IQAir GCX VOC
IQAir makes this statement about its GCX Series: “Never before has this level of gaseous contaminant control been more versatile, powerful and compact than with the IQAir GCX Series. Compared to the GC Series, the GCX Series features up to 110% more filtration media yet provides greater airflow and longer filter service life [hence its higher cost compared to the GC Series] .”
It should be noted that the extraordinary performance of the IQAir GCX Series, including that for volatile organic compounds (VOCs), is due to the use of the highest quality, exceptionally porous, activated bituminous-coal carbon in its gas-phase filtration cartridges. The lower-cost, high-dust carbon from coconut shells that many air purifiers use is not used in this Series. That is of course good news for anyone who may be allergic to coconut. Furthermore, IQAir does not use zeolite, another less expensive but far less effective filtration medium.
Of great pride for IQAir is that their GCX Series air purifiers feature almost twice as much particle-filtration media as their GC Series. While conventional HEPA filtration is effective against particles as small as 0.3 microns in diameter, IQAir's HyperHEPA® filtration technology in the GCX has been independently proven to halt the smallest, most harmful particles in the air, as small as 0.003 microns. These are the smallest particles that exist around us.
The GCX VOC air purifiers feature IQAir New Edition technology that makes them more powerful than ever. New Edition systems deliver 12% more clean air, provide 38% longer filter life and 7% less noise across all fan speeds. At the core of the New Edition systems is the IQAir New Edition fan, said to be the most powerful fan ever used in a compact stand-alone air purifier. Not shabby at all!
It is important to note IQAir’s rigorous and commendable commitment to proving that quality control has actually been undertaken: “The results of each test are detailed in a hand-signed Certificate of Performance, which is shipped from the factory in the box with every GCX Series [VOC] system.” That is the extent of their commitment to the highest quality of air purifiers - not to mention their belief in what they manufacture
The Swiss are respected worldwide for their meticulous attention to detail, superb quality and technological prowess. That is why IQAir’s hyper-performance GCX VOC can be trusted as the very pinnacle in commercial air purification systems for VOCs and like contaminants.
