Product Description

IQAir Air Purifier for Safe Amalgam Removal 

The IQAir Cleanroom HG FlexVac is the ideal Air Purifier for Safe Amalgam Removal. The unit is specifically developed to protect patients and dental staff from the exposure of mercury vapours and other toxins during the removal of amalgam fillings.

High-Efficiency Air Cleaning

IQAir has provided effective solutions for capturing microorganisms and chemical substances for over 30 years. The Swiss-made systems excel in filtering chemical pollutants and microbiological aerosols commonly found in dental settings.

Proven Effectiveness

A study published in the British Dental Journal verified the effectiveness of IQAir systems, concluding that the IQAir air cleaning system with FlexVac significantly reduces bioaerosol load during dental procedures. The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) also recommends the IQAir air cleaner with FlexVac for optimal protection when removing mercury amalgam fillings.

Filtration Technology

Powerful Certified Performance

Each IQAir Cleanroom Hg system is individually tested and certified, guaranteeing a minimum total system efficiency of 99.95% for airborne particles ≥ 0.3 µm and a maximum air delivery rate of 400 m³/h. IQAir systems utilize 100% ozone- and ion-free filtration technologies.

  • Cleanroom Hg Filter: Contains 2.5 kg of special granulated filter media for effective mercury vapour filtration.

Individually Tested and Certified

Every IQAir Air Purifier for Safe Amalgam Removal is individually tested in Switzerland to ensure a minimum filtration efficiency of 99.95% for airborne particles ≥ 0.3 µm. The unit effectively removes dental amalgam vapours and infectious droplets at the point of origin during procedures. Multiple scientific studies and independent test reports support the system's effectiveness.

The IQAir Air Purifier for Safe Amalgam Removal is designed for continuous operation, ensuring non-stop protection.

Mercury vapour can be released during the placement and removal of dental amalgam fillings. As mercury is odourless and transforms to gas at room temperature, exposure can often go unnoticed.

Effective Source-Capture Technology

The IQAir Air Purifier for Safe Amalgam Removal captures mercury vapour and drills aerosols at the source. The flexible suction duct removes harmful contaminants before they can be inhaled or dispersed in the ambient air. This filtration technology's ability to reduce room levels of mercury and particulates has been documented in a research report by the Institute of Hygiene at the University of Heidelberg, Germany.
