Sharp Plasmacluster® Air Purifier with Humidifying Function for Medium Rooms (KC850U)
The Sharp KC850U Plasmacluster Ion Air Purifier with True HEPA Filtration and Humidification offers a unique combination of air treatment technologies and a one-touch automatic air quality control system to make you and your family more comfortable all year round. The automatic air quality control system of this medium-sized room humidifying air purifier uses sensors to constantly monitor the air quality in your room, adjusting for air purity and optimum humidity level, and will also indicate when filters should be cleaned.
The KC850U helps remove pollutants and common allergens such as pollen, dust, pet dander, and smoke with an ultra-quiet fan that draws air through a three-stage filter system including a permanent micro-mesh pre-filter, washable activated carbon filter, and a 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 KC850U medium room air purifier with humidifying function also reduces germs, bacteria, viruses, odors, mold, and fungus by using patented Plasmacluster Ion Technology. This technology disperses positively and negatively charged ions throughout the room, which safely break down microorganisms and odors – even those trapped in fabric, carpeting, and drapery! With its Plasmacluster Ion Technology, the KC850U air purifier is an ideal solution for pet owners, smokers, allergy sufferers, and asthmatics.
When used in humidify mode, the unit can help relieve congestion, cough, and dry and swollen nasal passages. 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 indicator light blinks on the control panel when the tank is low. It is best used in a medium-sized bedroom, living room, study, or exercise room. 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.
In addition to auto mode, there are 3 manual fan speeds. The Dust, Odor, and Humidity sensors are always monitoring the quality of the air in your room, and the combination displays on the front panel let you check your air quality at a glance. In AUTO mode, the KC850U uses the sensors to automatically react and adjust the fan speed and humidity levels for optimal performance.
The unit has LibraryQuiet™ operation (as quiet as 19 decibels, or the sound of rustling leaves), includes long-life True HEPA filters that last up to 5 years, and is ENERGY STAR® rated, so you can run the unit continuously while saving money and energy.
