Sharp's FP-A40UW air purifier combines True HEPA filtration to reduce allergens with Sharp’s patented Plasmacluster® Ion technology which attacks germs and odors. The Plasmacluster air purifier helps remove these irritants with an ultra-quiet fan that draws air through a washable pre-filter and a True HEPA filter that removes 99.97% of impurities from the air that passes through it. This filter system plus the revolutionary Plasmacluster Ion Technology for air purifiers makes the air cleaner and fresher smelling. Sharp’s Plasmacluster Ion technology attacks germs and odors at the molecular level. This technology has been proven to reduce certain bacteria, virus, mold, fungus and odors in lab tests.
