Mitsubishi Electric developed Plasma Quad Connect, a bolt-on air purifying device for existing air conditioning units, capable of neutralising indoor pollutants, including inhibiting SARS-CoV-2.
The air purifying device is compatible with new and existing installations of Mitsubishi’s M Series, Mr Slim and City Multi indoor units. It is said to significantly improve indoor air quality by neutralising viruses, bacteria, allergens, microscopic particles (PM 2.5), dust and mould.
Based on tests conducted at the Microbial Testing Laboratory, Japan Textile Quality and Technology Centre in Kobe, the technology can restrain 99.8% of SARS-CoV-2.
For wall-mount units, the Plasma Quad Connect can be installed onto a metal backplate above the unit. On ducted units, the Plasma Quad Connect slides into a metal fitment, which is screwed, onto the back of the ducted unit. With cassette units, it is placed in a casement inside the grille.
