Description

When you must have superior performance, IQAir GC series air purifiers for gaseous contaminants, VOCs and particulates are top of the line and provide unmatched air quality. Like a professional gas mask, the GC series air purifiers maximize molecular filtration for specific types of gaseous chemicals, or in the case of the GC Multigas, a wide variety of gaseous chemicals and odors with their advanced filter cartridge design. These air purifiers also offer excellent filtration for particles and can be used with an Inflow or Outflow kit to produce a safe room for medical purposes. IQAir really goes the extra mile with advanced controls for monitoring each filter’s useful life and making it exceptionally easy to change filters without screwdrivers.

Features

  • Controls gaseous contaminants: Specially design for gas and odor control in homes, offices or medical environments.
  • Targets specific or wide spectrum gases: Depending on model, helps to remove volatile organic compounds (VOCs), tobacco smoke, odors and chemicals. (Note: Improved ventilation and use of air purifiers may reduce, but will not completely eliminate, your exposure to secondhand smoke and the associated health risks.)
  • The Multigas for MCS: The GC Multigas air purifiers are the best choice for those with chemical sensitivities (MCS).
  • High capacity gas filter cartridges: each provide a specific type of either gas, chemical, or voc control. The cylindrical cartridges have a large surface area that promotes high gas removal and ensures a high air flow rate within the machine.
  • Excellent particle filtration: Pre-filter and post filter sleeves that are statically charged media to improve particle filtration with 97% efficiency at 0.3 microns
  • Advanced eco-friendly controls: are unmatched in the industry. The LCD display shows remaining useful life of each filter so you don’t change a filter before you need to and thereby reduce landfill waste; timer lets you program the unit for automatic operation so you can automatically turn it on high and hour before you plan to be in the room and turn it off when you are not there so you save energy.
  • Additional controls: LCD display shows air delivery rate and speed, remote control to change fan speeds or turn unit on or off.
  • Efficient design: Air intake is the maximum distance from air outlet to prevent re-intake of already cleaned air (short-cutting. The air outlet diffuser returns clean, low-turbulence, low-velocity air.
  • Create a safe room: Optional intake or outlet adapter is available to create over or under pressure environments for safe or clean rooms.

Accessories

  • Intake adaptor:
    • Draws air into the room: Air is drawn through a wall from another room (for temperature control) or window vent and ensures oxygen-rich air is cleaned of its pollutants before it is circulated in the room.
    • Includes: base extension blocks and suction adapter (to place beneath air purifier), square-to-round duct connector, flexible aluminum duct, wall flange with backdraft damper, wall tube, vent, and mesh grill
    • Compatible with: all IQAir filtration devices. Not compatible with the accessories PF40, VMF, VM FlexVac, VM Inflow and FlexVac
  • Outlet adaptor:
    • Directs air to another room: Allows clean, filtered air from any IQAir air purifier to be directed through a wall or inside window vent to another room. So the air purifier sits outside the clean or safe room
    • Includes: Top flow adapter (to place on top of air purifier), flexible aluminum duct, wall flange with backdraft damper, wall tube, vent, and mesh grille
    • IQAir Compatibility: Compatible with all IQAir filtration devices & accessories.

Setup/Care

Replace the pre-filter every 6 - 13 months depending upon usage.
Replace the carbon filters and post filter sleeves every 12 - 30 months depending on use.

How it Works

These air purifiers take in air from the bottom of the unit. The air is passed through the pre-filter, then through the fan. The fan pushes the air through the gas media and then the post filter. Clean air is then vented out of the sides just below the top of the unit.
One thing to remember about all air purifiers is that the effectiveness of the air purifier depends upon the rate of recontamination. For instance, if you want to get rid of tobacco smoke and you continue to have smokers in your environment, the air purifier will not be as effective, nor will the filters last as long.

Reviews

Expert Review

The IQAir GC series is able to meet almost any moderate gas phase removal need in residential or commercial environments. Offering four specialized air purifiers each designed to address a different types of gas, chemical, or VOC, it is easy to find the right unit for your needs. The GC series are fairly large units, but they are still fairly energy efficient to run (about as much as two light bulbs). Along with specialized filtration, they have a programmable timer to operate the unit at pre-designated times. This helps save energy by setting the unit to run only when necessary. The advanced controls include a filter monitoring system that we just love. The filter indicators let you know when a filter needs changing, allowing for maximum use without having to guess. These air purifiers including the filters are environmentally friendly and made with non-off-gassing materials.
