CleanZone® Hood


Tabletop environmental control

Medical-grade air delivered exactly where it's needed

Highly directional pure air

The CleanZone Hood helps take control of the air in the most critical work areas, protecting work and workers.

Up to 223 cfm of virtually particle-free air is focused directly on your most critical work areas, adding an unprecedented level of safety, protection and environmental control. This enormous amount of pure, contaminant-free air is controlled by a quiet, efficient, five-speed CleanZone Hood fan. In clean-air hood mode, the system assures your table is flooded with air free from 99.97% of all particles (0.3 microns and larger). In particle-extraction mode, the system helps protect work and worker by drawing air powerfully up and away from the workstation into the CleanZone Hood HyperHEPA filtration system.

Maximum particle protection

The CleanZone Hood provides extraordinary filtration of particles of all sizes, setting a new standard for tabletop control.

The CleanZone Hood tabletop air purifier is the most effective air cleaner ever for safe workstation environmental control. It is designed for cleanrooms, labs, museum curators, and other critical environments. Air is drawn in at the bottom (or top, in clean-air hood mode) of the system and pulled powerfully into the class F8 PreMax pre-filter. More than 55% of all particles 0.3 microns or larger are filtered at this point.

The IQAir fan powerfully draws air through the PreMax Pre-Filter and into the IQAir HyperHEPA hospital-grade H13 filter. The HyperHEPA filter is certified and proven to filter 99.97% of all particles 0.3 microns and larger and 99.5% of all particles down to 0.003 microns in diameter. These are the smallest particles that exist. Bacteria, viruses, combustion particles and virtually any other particles in the air are efficiently and effectively removed by the CleanZone Hood.

Proven to filter dangerous ultrafine particles

HyperHEPA filtration in the CleanZone Hood removes particles of all sizes, including ultrafine particles down to 0.003 microns.

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 at least 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.

Certified performance

Each and every IQAir system is individually tested at the factory to ensure that it meets our strict specifications.

IQAir individually tests each and every CleanZone Hood tabletop air purifier at the factory to ensure that the performance of each system meets published specifications. Electronic laser particle counters sample the air at the air purifier outlet to verify that the system is performing to efficiency standards in reality, not just theory. If the system is not performing as stated, it is not shipped. The results of each test are detailed in a hand-signed Certificate of Performance, which is shipped from the factory in the box with every CleanZone Hood system.

HyperHEPA superiority

The CleanZone Hood delivers a steady and abundant flow of medical-grade air to your tabletop.

The CleanZone Hood is designed to support the most sensitive individual work areas in cleanrooms and other critical environments by supplying a steady and abundant flow of virtually particle-free air. IQAir’s HyperHEPA filtration technology is recognized as the most efficient air filtration technology ever designed. IQAir HyperHEPA technology is proven to filter particles of all sizes, including ultrafine particles that are the most abundant and most dangerous contaminants of all. The CleanZone Hood streams HyperHEPA-filtered air directly to the work surfaces where you need it for the most critical work, so you know that viruses, bacteria and other contaminants are under control.

Swiss quality

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.

Energy efficient

The CleanZone Hood is so efficient it requires no more electricity than a lightbulb, even at its highest fan speed.

Even though IQAir CleanZone Hood offers maximum filtration, it costs very little to operate. In fact, the CleanZone Hood consumes no more power than a conventional light bulb. At the very heart of this tabletop air purifier is the ultra-efficient, centrifugal, high performance IQAir fan and its maintenance-free motor. This powerful fan requires little power, even at its highest speed. As a result, it costs only pennies per day to run the most advanced and effective cleanroom air purifier in the world.

Target contaminant control

The dual-mode design of the IQAir CleanZone Hood means it supplies or extracts air exactly where needed.

The CleanZone Hood provides unequalled safety and efficacy by excelling at two functions: 1) It is a clean-air hood that supplies a steady and powerful stream of air virtually free of all particles that could contaminate a critical workstation; and 2) it can also function as a particle-extraction hood that powerfully removes any contaminants from a critical workstation – quickly, safely and thoroughly. The dual-mode design provides full control of bacteria, viruses, spores, dust, soot, smoke particles, allergens, aerosols, and any other potential particulate contaminants that could affect the safety or integrity of critical-environment work.

Compact yet full-powered

The CleanZone Hood provides the highest-quality medical grade air but requires very little space.

Despite its compact design and extraordinary portability, the CleanZone Hood features the most powerful IQAir HyperHEPA filtration available. This system uses the same filtration technology chosen by the Hong Kong Hospital Authority to fight the spread of the deadly SARS virus. Critical workstations demand the purest air possible to avoid contamination and to protect safety, and there is no air purifier capable of delivering cleaner air to a workstation than the IQAir CleanZone Hood.

Quiet performance

IQAir's unique and advanced design allows the CleanZone Hood to deliver more clean air where needed, without extra noise.

Advanced 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

Many air purifiers use technology that produces potentially harmful byproducts such as ozone, ions, chemicals and ultrafine particles. IQAir doesn't.

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 features a streamlined control panel, sophisticated fan and filter life controls, and a filter-life monitor

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.


The CleanZone Hood is easy to pick up and move to another workstation, whenever and where it's needed.

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

IQAir's unique, patented triple-seal knife-edge-in-groove design eliminates leakage, so all the air moving through the system is cleaned.

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.
