With the pandemic forcing the world to adapt to a new normal, the need for a secure, safe, and healthy indoor environment has gotten a new definition. To keep the goodness consistent in the consumers’ lives, Daikin’s Streamer Technology has hopped onto another ladder of success.
Daikin Industries, Ltd., in cooperation with Professor Shigeru Kyuwa, Department of Biomedical Science, the University of Tokyo, and a group of research professors led by Professor Shigeru Morikawa, Department of Microbiology, Okayama University of Science conducted an experiment, wherein they irradiated the viruses for three hours with Streamer discharge. The results of the experiment were as follows:
  • Irradiation with Streamer discharge for one hour inactivated 93.6% of coronavirus (SAR-CoV-2) and 91.8% of mouse hepatitis virus A59 (MHV-A59)
  • Irradiation with Streamer discharge for three hours inactivated more than 99.9% of coronavirus (SARS- CoV-2) and mouse hepatitis virus A59 (MHV-A59)
Streamer discharge’s oxidative decomposition capability is much greater than that of conventional plasma discharge (glow discharge). When combined with air components, these high-speed electrons have a capability for powerful oxidative decomposition that continuously removes odors, bacteria, and indoor air pollutants such as formaldehyde.
As the Covid-19 outbreak continues to affect our daily lives, many of us have opted to stay at home to minimise the risk of catching the disease. With Daikin’s Streamer Discharge Technology, keep yourself and your loved ones safe indoors.
This demonstration shows the results of a device that generated Streamer discharge under test conditions and does not indicate the effectiveness of an actual Streamer product in use under actual conditions (living space).
