Hitachi’s latest 550 litre stainless steel refrigerator (R550ET5X – $1,799 RRP) incorporates ‘triple clean’ technology which the company says is designed to keep food fresher and tastier for longer.

Triple clean technology combines a nano-titanium filter, a negative-ion generator, and a multi-flow system. Hitachi’s negative ion generator and nano-titanium filter work together to neutralise bacteria and odours which are commonly found in fridges. Hitachi says they help food keep its original flavour and texture for longer.

 The negative ion generator produces negative ions that travel through the refrigerator absorbing bacteria and odours and suppressing bacteria growth. The antibacterial nano-titanium filtration system captures and eliminates bacteria and odours to the scale of five nanometres through filtration in the air canal of the fridge wall. As well as trapping and preventing up to 99% of the particles from travelling through the filter, the nano-titanium filtration system also keeps fresh, purified air circulating throughout the fridge.  

Another technology inside this fridge is Hitachi’s multi flow system which circulates clean air to every corner, helping maintain consistent temperature and reducing food wastage.
