Sharp Cube Purifier

Sharp recently launched its latest Cube Air Purifier in Singapore to keep spaces at home safe and free from viruses and bacteria. It’s small and compact, 90mm x 90mm x 95mm, this cube air purifier fits in perfectly into study tables, small closets, shoe cabinets and other personal spaces. Sharp’s Plasmacluster™ Technology has proven effective in fighting the airborne novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) [1].

Benefits of Sharp Cube Purifier

What are the benefits of the Sharp Cube Purifier and what are the tests that have been done to prove its effectiveness? Here are the list of the benefits of the Sharp Cube Purifier and the tests completed.

Removal of Airborne Mold

  • Tested by: Ishikawa Health Service Association
  • Test method: Plasmacluster air conditioners were operated in test spaces of 55 m³ (Plasmacluster 25000), and 31 m³ (Plasmacluster 7000). Airborne mold was measured with an air sampler.
  • Test result: 99% reduction in approx. 83 to 635 minutes in a testing space of approx. 31m3 to 55 m3.

Reducing Growth of Adhering Mold

  • Tested by: Japan Food Research Laboratories
  • Test method: Emission of Plasmacluster™ ions with vinyl chloride plate with adhering mold placed in a testing space. Comparison of mold growth area with reference to the JISZ2911 standard.
  • Test result: Limitation of growth after 8 days in a testing space of approx. 20m3

Suppressing the Activity of Airborne Viruses

  • Tested by: Pasteur Institute in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
  • Test method: According to Japan Electrical Manufacturer’s Association standards (JEM1467), levitate viruses in test space and releases Plasmacluster™ ions. Collect and measure virus removal rate in air.
  • Test result: 99% reduction after 18 minutes in an airtight testing space of approx. 25m3

Suppressing the Activity of Adhering Viruses

  • Tested by: Shokukanken Inc.
  • Test method: A gauze cloth with virus attached is suspended in the test space, and Plasmacluster™ ions are released. After a certain period of time, collect the gauze cloth and measure the virus removal rate.
  • Test result: 99% reduction in approximately 7.5 to 10 hours in an airtight testing space of approx. 25m3

Suppressing the Activity of Airborne Bacteria

  • Tested by: Japan Food Research Laboratories
  • Test method: A performance evaluation test was conducted according to voluntary standards (HD-131) of the Japan Electrical Manufacturers’ Association and releasing Plasmacluster™ ions. Collect and measure the removal rate in air flow.
  • Test result: 99% reduction in approximately 14 minutes in a testing space of approx. 25m3

Suppressing the Activity of Airborne Allergens from Dust Mite Faeces and Remains

  • Tested by: ITEA Inc.
  • Test method: levitate mite allergen in the test room, releasing Plasmacluster™ ions, and by ELISA technique, to measure the suppression rate of allergic substances in air at the fixed point of about 70mm from the outlet of the ion generator.
  • Test result: 99% reduction in approximately 14 minutes in a testing space of approx. 25m3

Reducing Static Electricity

  • Tested by: Sharp
  • Test method: Measurement of time required for a 5 kV charged metal sensing plate to decrease to 0.5kV when irradiated with Plasmacluster™ ions (tested with reference to JIS TR C 0027-1)
  • Test result: 5kV declines to 0.5kV in approximately 80 seconds in a testing space of approximately 55m3.

Breakdown and Elimination of Clinging Odours

  • Tested by: Sharp
  • Test method: The effectiveness of deodorizing a cloth swatch impregnated with cigarette odour components and irradiated with Plasmacluster™ ions was evaluated by using the six-level odour intensity indication method.
  • Test result: Breakdown and elimination in approximately after 55 minutes in a testing space of approximately 41m3.
