Kronos Air Technologies and Bath Iron Works received a contract from the Office of Naval Research (US) to study the Kronos (TM) device for several applications on ships and submarines. Because it can be designed in many shapes and sizes and has extremely low weight, ventilation systems on the ship may be enhanced. The virtually silent operation of the device and the ability to remove dust and pathogens from the air stream may enhance ship cleanliness and air quality. Information gathered from this research may have broad applications in the military (submarines and surface ships) and commercial sectors.
The Kronos(TM) device accelerates and treats air in a 'gentle' but effective way by producing a dense flow of ions that work silently inside the device and do not allow foreign gases and living organisms to escape. Mutating bacteria and viruses have become antibiotic resistant. However, the Kronos(TM) technology with its uniform shower of ions may destroy even the most resistant pathogens.
The same ion shower reaches every single molecule of hazardous gases and accelerates chemical reactions that should efficiently convert harmful chemicals to being harmless.
The device has the ability to move commercially viable amounts of air quietly with no moving parts. While doing so it has been proven to remove particulate materials, including pathogens, from the air stream. These and other proprietary advantages of the device make it perfect for use on ships and submarines in a variety of applications.
