Eco Friendly Infrared Clothes Dryer Marrying Functionality and Space Saving Design
The SecO clothes dryer is an attractive home appliance that is designed by Jack McCulloch to bridge the gap between large tumble dryers and drying racks or clothing lines. This clother dyer looks like a contemporary coat rack, blending the contemporary simplicity, new technology, space saving design and attractive look.
The clothes dryer uses long wave infrared ceramic heaters with radiant directional wavelengths that oscillate water molecules, making them evaporate so that clothes are dry and wrinkle free in minutes. Ideal for tiny homes and small apartments, this space saving clothes dryer design folds down and can easily be stored under a bed or in a closet.
The base unit contains a low power, practically silent fan which draws the moist air down through holes in the aluminum tube and through a dehumidifying container in the base. The container holds self-indicating color changing desiccant silica beads which dehumidifies the air. As the beads become saturated their color changes, and the user is aware they soon need recharging. When fully saturated, the beads can be recharged by placing in a microwave.
SecO will communicate the state of drying to the user. When the clothes dryer is switched on, frosted LED backlit panels illuminate. Sensors determine the humidity of the immediate surrounding area.
As the clothes get dryer, the humidity decreases and this is visually represented by the LEDs becoming dimmer. The user can determine the clothes are getting dryer without having to touch them.
Far infrared ceramic technology only uses low watt ceramic heaters. The other electronic components also only use a very low amount of power. This results in incredible low running costs of 5p an hour with an average running time, to dry 6kg of washing, of 4 hours.
This is respectively the best and cheapest way to dry clothes. The infrared dryers won’t damage fabrics. They have no carbon emissions, offering contemporary, attractive and eco friendly products for modern homes.
