SHARP has announced the launch of the world’s first air purifier with mosquito catcher. FP-FM40E is an air purifier that combines Sharp’s patented Plasmacluster ion technology and non-toxic mosquito-catching mechanism to eliminate both micro and macroscopic pollutants present in indoor air.

The 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.

 

With its chemical-free 5 step mosquito-catching mechanism, the purifier effectively captures mosquitoes and fruit flies. It boasts a black exterior with tiny entrance on both sides to entice nearing mosquitos. The UV lights attract mosquitoes which are captured by 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 per cent of air particles like smoke, dust and pollen which is as small as 0.03 microns.

 

Covering an area of up to 300 sq. feet, Sharp FP-FM40E is priced at Rs 26,000 and is available exclusively through the e-commerce website Amazon.
