Comfortable use of modern kitchen requires the presence of a refrigerator, and in the hot season it literally becomes vital. The huge choice of refrigerators not only does not facilitate, but even complicates the purchase. This article is about one of the largest manufacturers of household appliances, a Japanese corporation. SHARP. It is also worth considering several models of refrigerators of its production.
A bit of history
SHARP was founded in 1912 in Tokyo. The business credo of the corporation "Sincerity and Creativity" - "Honesty and Creativity" speaks quite clearly about its approach to the business. The motto is the appeal to the consumer "Be original", which literally translates as "be original."
The corporation stated that its success is due precisely to following these two principles - honesty towards the user and a creative approach to business. SHARP produced its first refrigerator in 1952 - and since then has held leadership positions, constantly improving and improving the functionality and quality of its products.
During its more than 100-year history, SHARP has been repeatedly called the first to invent innovative technologies. Thanks to the caring attitude both to the customer and to the environment, to the famous Japanese hard work, the approach to work is creative and with a deep sense of responsibility, the company really manages to create products that competitors want to copy.
Features and benefits
Different technologies, invented and patented by the company, give this technique additional unique advantages (compared to traditional refrigerators). These units meet all the requirements of quality and functionality.
Unique technology "Plasmacluster Ion" will provide an opportunity to save a lot of time, allowing you not to lay out products strictly on certain shelves. They will remain fresh everywhere - thanks to the constant process of air purification and the destruction of harmful bacteria. This technology intensively cleans the space, destroying dust, allergens and microbes.
There is also technology "Hybrid Cooling" - thanks to a plate of aluminum attached to the rear wall of the chamber, the fan spreads the cold evenly, constantly maintaining the desired temperature and natural humidity. The hybrid cooling system provides the ability to preserve the natural look and taste of products for a long time. "Hybrid Cooling" provides the ability to store food in the refrigerator, even without packaging - the effect of "weathered" product is excluded.
Another unique invention of the company, an innovative compressor, ensures economical energy consumption and silent operation of the unit. The technology helps to reduce energy consumption by 20% (compared to other refrigerators) and reduces the noise level to 36 decibels. With compressor "J-Tech Inverter" even huge multi-compartment refrigerators will run completely silently.
"AG CU Nano" - a revolutionary development SHARP, active deodorizer that retains bacteria that cause an unpleasant odor in the air stream. It also prevents the mixing of odors of various products and provides fresh air in the refrigerator.
Almost all modern models SHARP created using all the technologies invented and patented by the company, and absolutely all are equipped with the function "No Frost ", which saves users from having to defrost the refrigerator themselves. Refrigerators are collected in different countries, but the quality of this fact does not affect. All enterprises employ highly qualified and certified engineers and technologists.
It is worth explaining some technical characteristics and their designations:
- Division classes by power consumption (energy efficiency from best to lowest) - A ++, A +, A, B, C, D, E, F, G.
- Luggage storage, the so-called zone of freshness ("fresh-zone", "bio-zone", "eco-zone", has a constant temperature around zero), there are two types. The “wet” freshness zone is used for products of plant origin that can be stored without packaging. The "dry" zone is created to preserve meat and dairy products, as well as fish. Store products recommended in packaged form.
- Climate classes - indicate the temperature conditions for operation of the refrigerator. N - normal, works at a room temperature of +16 to +32 C. SN is subnormal, for operation in the temperature range from +10 to 32 C. ST is subtropical, designed to work in humid conditions at temperatures from +18 to + 38 C. T - tropical, suitable for hot and dry climates. This type of refrigerator will work even in heat, when the air temperature reaches up to +43 C.
- Freezer Classes distinguished by numbers or the corresponding number of stars: 1 = -6 C, 2 = -12 C, 3 = -18 C, 4 = -24 C.
- Vacation mode in the refrigerator means energy savings of at least one-third, due to the constant temperature in 15 C.
- "Parental Castle" - The function allows you to lock the control system settings from children.
- "No Frost" - prevents the formation of ice, which frees the user from having to defrost the refrigerator manually.
