Clear the air

Clear the air

With the latest air conditioners from Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, you can cool your home while MHI’s Allergen Clear Filter inactivates SARS-CoV-2 particles.


Your air-conditioning system cools your home, but did you know that it can also filter out harmful allergens and viruses?

The latest air-conditioners from Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) feature the Allergen Clear Filter, designed to improve air quality. The filter captures a range of germs, allergens and viruses associated with serious health complications. This technology suppresses harmful particles, thanks to the use of an enzyme-urea compound.



New research from MHI confirmed that the Allergen Clear Filter’s unique air purification technology is effective at inactivating SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Researchers at the Japan Textile Products Quality and Technology Center (Q-TEC) inoculated the air purification filter with a viral fluid containing SARS-CoV-2 and left it to rest at 35ºC. One hour later, the virus was found to have been rendered 99.998% inactive. The Allergen Clear filter is available as an optional item and can be purchased for $15 per piece at KM Marketing Pte Ltd. It is compatible for use with most wall-mounted FCU models currently on sale. MHI has also introduced its Diamond series of air-conditioning units with several key features, including quiet and long-reach airflow, thanks to Jet Air Technology; 3D Auto Technology Vertical and Horizontal, which enables airflow in eight directions for faster and more effective cooling; Clean Air Technology, to inactivate allergens; Fuzzy Auto Operation, to help save energy; and Comfort and Convenience, which allows for high-power operation and silent operation.
