At the 2008 International Builders' Show (IBS) Hydromatic Technologies Corp. will launch a new technology for clothes dryers that will reduce the appliance's energy consumption up to 50% and cuts clothes-drying time by up to 41%.

As the second-most energy consuming appliance in the home, clothes dryers are not required to abide by energy standards. With Hydromatic's technology, the company says that dryers will finally go "green," and the company is poised to set energy standards for the appliance three years ahead of the deadline set by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

Hydromatic's technology, named the Dryer Miser, will be publicly displayed for the first time at the IBS. The company, which is based in Orlando, FL, will demonstrate how it uses a specially-engineered fluid to dry clothes using hydronic technology. By heating up a non-toxic fluid in a self-contained system, the dryer produces enough heat to dry clothes faster than traditional dryers, resulting in less energy consumption and reduced energy costs for consumers.

An international patent is currently pending for Hydromatic's technology, and Underwriters Laboratories is scheduled to give approval of the product in April 2008. In addition, DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy declared that Hydromatic's prototype is market-ready. The Dryer Miser will be available to the public in Fall 2008 as an after-market kit that can be installed by service technicians. Discussions are currently being held with international appliance manufacturers to offer the technology as original equipment in new dryers in the near-future.
