Quality air for life

Enriching lives around the world with quality air

Three key elements of quality air design

  1. Control temperature and humidity
  2. Lower indoor contaminant levels by exhausting air and/or supplying fresh, filtered air
  3. Mitigate particulate matter, viruses and odours
18kg

Each of us breathes in 18 kilograms of air a day

We breathe in about 18 kilograms*1 of air a day - enough to fill a sphere 3 meters in diameter. In fact, we breathe in about 15 times more air by weight every day than the food we eat or the water we drink.*2 So, for us to lead a healthy life, the quality of the air we breathe is just as important as the quality of the food and water we consume.

Complete air purification

nanoe™ X purifies your air when you are home, away and even when cooling is off. There is no maintenance required for a nanoe™ X device as nanoe™ X is generated from water in the air, allowing for 24 hour performance. It also has low energy consumption, with a fan mode that runs on only 25W per hour.*3

nanoe™ X

Return to a fresh smelling home every time

Leave nanoe™ mode ON to deodorize, inhibit bacteria and viruses and remove dust particles (PM2.5) while you're away.

The origin of the name nanoe™

1nm is one billionth of one metre. If the size of the Earth were 1m, 1nm would be about the same size as a US dime. The size of nanoe™ particles is 5-20nm. While small, these particles have a big effect. Panasonic’s unique nanoe™ technology involves special expertise at the nanometer level. It deodorizes, inhibits the growth of bacteria, and viruses and is effective in dust removal for a fresher, cleaner indoor environment.

Characteristics and 5 Effects of nanoe™ X

How nanoe™ X works for odour

1

nanoe™ X reliably reaches odours embedded in fibres.

2

OH radicals break down odour-causing substances.

3

Odour is eliminated.*4~11

How nanoe™ X works for allergens

nanoe™ X reliably reaches allergens.

OH radicals denature allergen proteins​.

Allergen is inhibited.*12

How nanoe™ X works for pollen

nanoe™ X reliably reaches pollen​.

OH radicals denature pollen proteins​.

Pollen is inhibited.*21

How nanoe™ X works for hazardous substances

nanoe™ X reliably reaches hazardous substance.

OH radicals denature hazardous substance proteins.

Hazardous substance is inhibited.*22

How nanoe™ X works for skin & hair

Without nanoe™ X = dry skin

1. Moisture escapes and skin dries out.
2. Skin texture deteriorates and corneum sloughs off.

With nanoe™ X = moisturized skin

1. nanoe™ X combines with natural sebum to coat the skin.
2. Leads to smooth, well hydrated skin.*23*24

Without nanoe™ X = frizzy hair

The hair's moisture balance falls, leading to frizzy hair. With difficulty reflecting light, gloss is reduced and texture is grainy.

With nanoe™ X = smooth hair

Helps the hair achieve a proper moisture balance, making for shiny hair that reflects light and allows fingers to be run through it smoothly.*25

 

Eliminates Common Odours*⁴˜¹¹

(Not a result of experiments in an actual use environment)

Types of odours:

  1. Sweat odour
  2. Damp odour
  3. Durian odour
  4. Scalp odour
  5. BBQ odour
  6. Cigarette odour
  7. Garbage odour
  8. Pet odour

nanoe™ X particles, which are smaller than steam particles, penetrate the deepest parts of fibres, allowing for highly effective deodorization.*4~11 OH radicals reach the sources of the odours themselves and suppress them until they are barely noticeable.
