SHARP, the Indian market leader in innovative air purification devices, announced the world’s first air purifier with mosquito catcher. FP-FM40E is a unique, hyper-efficient air purifier that combines Sharp’s exclusive patented Plasmacluster ion technology and a non-toxic mosquito-catching mechanism to eliminate both micro and macroscopic pollutants present in indoor air.
The state-of-the-art air purifier not only reduces asthma exacerbations due to exposure to airborne allergens, but also traps pesky insects like mosquitoes as a preventive measure from mosquito-borne diseases like Dengue, Chikungunya, and Malaria.The transmission of diseases like dengue requires mosquitoes as vectors; hence the spread of dengue can be limited by reducing mosquito populations with the help of this device.
Commenting on the launch, Mr. Shuvendu Mazumdar, National Manager- SHARP Air Purifier Business said: “At Sharp, we are committed to ensuring a healthy environment through innovative solutions to curtail indoor air pollution. Engineered by industry experts, this one of its kind product combines Sharp’s Plasmacluster technology with an advanced mosquito catching mechanism that offers holistic performance.”
“With monsoon, the mosquito population explodes resulting in mosquito borne illness. FP-FM40Eair purifier can be used as a preventive measure in all Indian households, which not only traps mosquitoes but also sanitizes the air we breathe indoors,” he added.
With its chemical-free 5 step mosquito-catching mechanism, the purifier effectively captures mosquitoes and fruit flies. It boasts a stylish black exterior with a tiny entrance on both sides to entice nearing mosquitos. The UV lights attract mosquitoes which are captured by powerful air suction that traps them on a strong glue sheet.
Using negative ions, Sharp Air Purifiers help to clean and refresh the contaminated indoor air by deactivating mould, viruses, bacteria and neutralizing VOCs and toxic gases.Equipped with true HEPA filter, the purifiers can capture 99.97% of air particles like smoke, dust, and pollen which is as small as 0.03 microns.
