CleanZone® 5000 Series


The ultimate stand-alone air purifier

More power, more protection, more options.

Highly effective against ultrafine particles

IQAir’s advanced HyperHEPA filtration is highly effective against particles 100x smaller than what is claimed by other air purifier manufacturers.

While the adverse health effects of PM2.5 and PM10 have been studied for many years, scientists agree the most harmful form of air pollution is ultrafine particles. Ultrafine particles are by definition smaller than 0.1 micron. By sheer number, they make up more than 90% of all airborne particles. Because a particle that is 0.1 micron in size weighs 1,000,000 (one million!) times less than a 10 micron particle, ultrafine particles are grossly underrepresented in PM2.5 and PM10 measurements.

Ultrafine particles can stay in the air for hours, are easily inhaled deep into their lungs and get absorbed into the bloodstream. From there, ultrafine particles reach every organ and every cell in the body and disrupt their proper operation. Ultrafine particles have been linked to heart attacks, strokes, asthma and even cancer.

Two powerful models

The CleanZone 5000 Series comes in two different models: the 5100 for ultimate protection against particles and the 5200 for advanced gas and odor control.

The CleanZone 5000 Series is available in two configurations to maximize its effectiveness:

  • CleanZone 5100: For maximum reduction of particulate matter and microorganisms, this system combines high-efficiency pre-filtration with a 300 square-foot (28 m2) class 12/13 HyperHEPA filter for ultimate particle control.
  • CleanZone 5200: For maximum reduction of gases, odors, and particulate matter (including microorganisms), the 5200 features high-efficiency pre-filtration, up to 158 lbs. (72 kg) of gas and odor filtration media plus class H11 post-filtration.

HyperHEPA filtration

The CleanZone 5100 features IQAir’s HyperHEPA air filtration technology, the most advanced air cleaning technology in the world.

The CleanZone 5100 features IQAir’s advanced HyperHEPA technology. This is the most advanced air filtration technology in the world, and is proven and certified to be effective against ultrafine particles. HyperHEPA filtration captures particles 100x smaller than what is claimed by ordinary air filters. The CleanZone 5200, designed primarily for gas-phase control, also includes high-efficiency particle filtration. Both models include the IQAir high-efficiency PreMax 500 Filter Drum as part of the system’s fan module. The PreMax 500 pre-filter eliminates micro-particles such as pollen, mold spores and other contaminants, and also 85% of all ultrafine particles down to 0.003 microns in diameter.

Advanced particle filtration

IQAir’s CleanZone 5100 Series air purifier combines powerful, high-efficiency pre-filtration with up to 301 square feet of HyperHEPA filtration media.

HyperHEPA is the only air cleaning technology tested and certified to effectively filter harmful ultrafine pollution particles down to 0.003 microns in size with an efficiency of 99.5%. These tiny particles are 100 times smaller than what is filtered with ordinary air filtration technology and up to 10 times smaller than a typical virus.

Highly effective against airborne chemicals

The amazing performance of the CleanZone 5200 model begins with the highest-quality activated bituminous-coal carbon in the gas-phase cartridges.

IQAir does not use zeolite, another less effective and less expensive filtration medium. The superior activated carbon in CleanZone 5200 models with gas and odor filtration is blended with chemisorbers that target other volatile organic compounds in the air, including formaldehyde. In some configurations, IQAir activated carbon is complemented by pelletized aluminum oxide. The alumina pellets are impregnated with potassium permanganate, forming a powerful combination to filter a wide spectrum of gases, odors and chemicals.

Multiple configurations

With two models and many optional configurations, the CleanZone 5000 offers a performance combination for almost every air quality problem.

The CleanZone 5100 is equipped with the IQAir HyperHEPA 700 filter drum for maximum filtration efficiency of fine and ultrafine particles. The CleanZone 5200 is optimized for gas-phase pollution treatment, with 12 GCXL/S cartridges in six available configurations:

  • MultiGas: for volatile organic compounds and many inorganic compounds
  • VOC: for volatile organic compounds, hydrocarbons and solvents
  • ChemiSorber: for inorganic compounds and some organic compounds (e.g., formaldehyde and sulfur dioxide)
  • AM (ammonia): for ammonia and amines
  • AcidPro: for acids such as hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide, chlorine, and sulfuric acid
  • Hg (mercury): for mercury vapors

At the pre-filtration stage, the CleanZone 5100’s high-efficiency pre-filter removes more than 95% of all particles (0.3 microns and larger), including 85% of all particles down to 0.003 microns, before air is moved through additional HyperHEPA particle filtration or gas and odor filter cartridges.

High volume, high efficiency

IQAir CleanZone 5000 Series moves more air (up to 1200 cfm) through more high-performance air filtration media than any other IQAir stand-alone air purifier.

This extraordinary capacity is made possible by integrating a powerful fan into every CleanZone 5000 model. The fan is powerful enough to move large volumes of air through HyperHEPA particle filters and broad-spectrum gas and odor filters, depending on the model.

Quiet operation

Suitable for noise-sensitive environments such as meeting rooms, offices and public business areas, or anywhere else that demands the cleanest air without noise.

The CleanZone 5000 is powerful, yet quiet. Its 10 fan-speed settings allow it to be set to a fan speed that matches the sound requirements of any indoor environment, whether it is a library or laboratory.

CleanZone 5100: Ultimate particle filtration

The CleanZone 5100 model combines two of IQAir’s most powerful filtration media into a single high-capacity air purifier.

First, a high-efficiency filter module cleans the air of a minimum of 95% of all particles 0.3 microns in diameter or larger, and more than 85% of all ultrafine particles down to 0.003 microns, the smallest particles that exist. After passing through the high-efficiency pre-filtration module, the cleaned air is then powerfully drawn through 301 square feet (27.96m2) of advanced IQAir HyperHEPA® filtration media. This filters any remaining particles, with a total efficiency of 99.97% of all particles 0.3 microns or larger and 99.5% of all particles down to 0.003 microns in diameter.

Swiss quality

Swiss Made is more than just a label. It’s a sign of outstanding quality, uniqueness, superior design, innovation, precision and reliability.

The CleanZone 5000 has not only been Swiss designed and engineered, it is also manufactured in Switzerland. While many of our competitors outsource the manufacturing process of their air cleaning system to other companies, for IQAir the manufacturing process is the logical conclusion to the process of creating a high-performance product. It exemplifies our commitment not only to what we make, but how we make it. By using the highest quality components, a team of dedicated craftsmen and women, and a manufacturing process refined over more than 50 years, IQAir is able to build the finest air purifiers in the world.
