Plasmacluster® Ion Technology

Image Feature

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.

Image Feature

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.

Image Feature

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.

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.

Mold spores are present in both indoor and outdoor air. Reducing the mold level in a home minimizes its effect on allergies.

Image Feature

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.

It's About the Air You Breathe

Image Feature

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.

Image Feature

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.

Image Feature

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).

Image Feature

Independent-Laboratory Certified

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.

Image Feature

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. (P)

Relieve Dry Air Symptoms

Humidifiers can help relieve sinus issues, dry throat, dry eyes and chapped lips. They can also help relieve dry skin caused by psoriasis, thyroid disorders, topical medications and cosmetics. Heaters used in wintertime can lower the humidity level in the air, so having a humidifier is helpful.

Image Feature

Maintains the Ideal Humidity Level

You may not know that keeping a steady humidity level between 40% and 60% in your home is ideal. When your humidity is too low, or too high, you may unintentionally encourage bacteria, virus, mold and dust mite growth! Sharp Plasmacluster ® air purifiers automatically deliver the right humidity level based on your room's temperature, so you never have to worry about setting it or turning it off!

Image Feature

Convenient Humidifying System

The water tank for the built-in humidifier is easily removed from the side of the unit and can be filled at the sink with tap water. The rotating wick draws moisture from the water reservoir and releases it evenly into the airflow. When the water tank is low, an indicator light blinks on the control panel on top of the purifier.

Image Feature

Clean Humidification

Superfine mist leaves floors dry and surfaces residue-free.

Image Feature

Antimicrobial Humidification

When the humidifying function is not in use, the wick remains stationary and is suspended above the water level, allowing for the airflow to thoroughly dry the wick; thus preventing the growth of mold and bacteria.

Image Feature

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.

Image Feature

ARB Certified

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.

Image Feature

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.

Humidification Function adds humidity to the air for improved air quality and maximum comfort, especially in colder weather. It also helps reduce static electricity that results from dry air.

Front Display shows Plasmacluster operation, dust monitor, humidity level, and indicator light to determine when the water tank needs to be refilled.

True HEPA Filter captures 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns that pass through it, including pollen, mold, pet dander and dust. The special Antimicrobial Layer provides extra protection against viruses.

Plasmacluster Technology splits water molecules into positively and negatively charged ions, which spread throughout the room, surrounding airborne particles. This system effectively restores the natural balance of ions in the air, like near a waterfall or just after a thunderstorm. This restored balance helps refresh the air and leaves it cleaner smelling.

Easy Operation with "Instant On" buttons for Clean Air, Clean Air & Humidify and Quick Clean mode.

Clean Sign Indictor shows the level of impurities in the air so it's easy to see the progress as it returns healthier, cleaner air into the room.

Manual Operation lets the user choose among 3 fan speeds, plus Pollen and Quick Clean modes.

Automatic Operation uses the sensor to automatically adjust fan speed for the degree of cleaning required.

Plasmacluster Ion Mode can be switched between Clean Mode / Ion Control Mode and Auto mode automatically. Maintains the natural ion balance in the room.

Library Quiet™ operation is ideal for bedrooms and living rooms. Silent Mode is as quiet as 28 decibels with humidier on, about the volume of rustling leaves. This is one of the quietest Air Purifiers with a HEPA filter available anywhere.

Energy Efficient operation means it's easy on your wallet. With its advanced technologies, it is 35% more energy efficient than standard models, making it ENERGY STAR ® qualified. 1

Ultra Long Life HEPA Filters require changing only once every 5 years 2 so operating costs are low.
