Product Description

IQAir GCX Multigas NEdownload blueair brochure

For larger areas +100m2, the IQAir GCX series is a high capacity particulate, chemical and odour control air purifying system. It is available in a variety of filter media to best cater to each situation it may encounter in the work place. It generates from 60 to 540 cubic metres of purified air per hour.

 Its Multigas (MG) media will remove deadly nitrogen oxides (NOx).  This media is also found in the Healthpro 150/250 models and the GC-MG and model.

The media choice depends on the prevailing chemicals present. Please consult this Chemicals List to identify any other chemicals present in your operation and note the filter media required.

Depending on your particular air filter needs, you may require a mix of filter media to cover the chemical range. The choice of filter type is as follows:

  • Multigas (carbon/permanganate blend - broad spectrum)*
  • VOC (carbon only - alcohols, etc)
  • ChemiSorber (permanganate only - thiols, formaldehyde)
  • AM (for ammonia, amines)
  • AcidPro (for phenols, acids)

* MULTIGAS EXPLAINED: Charcoal is carbon. “Activated” charcoal is charcoal that has been treated with oxygen to open up millions of tiny pores between the carbon atoms, resulting in highly porous charcoal with surface areas of 300-2,000 square metres per gram. These so-called active, or activated, charcoals are widely used to ADSORB odorous or coloured substances from gases or liquids.

The word ‘adsorb’ is important here. When a material adsorbs something, it attaches to it by chemical attraction. The huge surface area of activated charcoal gives it countless bonding sites. When certain chemicals pass next to the carbon surface, they attach to the surface and are trapped.

Activated charcoal is good at trapping other carbon-based impurities ("organic" chemicals), as well as things like chlorine.

However, many other chemicals are not attracted to carbon at all -- sodium, nitrates, etc. -- so they pass right through. This means that an activated charcoal filter will remove certain impurities while ignoring others. That’s why IQ Air filters contain not only activated carbon but also granules of permanganate, which adsorbs chemicals not adsorbed by charcoal.

Once all of the bonding sites are filled, the filter stops working and must be replaced.

As the GCX also includes IQAir's HyperHEPA cartridge sleeve, the GCX unit is one of the most sophisticated air cleaning system for most commercial environments, providing 99% particulate capture at 0.3µ and 95% of particles at 0.003µ - medical grade air quality.

The GCX series alo incorporates anti-tampering features, preventing un-authorised access to filters or un-authorised disconnection of the system in public areas.

  1. IQAIR GCX Multigas 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Apr 2015

    "Bags of Oz is a small company importing and wholesaling leather handbags, shoes and boots. Our office is 100m2 open plan combined with our storage shelves stocking the products. As a result, we work in an environment where we are constantly exposed to the odours like smells of glues and tanning chemicals used in the leather as well as packaging materials. We were breathing in these chemicals and going home at night with the smell through our clothes. The IQ Air GCX MG has fixed the problem. The odours have gone, we have fresher air all day and we go home at night without any chemicals in our clothes. Great investment - I don't know why I didn't do it years ago. Tito, Director, Bags of Oz."
