Tabletop environmental control

Medical-grade air delivered exactly where it's needed

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 (UFPs) are smaller than 0.1 microns and comprise about 90% of all airborne particles. They’re generated primarily by combustion from motor vehicles, refineries, industrial plants, and cooking – viruses also fall into this category. UFPs are easily inhaled, deposited into the lungs, and absorbed into the blood, and have been linked to heart attacks, strokes, asthma, and cancer.

Many air filtration manufacturers claim only that their systems filter particles larger than 0.3 microns. IQAir is different. The CleanZone Hood’s patented, award-winning HyperHEPA filtration is certified to filter at least 99.5% of all particles down to 0.003 microns – the smallest particles that exist. Independent laboratory and government testing has consistently verified the effectiveness of IQAir technology against UFPs.

When it comes to protection against ultrafine particulates, IQAir is the proven choice.

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.

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.

Targeted 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 ensure safety, and there is no air purifier capable of delivering cleaner air to a workstation than the IQAir CleanZone Hood.
