GCX™ Series


More performance, more protection.

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

Effectives against ultrafines

Ultrafine particles are smaller than 0.1 microns,  make up about 90% of all airborne particles, and have been linked to heart attacks, strokes, asthma and even cancer. IQAir’s HyperHEPA filtration in the GCX Series is proven and certified to filter at least 99.5% of all particles down to 0.003 microns – the smallest particles that exist.

Four configurations

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

Compare GCX to GC

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.

Full-spectrum protection

  • Micro- and nano-particle filtration features a powerful H11 HyperHEPA pre-filter that eliminates micro- and nano-particles.
  • Cartridge-based activated carbon adsorption eliminates volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
  • Cartridge-based chemisorption destroys chemicals like formaldehyde.
  • Micro-charged filtration post-filter sleeves eliminate activated carbon and chemisorption abrasion particles.

Best media for odors and chemicals

Target a wide spectrum of chemical contaminants and odors, including volatile organic compounds (VOCs) like formaldehyde, with gas-phase cartridges containing over 22 pounds (9.8 kg.) of granular, micropore-rich activated carbon blended with ChemiSorber media and pelletized aluminum oxide. 

New Edition technology

New Edition systems deliver 12% more clean air, provide 38% longer filter life and 7% less sound across all fan speeds than previous generations of air cleaners. At the heart of the New Edition systems is the IQAir New Edition fan, the most powerful fan ever used in a compact stand-alone air purifier. New pleating patterns and other technological advances in New Edition filters also contribute to increased airflow and longer filter life.

Certified performance

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. 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. 

100% Healthy technology

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.
