Sharp Air Purifiers and Electric Fans with Plasmacluster Ion Technology, Officially Announced!

Having good indoor air quality is important in every home, especially during this time of pandemic. Without out, common health problems, such as allergy and asthma, may arise

Breathing quality air can result in a higher quality of life, which translates to improved productivity at work, more restful sleep, enhancement of health, and greater comfort in general.

Usually, allergens and other airborne particles adversely affect the quality of air in our living spaces. Hence, managing or removing them should be a priority in every home.

With this in mind, Sharp Corporation and Associate Professor Masashi Yamakawa recently conducted a study to prove how Sharp's enhanced Plasmacluster Ion and Airflow Technology effectively collect airborne particles for better air purification.

Masashi Yamakawa from the Kyoto Institute of Technology is an expert in the analysis of airborne virus droplets. With his assistance, Sharp confirmed that an air purifier with Plasmacluster Ions works much better than the conventional ones.

In this simulation, they utilized Sharp’s proprietary airflow air conditioner and an air purifier with our proprietary 20° Angled Rear-Directed Airflow. After that, they examined the effects of airflow from air conditioners and air purifiers on virus droplets in living spaces.

They also calculated the speed and direction of the airflow of air conditioners and air purifiers and analyzed its movement in a living space under simulated usage. Yamakawa analyzed the movement (collection to equipment, adhesion to the surroundings) when virus droplets were released. Here’s a model of Sharp’s simulation together with Professor Yamakawa’s analysis.

* For airborne virus droplets, suspended particles are shown in red and adhering particles are shown in blue.

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 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 Plasmacluster and airflow technologies. Because of that, they have various products that are equipped with these advancements. Here are the latest appliances with Plasmacluster Ion Technology.

Sharp Air Purifier

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.
