The IQAir CleanZone SL.
The quietest high-performance air purifier ever made.
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.
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.
Effective against ultrafine particles
Ultrafine particles are the smallest and most potentially dangerous pollution particles in the air. They are easily absorbed into the lungs and cause a variety of respiratory and other health problems. IQAir’s advanced HyperHEPA filtration in the CleanZone SL stand-alone air purifier is proven effective against these tiny ultrafine particles which represent 90% of all the contaminants in the air.
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.
No other air purifier comes close to matching the quiet, unobtrusive operation of the IQAir CleanZone SL. Much of the credit for this belongs to the two precise and powerful IQAir fans that move large quantities of air through the CleanZone SL with a minimum amount of vibration and little turbulence. IQAir’s nanofiber filtration technology allows more air to pass through the CleanZone SL filters than would be possible with conventional filters, while also maintaining filter efficiency levels that are unsurpassed. The CleanZone SL features a sound-reducing post-filtration design that directs air silently and efficiently into the environment without generating unnecessary noise.
Studies confirm CleanZone SL effectiveness
A study conducted by the Universityof 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.
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.
