Unique Features

The Sharp FP-J60M-W has four unique features, two of which are:

SPOT Mode

When the High-Density Plasmacluster Technology is used in SPOT Mode of the Sharp FP-J60M-W air purifier, the harmful substances which tend to accumulate at a lower height like furnishings, carpets etc., are removed.

These are areas where children are most likely to be exposed. SPOT Mode facilitates quick removal of VOCs, contaminants and static charges and provides sterilised air for the user.

Light Sensor

Bright lights can be troublesome to the users when they are sleeping in a dark room.

The SHARP FP-J60M-W air purifier comes with a super-sensitive light sensor panel placed in the interactive panel, which ensures that panel lights are switched off as soon as room lights are turned off, limiting light disturbance at night.

 

What All Impurities Sharp FP-J60M-W Removes

The air purifier can remove physical impurities like:

  • Tree pollen
  • Grass pollen
  • Dust
  • Pet dander
  • Pet hair
  • Dust mites remains

The HEPA filter used in this product has an effective filtration for particles up to the size of 0.3 microns with an efficiency of 99.97% and so cannot kill viruses as they are smaller in size (around 0.1 microns)

However, the company claims that the plasmacluster technology used in their air purifiers can kill viruses like H1N1.

The Sharp FP-J60M-W contains a three-stage filtration system consisting of:

  1. Pre-Filter: The air purifier has a washable PM10 Pre-Filter. Indoor pollutants such as house dust, dander and coarse dust up to 10 microns can be trapped and washed from the pre-filter without loading the HEPA Filter.
  2. Active Carbon Filter: this deodorising filter can absorb cigarette odour, pet odour, cooking odour and many other common household odours.
  3. HEPA Filter: This H 14 True HEPA Filter traps 99.97% of microscopic particles as small as 0.3 microns found in the air.

The air purifier showcases a High-Density Plasmacluster Technology with a True HEPA and Active Carbon filters which emit charged ions into the air in the room to more effectively remove contaminants and odours than simple filtration processes alone.

 

Filter Change, Repairs & Warranty

More details about filter change, repair and warranty on the Sharp FP-J60M-W are:

Filter Change Requirements

The filter layers may naturally darken due to dust, smoke, etc., getting trapped in them.

The filters may sometimes produce odour and may need to be exposed to bright sunlight for 3 to 4 hours at least once in 45 days.

The HEPA filter life depends on the nature of the indoor environment and the duration of usage. The HEPA filters must never be washed.

The direction of the filters must be checked when placing them into their frames.

The filters need to be replaced when the air outflow drops by 50%-60% when compared to the initial days of the new air purifier usage.

Repairs and Warranty

As a part of their global commitment, Sharp confirms that they will supply spares and consumables (all replacement filters) for five years after the product is discontinued in the country.

The air purifier comes with a one year warranty with onsite service.
