CleanZone® 5000 Series

Ultimate performance.

More air, more filtration, minimal noise.

Ultimate performance.

Fine and ultrafine particles on IQAir filter fibers.

Proven performance against ultrafine particles

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.

Manufacturers of ordinary air filtration systems claim only that their systems filter particles larger than 0.3 microns. IQAir is different. IQAir’s HyperHEPA filtration is proven and certified to filter up to 99.5% of all particles down to 0.003 microns – the smallest particles that exist. Independent testing by laboratories and government agencies verifies the effectiveness of IQAir technology against ultrafine particles. When it comes to protection against ultrafine particulates, IQAir is the proven choice.

Three models

The main filter module of the CleanZone 5000 can be individually configured for specific pollutants in any commercial environment. The base models available for particle, gas, chemical and odor control include:


CleanZone 5100: For maximum reduction of particulate matter and microorganisms, this system combines MERV 16 pre-filtration with a HyperHEPA 700 filter drum for ultimate particle control.

CleanZone 5200: For maximum reduction of gases, odors and particulate matter (including microorganisms), the 5200 features up to 158 pounds of gas and odor filtration media plus exceptional particle control with MERV 16 pre-filtration and class H11 post-filter sleeves.

CleanZone 5300: For full-spectrum reduction of gases, odors, particles and microorganisms, the main filter module of this model includes up to 92 pounds of gas and odor filtration media, plus a HyperHEPA 300 filter drum for extraordinary particle control.

Advanced particle filtration

IQAir CleanZone 5000 Series air purifiers combine powerful, certified MERV 16 pre-filtration with up to 301 square feet (surface area) of IQAir’s HyperHEPA filtration media. HyperHEPA is the only air cleaning technology tested and certified to effectively filter harmful ultrafine pollution particles down to 0.003 microns in size with an efficiency of 99.5%. These tiny particles are 100 times smaller than what is achieved with ordinary air filtration technology and up to 10 times smaller than a typical virus. At the pre-filtration stage, The CleanZone 5000’s MERV 16 rating is the highest certification given to an air filter by ASHRAE (the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers). The MERV 16 pre-filter removes more than 95% of all particles (0.3 microns and larger), including 85% of all particles down to 0.003 microns, before air is moved through additional HyperHEPA particle filtration or gas and odor filter cartridges.

Best media, superior filtration

The amazing performance of the CleanZone 5200 and 5300 models begins with the highest-quality, exceptionally porous activated bituminous-coal carbon in the 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 if you're allergic to coconut. IQAir does not use zeolite, another less effective and less expensive filtration medium. The superior activated carbon in the CleanZone 5000 models with gas and odor filtration is blended with chemisorbers that target other volatile organic compounds in the air, including formaldehyde. In some configurations, IQAir activated carbon is complemented by 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.

Multiple configurations

With three models and 10 optional configurations, the CleanZone 5000 offers a performance combination for almost every air quality problem. The CleanZone 5100 is equipped with the IQAir HyperHEPA 700 filter drum for maximum filtration efficiency of fine and ultrafine particles. The CleanZone 5200 is optimized for gas-phase pollution treatment, with 12 GCXL/S cartridges in six available configurations:

  • MultiGas – for volatile organic compounds and many inorganic compounds
  • VOC – for volatile organic compounds, hydrocarbons and solvents
  • ChemiSorber – for inorganic compounds and some organic compounds (e.g., formaldehyde and sulfur dioxide)
  • AM (ammonia) – for ammonia and amines
  • AcidPro – for acids such as hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide, chlorine and sulfuric acid
  • Hg (mercury) – for mercury vapors

The CleanZone 5300 includes a HyperHEPA 300 filter drum and is available in four gas-phase configurations: MultiGas, VOC, ChemiSorber and AM (ammonia).

Quietest in its class

Despite its high volume of airflow, the CleanZone 5000 is remarkably quieter than any other air purifier in its class. The high-performance, electronically commutated, maintenance-free IQAir fan pushes air quietly and efficiently through all filter figurations. The fan is fully isolated in a special fan housing that cuts noise to a minimum while allowing air to flow generously and powerfully through the system at all 10 fan speeds.

High volume, high efficiency

IQAir CleanZone 5000 Series moves more air (up to 1412 cfm) through more high-performance air filtration media than any other IQAir stand-alone air purifier, supplying even large environments with clean, medical-grade air. This extraordinary capacity is made possible by integrating a powerful fan into every CleanZone 5000 model. The fan is powerful enough to move large volumes of air through HyperHEPA particle filters and broad-spectrum gas and odor filters, depending on the model.
