SHARP FP-J60M DETAILED REVIEW OF THE

Sharp launched its J series of air purifiers in India this year and we received the FP-J60M for review. The company’s air purification solutions are known thanks to its exclusive Plasmacluster technology, which is used in most devices. However, reducing air pollution in Delhi is a difficult task, especially during the Diwali season. While the J60M is equipped with Plasmacluster technology and has a three-step air filtration method, our verification process puts the device to the test to accurately assess the effectiveness of the air purifier. The device Won our Zero1 award and only the Blueair Classic 280i (Test) is the closest competitor we reviewed. Let’s look at how the device works.

BUILD AND DESIGN

We have reviewed many air purifiers and the common theme is either a box type or a tower Design. These two types of models can have a lot of space in your house pig and sometimes, don’t exactly mix with the decor. The Sharp FP-J60M can also be considered a tower-like design and does not really hide when placed in a room. However, these two factors play a role in that the air purifier does not take up too much space with a relatively small footprint and its features such as the top panel, neon light and the sharp display (pun intended) on the front contribute to its aesthetics.

The J60M weighs 10.3 kg and while some other air purifiers, which weigh about the same weight, are equipped with wheels, the Sharp Air Purifier does not offer such comfort. However, on the back there are two notch-shaped cavities, designed to make it easier to move the device around your home. As we noted in our previous reviews, the design of an air purifier plays an important role in the circulation of clean air in a room, and the design Sharp uses in this air purifier is called a 20-degree airflow. The outlet of the J60M is located at the top and is characterized by a slightly curved design. The device should be kept at a certain distance from the wall, so that the air is reflected into it in order to distribute evenly throughout the room.

While the main air outlet for expelling purified air is at the top, there is a secondary air outlet at the front. Behind this ventilation is Plasmacluster technology, which produces a “plasma blow”, which is essentially an explosion of positive and negative ions. Unlike other ionization processes, Sharp air purifiers do not produce ozone. However, in the performance section we will consider the Plasmacluster Technology and its operation in more detail.

Transformed communities

Most air purifiers simply use mechanical means for air filtration, which means they have a HEPA filter to trap particles in the air. However, some companies use additional Technology to improve the filtration process. Sharp is one such manufacturer, as is Blueair. The Sharp J60M is equipped with two main filters and a pre-filter that captures larger particles, allowing subsequent filters to work more efficiently and for longer. The two main filters are the FIRST an activated carbon filter that Sharp calls a deodorizing filter and the second a class H-14 HEPA filter. the placement of the filter is also correct, since a carbon filter has a longer service life and should ideally be placed in front of the HEPA filter.

As mentioned above, the device is also equipped with a pre-filter attached to the back of the device. The air inlet itself is the prefilter, which is both a Pro and a Con.The aspirated air is pre-filtered at the intake port, which means that the interior of the device remains relatively clean. However, if the larger particles accumulate in the back and can be accidentally released into the atmosphere when trying to clean the air purifier or lift it to move around the house. Be careful and clean the pre-filter every two weeks or earlier, depending on the pollution near you.

Sharp air purifier electrostatic HEPA filter is based on Japanese standard JEM1467. This standard allows for filtration efficiency and Class H-14 is designed to retain more than 99.97% of trapped particles. We will discuss his performance in the next section. However, before continuing, note that a HEPA filter darkens after use, but unlike a pre-filter, it should never be washed. In addition, Sharp suggests that the filter should be exposed to sunlight for three to four hours at least once every 45 days. This process actually applies to most mechanical filters, as they can produce a certain odor after a while due to the trapped particles.

Sharp claims that the filters can last a year, or about 8760 hours. The number of hours it will take naturally varies depending on the degree of pollution in an area where the device is used. In addition, when replacing filters, it is necessary to spend, which is reasonable considering the number of other air purifiers that have to replace their filter every six months.
