Panasonic Heating and Cooling Solutions has moved to help limit the side effects of springtime pollens by incorporating its nanoe X Technology within its air conditioner ranges.
Designed to restrict certain pollens and allergens, such as those most common in spring time, it also inhibits certain bacteria and viruses by up to 99.9%.
The technology works by generating hydroxyl radicals (OH) enveloped in a nano-particle of water for cleaner air. The effectiveness of virus/bacteria inhibition is due to a wide OH production area which can generate 4,800 billion, per second. OH oxidises organic particles and bacteria in the atmosphere, effectively inhibiting them from the air, making it safer to breathe. A higher concentration of OH radicals means that there is an even greater reduction in pollutants, for a fresher environment.
This technology works even when the air conditioner is not in heating or cooling operation to remove pollen, pollution, fungi, viruses and even cigarette smoke from the air, for a cost-effective year-round solution. It also reduces odours in the room to limit the propagation of mould and bacteria. nanoe X is also small enough to penetrate clothing, which will also help to inhibit pollen, mould, and odours.
nanoe X comes as standard in Panasonic’s residential Etherea air conditioning range and the floor console units. The technology is also available in Panasonic’s commercial range, as an optional feature in the cassette 90:90 and will be incorporated in several indoor units during the year.
