Product Description

The IQAir GC Multi-Gas Filter provides for a wide spectrum of air purification needs.


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.


Odours Controlled: pets, musky smells, cooking odours, paint odours,off-gassing from plastics, new carpets, smog, fumes, industrial pollution, tobacco smoke and general air pollution. Importantly -  Its  Multigas (MG) media will remove deadly nitrogen oxides (NOx).  This media is also found in the Healthpro 150/250 models and GCX-MG model.
