Original Vacuum Preservation

A Life Centric Technology
from Japan

Hitachi patented sealed-structure design and
vacuum pump maintain 0.8 atmospheric pressure
and keep away direct cold air.

Vacuum-sealed for Food Freshness

Vacuum Compartment

The secret to longer-lasting freshness is reduced oxygen levels. Hitachi’s original vacuum preservation extracts air to maintain approx. 0.8 atm (atmospheric pressure). The meat, fish and dairy products are kept fresh and nutritious, and ready to cook without defrosting.

Vacuum-sealed for Food Freshness

Nutrition Retention

Stay healthy. A vacuumed environment prevents oxidisation and retains nutrients inside the food.

Quick Seasoning

Quick seasoning is made possible because the compartment removes air from stored food, enabling seasoning to be absorbed at a faster rate. So, with less time required for seasoning and cooking, such as for marinated seasoning or dehydrating the dried items, there’s more time for eating!

Refreshing Technology Refreshing Technology open button

Refreshing Technology Maintains 0.8 atm Vacuum*

Hitachi innovation at its finest and most consistent: the sealed pressure-resistant vacuum realises and maintains the vacuumed environment. A vacuum pump extracts air and reduces oxygen to achieve approx. 0.8 atm (atmospheric pressure) throughout usage.

Refreshing Technology Maintains 0.8 atm Vacuum

* Vacuum means the space where the pressure is lower than the atmospheric pressure. The pressure in the Vacuum Compartment is about 0.8 atm, which is lower than the atmospheric pressure, hence, Hitachi considers this a vacuum.

VIP – Vacuum Insulation Panel Technology

VIP is a thin panel with a very fine glass fibre vacuum inside, giving an extremely high heat insulation performance - much higher than that of Urethane, a conventional insulation material. It prevents external heat from escaping to achieve exceptional energy savings. Cooling retention is 15 hours, with the highest heat insulation performance during power cut.

Cools freezer and refrigerator compartments

INVERTER

Compact but high power inverter compressor capable of providing exceptionally powerful cooling by generating a large volume of chilled air, while adjusting cooling power. Also providing efficient low power cooling with microcomputer control, Eco Thermo Sensor.

ECO THERMO-SENSOR

Dual Fan Cooling

Dual Fan Cooling

It enables independent cooling of the freezer (Approx. -18°C) and refrigerator compartments (Approx. 3°C), something a single fan can't do. Using two fans, it also quickly and effectively circulates the cold air provided by powerful inverter operation.

Powerful Cooling

Even if the ambient temperature reaches as high as 60°C, every corner inside of the refrigerator is still thoroughly cooled.

Powerful Cooling

*Tested by Hitachi. Test conditions: Ambient temperature of 60°C and stable interior conditions without opening or closing the door.

Freezer Retention up to 15 hours

Triple Power Filter

Triple Power Filter removes odour components*1 and removes bacteria 99%.*2

*1: Triple Power Filter that catches and removes 7 odour components (Tested by Hitachi. The type of odours : Methyl Mercaptan, Ammonia, Acetaldehyde, Trimethylamine, Propanal, Hexanal and Acetic Acid).

*2: Thus also provides a sterilising effect. Combining the properties of Activated Carbon, Zeolite and Manganese Oxide (catalyst), the filter greatly reduces the percentage of odours present over time. Testing organisation : Boken Quality Evaluation Institute. Testing method : Film adhesion method (JISZ2801). Name of processing component : Filter. Sterilisation method : Application of oxidation catalyst to filter. Subject : Bacteria trapped in filter. Test results : 99% sterilised after 24 hours, achieved using the filter alone. No effect on the environment and food inside the refrigerator.
