The IQAir CleanZone SL.

The quietest high-performance air purifier ever made.

The IQAir CleanZone SL.

 

Highly effective against ultrafine particles

Certified performanceWhile 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

 

Powerful tool for allergens and microorganisms

Highly effective against allergens and microorganismsThe 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.

Up to more filtration than standard HEPA

Exceptional pollution control

100x more filtrationThe 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.

Up to more filtration than standard HEPA

High airflow

100x more filtrationThe 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.

Exceptionally quiet

Certified performanceThe 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.

100x more filtrationA 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.

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.

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.
