PLASMACLUSTER® ION TECHNOLOGY
Naturally Advanced Technology for Truly Cleaner Air
Sharp’s exclusive, patented Plasmacluster® Ion technology reduces microscopic pollutants that traditional filters cannot trap, by replicating nature’s own cleaning process of producing positive and negative ions from water vapor in the air. These Plasmacluster® Ions refresh the air without any harmful chemicals or perfumes.
Clean Every Corner of the Room
Plasmacluster® ions disperse throughout the room, actively attacking germs, bacteria, viruses, mold, and fungus, reaching more pollutants than conventional filter-based systems! Traditional systems rely on air passing through the filter, but Plasmacluster® ions can spread to every corner of the room to actively clean. Plasmacluster® ions reduce odors at the molecular level, even from embedded odors in carpeting, drapery, and furniture.
How Does Plasmacluster® Work?
Sharp’s patented Plasmacluster® Ion air purification technology mimics nature’s own cleaning process, by splitting water molecules into positively and negatively charged ions, which spread throughout the room and actively break down pollutants like germs, airborne and surface-adhering bacteria, fungus, mold, viruses and clinging odors, and then return to the air as water vapor.
Plasmacluster® Ion Performance Tests on Microorganisms
Testing done in a closed laboratory over four hours.
Proven effective in reducing certain viruses including MS2 (90.3% Reduction). MS2 is a Viral Stimulant and surrogate in laboratory testing for many common infectious viruses such as influenza and smallpox.
Proven effective in reducing certain bacteria including:
- E. Coli (94.0% Reduction)
- Staphylococcus Epidermidis (84.3% Reduction)
- Serratia marcescens (89.7% Reduction)
Proven effective in reducing certain common molds and fungus, including:
- Penicillium Citrinum (87.7% Reduction)
- Aspergillus Niger (85.8% Reduction)
Mold spores are present in both indoor and outdoor air. Reducing the mold level in a home minimizes its effect on allergies.
Proven effective in reducing most odors that conventional filters don’t reach. Plasmacluster® ions can reduce odors, even those that are embedded in carpets, drapery, and furniture, such as cigarette smoke, cooking smells, pets, and perspiration.
Verified Around the World Built-Into Over 80,000,000 Products Since 2001
Plasmacluster® Ion Technology has proven effective in reducing certain viruses including MS2 (Influenza viral stimulant), bacteria, including E-Coli Staphylococcus epidermidis and Serratia, molds and funguses, including Aspergillus Niger, and certain odors that conventional filters don’t reach, like odors in upholstery and drapery. Plasmacluster® Ion Technology has been tested by 17 laboratories in the USA, UK, Germany, Japan, South Korea, China, and Vietnam.
Sharp Plasmacluster® Ion Technology has been used in over 80 million products worldwide, including leading automakers to reduce odors and refrigeration appliance manufacturers to help keep food fresher longer. US Patent No. 7854900.
HEPA AIR FILTRATION
It's About the Air You Breathe
Did you know that the EPA warns that the air inside the average home could be up to 5 times more polluted than the air outside? Sharp Air Purifiers combine patented Plasmacluster® Ion technology with True HEPA filtration, for a cleaner, fresher environment.
Pet allergens and tobacco smoke particles are typically around 1.0 micron (mic). The Sharp True HEPA Filters are designed to capture pollutants 1/3 that size - as small as 0.3 microns with up-to 99.97% efficiency
The Sharp True HEPA filters are ideal for removing household allergens and effectively reduces pollen, dust, pet dander, and smoke in your home. True HEPA traps 99.97% of microscopic particles from the air that passes through the filter. This not only includes the airborne pollutants that you can see (PM10), but also the pollutants that you can’t see (PM2.5).
Sharp Air Purifiers are tested by independent laboratories to verify the air-cleaning capability of the filtration system. Each model has its own CADR rating, which indicates the smoke, dust, and pollen removal rate when the air in the room is changed 5 times per hour.
Why Does 0.3 Microns Matter?
A washable pre-filter to capture the larger airborne particles, an activated carbon filter to help reduce odors, and extend the life of the True HEPA filter.
Built to Be Energy-Efficient
Sharp True HEPA air purifiers are ENERGY STAR® rated and highly efficient, so you can enjoy cleaner and fresher air all day and night.
ARB Certified for your protection, Plasmacluster Ion Technology produces almost zero ozone (at less than 0.02 ppm), up to 5X less than the lowest industry and federal safety standards set by the FDA, OSHA, WHO, and NIOSH. Certificates available upon request.
Library Quiet Operation
The air purifier unit has LibraryQuiet™ operation (as quiet as 15 decibels, or the sound of rustling leaves) to blend in with your everyday life and allow for a peaceful night's sleep.
