IQAir's NanoMax filter

Ultra-high performance HVAC air filtration

Advanced design

Advanced HyperHEPA pleat design allowed IQAir designers to build in 60 square feet of surface area – five times more than the surface area of a conventional pleated air filter. The result is increased airflow and better filter loading, which widens replacement intervals and reduces costs.

Cost-effective

Typical three-month replacement intervals can be extended to 12 months with the NanoMax filter. And unlike conventional commercial HEPA filters, NanoMax filters require little or no alterations to existing HVAC systems. Increased productivity, lower infection rates, higher attendance, lower health care costs, and higher employee retention have all been associated with improved air quality.

Extraordinarily effective

  • Straining Effect: Captures particles > 100 μm too large to fit between fibers. 
  • Impingement Effect: Particles > 10 μm collide with and attach to fibers. 
  • Interception Effect: Particles < 10 μm are captured by proximity to the fiber. 
  • Electrostatic Attraction: Electrostatic charges of fibers attract and capture particles < 10 μm.
  • Diffusion: Particles < 0.1 μm bounce around and collide with fibers.

A new generation of air filters

NanoMax reduce fine and ultrafine particles by up to 95%, including viruses, bacteria, allergens, and harmful traffic pollutants. NanoMax filters eliminate the need for costly upgrades to a building’s HVAC system typically associated with HEPA filters. NanoMax filters require no prefilters, fit into standard 2” filter slots, and have pressure drops fully compatible with standard HVAC systems.
