energy they are saving by using the product.
Previously we used paper towels which often ran out, so
there was either nothing to dry hands on, or so many of
them were used that the rubbish bins were overflowing.
This became unpleasant in a washroom. The Jet Towel
has made the washroom area a much nicer environment.”

message to our clientele.
Customer feedback extremely
positive.
“Our customers have clearly shown a
preference for environmentally responsible
options in the restrooms. Our new restrooms
are low-water use, low energy use, and now
paper towel free. Before we used the Jet
Towel, we avoided hand dryers because of
the noise, slipping hazard, and most
importantly the frustration caused by the older
style of hand dryers. The Jet Towel is now a
featured fixture in our restrooms.”
We greatly reduce our
maintenance cost with Jet Towel
as there’s no need for us to
replenish paper towels and
remove the waste.
“The installation of the Jet Towels in our
restrooms helps reduce cleaning and operation
costs significantly. It also reduces paper
wastage and offers rapid drying for our guests.
There is less cumbersome work for our
maintenance to replenish paper towels or clear
waste. The design of the Jet Towel also blends
into the interior design of our restrooms and
improves our restroom ambience.”
