Deodorise the Air

Deodorising Filter

Filter can be washed with water to restore deodorising power**1. This helps to reduce four major types of odour bases : nitrogen, aldehyde, acid and sulfur components.

**1 Depending on the odour, washing with water may not eliminate it. Restoration of deodorising performance by washing with water gradually declines.

**1 Depending on the odour, washing with water may not eliminate it. Restoration of deodorising performance by washing with water gradually declines.

Deodorising Filter

How Deodorising Power is Restored

As the activated carbon absorbs the odour components into micropore of the filter, it gradually looses the deodorising power. After the filter is washed with water, the odour components are detached from the filter and the deodorising power of the filter is restored.

Effectively Captures Fine Particle

Allergen-Free HEPA Filter

Multi-layered structure of Allergen-Free HEPA Filter for fine dust effectively catches fine particles including dust, cedar pollen and airborne mould. It also suppresses the PM2.5.

Filter Surface Area : Approx. 2.8m²

Large surface area effectively captures dust.

Allergen-Free HEPA Filter

Air Purifier Suppresses Airborne Viruses and Bacteria*

This is the effect on airborne viruses and bacteria after 13 minutes in a 25m² test space, not the proven effect in a space where the filter is actually used. Effects may differ according to conditions and method of use. Tests performed conform to the Japan Electrical Manufacturers’ Association standard (HD-124).

Wide and Speedy Dust Collection

Increased air intake surface area achieved on the back lateral sides. By widely collecting dust from both sides, a 13m² room can be quickly purified.

PM2.5 Sensor

Purifies PM2.5 Particles with a Massive Air Volume – Much Quicker than The Normal Automatic Air Purification Mode

Switches to high-sensitive detection mode and purifies fine dust with max air flow operation*1. HEPA filters enable the collection of fine particles*2 of 0.1µm and larger (0.5µm or larger with the dust sensor detection). Continues super-sensitive patrol operation even after cleaning the air.

*1 Comparison with normal automatic air purification mode. Time required for reducing an initial concentration of approx. 1,000µg/m² to 35µg/m². Normal automatic air purification mode: 38 minutes, PM2.5 sensing automatic operation mode : 20 minutes. Surveyed by Hitachi.

*2 Cigarette smoke.

PM2.5 Sensor

99% of 0.1 to 2.5µm Particles Caught*3— Ready to Remove PM2.5 Particles

New particles entering from outside during ventilation or by other means are not considered here.

PM2.5 is a collective term for particulate matter of 2.5µm or less in diameter. Removal of particulate matter less than 0.1µm has not been verified. Further, not all harmful substances in the air can be removed. Results were obtained in a sealed 32m² space and not in an actual living space.

Skin Moisturising Mode

Room humidity can be increased up to about 60%*. This helps keep your skin moist in the dry season and when using air conditioning.

* Humidifying capability may change due to temperature, humidity and other conditions. The effect differs between individuals. It also differs depending on the season, room temperature and other conditions.

Low Noise Operation

During Silent airflow operation, the noise level is less than 15dB, so it won't disturb you when sleeping.

* Noise level differs depending on the models.

Touch Panel Operation

Touch panel has been incorporated on front glass panel. And clean monitor changes it colour to notify status and blinks when PM2.5 sensor is activated.
