IQAir GC MultiGas Air Purifier
Dressed in attractive yet professional packaging, the IQAir GC Multigas Air Purifier comes well protected in several layers of plastic wrap and Styrofoam with its user manual, quick-start instructions, testing certifications, and authenticity information at the top of the box. Once removed from the shipping container, the air purifier makes a bold statement that other machines will struggle to compete with.
It looks like something you would see in a doctor’s office – not necessarily a bad thing if you value indoor air quality. Blue support struts run vertically along two sides of the purification structure and can be snapped out of place to remove filter housing substructures within the unit. Caster wheels come with the unit and can be installed to facilitate easier relocation of the very large machine.
IQAir’s GC Multigas Air Purifier is designed for large areas requiring a powerful purifier meant to remove the most dense smoke, gas, and VOCs from air. Meant for rooms as large as 1,125 sq ft, the machine pulls air through a proprietary HyperHEPA IQAir GC Multigas pre-filter (located at the bottom of the unit in a removable tray), upward through multiple activated carbon cylinders which remove VOCs and odors, a secondary stage of the carbon filters which treats via chemisorption to destroy harmful chemicals in the air like formaldehyde, and finally through a post-filter sleeve which prevents activated carbon particulate from escaping from the air that’s returned to the treated environment.
The IQAir GC Series was designed with a 320-degree EvenFlow Diffuser to supply more air in more directions without drafts or noise. Other systems create annoying air drafts and restrict the ability of a system to produce fresh, clean air that can fill the room. The IQAir GC Series EvenFlow Diffuser boosts system efficiency by evenly returning cleaned air through a large 320-degree outlet. The wide dispersion pattern allows the GC Series to produce an elevated air delivery rate with very little noise.
Designed for full-spectrum protection
IQAir GC Series air purifiers are designed to clean the full spectrum of airborne pollutants with the very best filtration technology available at each stage of filtration. Air is drawn into the GC Series air purifier through the bottom of the system by a powerful New Edition IQAir fan. Then the air pulled into the system is sequentially cleaned in a step-by-step process that delivers clean, healthy air. IQAir's unique no-leakage design prevents air from escaping back into the room without being drawn first through the GC Series filters. The multiple filtration stages include:
1. Micro- and nano-particle filtration: The first stage of filtration features a powerful H11 HyperHEPA® pre-filter that eliminates micro- and nano-particles such as allergens, smoke, bacteria and viruses.
2. Cartridge-based activated carbon adsorption (Except ChemiSorber model): Eliminates volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which are responsible for odors.
3. Cartridge-based chemisorption (MultiGas and ChemiSorber models): Destroys harmful chemicals, such as formaldehyde, by an oxidation process inside chemically active alumina pellets.
4. Electrostatically charged fibers: Post-filter sleeves eliminate activated carbon and chemisorption abrasion particles through a charged fiber structure.
The quietest high-performance air purifiers
IQAir GC Series air purifiers produce an average of 32% less sound across all fan speeds compared to previous generations without sacrificing filter life or system efficiency. The result is clean, healthy air without disrupting the environment with noise. IQAir’s "fan-in-center" design places the fan motor between sound-attenuating filters. The double-walled housing effectively reduces sound transmission. Rubber suspension pads systematically isolate motor vibration from the air cleaner housing. The EvenFlow Diffuser deflects sounds back into the system while returning low turbulence and low velocity air to the room. The result is an air purifier quiet enough for any commercial environment.
