Critical features for maximum control.
The CleanZone Hood is as sophisticated as it is powerful.
The IQAir CleanZone Hood is small enough and light enough that it can easily be transported to various locations within a cleanroom or other critical environment. The sturdy stand is quickly removed and set at the top of the system for transport. In this way, the CleanZone Hood can serve multiple workstations as needed, providing medical-grade air whenever and wherever it's required. The CleanZone Hood also includes a detachable power cable and easy USB interface access.
3D UltraSeal™ eliminates leakage
The efficiency stated for most air cleaners is purely theoretical. Internal leakage drastically reduces the actual efficiency of most air cleaners. IQAir systems feature patented triple sealing technology. First, a unique process ensures that the filter media is 100 percent sealed in the filter frame. Second, our patented 3D UltraSeal™ ensures perfect knife-edge-in-groove sealing between filter frame and housing. Third, individual seals on each housing module ensure an airtight housing. As a result, IQAir systems have a total system efficiency that is higher than the theoretical efficiency of conventional air cleaners.
Advanced IQAir HyperHEPA® filter design in the CleanZone Hood allows air to pass through the filter microfibers quietly and efficiently, maximizing both airflow and filter efficiency. This efficient airflow reduces noise in and around the system, making the CleanZone Hood the quietest tabletop high-performance air filtration system available. The CleanZone Hood also features IQAir’s advanced aerodynamic fan design and unique fan mounting system that reduces noise and vibration. As a result, the CleanZone Hood functions quietly and efficiently all day long, without adding significant noise that could distract from the sensitive work being performed in a critical environment.
100% Healthy Technology
IQAir’s HyperHEPA filtration technology is the safest, healthiest and most effective way to clean the air. The IQAir CleanZone Hood particle filters work together to remove more than 99.97% of all airborne particles (0.3 microns and larger) without using unsafe or unproven technologies such as ozone generation, ionization or ultraviolet radiation. This is especially important when you consider the many hours a day that critical-environment workers spend in close proximity to a tabletop air filtration system. IQAir's unique design offers proven protection with absolutely no harmful byproducts.
The CleanZone Hood control panel allows users to easily control fan speeds and airflow as well as to monitor filter life. The system can be operated at six different fan speeds, providing exactly the right amount of medical-grade air needed for any procedure or process. An intelligent filter-life monitor on the control panel precisely forecasts filter replacement based on actual usage and color-coded lights indicate when it's time to change each filter.

smallest airborne particles
of all airborne
Viruses: 0.005 – 0.3 microns
Like bacteria, viruses are organisms that spread airborne diseases as mild as the common cold and as serious as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) through coughs, sneezes and improperly maintained ventilation systems.
Tobacco Smoke: 0.01 – 1 micron
Sidestream smoke has higher concentrations of cancer-causing agents (carcinogens) than mainstream smoke. And, it has smaller particles than mainstream smoke, which make their way into the lungs and the body's cells more easily.
Soot: 0.01 – 0.3 microns
Long-term exposure to urban air pollution containing soot increases the risk of coronary heart disease, according to a major study published in New England Journal of Medicine in 2007.

Pet Dander: 0.1 – 25 microns
Pet dander is the old skin and fur that pets shed. Animal dander is very small and can become attached to your clothingeven if you do not own a pet. Dander can be found everywhere: floors, carpets, walls, furniture, bedding, even the ceilings. Pet dander is a known asthma and allergy trigger.
Dust Mites Allergens: 0.2 – 25 microns
House dust mites are considered to be the most common cause of asthma and allergic symptoms worldwide. Dust mites themselves do not cause an allergic reaction, however, their dung-pellets are an irritant to sensitive people and can cause breathing difficulties. They thrive in warm, humid, dark conditions such as mattresses, carpets, sheets, pillows, and upholstery.
Bacteria: 0.5 – 10 microns
People spread bacteria through the air when they cough and sneeze, transmitting respiratory diseases and triggering symptoms in asthma sufferers. Bacteria can also grow inside poorly maintained ventilation systems, which spread it into the circulating air.
Household Dust: 1 – 100 micron
Dust may worsen hay fever. Circulating outdoor air through a house by keeping doors and windows open, or at least slightly ajar, may reduce the risk of hay fever-causing dust. In colder climates, occupants seal even the smallest air gaps, and eliminate outside fresh air circulating inside the house. So it is essential to manage dust and airflow.
of all airborne
Mold Spores: 8 – 80 microns
Mold and fungus are commonly found in most homes and may be found in the air ducts of your heating/cooling system. They tend to float throughout the house, and form new colonies where they land. Fungus spores have been known to increase the chances of developing asthma.
Pollen: 10 – 100 microns
One of the most common allergens is pollen. It affects the nose, eyes, and mouth making it difficult to breathe. Most pollen that produces allergic reactions is from trees, grasses, and weeds.
