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.
