Kurin Systems is taking air purifying to the next level. It has designed the world’s largest and most powerful air purifier to address pollution problems in India and abroad. The 40-foot purifier, known as the Kurin City Cleaner, is designed to provide clean air to nearly 75,000 people living within a 3-kilometre radius of its location. The purifier works using nine stages of physical filters to clean out 99 per cent pollutants from the air, including PM 2.5 and harmful particles.

Beyond the City Cleaner, this Delhi-based company has developed a range of products to tackle harmful pollution from every angle; to purify the air in any situation from traditional purifiers for home and office to a range of portable purifiers that can be used by individuals as they walk or in their retrofitted vehicles.

The team at Kurin also use smart technology to offer homes and offices maximum benefits from its purifying systems. Unlike many other purifiers, Kurin’s products compute air quality data (inside and outside) and let the user manage air purification preferences using a mobile application.

Determined to take air purification to all income groups, Kurin has also developed Kurin Atom, an affordable, portable air purifier that can be used by individuals on the move. The compact purifier has a built-in motor and is fitted to a face mask filtering the air through three stages.

Kurin’s successes can be attributed to its patented Shibaura motors and unmatched filtration processes providing the highest CADR (Clean Air Delivery Rate) at affordable rates. The technology also includes laser sensors that can display accurate indoor air quality data and temperature and humidity levels almost immediately.

Kurin’s research and product innovation is led by founder Pavneet Singh Puri, also the maker of the world’s first Android Smart Watch. Puri, along with his associate Madhur Mehta, is working hard to expand their technology to tackle one of India’s biggest problems. Through his first-of-its-kind technology, Puri and his team hope to drive urban growth while seriously considering the health of the people and the planet.
