IQAir GC™ Multigas Air Purifier
IQAir’s HyperHEPA filtration technology is the safest, healthiest and most effective way to clean the air. The GC Series particle filters work together to remove more than 99% of all airborne particles (0.3 microns and larger) without using unsafe or unproven technologies such as ozone generation, ionization, or ultraviolet radiation. The micro-charged post-filters in the GC Series systems eliminate any particles that might be released from the carbon and alumina gas, odor, and chemical filtration stage. Why risk your health on air cleaner gimmicks when IQAir’s unique design offers proven protection without harmful byproducts?
The extraordinary performance of the IQAir GC Series begins with the highest quality, exceptionally porous, activated bituminous-coal carbon in its gas-phase filtration cartridges. This is not the lower-cost, high-dust carbon from coconut shells that many air purifiers use. That’s good news for anyone allergic to coconut. Also, IQAir does not use zeolite, another less effective and less expensive filtration medium. The superior activated carbon media in the GC Series is blended with chemisorbers that target volatile organic compounds in the air, including formaldehyde. The IQAir GC Series also features pelletized aluminum oxide. The alumina pellets are impregnated with potassium permanganate, forming a powerful combination to filter a wide spectrum of gases, odors and chemicals.
Ultrafine particles are smaller than 0.1 microns. By sheer number, about 90% of all airborne particles are this size. The primary source of ultrafine particles is combustion from motor vehicles, refineries, industrial plants and even cooking. Viruses are also ultrafine particles. The small size of ultrafine particles enables them to be easily inhaled, deposited into the lungs and absorbed into the blood. They have been linked to heart attacks, strokes, asthma and even cancer.
Cleaner, Quieter, and More Efficient
GC Series air purifiers feature the IQAir New Edition fan – the most powerful fan ever used in a stand-alone air purifier. That exceptional power translates into better air cleaning results. The new three-dimensionally optimized fan design uses state-of-the-art aerodynamics to convert energy into more air and less noise. IQAir systems use the highest quality fan motor available. This fan has an astonishing 780 cfm (1325 m³/h) rating at 2750 rpm (without filters). Because each fan is individually balanced and uses steel ball bearings, it outlasts other fans by years. The IQAir New Edition fan is suspended in a housing unit that isolates the fan from the housing with eight shock absorbers to further reduce noise.
The GC Series features six fan speeds, and streamlined system controls allow users to easily program automatic operation via a day/night timer. This helps cut energy costs and extend filter life – the GC Series air purifier can be programmed to clean the air exactly as needed when needed. Also, the included intelligent filter-life monitor precisely forecasts filter replacement based on actual usage and color-coded lights indicate when it’s time to change each filter.
A sleek and efficient handheld remote control makes it easy to manage an IQAir GC Series air purifier from almost anywhere in the environment. Users can set the fan speed and even timer controls without touching the system itself. When not in use the remote control fits easily in the recesses on the top of the system, where it can be found again quickly when needed.
The built-in guiding handle on top and sturdy casters on the bottom of the HealthPro Series make it simple to roll around the room or house, providing high-performance air purification wherever you need it. When it’s not needed, it’s a breeze to roll your HealthPro Series into a closet or other handy storage area.
The Purest Air Possible
Designed for Full- Spectrum Protection
IQAir GC Series air purifiers are designed to clean the full spectrum of airborne pollutants with the very best filtration technology available at each stage of filtration. Air is drawn into the GC Series air purifier through the bottom of the system by a powerful New Edition IQAir fan. Then the air pulled into the system is sequentially cleaned in a step-by-step process that delivers clean, healthy air. IQAir’s unique no-leakage design prevents air from escaping back into the room without being drawn first through the GC Series filters. The multiple filtration stages include:
- Micro- and nano-particle filtration: The first stage of filtration features a powerful H11 HyperHEPA® pre-filter that eliminates micro- and nano-particles such as allergens, smoke, bacteria and viruses.
- Cartridge-based activated carbon adsorption (Except ChemiSorber model): Eliminates volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which are responsible for odors.
- Cartridge-based chemisorption (MultiGas and ChemiSorber models): Destroys harmful chemicals, such as formaldehyde, by an oxidation process inside chemically active alumina pellets.
- Electrostatically charged fibers: Post-filter sleeves eliminate activated carbon and chemisorption abrasion particles through a charged fiber structure.
Superior Purification Technology
IQAir builds better air purifiers because it uses superior air cleaning technologies:
– We use only the very best and most effective technologies. These are derived from million-dollar installations used in cleanroom, airports and hospitals.
– Unlike many of our competitors, we only use technologies, which produce absolutely no undesirable by-products, such as ozone, chemicals or charged particles.
– We only use air cleaning technologies, which are user friendly and low maintenance, since we recognize that popular high-maintenance technologies, such as electronic or ionic air cleaning, annoy owners and quickly become defective.
Why Choose IQAir?
Easy Filter Replacement
All GC Series air purifiers feature IQAir’s revolutionary modular tower design that snaps open to allow access to all of the system filters in a matter of seconds. By simply releasing the locking arms and sliding the filters out of the frame, almost anyone in the office can replace any of the GC Series filters in moments without special tools or complicated processes. Color-coded lights on the control panel also make it easy to know when each of the filters needs replacing.
Trusted by Hospitals
Hospitals around the world rely on IQAir to help protect staff and patients from infectious diseases like tuberculosis and MRSA. When the dreaded disease SARS began to spread in Hong Kong hospitals in 2004, the Hong Kong Hospital Authority tested dozens of air cleaners. They determined that IQAir made the only room air cleaners suitable to be used in the fight against SARS.
100% Ozone-Free Technology
All IQAir air purifiers are 100% ozone-free. They are certified by the IAACM (International Association of Air Cleaner Manufacturers) to produce absolutely no ozone. Ozone is a lung irritant emitted from ionic and electronic air cleaners. Even small amounts of ozone are undesirable for allergy and asthma sufferers.
40 Year Track Record
In a short-lived world, where companies come and go, IQAir is proud to have stood the test of time. When Klaus Hammes and his brother Manfred introduced the world’s first residential air cleaner in 1963, they pioneered an entire industry. It is with this history in mind and the future at heart, that our family company continues to provide products that are at the cutting edge of air purification.
Made only in Switzerland, IQAir products are designed to provide reliable performance for years to come. By utilizing the best Swiss and German engineers, the world’s best components, and a dedicated team of skilled craftsmen and women at our state-of-the-art Swiss factory, we are regularly able to exceed the expectations of even the most demanding customers.
IQAir individually tests each and every HealthPro Series air purifier at the factory to ensure that its performance meets our strict specifications. We use an electronic laser particle counter to verify that your HyperHEPA filtration is meeting our exacting standards in reality, not just theory. We test total system efficiency – the actual air coming out of the outlet. If the system is not delivering 99.97% cleaner air or better, we don’t ship it. Period. The results of the tests are detailed in a hand-signed Certificate of Performance, which is shipped in the box with every HealthPro system.
