Environmental control for dental offices

Proven protection against aerosolized viruses, bacteria, disinfectants, and mercury vapour

Extraoral suction: infection control

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:

  • Dental Series Hg: Provides maximum protection against aerosol particles and mercury vapor with specialized mercury filtration.
  • HealthPro Plus: Provides maximum infection control of airborne pathogens like bacteria and viruses as small as 0.003 microns along with exceptional filtration of odors, chemicals, and VOCs.

100x more filtration for infection control

IQAir Dental Series air purifiers filter even the smallest and most harmful of airborne particles, including aerosols from high-speed dental procedures and tiny, dangerous ultrafine particles. Unlike other air purifiers, IQAir's HyperHEPA filtration technology is proven to effectively filter ultrafine particles, the smallest and most harmful particles in the air, effective against particles all the way down to 0.003 microns in diameter – the smallest particles that exist.

Proven effective against ultrafine particles

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 is proven and certified to filter at least 95% of all particles down to 0.003 microns – the smallest particles that exist.

Filtration of viruses of all sizes

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.

Certified at the factory

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.

Up to 5 stages of filtration

  1. Air in both models passes through a HyperHEPA H11 (EN 1822) pre-filter that stops 95% of all particles in the air.
  2. In the Dental Pro, air is powerfully moved through granular impregnated alumina, activated carbon, and impregnated activated carbon to filter a full range of gases, chemicals, and odors. And in the Dental Hg, 11 pounds of granular impregnated activated carbon provide maximum mercury filtration. 
  3. Both models feature a set of fine-dust post-filtration sleeves with electrostatically charged microfibers that remove any remaining contaminants to achieve 99% total system efficiency at 0.3 microns and 95% efficiency at 0.003 microns.

Best media, superior filtration

Exceptionally porous, activated bituminous-coal carbon in gas-phase filtration cartridges blended with chemisorbers that target volatile organic compounds in the air, including formaldehyde protect against gases, odors, and chemicals, along with pelletized aluminum oxide impregnated with potassium permanganate.

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. 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.
