Having good indoor air quality is an important part of living in a healthy home. Lacking it can bring two common health problems to your loved ones: allergy and asthma. Not to mention, more people now prioritize on cleaner air because of the airborne viruses which may harm our family.
With this in mind, Sharp Corporation and Associate Professor Masashi Yamakawa conducted a study to prove how Plasmacluster Ions and Airflow technology effectively collect airborne particles. Masashi Yamakawa from Kyoto Institute of Technology is an expert in the analysis of airborne virus droplets. With his assistance, they confirmed that an air purifier with Plasmacluster ions work much better than the conventional ones.
In this simulation, there’s a comparison between a general air purifier that sends air directly above the product with an air purifier with our proprietary 20° Angled Rear-Directed Airflow. Apart from that, they did an analysis and comparison using an air conditioner equipped with a general filter with high air pass-through efficiency.
The general air purifier releases a direct upward flow that causes the virus droplets to diffuse in several directions. How about the Sharp’s air purifier? It causes the air to circulate so virus particles are effectively captured without being dispersed in space.
The same thing happens with Sharp proprietary airflow air conditioner versus a traditional one. For the regular air conditioner, the airborne virus droplets are carried on air currents and drawn into the air conditioner so they are not captured. These droplets are diffused again into the room on the air flowing out from the air conditioner.
With a Sharp air conditioner, the air is blown upward. When an air purifier is placed directly underneath, an airflow is created that quickly circulates around the room. This process enables airborne virus droplets to be captured effectively.
For almost two decades, Sharp has been working toward achieving comfortable indoor air environments by using Plasma cluster and airflow technologies. Because of that, they have various products that are equipped with these advancements. Here are the latest models with Plasmacluster Ion Technology:
1. Sharp FP-J50P-H Air Purifier – If you’re living in a small condo or house, this is an excellent companion for fresher air. It can cover a 40sqm of room with its high-density PCI generator and fan. No need to worry about high electricity bills because this one comes with an inverter operation. In addition to that, you can control this with your smartphone because of its Smart Operation function through AIoT.
Most importantly, it features Plasmacluster ions which deactivate airborne allergens, viruses and pollutants by using positive and negative ions.
2. Sharp Plasmacluster Ion Electric Fans – As we’re living in a tropical country, electric fans are necessary for every household. Sharp is leveling up your typical electric fan by equipping it with Plasmacluster ion technology to fight off germs, molds, allergens, and viruses. Moreover, this one features an Anti-Overheat Motor for long hours of usage and consumer’s safety. It has a 160 degrees rotation action and three-speed setting. Lastly, Sharp Plasma cluster Ion Electric Fan comes in three different models so you can choose according to your need: Stand Fan, Desk Fan, and a Wall Fan.
