The extraordinary performance of the IQAir GCX Series begins with the highest quality, exceptionally porous, activated bituminous-coal carbon in its 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 for anyone allergic to coconut. IQAir does not use zeolite, another less effective and less expensive filtration medium. The superior activated carbon media in the GCX Series is blended with chemisorbers that target volatile organic compounds in the air, including formaldehyde. The IQAir GCX Series also features 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.
Never before has this level of gaseous contaminant control been more versatile, powerful and compact than with the IQAir GCX Series. Compared to the GC Series, the GCX Series features up to 110% more filtration media yet provides greater airflow and longer filter service life. With up to 31 pounds of specially formulated gas-phase filter media, the IQAir GCX Series offers the most powerful gas-phase air filtration systems in the IQAir compact stand-alone product lineup. The GCX Series also features advanced anti-tampering features that prevent the unauthorized access to filters or disconnection of the system in public areas.
