One shot filtration philosophy

QleanAir was founded in 1988 and has ever since worked with solutions dedicated to healthy indoor air. We started out targeting tobacco smoke, a complex and highly toxic compound that needs to be captured instantly to protect non-smokers and to eliminate its odor. Our cleanroom solutions and freestanding air cleaners all embrace the same one-shot filtration philosophy. Our headquarters are based in Stockholm, Sweden, and we more than 150 employees and partners in over 30 countries on four continents. Manufacturing and services, and parts of administration and sales are performed through partners.
