The Sharp FPF50UW Plasmacluster Ion Air Purifier with True HEPA Filtration is ideal for small rooms in your home. This air purifier model effectively reduces pollen, dust, pet dander, smoke, germs, bacteria, viruses, odors, mold, and fungus in your living space. There is a dual stage filter system including an activated carbon filter and long-life True HEPA filter, which captures 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns from the air that passes through it.
The Sharp FPF50UW air purifier disperses positively and negatively charged ions throughout the room, safely breaking down microorganisms and odors trapped in fabric, carpeting, and drapery. An ideal solution for pet owners, allergy sufferers, asthmatics, and smokers, this air purifier works best in smaller sized bedrooms, living rooms, studies, and exercise rooms. Sharp's Plasmacluster Ion Technology Air Purifier is not only ARB Certified. It also produces 5X less ozone (at less than .001 ppm) than the lowest industry and federal standards set by the FDA, OSHA, and NIOSH.
Plasmacluster Ion Technology has proven effective in reducing certain viruses, including MS2 (Influenza viral stimulant), bacteria, including E-Coli Staphylococcus epidermidis and Serratia, molds, and funguses, including Aspergillus Niger, and certain odors that conventional filters don't reach, like odors in upholstery and drapery. 17 laboratories have tested Plasmacluster Ion Technology in the USA, UK, Germany, Japan, South Korea, China, and Vietnam.
The triple filtration system cleans the air that passes through the filter in three ways. The washable, microscreen pre-filter traps dust and other large airborne particles. The activated carbon deodorizing filter helps remove most odors. Finally, the True HEPA filter effectively removes 99.97% of particles from 0.3 microns and larger.
In Auto Mode, the fan speed is automatically adjusted depending on the amount of impurities in the air. The sensors detect certain pollutants for efficient air purification. Quick Clean mode releases high-density Plasmacluster Ion. Control Panel lights can be dimmed or turned off, dust indicator lights on the control panel let you check your air quality at a glance. Set the Sharp FPF50UW unit's fan to low speed for Library Quiet™ operation at 29db for better sleeping conditions. This air purifier includes long-life True HEPA filters that last up to 2 years and is ENERGY STAR® rated, so you can run the unit continuously while saving money and energy.
Advanced Technology for Truly Clean Air
Sharp's patented Plasmacluster® Ion Technology eliminates 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.
Almost Perfect Allergen Removal
True HEPA filtration is ideal for removing common household allergens such as dust, pollen, pet dander, and smoke from the air.
The Sharp FPF50UW air purifier unit has LibraryQuiet™ operation (as quiet as 29 decibels, or the sound of rustling leaves) and is ENERGY STAR® rated, so you can run the unit continuously while saving money and energy.
