Patented Streamer Discharge Technology


What is the Daikin Streamer Discharge Technology?

“Streamer Discharge” is a type of plasma discharge in which high-speed electrons capable of oxidative decomposition are generated. It has the ability to eliminate bacteria and mould as well as hazardous chemical substances and allergens, etc. Compared to standard plasma discharge (glow discharge), the discharge range of Daikin’s Streamer Discharge is wider, which makes electrons easier to collide with oxygen and nitrogen in the air. This enables high-speed electrons to be generated three dimensionally over a wide area, which results in an oxidative decomposition speed that is over 1000 times greater with the same electrical power. Daikin’s Streamer Discharge technology has proven successful in stably generating high speed electrons, a geat that has been considered difficult up to now.

How the decomposition mechanism of Streamer discharge Technology works

If it were thermal energy, the decomposition strength would be comparable to a heat of approximately 100,000℃1,


  • Mechanism
  • Mechanism
    Massive streamer discharge hits viruses.
  • Mechanism
    Streamer discharge hits viruses and decomposes the surface protein through oxidation.
  • Mechanism
    The protein destroyed through oxidative decomposition gets fragmented and the streamer discharge reverts to safe nitrogen atoms, oxygen atoms, and water molecules.
  • Mechanism
    Surface protein (HA and NA) destroyed by oxidative decomposition.
