The Sharp KC-860U Plasmacluster Air Purifier with Humidifying Function purifies a room up to 347 square feet. It offers a unique combination of air treatment technologies to make you and your family more comfortable, whatever the season. Bacteria, germs, mold spores, pollen, pet dander, smoke, dust and odors can make breathing harder, especially for asthma and allergy sufferers. Sharp's KC-860U Plasmacluster air purifier helps remove these irritants with an ultra quiet fan that draws air through a 3-stage filter system. This filter system plus the revolutionary Plasmacluster Ion Technology for air purifiers makes the air healthier and cleaner smelling. For an even more comfortable environment, sensors constantly monitor the air quality in your room, adjusting the fan for air purity while providing the optimum humidity level. This combination of features is a smart way to choose cleaner, healthier, more breathable air.
From the Manufacturer
Plasmacluster ions reduce germs, viruses, bacteria, odors, and mold throughout the room.
Traditional filter-based systems rely on air passing through the filter. Plasmacluster ions can spread to every corner of the room to actively clean.
True HEPA filtration captures 99.97% of pollen, dust, pet dander, and smoke particles as small as 0.3 microns.*
*From the air that passes through the filter
Pet allergens and tobacco smoke particles are typically smaller than 1 micron. With True HEPA filtration, more of these particles can be captured.
Four different capacities to cover small bedrooms up to large living rooms!
Plasmacluster ions are proven to significantly reduce bacteria viruses, mold and fungus.
It can be difficult to see what's in your air, since many airborne particles are not visible to the human eye. This air purifier senses & reports your air quality & humidity level, and automatically adjusts operation as needed.
Sharp air purifiers are Energy Star rated and highly efficient, so you don't have to worry about leaving the unit on all the time.
Plasmacluster ions destroy odors at the molecular level, even removing embedded odors in carpeting, drapery, and furniture.
Ionizers add a negative charge to airborne particles which makes them stick to furniture, walls, & floors. Only Plasmacluster ion technology is proven to effectively kill germs, bacteria, viruses, mold, fungus, and odors.
Humidifiers can help relieve sinus issues, dry throat, dry eyes, and chapped lips. They can also help relieve dry skin caused by psoriasis, thyroid disorders, topical medications, and cosmetics.
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.
