Proven protection against aerosolized viruses, bacteria, disinfectants and mercury vapor
IQAir extraoral suction air purification systems provide a line of defense against harmful airborne pathogens and infectious material that can threaten the health and safety of patients and staff. When combined with intraoral suction, IQAir extraoral suction air purifiers right at the patient source can reduce aerosol levels, bacterial colonies, and airborne viral particles from dental procedures to almost zero:
fine particles are smaller than 0.1 microns, make up about 90% of all airborne particles, and have been linked to heart attacks, strokes, asthma, respiratory disease, and even cancer. HyperHEPA filtration in the Dental Series filters 95% of all particles down to 0.003 microns – the smallest particles that exist, including viruses and bacteria.
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. HyperHEPA filtration in the Dental Series filters 95% of all particles down to 0.003 microns – the smallest particles that exist.
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 (as small as 0.05 microns in diameter). HyperHEPA filtration filters up to 99.5% of even these tiniest of viruses and other contaminants.
Every Dental Series system is hand-tested with electronic laser particle counters before it is shipped to ensure that the particle filtration efficiency and airflow of each system meet published specifications, and results are detailed in a hand-signed Certificate of Performance shipped with every Dental Series system.
Exceptionally porous, activated bituminous-coal carbon in gas-phase filtration cartridges blended with chemisorbers that filter volatile organic compounds in the air, including formaldehyde help protect against gases, odors, and chemicals, along with pelletized aluminum oxide impregnated with potassium permanganate.
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.
Today, facilities should be more than comfortable and attractive. They should also be healthy – providing clean air to occupants. The IQAir Clean Air Facility program helps you achieve clean air throughout your facility.
