The IQAir CleanZone SL.
The quietest high-performance air purifier ever made.
Highly effective against ultrafine particles
While the adverse health effects of PM2.5 and PM10 have been studied for many years, scientists agree the most harmful form of air pollution is ultrafine particles. Ultrafine particles are by definition smaller than 0.1 micron. By sheer number, they make up over 90% of all airborne particles. Because a particle that is 0.1 micron in size weighs 1,000,000 (one million!) times less than a 10 micron particle, ultrafine particles are grossly underrepresented in PM2.5 and PM10 measurements. Because they are so tiny ultrafine particles can stay in the air for hours, are easily inhaled deep into our lungs and get absorbed into the bloodstream. From there ultrafine particles reach every organ and every cell in our body and disrupt their proper operation. Ultrafine particles have been linked to heart attacks, strokes, asthma and even cancer. An independent study conducted by the University of California, Riverside demonstrated that the IQAir CleanZone SL is capable of 94% of ultrafine particles from the air in a large classroom.
Powerful tool for allergens and microorganisms
The CleanZone SL is also extremely effective in the removal of all types of allergens and microorganisms. They are effectively removed by the CleanZone SL as it is capable of cleaning the entire air in 1000 square feet space once every 15 minutes. This means that room air pollutants are pulled through the CleanZone SL’s 99% efficient HyperHEPA filter four times an hour. The result is a very high reduction in the concentration of allergens and microorganisms in room air.
Exceptional pollution control
The IQAir CleanZone SL stand-alone air purifier was developed for offices, schools, hospitals, and other commercial sites negatively affected by elevated levels of air pollution. IQAir filtration media in the CleanZone SL removes more than 99% of all particles 0.3 microns or larger and is proven to filter ultrafine particles down to 0.003 microns in diameter, the smallest particles that exist. Diesel soot, allergens, viruses and all other airborne contaminants are filtered continuously and clean, healthy air is returned to the environment from the top of the CleanZone SL system.
The CleanZone SL has an exceptional airflow capacity of up to 600 cubic feet per minute (cfm) while meeting the most stringent noise standards and providing unequaled air filtration. This airflow is six times higher than what typical air filtration systems are capable of delivering at low noise levels. The high capacity of the CleanZone SL enables it to provide up to four complete air changes per hour in a 9,000 cubic foot room. Air is drawn in from the bottom of the CleanZone SL system and is directed upward into the environment to avoid annoying drafts and discomfort.
The CleanZone SL is the quietest high-performance air purifier in the world. Even at the highest fan speed setting the CleanZone SL only generates an incredibly low sound level of 45 dB(A). That is a three times lower sound level than that generated by typical professional air purifiers and practically inaudible even in a quiet office environment.
Studies confirm CleanZone SL effectiveness
A study conducted by the University of California, Riverside, College of Engineering Center for Environmental Research demonstrated that the IQAir CleanZone SL stand-alone air filtration system removed 90% of black carbon particles and 94% of ultrafine particles in the air from a classroom in Jurupa Valley, Calif. Other government studies of IQAir filtration technologies have yielded similar results, clearly showing the superior filtration capabilities of IQAir's HyperHEPA filtration technology.

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.

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.
