Plasmacluster Ion Technology

Plasmacluster Ion Technology

The air we breathe is a basic human necessity, playing a vital role in our health and general well-being. However in today's environment, unpolluted,  clean air is scarce. Pollutants such as microbes, germs and airborne viruses dominate. This increases the spread of flu, and other viruses which make us unwell.

Sharp's revolutionary Plasmacluster technology has been proven to be effective in suspending viruses and microbes that contaminate our air, leaving it cleaner and healthier.

Benefits of Plasmacluster Ion Technology

Plasmacluster Ion technology is an original Sharp sanitising technology that purifies the air by emitting positive and negative ions. Plasmacluster Ion technology deactivates suspended airborne mould, viruses, dust mite allergens and bacteria. It attacks a wide range of odours including pet, cooking, rubbish and cigarette smoke.

Freshens the air with negative ions

Using negative ions, Sharp Air Purifiers and Ion Generators help to clean and refresh the air. Sharp's range of Air Purifiers and Ion Generators release negative ions creating a "feel good" atmosphere similar to natural environments such as a rainforest or a waterfall.

Neutralises odour-causing molecules with positive and negative ions.

Plasmacluster Ion technology helps reduce the source of a wide range of unpleasant household odours including cooking, pets, rubbish and cigarette smoke.

Reduces suspended allergens and floating mould spores with positive and negative ions.

Plasmacluster Ions are helpful in deactivating allergens caused by dust mites, as well as deactivating mould spores that can cause mildew in you home. Sharp Air Purifiers and Ion Generators help to improve the quality of the air you breathe.

Reduces suspended viruses with positive and negative ions.

Plasmacluster Ions break down and remove projecting spike-shaped proteins of suspended viruses such as influenza, reducing their effectiveness. 

PCI on Sharp Refrigerators

Incorporating Sharp's one of a kind Plasmacluster technology in our refrigerators helps keep food fresh longer by releasing positive and negative ions. This unique feature also assists in reducing the potency of airborne substances such as bacteria, mould spores and helps eliminate odours as well.

PCI on Sharp Air Purifiers

Sharp Air Purifiers contain a Plasmacluster Ion generator that releases positive and negative ions into the air. The Plasmacluster Ions diffuse through the room, surrounding airborne allergens, bacteria, mould and viruses. The ions then convert the hydrogen molecules on their surface proteins into water.

How it works

Stage 1

Plasmacluster Ions are similar to positive and negative ions found in nature. The ions are surrounded by water molecules and are released into the air.

Stage 2

The ions from hydroxide (OH) radicals are highly oxidising when they adhere to the surfaces of airborne microbes, such as suspended allergens, bacteria, mould and viruses. They remove hydrogen from the surface proteins, breaking them down.

Stage 3

The hydroxide (OH) radicals combine with hydrogen (H) to form water (H20) which is returned to the air.

PCI Performance

Odour Reduction

Plasmacluster ions can reduce common household odours including cigarette smoke, cooking smells and pet odours

Odour Reduction

Reducing Mould Growth

Reducing the mould level in a home minimises its affects on allergies and improve general health.

Reducing Mould Growth

Reducing Static Electricity

Plasmacluster ions reduce static electricity, preventing pollen and airborne dust from clinging to curtains, clothing, and other surfaces.
