Air purification designed for dental offices.
Two models for dental offices
The IQAir Dental Series includes two models, the Dental Pro and the Dental Hg FlexVac™, each of which specifically address the pollution-control needs of dental offices.
1. The Dental Pro is a compact, stand-alone air purifier that features five filtration stages to help eliminate dental office contaminants such as bacteria, viruses, VOCs, disinfectant odors and mercury vapors. It can easily be placed anywhere in the office and cleans the air by constant recirculation within the office.
2. The Dental Hg FlexVac™ is also a mobile air cleaning system, but additionally features a flexible suction duct. The Dental Hg FlexVac excels at capturing drill aerosols, abrasion powder, and mercury vapors during dental procedures. The flexible suction duct is typically placed on the patient’s chest to directly capture drill aerosols and mercury vapors before they spread.
320-degree air exhaust
Most air cleaners return filtered air into the environment through a small, noisy outlet that can make it difficult to even communicate. The IQAir Dental Series was designed with a 320-degree EvenFlow Diffuser to supply more air in more directions without drafts or noise. Other systems create annoying air drafts and restrict the ability of a system to produce fresh, clean air that can fill the room. The IQAir Dental Series EvenFlow Diffuser boosts system efficiency by evenly returning cleaned air through a large 320-degree outlet. The wide dispersion pattern allows the Dental Series to produce an elevated air delivery rate with very little noise.
Up to 5 stages of filtration
The IQAir Dental Series design incorporates up to five stages of filtration to provide extraordinary control of a full spectrum of contaminants in the air. First, air in both models passes through a HyperHEPA® H11 (EN 1822) pre-filter that stops 95% of all particles in the air. Next, in the Dental Pro, air is powerfully moved through three different filtration media – granular impregnated alumina, activated carbon and impregnated activated carbon – to filter a full range of gases, chemicals, and odors. In the Dental Hg FlexVac™ model, 11 pounds of granular impregnated activated carbon are included for maximum filtration of mercury. Finally, both models feature a set of fine-dust post-filtration sleeves with electrostatically charged microfibers that remove any remaining contaminants to achieve 99% total system efficiency at 0.3 microns and 95% efficiency at 0.003 microns.
The quietest high-performance air purifiers
IQAir Dental Series air purifiers feature IQAir New Edition technology that produces an average of 32% less sound across all fan speeds compared to previous generations. This improvement was accomplished by matching IQAir New Edition filter-pleating technology with the New Edition fan and its "fan-in-center" design that places the fan motor between sound-attenuating filters. HyperHEPA filters with New Edition technology in the Dental Series also last 20% longer than before. Also, the New Edition systems generate up to 21% more clean air with no loss of efficiency.
Swiss Made is more than just a label of origin. It is a sign of outstanding quality, uniqueness, superior design, innovation, precision and reliability. In an industry in which most air cleaners don't meet manufacturers' claims, IQAir tests and certifies each and every IQAir air purification system. All manufacturing is done in IQAir’s own state-of-the-art Swiss production facility on the pristine shores of the Lake of Constance. By using the highest quality components, a dedicated team of highly skilled and extensively trained craftsmen and women, and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes refined over 50 years, IQAir is able to build the finest air purifiers in the world.
Easy filter replacement
Both models of the IQAir Dental Series feature IQAir’s revolutionary modular tower design that snaps open to allow access to all of the system filters in a matter of seconds. By simply releasing the locking arms and sliding the filters out of the frame, almost anyone in the office can replace any of the Dental Series filters in moments without special tools or complicated processes. Color-coded lights on the control panel also make it easy to know when each of the filters needs replacing.
IQAir Dental Series air purifiers cost very little to operate. They require no more power than a conventional light bulb. At the very heart of these air purifiers is the ultra-efficient, centrifugal, high performance IQAir New Edition fan and its maintenance-free motor. This mechanical powerhouse delivers up to 780 cubic feet of air per minute (without filters) while requiring as little as 27 watts of power at the lowest speed and up to a maximum of 215 watts at the highest speed. As a result, it costs only pennies per day to protect your staff and patients with the most advanced air filtration technology available for dental offices.

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