Plasmacluster Ion Control
The unit controls the ratio of negative ions
and positive ions depending on the condition of the room.
• Clean Mode
Approximately the same numbers of positive and negative ions are discharged.
This mode is effective for reducing some
airborne mold.
• Ion Control Mode
Plenty of negative ions exist in natural
surroundings such as waterfalls or forests.
In this mode, negative ions will be released in an increased rate, in order to
bring the room air close to this natural
environment.
• AUTO Plasmacluster Ion Mode
The unit will switch between Clean Mode
and Ion Control Mode automatically depending on the amount of impurities in the
air detected by the dust and odor sensors.
• Filters
1) Pre-Filter
It collects large particles.
2) Washable Active Carbon Filter
Its deodorizing performance can be
maintained by washing.
3) HEPA (High Efficiency
Particulate Air) Filter with
Microbial Control Filter
High-efficiency particle collection including pollen and dust.

period in the same location, use a vinyl sheet, etc., to prevent the wall from becoming dirty. In addition, periodically clean the wall, etc.
FILTER GUIDELINES
• Follow the instructions in this manual for correct care and maintenance of the filters.
HOW SHARP AIR PURIFIER WORKS
An air purifier draws in room air from its air intake, lets the air pass through an Active Carbon Filter
(Deodorizing Filter) and a HEPA Filter (dust collection filter) inside of the unit, then discharges the air
from its air outlet. The air purifier repeats this process by moving its internal fan.
As air passes through, the HEPA Filter can remove dust particles. The Active Carbon Filter gradually
absorbs odor elements as they repeatedly pass through the filter.
(Odor elements are absorbed by HEPA Filter as well.)
Some odor ingredients absorbed by the filters may become separated and may be discharged through
the air outlet and result in additional odor. Depending on the usage environment, this odor may become
strong in a shorter period than expected.
In this case, purchase the optional replacement filter kit FZ-440SEF.
NOTE
• The air purifier is designed to remove
air-suspended dust and odor, but not
harmful gases (for example, carbon
monoxide contained in cigarette
smoke). If the odor sources still exist,
it cannot completely remove the odor.
(for example, odors from construction
materials and pet odors).
• It is suggested to open the window a
bit when you are smoking in order to
facilitate ventilation.
