The Covid-19 virus is approximately 0.125 micron in size. The HyperHEPA technology in our air purifiers remove particles as small as 0.003 micron at 99.5% efficiency, so it will remove the Corona Virus. Please see “How IQAir can help in the fight against the Novel Coronavirus?“

# 1 Rated Air Purifier
A HealthPro® air purifier from the IQAir Group (Switzerland) can help to protect your health from harmful airborne contaminants in your home or at work.
Many ordinary HEPA air purifiers on the market can filter out some airborne contaminants, however, they are not effective at removing tiny ultra-fine particles, which are the most harmful to your health.
Up to 90% of all the airborne contaminants we breathe consist of ultra-fine particles. These ultra-fine particles can include cigarette smoke, dust, pet dander, pollution particles, bacteria and viruses.
Ordinary HEPA filters can only filter particles of 0.3 microns or larger, however, IQAir’s HyperHEPA® filtration is tested and certified to filter particles down to 0.003 microns. This is 10x smaller than a virus and 100X smaller than particles that can be filtered with ordinary HEPA filters.
Many ordinary HEPA filters claim filter efficiency of 99.97% for particles of 0.3 micron or larger, however, this only applies to the efficiency of the filters and not the Total System Efficiency (TSE). Many times the Total System Efficiency of these systems are closer to 50% due to air leakage. IQAir always refer to Total System Efficiency, which is tested and certified at 99.5% for particles down to 0.003 microns in size and 99.97% for particles down to 0.3 microns in size.
IQAir HyperHEPA® filters have been type-tested and classified in accordance with the world’s most stringent HEPA filter test: EN 1822. The test shows that IQAir’s HEPA filter not only meets the HEPA standard, but that it exceeds it.
In independent laboratory tests done by the accredited laboratory Interbasic Resources Inc., several air purifiers available on the free market were purchased and tested for their filter efficiency and only the HyperHEPA® filtration technology used in the IQAir HealthPro 250 air purifier, was able to trap more than 99% of virtually all types of airborne pollutants.
Since the IQAir HealthPro 100 air purifier and HealthPro 150 air purifier features identical HyperHEPA® particle filters used in the HealthPro 250 air purifier, similar results can also be expected from these models.
IQAir has a history going back to 1963 and specialises in technology solutions that help protect people from airborne pollutants. IQAir has received numerous awards for its air purifiers and air filters. IQAir also engages in international projects that create ultra-clean living and working environments.
IQAir’s vision is to assist people in living longer, healthier and more productive lives by helping them breathe the cleanest, healthiest air possible.
