“Atem” is the German word for breathe, and IQAir's new personal air purifier is as unique as its name. While standard room air purifiers are designed to clean the entire room, the IQAir Atem Personal Air Purifier works by enveloping you in super-purified air and creating a personal clean air zone around you. By delivering ultra-clean air directly into your breathing space, the IQAir Atem protects you from the myriad of particulate pollutants that are in the air – instantly, quietly and without a draft.

While most other personal air purifiers produce ozone (a known lung irritant) or simply blow contaminated air around without actually cleaning it, IQAir’s revolutionary Atem Air Purifier has been designed to capture pollutants without creating harmful by-products. If you have allergies, COPD or chronic respiratory illnesses, the IQAir Atem will become your new best friend, creating a personal clean air haven that your respiratory system will love.

Made from a patented combination of synthetic fibres, the Atem’s HyperHEPA filter contains an astonishing 32 sq. ft. of filtration media. This filter is able to capture 99% of particles 0.003 microns and larger, vastly out-performing every other personal air purifier on the market. While some personal air purifiers can remove standard pollutants such as dust, pollen, pet dander and mold spores, the IQAir Atem Air Purifier goes well beyond that to capture hazardous ultra-fine dust, dangerous combustion and smog particles, harmful office pollutants (e.g., photocopier and printer emissions), and even airborne bacteria and viruses.

The IQAir Atem Personal Air Purifier quietly gathers polluted air via the intake vents surrounding the circumference of the unit, and then delivers ultra-pure air directly into your breathing space via IQAir’s exclusive PureJet diffuser. The unique design of the diffuser allows you to direct the clean air into your breathing zone regardless of whether you are sitting, standing or lying down.

A standout feature on the IQAir Atem Personal Air Purifier is that the unit can be separated from the stand, permitting you to pack it in a suitcase when travelling. The compact and light-weight Atem is supplied with a dual-voltage power adaptor and 3 regional plugs, so that you can use it in any hotel room in the world. Simply place it on your bedside table while you sleep, adjust the diffuser to point towards your head, and rest easy knowing you are protected from airborne contaminants.


The IQAir Atem Personal Air Purifier features three fan speed settings that are adjusted by tapping the Atem logo on the side of the unit, providing you with total control over the unit’s air flow. IQAir’s new multiphase DC fan motor provides reliable and quiet operation, producing a mere 20 dB on low speed, easily allowing even the most sound-sensitive individuals to use it while sleeping or working. The housing of the IQAir Atem air purifier is made of non off-gassing, impact resistant, UV-stabilized ABS and PC plastics for safety, durability and ease of transportation.

The IQAir Atem Personal Air Purifier has a built-in filter life monitor, with the LED light beneath the diffuser flashing red to let you know when the filter is due for replacement. Changing the filter can be done in a matter of minutes with no tools required. Simply remove the unit from its stand, lay it on a flat surface and turn the locking ring until the back cover releases. Remove the old filter, insert the new one, replace and lock the cover, and affix the unit back onto its stand.

By downloading IQAir’s free Atem App, you can unlock extra features and control your Atem Personal Air Purifier via your mobile device. The three pre-set fan speeds can be adjusted remotely by using the App, and you can even customize airflow rates to suit your personal taste. By activating the Atem’s special onboard sensor through your app, the unit will turn off when you walk away from it, and automatically turn back on when you return. This will not only save energy, but also preserve your filter life. The App also allows you to customize light/sound settings and get filter life notifications sent to your phone.

Note that the IQAir Atem Personal Air Purifier is not a substitute for a high-quality room air purifier. It only delivers clean air to a localized area and offers no protection from chemicals and gases. However, it is ideal for those who want to create a personal clean air breathing zone while sleeping, watching tv or working at a desk. It’s compact design and portability also make it perfect for bedside use in hotels or when visiting friends and family.
