Average Output Temperature
-We acclimatized the body dryer by running it for 4 minutes on the second speed function
-We took the temperature reading at 2, troche 4 and 6 minute intervals
-We used a 0°C – 300°C metal probe thermometer
-Room temperature was 21°C
Position = We used the 9th tear-drop pore and the large center hole
Distance = We positioned the thermometer 0cm, ed 5cm and 10cm away from the tear-drop pore.
0cm from tear-drop pore
Average: 152°C / 3 = 50.6°C
5cm from tear-drop pore
Average: 103°C / 3 = 34.3°C
10cm from tear-drop pore
Average: 87°C / 3 = 29°C
Average air temperature: 113.9 / 3 = 37.96°C => 38°C
3 – 6minutes
Shower Duration = 8 minutes, this as the average time a person takes to shower.
Water Temperature = 40C, this is the average temperature of shower water.
Body Dryer Operation = We tested the body dryer based on the inventors recommendation. Speed 1 while showering, Speed 2 for drying after showering.
