Sharp introduces two new humidifying air purifiers in five variations

Sharp Electronics (Europe) GmbH : 07 January, 2007  (Technical Article)
Sharp Corporation will introduce into the Japanese market two new humidifying air purifiers in five model variations that powerfully remove airborne household dust, pet odors and other absorbed odors using a full-fledged humidifying function combined with Plasmacluster Ions.
Using the effects of Humidifying + Plasmacluster Ions, these models achieve approximately double the air purifying power, 3.5 times the static electricity removal power, and 3 times the odor removal power compared to previous models, quickly removing drifting house dust and eliminating odors hanging in the air such as pet smells and odors clinging to curtains. In addition, the industry's highest humidifying capacity of 600 mL/hour creates a pleasantly moist environment at 60% humidity, protecting the nose and throat from dryness, as well as inhibiting the activity of viruses through the action of Plasmacluster Ions. Plus, electricity costs are only about one-fifth (640 yen annually) of using separate air purifier and humidifier units.

Demand for humidifiers is increasing as consumers seek a means to prevent common colds and dryness during the winter season resulting from higher use of forced-air heating. In particular, individuals suffering from allergies desire both air purifying functions and humidifying functions. These new models were developed in response to such trends. In the future, Sharp will continue to offer a wide range of models designed to improve the indoor air environment.

Major Features

1. Powerful “Humidifying + Plasmacluster Ions” function decomposes airborne microorganisms and quickly removes house dust floating in the air.
1) Decomposes and inactivates indoor airborne bacteria with approximately twice the air purifying power as previous models.
2) Neutralizes static electricity generated when the air is dry with approximately 3.5 times the power of previous models, preventing house dust from being stirred up and drifting in the air.
3) Plasmacluster Ions prevent the concentration of airborne allergenic substances from increasing in living spaces.

2. Powerful “Humidifying + Plasmacluster Ions” function deodorizes living spaces, eliminating odors ranging from bothersome smells such as pet odors, to unpleasant odors clinging to curtains and upholstery.
3. Provides comfortable, pleasantly moist air at 60% humidity based on a humidifying capacity of 600 mL/hour, the industry's highest, and an air duct control system using the industry's first Auto-Damper Mechanism. This feature prevents drying of the throat, nose and skin while powerful Plasmacluster Ions inactivate viruses.
4. Even with humidifying and air purification running at the same time, annual electricity costs are only about 640 yen (KC-51C1).
