Who Is Kronos?
Kronos was created in 2002. It was funded by the US military to develop electrostatic air movers. The company eventually moved into the consumer air purifiers industry.
It started as a product development company, which invented and changed how air is filtered and sterilized. The company focuses on developing, marketing, and selling its proprietary air purification technology. Kronos uses high voltage patented technology without using traditional HEPA filters.
Kronos recently filed for a provisional patent that entails an innovative facemask that features antimicrobial and anti-cell phone radiation protection. The company plans to file for additional patents to improve its existing technology and enter a new market segment. However, they plan to continue marketing their air purifiers and other products.
