CleanZone® Hood

Critical features for maximum control.

The CleanZone Hood is as sophisticated as it is powerful.

Tabletop features.

 

Portability

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.

Quiet performance

The quietest high-performance air purifiers everAdvanced 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.

Sophisticated controls

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.

Size Matters

Ordinary HEPA filters
can only filter 0.3 micron particles and larger.

0.003 microns

Viruses
Viruses

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
Tobacco Smoke

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
Soot

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
Pet Dander

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
Dust Mites

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
Bacteria

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
Household Dust

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.

Mold Spores
Mold Spores

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
Pollen

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.

Coarse Particles

Select one of the particles
above to see how it affects your body

ULTRAFINE PARTICLES (Particles 0.003μ - 0.1μ) | 90% of all airborne particles

Ultrafine particles are airborne particles less than 0.1 microns in diameter. In sheer number, they represent more than 90% of all airborne pollutants. Ultrafine particles are inhaled and deposited directly into the lungs, where they penetrate tissue and can be absorbed directly into the bloodstream. Through the bloodstream, they can reach any organ or area of the human body.

FINE PARTICLES (PM2.5) | Greater than 9% of all airborne particles

Fine particles (also known as PM2.5) are particulate matter that is less than or equal to 2.5 microns in diameter. Fine particles penetrate deeply into the lungs, into areas known as small airways and into the primary air exchange areas of the lungs. Fine particles come from vehicle exhaust, gas and chemical reactions, tobacco smoke, burning candles and other indoor and outdoor sources.

COARSE PARTICLES (PM10) | Less than 1% of all airborne particles

Coarse particles (also known as PM10) are those with a diameter between 2.5 and 10 microns in diameter. Coarse particles are deposited almost exclusively in the nose and throat. They are not generally inhalable directly into the lungs. Examples of PM10 include coal dust, fly ash, some components of wood smoke, asbestos fibers, and roadside particles from tires and brakes. This category also includes dust, some pollen and mold spores.
