Dental laboratories can benefit from having an effective air pollution control systems in place. From fine and ultra-fine dust particles created by grinding, polishing and sandblasting, to chemicals released during polymerisation, there is a wide range of pollutants that are dangerous to owners, employees and customers alike.
Without adequate filtration systems, those working or visiting dental laboratories will be routinely exposed to several or more of the following contaminants. Exposure to these contaminants can lead to respiratory conditions such as occupational asthma, or aggravate existing respiratory conditions. These contaminants can also result in cancer, pneumoconiosis and silicosis. It is therefore vital that these contaminants are captured before being inhaled.
The IQAir VM FlexVac converts any IQAir system into a self-contained extraction system that captures and retains contamination at the source using a flexible vacuum attachment. The FlexVac can be wall-mounted (as shown) or fitted with casters for added mobility.
Commercial Air Filtration is the UK supplier for IQAir of Switzerland. IQAir is the most popular manufacturer of standalone air filtration systems and is used by leading dental laboratories and healthcare institutions worldwide.

Which IQAir system is most appropriate to you depends on the type of contamination and quantity of contamination you wish to control and the size of your laboratory. We have listed our three most popular filtration systems for laboratories below, but you should call us to discuss in more detail.

The IQAir HealthPro 100 provides the best possible levels of performance for coarse, fine and ultra-fine dust removal. Choose the IQAir HealthPro 100 when airborne particles are your only concern.
IQAir's GC Series is designed to capture chemical contamination, yet also includes a HEPA H11 Class filter. The IQAir GC uses the same technology as the IQAir GCX, which is the same system used in leading research organisations. The GC, however, is around half the price and most suitable for Dental laboratories.
