The IQAir® GC AM is specifically designed for individuals or companies who need to control Ammonia and Ammonia Based Chemical Compounds. The IQAir® GC AM contains 11 lbs of Granulated Impregnated Carbon in addition to having a "Class A" HEPA Pre-Filter.

The IQAir® GC AM has been customized for wide spectrum molecular and particulate contaminant control. Just like a professional gas mask, the IQAir® GC AM maximizes ammonia filtration and a wide variety of gaseous chemicals and odors with its advanced filter cartridge design. While ammonia and odor control is a particular strength of this system, the IQAir® GC AM also offers excellent filtration of particles.

Controls Ammonia and Ammonia Based Chemical Compounds

The IQAir® GC AM is the most advanced air purifier for the control of ammonia, amines, ammonia-based odors and particulates. Tobacco protein is a precursor to amines present in the smoke particulate phase of tobacco smoke.

Compact Particulate, Ammonia and Odor Control

The GC Series is the world’s most effective compact room air purifier for the control of gaseous chemicals. The GC line relies on an interchangeable cartridge design for optimized gaseous pollutant control. Thanks to its selectable cartridges, the IQAir GC Series is able to meet almost any moderate gas phase removal need in residential or commercial environments.

Gas Cartridge Technology

The IQAir® GC AM uses four filter cartridges which holds 11 lbs. of gas phase media consisting of Granulated Impreganted Carbon. The cylindrical shape of these cartridges allows for optimum contact between the air and gas phase media, which ensure high removal efficiencies. The large surface area of the cartridges enables high air flow rates. Since IQAir gas filter cartridges are reusable, replacing them is not only economical, but also environmentally friendly.

High-Efficiency Particulate Filtration

The particulate filtration of the IQAir® GC AM complements the ammonia filtration process by removing over 97% of particles before they can reach the gas phase media. This increases the efficiency and life of the media by preventing its pores from clogging. The GC units' overall filtration efficiency for particles is greater than 99% at .3 microns. The post filter is electrostatically charged to trap particulate pollutants and microorganisms (bacteria and viruses).

EN 1822 Tested & Certified

Released in the year 2000, EN 1822 is the world's most advanced and stringent air filter standard for HEPA filters. IQAir's HyperHEPA™ filter elements are currently the world's first filters in an air cleaner to have been type-tested inside the IQAir housing by an independent filter testing laboratory (Filtech Laboratories, Switzerland). Many hospitals, laboratories and high-tech manufacturers, such as Intel®, already require their filter suppliers to supply them with EN 1822 certification. It is this basis for IQAir’s ability to capture up to 100 times more particles than conventional HEPA cleaners. IQAir therefore has the distinction of producing one of the world’s most efficient HEPA air purifiers in its class.

Certified Performance

In an industry where most air purifiers do not actually meet their manufacturers’ claims, IQAir tests and certifies each and every IQAir® GC AM. Each IQAir® GC AM is tested for particle filtration efficiency, filter leakage and air delivery. Each IQAir® GC AM comes with its very own two-page Certificate of Performance, detailing the test results for that specific machine, which an IQAir team member fills out by hand.

Triple Seal Design

The efficiency stated for most air cleaners is purely theoretical. Internal leakage drastically reduces the actual efficiency of most air cleaners. However, IQAir systems feature patented triple sealing technology. First, a unique process ensures that the filter media is 100% sealed in the filter frame. Second, our patented 3D UltraSeal ensures perfect sealing between filter frame and housing. Third, individual seals on each housing module ensure an air tight housing. As a result, IQAir® systems have an actual system efficiency which is higher than the theoretical efficiency of conventional air cleaners.

Featured Filter Technology

  1. Micro- and nano-particle filtration: Eliminates micro- and nano-particles such as allergens, smoke, bacteria and viruses.
  2. Cartridge-based activated carbon adsorption: Eliminates ammonia and ammonia based chemical compounds.
  3. Cartridge-based chemisorption: Absorbs harmful chemicals by an oxidation process inside the granulated impregnated carbon.
  4. Micro-charged filtration: Eliminates activated carbon and chemisorption abrasion particles through a charged fiber structure.
