Dental Series


Environmental control for dental offices

Proven protection against viruses, bacteria, disinfectants and mercury vapour

Mercury control

IQAir systems provide a line of defense against harmful mercury vapour that can threaten the health and safety of patients and staff. 

  1. The IQAir Dental Series Pro: Provides exceptional filtration of mercury vapour, disinfectant smells and a wide range of VOCs with 5 kg of granular impregnated alumina, activated carbon and impregnated activated carbon.
  2. The Dental Series Hg FlexVac System: Provides maximum protection against mercury vapour due to a source capture arm and specialised mercury filtration.

100x more filtration

IQAir Dental Series air purifiers filter even the smallest and most harmful of airborne particles, including tiny ultrafine particles. Unlike other air purifiers, IQAir's HyperHEPA filtration technology is proven to effectively filter ultrafine particles, the smallest and most harmful particles in the air. IQAir HyperHEPA filtration technology is effective against particles all the way down to 0.003 microns in diameter – the smallest particles that exist.

Proven effective against ultrafine particles

Ultrafine particles are smaller than 0.1 microns and make up about 90% of all airborne particles, originating from combustion from vehicle exhaust, factory emissions, and cooking. They have been linked to heart attacks, strokes, asthma and even cancer.IQAir’s HyperHEPA filtration in the Dental Series is proven and certified to filter at least 95% of all particles down to 0.003 microns – the smallest particles that exist. Each gas-phase cartridge is wrapped with a micro-charged post-filter sleeve that removes any additional particles released from the activated carbon adsorption and alumina pellet chemisorption media.

Filtration of viruses of all sizes

The prevention of contaminated dental equipment is always a priority for dental practices, but viruses and other contaminants can quickly spread through the air in a dental office. Drilling and other procedures can increase the presence of airborne viruses, including viral hepatitis, which is typically as small as 0.05 microns in diameter.

IQAir’s HyperHEPA filtration in the Dental Series has an efficiency of 95% against even these tiniest viruses and other contaminants, offering an additional level of protection for staff and patients.

Certified at the factory

Each and every Dental Series system is hand-tested before it is shipped. And the results are detailed in a hand-signed certificate. IQAir individually tests each and every Dental Series air purifier at the factory to ensure that the particle filtration efficiency and airflow of each system meet 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. The results of each test are detailed in a hand-signed Certificate of Performance  shipped from the factory in the box with every Dental Series system.

Two models for dental offices

With two models to choose from, you can select the IQAir system that fits the specific pollution control need:

  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 odours and mercury vapour.
  2. The Dental Hg FlexVac is also a mobile air cleaning system with a flexible suction duct to capture drill aerosols, abrasion powder, and mercury vapour during dental procedures before they spread.

Up to 5 stages of filtration

  1. Air in both models passes through a HyperHEPA H11 (EN 1822) pre-filter that stops 95% of all particles in the air.
  2. In the Dental Pro, air is powerfully moved through granular impregnated alumina, activated carbon, and impregnated activated carbon to filter a full range of gases, chemicals, and odours. And in the Dental Hg FlexVac, 5 kg of granular impregnated activated carbon provides maximum mercury filtration. 
  3. 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.

Best media, superior filtration

The extraordinary performance of the IQAir Dental Series begins with the highest quality, exceptionally porous, activated bituminous-coal carbon in the gas-phase filtration cartridges for protection against gases, odours, and chemicals.

The superior activated carbon media in the Dental Series is blended with chemisorbers that target volatile organic compounds in the air, including formaldehyde. The IQAir Dental Pro system also features pelletised aluminum oxide impregnated with potassium permanganate.

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. We test and certify each and every IQAir air purification system and manufacture our air purifiers at our state-of-the-art Swiss production facility on the pristine shores of Lake Constance. By using the highest quality components, a dedicated team of highly skilled and extensively trained specialists, and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes refined for more than 50 years, IQAir builds the finest air purifiers in the world.
