Designed for heavy-duty particle, virus, and allergen control, the IQAir Cleanroom H13 Air Purifier delivers exceptionally clean air quickly and effectively in critical environments. This IQAir purifier is ideal for use in cleanrooms up to Class 100, pharmaceutical laboratories, infection control units, TB isolation rooms, and other critical environments where contamination control is a priority. In addition, the Cleanroom H13 can be used in residential environments to help relieve severe allergy and asthma symptoms.
Ideal for Contamination Control in Critical Environments
IQAir Cleanroom H13 HEPA Air Purifiers have been designed specifically for the removal of airborne particles and viruses in sensitive environments. These air purifiers feature the highest Clean Air Delivery Rates (CADR) and the longest filter lives of any IQAir purification system. To allow for maximum air filtration and delivery, IQAir Cleanroom air purifiers contain no gas phase filtration. Therefore, these air purifiers will not address airborne chemical, odor, and gas pollutants. If you are looking for an air purifier to address ultra-fine particle pollutants as well as chemical, odor, and gaseous pollutants—please consider the IQAir GCX Series Air Purifiers.
By regulation, cleanrooms require the use of HEPA air purifiers that carry much higher CADR rates than conventional household air purifiers in order to control and prevent contamination. Adhering to these requirements, the IQAir Cleanroom H13 Air Purifier filters the air roughly 50 percent faster than the company's bestselling residential air cleaner, the IQAir HealthPro Air Purifier. Additionally, this IQAir purifier delivers at least two complete air changes per hour in spaces measuring up to 1,200 square feet and provides better-than-HEPA filtration using IQAir's patented HyperHEPA filter.
Using the IQAir Cleanroom H13 Air Purifier can be a valuable part of an effective contamination control strategy when combined with other recommended maintenance strategies, such as atmospheric control, material and supply control, gowning of personnel, and physical activity control.
Infection Control in Hospitals
Airborne pathogens in healthcare environments pose a high risk to patients with sensitive immune systems. Airborne microorganisms can not only complicate recovery from surgery, but can also lead to life-threatening infections, which costs healthcare service providers hundreds of millions of dollars every year. In fact, in recent years, there has been a marked increase in hospital acquired infections (HAIs) caused by drug-resistant pathogens.
As a result of this increase, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has emphasized the importance of practicing preventive infection control measures to reduce the risk of HAIs. Among the recommended guidelines, the CDC recommends using industrial-grade HEPA filter air purifiers for ultra-fine particle and microbiological control. The IQAir Cleanroom H13 HEPA air cleaner is an ideal solution for air purification and airborne infection control in hospital settings.
Positive and Negative Pressure Environments
Each IQAir Cleanroom H13 Air Purifier can be used as an independent air cleaning and recirculation system. In addition, it can be combined with IQAir's ducting adapter accessories—the IQAir InFlow W125 and IQAir OutFlow W125—to create positive and negative pressure environments.
Creating positive pressure environments in critical areas helps protect against contaminants entering from adjacent rooms. Creating negative pressure environments helps contain harmful particles, such as microorganisms, viruses, allergens, and other particles, in a particular area. Both of these practices are often used in applications such as TB isolation rooms, controlled environments for medical device manufacturing, and isolation rooms for patients with compromised immune systems.
Relieves Severe Allergy and Asthma Symptoms at Home
In addition to cleanroom and medical environment applications, the IQAir Cleanroom H13 Air Purifier can be used to combat severe allergy and asthma symptoms in many residential environments. This IQAir air purifier boasts virtually all of the same design features as IQAir's residential HealthPro Series models. These features include advanced HEPA filtration, energy-efficient operation, hassle-free filter replacement, durable construction, and more.
The Cleanroom H13 Series air purifier displays higher CADR ratings and produces more air changes per hour than the HealthPro Series. That means you will get relief for your severe allergy and asthma symptoms faster and maintain that relief for longer periods of time.
IQAir's Triple-Seal Filtration System
Each IQAir Cleanroom H13 HEPA Air Purifier features patented, triple-sealing filter technology to ensure that your system always removes 99.97% of airborne particles sized 0.3 microns and larger. Oftentimes, the efficiency stated for air cleaners is purely theoretical and may be inflated because of internal air leakage. This can drastically reduce the actual filtration efficiency of the system. The IQAir Cleanroom H13 Series air cleaner puts a stop to air leakage in three ways:
- First, a unique sealing process ensures that the air purifier's filter media is 100% sealed in the filter frame.
- Second, the patented 3D UltraSeal ensures perfect sealing between filter frame and the H13 Series model's housing.
- Third, individual seals on each housing module ensure airtight closing around the filters.
As a result, IQAir Cleanroom H13 air purifiers have an actual system efficiency that is higher than the theoretical efficiency of comparable air cleaners.
Long Filter Life
In addition to having a higher filtering efficiency than other air purifiers, Cleanroom H13 Series filters are designed to last longer than those of conventional HEPA air cleaners. Here's how:
While most air cleaners use pre-filters with particle efficiencies well below 20%, IQAir systems typically retain more than 90% of particle mass in their pre-filters. As a result, Cleanroom H13 filters are better protected from premature particle overload.
Independent Filter Stages
Conventional air purifiers often combine several filter types in one filter cartridge. As a result, the entire filter cartridge has to be replaced even if only one filter type is used up. Each filter in an IQAir purifier is separate and can be changed independent of the other filters.
To help cut manufacturing costs, many air cleaners use very little filter material. However, all IQAir Cleanroom H13 air purifiers use commercial-size HEPA filters that are able to collect more pollutants and last much longer. The pre-filter lasts 6 to 18 months and the HEPA filter lasts 2 to 4 years (based on 8-hour daily usage on speed 3).
To help you stay on top of filter life, the IQAir Cleanroom H13 Air Purifier features an intelligent filter life monitor. Unlike ordinary air cleaners that leave you guessing when to replace filters, the H13's intelligent filter life monitor measures filter life by actual use, speed settings, and air quality conditions. This monitoring system ensures the maximum filter yield and performance from your IQAir system.
High-Quality Fans, No-Draft Design
IQAir air purification systems use the highest-quality fan motors available. These centrifugal, backward curved fans have impressive 700 CFM (1200 m3/h) ratings. Because each fan is individually balanced within the unit and uses steel ball bearings, it can outlast other air purifier fans by years. Moreover, each internal fan contributes to the air cleaner's no-draft design. Most air purifiers return the air through a small outlet, which creates uncomfortable air drafts. The H13 system does not produce drafts because it evenly propels clean air upward through a 360-degree vented diffuser.
Exceptionally Quiet Operation
Because of its ultra-quiet design, this cleanroom air purifier produces more clean air with less sound than comparable air cleaners. That means running it consistently won't disturb your daily activities. The unique design of the Cleanroom H13 Series makes it unlike most air purifiers in that:
- The fan is located in the center, in between noise-absorbing filters.
- Double-walled housing reduces sound transmission.
- Eight shock absorbers hold the fan secure so that vibration is not transmitted to the housing.
- This system is suitable for even the most noise-sensitive environments.
- The H13 air purifier is virtually inaudible when operated at the lowest fan speed setting.
Many high-end air cleaners are made from sheet metal—which dents, scratches, and chips easily. In addition, many department store air purifiers use inferior plastics that can unexpectedly shatter. The IQAir Cleanroom H13 Air Purifier is built to last and to look great for a lifetime. This unit is manufactured using high-grade, injection-molded ABS plastic. A 3-millimeter (0.125 inches) housing thickness also makes the unit extremely impact-resistant.
In an industry where most air cleaners don't actually meet their manufacturers' claims, IQAir tests and certifies each system that comes off the assembly line. Each unit is tested against particle filtration efficiency, filter leakage, and air delivery standards. Every IQAir purifier is then issued its own two-page Certificate of Guaranteed Performance, detailing the test results for that machine.
