The Flash Streamer technology was developed by Daikin in 2004 to perform an oxidative decomposition of harmful substances. The Streamer discharge is a type of plasma discharge featuring an innovative air purification technology that stably generates high-speed electrons. The massive streamer discharge hits viruses, mould, bacteria, allergens and hazardous chemical substances decomposing and fragmenting their surface proteins, which are then destroyed through oxidation, rendering the virus safe. The streamer discharge then breaks down into safe nitrogen and oxygen atoms and water molecules.
Its oxidative decomposition capability is much higher than conventional plasma discharge used in standard technologies, resulting in an oxidative decomposition speed that is nearly 1,000 times greater. Moreover, when combined with air components, these high-speed electrons have a capability for powerful oxidative decomposition that continuously removes odours, bacteria and indoor pollutants such as formaldehyde.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The tests described herein only concern the patented Flash Streamer Technology. The effects of products equipped with Flash Streamer Technology or the effects in actual use environment may differ.
