Source Capture

When used together with the FlexVac accessory, the IQAir GCX ChemiSorber air cleaning system captures fumes, dust and vapours directly at the source. An IQAir GCX ChemiSorber air cleaner can be used with the FlexVac as a free-standing and mobile unit or can be wall mounted through the use of the VM FlexVac kit.

Swiss Made

For generations “Swiss Made” has been shorthand for the very highest quality. The Swiss Made IQAir GCX ChemiSorber air cleaner clearly shows its pedigree. Extreme attention to detail, the finest materials and high precision and reliability throughout are the hallmarks of the IQAir range of filtration systems. Each IQAir air filtration unit is built to deliver years of outstanding service and performance.

Variable Fan Settings

All IQAir GCX ChemiSorber air cleaners have a powerful fan and high flow filtration media making them capable of efficient air movement in any given environment. The additional flexibility of six fan speeds enables a user to set the most efficient, low noise and low energy use via the control panel for any required airflow.

Tested and Certified

IQAir individually tests each stand-alone IQAir GCX ChemiSorber air cleaner to ensure that its performance meets the strictest specifications. The results of the tests are noted on a hand-signed Certificate of Performance, which is shipped with every IQAir GCX ChemiSorber air cleaning system.

Filtration Technology

GCX ChemiSorber Filtration Stages

The GCX achieves its filtration efficiencies over three filtration stages:

1. GCX Pre-Filter H11 (XL)
Removes particulate contamination before it can reach the ChemiSorber media. This extends the life of the ChemiSorber media and gives superb protection against particulate contamination.

2. GCX ChemiSorber Cartridge-Filter Set
14.6kg of the highest grade granular impregnated alumina is housed in four cylindrical shaped cartridges. The large surface area of the cartridges and cylindrical shape promotes high system efficiency.

3. GCX Post-Filter Sleeve Set
The final stage of the three filtration stages adds another HEPA class filter, which stops particles produced as a by-product of stage 2, being released by the system.
