GCX™ Series

Content

More performance, more protection.

The GCX offers greater coverage, longer filter life than the GC Series.

Proven against ultrafine particles

HyperHEPA filtration in the GCX Series removes particles of all sizes, including ultrafine particles down to 0.003 microns. This goes far beyond what ordinary air cleaners are capable of.

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 up to 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.

Four configurations

With four unique gas-phase cartridge configurations, the GCX Series meets the specific gas-phase filtration requirements of a variety of Indoor Air Quality challenges.

Currently, there are four specialized gas-phase media configurations available:

  • GCX VOC 
(for control of volatile organic compounds, solvents, etc.)
  • GCX MultiGas 
(for control of wide range of gaseous organic and inorganic chemicals)
  • GCX ChemiSorber
 (for control of formaldehyde, hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide, etc.)
  • GCX AM
 (for control of ammonia and ammonia compounds)

The IQAir H11 HyperHEPA Pre-Filter is a critical feature of every GCX Series air purifier and provides medical-grade filtration of particles of all sizes in addition to the specific gas-phase filtration of each configuration.

Compare GCX to GC

Never before has this level of gaseous contaminant control been more versatile, powerful, and compact than with the IQAir GCX Series.

Compared to the GC Series, the GCX Series features up to 110% more filtration media, yet provides greater airflow and longer filter service life. With up to 32 pounds of specially formulated gas-phase filter media, the GCX Series offers the most powerful gas-phase air filtration systems in the IQAir compact stand-alone product lineup. The GCX Series also features advanced anti-tampering features that prevent the unauthorized access to filters or disconnection of the system in public areas.

Full-spectrum protection

IQAir GCX Series air purifiers are designed to clean the full spectrum of airborne pollutants with the very best filtration technology available at each stage of filtration.

Best media, superior filtration

The extraordinary performance of the IQAir GCX Series begins with the highest quality, exceptionally porous activated carbon in its gas-phase filtration cartridges.

This is not the low-cost, high-dust carbon from coconut shells that many air purifiers use. That’s good news for anyone allergic to coconut. IQAir does not use zeolite, another less effective and less expensive filtration medium. The superior activated carbon media in the GCX Series is blended with chemisorbers that target airborne volatile organic compounds, including formaldehyde. This system also features pelletized aluminum oxide, impregnated with potassium permanganate to filter a wide spectrum of gases, odors, and chemicals.

New Edition technology

GCX Series air purifiers feature IQAir New Edition technology that makes them more powerful than ever. This is the new generation of air purifiers.

Certified performance

IQAir looks beyond theoretical claims, testing the performance of each individual GCX Series system at the factory to ensure that it meets our strict specifications.

IQAir individually tests each and every GCX Series 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 GCX Series system.

Energy efficient

The advanced IQAir GCX Series air purifier is so efficient that it needs no more electricity than a light bulb.

Even though IQAir GCX Series air purifiers offer maximum-level filtration, they cost very little to operate. In fact, the GCX Series consumes no more power than a conventional light bulb. At the very heart of this air purifier 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 few 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 very little to run the most advanced and effective gas and particle air purifier in the world.

100% Healthy technology

IQAir’s HyperHEPA filtration features only safe, healthy air-cleaning technology to filter pollutants from the air, without producing ozone or ions.

IQAir’s HyperHEPA filtration technology is the safest, healthiest, and most effective way to clean the air. The GCX Series 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. Why risk safety and efficacy on air cleaner gimmicks when IQAir's unique design offers proven protection without harmful byproducts?
