IQAir CleanZone 5000 Series

Ultra-high performance air purifier

IQAir CleanZone 5000 Series air purifiers are the ultimate mobile air filtration systems, offering maximum airflow (up to 2 400 m3/h), high-efficiency and minimal noise.

In addition, the CleanZone 5000 series is extraordinarily flexible.

It can be configured for maximum particle filtration, or for particle filtration plus filtration of gases, chemicals and odors.

Product Overview

Proven performance against ultrafine particles

Ultrafine particles are smaller than 0.1 microns. By sheer number, about 90% of all airborne particles are this size. The primary source of ultrafine particles is combustion from motor vehicles, refineries, industrial plants and even cooking. Viruses are also ultrafine particles. The small size of ultrafine particles enables them to be easily inhaled, deposited into the lungs and absorbed into the blood.


They have been linked to heart attacks, strokes, asthma and even cancer. Manufacturers of ordinary air filtration systems claim only that their systems filter particles larger than 0.3 microns. IQAir is different. IQAir’s HyperHEPA filtration is proven and certified to filter up to 99.5% of all particles down to 0.003 microns – the smallest particles that exist. Independent testing by laboratories and government agencies verifies the effectiveness of IQAir technology against ultrafine particles. When it comes to protection against ultrafine particulates, IQAir is the proven choice.



Three models

The main filter module of the CleanZone 5000 can be individually configured for specific pollutants in any commercial environment. The base models available for particle, gas, chemical and odor control include:


CleanZone 5100: For maximum reduction of particulate matter and microorganisms, this system combines MERV 16 pre-filtration with a HyperHEPA 700 filter drum for ultimate particle control.


CleanZone 5200: For maximum reduction of gases, odors and particulate matter (including microorganisms), the 5200 features up to 72 kg of gas and odor filtration media plus exceptional particle control with MERV 16 pre-filtration and class H11 post-filter sleeves.


CleanZone 5300: For full-spectrum reduction of gases, odors, particles and microorganisms, the main filter module of this model includes up to 42 kg of gas and odor filtration media, plus a HyperHEPA 300 filter drum for extraordinary particle control.


Advanced particle filtration

IQAir CleanZone 5000 Series air purifiers combine powerful, certified MERV 16 pre-filtration with up to 17 square meters (surface area) of IQAir’s HyperHEPA filtration media. HyperHEPA is the only air cleaning technology tested and certified to effectively filter harmful ultrafine pollution particles down to 0.003 microns in size with an efficiency of 99.5%. These tiny particles are 100 times smaller than what is achieved with ordinary air filtration technology and up to 10 times smaller than a typical virus. At the pre-filtration stage, The CleanZone 5000’s MERV 16 rating is the highest certification given to an air filter by ASHRAE (the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers). The MERV 16 pre-filter removes more than 95% of all particles (0.3 microns and larger), including 85% of all particles down to 0.003 microns, before air is moved through additional HyperHEPA particle filtration or gas and odor filter cartridges.


Best media, superior filtration

The amazing performance of the CleanZone 5200 and 5300 models begins with the highest-quality, exceptionally porous activated bituminous-coal carbon in the gas-phase filtration cartridges.


This is not the lower-cost, high-dust carbon from coconut shells that many air purifiers use. That's good news if you're allergic to coconut. IQAir does not use zeolite, another less effective and less expensive filtration medium.


The superior activated carbon in the CleanZone 5000 models with gas and odor filtration is blended with chemisorbers that target other volatile organic compounds in the air, including formaldehyde.


In some configurations, IQAir activated carbon is complemented by pelletized aluminum oxide.


The alumina pellets are impregnated with potassium permanganate, forming a powerful combination to filter a wide spectrum of gases, odors and chemicals.


Multiple configurations

With three models and 10 optional configurations, the CleanZone 5000 offers a performance combination for almost every air quality problem.


The CleanZone 5100 is equipped with the IQAir HyperHEPA 700 filter drum for maximum filtration efficiency of fine and ultrafine particles.


The CleanZone 5200 is optimized for gas-phase pollution treatment, with 12 GCXL/S cartridges in six available configurations: MultiGas – for volatile organic compounds and many inorganic compounds VOC – for volatile organic compounds, hydrocarbons and solvents ChemiSorber – for inorganic compounds and some organic compounds (e.g., formaldehyde and sulfur dioxide) AM (ammonia) – for ammonia and amines AcidPro – for acids such as hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide, chlorine and sulfuric acid Hg (mercury) – for mercury vapors


The CleanZone 5300 includes a HyperHEPA 300 filter drum and is available in four gas-phase configurations: MultiGas, VOC, ChemiSorber and AM (ammonia).


Quietest in its class

Despite its high volume of airflow, the CleanZone 5000 is remarkably quieter than any other air purifier in its class.


The high-performance, electronically commutated, maintenance-free IQAir fan pushes air quietly and efficiently through all filter figurations.


The fan is fully isolated in a special fan housing that cuts noise to a minimum while allowing air to flow generously and powerfully through the system at all 10 fan speeds.


High volume, high efficiency

IQAir CleanZone 5000 Series moves more air (up to 2 400 cubic meters per hour) through more high-performance air filtration media than any other IQAir stand-alone air purifier, supplying even large environments with clean, medical-grade air.


This extraordinary capacity is made possible by integrating a powerful fan into every CleanZone 5000 model.


The fan is powerful enough to move large volumes of air through HyperHEPA particle filters and broad-spectrum gas and odor filters, depending on the model.

Two-stage modular approach

Most great ideas are simple, and the CleanZone 5000 Series modular design is a perfect example.


By designing the system as two separate modules, IQAir’s engineering team was able to create a flexible and superior lineup of high-volume air purifiers to meet every need.


All three models share the same powerful yet quiet fan, and the same efficient IQAir PreMax 500 MERV 16 pre-filter.


But a variety of main filter module (the second module) configurations allows for specific filtration solutions for specialized commercial air quality problems.


Unprecedented adaptability

Never before has an air purifier this powerful been available in this many configurations.


The CleanZone 5000 Series can be customized for maximum filtration of particulates, for control of volatile organic compounds, for formaldehyde, ammonia, mercury and even acids such as hydrogen sulfide or sulfur dioxide and other contaminants.


IQAir believes that when you make an investment in a commercial air purifier it’s important to get the exact filtration you need.


Upflow, downflow

Each CleanZone 5000 Series model can be oriented to provide airflow from bottom to top (“upflow”) or from top to bottom (“downflow”).

While upflow is more common, there are many good reasons to reorient a CleanZone 5000 Series to provide downflow.


For example, a downflow orientation may be desirable for treating indoor pollution such as tobacco smoke that tends to rise.


The CleanZone 5000 Series performs just as well in either direction.


Energy efficient

Even though the CleanZone 5000 is more powerful than other IQAir stand-alone systems, it still requires very little power.


At the very heart of this air purifier is the ultra-efficient centrifugal, high performance IQAir fan and its maintenance-free motor.


This amazing fan delivers an extraordinary rate of clean air continuously.


As a result, it costs very little to run the most advanced and effective air purifier in the world.


Swiss quality

Swiss Made is more than just a label of origin.


It is a sign of outstanding quality, uniqueness, superior design, innovation, precision and reliability.


In an industry where most air cleaners don't meet manufacturers' claims, we test and certify each and every IQAir air purification system.


All our manufacturing is done in our own state-of-the-art Swiss production facility on the pristine shores of the Lake of Constance.

By using the highest quality components, a dedicated team of highly skilled and extensively trained craftsmen and women, and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes refined over almost 50 years, IQAir is able to build the finest air purifiers in the world.


That’s how serious we are about quality.


Ultimate filtration

The CleanZone 5100 and 5300 models combine two of IQAir’s most powerful filtration media into a single high-capacity air purifier.


First, a MERV 16 filter module cleans the air of a minimum of 95% of all particles 0.3 microns in diameter of larger, and more than 85% of all ultrafine particles down to 0.003 microns, the smallest particles that exist.


After passing through the MERV 16 pre-filtration module, the cleaned air is then powerfully drawn through 10m2 square feet of advanced IQAir HyperHEPA® filtration media (23 m2 in the 5100 model).


This filters any remaining particles, with a total efficiency of 99.97% of all particles 0.3 microns or larger and 99.5% of all particles down to 0.003 microns in diameter.

HyperHEPA Filtration

CleanZone 5100 and 5300 models feature IQAir’s advanced HyperHEPA technology. This is the most advanced air filtration technology in the world and is proven and certified to be effective against ultrafine particles. The CleanZone 5200, designed primarily for gas-phase control, also includes high-efficiency particle filtration. All three models include the IQAir MERV16-rated PreMax 500 Filter Drum as part of the system’s fan module. The PreMax 500 pre-filter eliminates micro-particles such as pollen, mold spores and other contaminants, and also 85% of all ultrafine particles down to 0.003 microns in diameter.


Integrated control panel

The integrated control panel on every CleanZone 5000 Series air purifier is an advanced control system engineered specifically for this high-volume air purifier.


The digital control panel allows easy access to control the 10-speed fan, monitor filter life, set the timer, manage airflow units and check and modify pollution level settings.


The control panel can also be used to activate and manage password access.



Despite its superior, high-volume airflow and air filtration capabilities, a CleanZone Series air purifier is easy to move around to any location where it is needed.


Sturdy casters on the bottom of the CleanZone 5000 make it easy to roll into another large work environment where it can be plugged in and ready to go to work.


Remote control

A sleek and efficient handheld remote control makes it easy to manage your CleanZone 5000 Series air purifier from almost anywhere in the environment.


Setting the fan speed and even operating the timer controls is simple and doesn’t require direct access the CleanZone 5000 Series air purifier integrated control panel.


Pollution level adjustment

Pollution level adjustment controls are built into the Filter Life Monitor of the CleanZone 5000 Series, providing a more accurate calculation of remaining filter life.


The Pollution Level menu allows modifications for large dust, chemicals and fine dust. Adjustments can be made for tobacco smoke, the presence of gases and chemicals, and dusty environments.


100% Healthy technology

IQAir’s mechanical HyperHEPA® filtration technology is the safest, healthiest and most effective way to clean the air.


The IQAir CleanZone 5000 Series particle filters work together to remove more than 99.97% of all airborne particles 0.3 microns and larger (99% in 5200 model), without using unsafe or unproven technologies such as ozone generation, ionization, or ultraviolet radiation.


This is especially important considering the many hours a day that workers, customers and others spend breathing the air in the workplace.


The CleanZone 5000 Series delivers medical-grade air quality that will help protect the health of employees and customers and improve productivity and attendance.
