Media, Pa.-based Global Cooling Inc. aims to take the guessing out of gassing with its ethylene sensors.
Designed to work with Catalytic Generators and cylinder gas, the sensors control ripening and de-greening to precise levels of ethylene gas, according to a news release.
By precisely monitoring the amount of ethylene gas released, the sensors can help reduce the use of gas and gassing supplies.
“Maybe the most important aspect of using the sensors for low-level gassing is that when using ‘just enough’ ethylene gas, you don’t unintentionally ripen the fruit in the adjacent rooms, and do not pollute your entire warehouse with ethylene gas,” Global Cooling’s Jim Still said in the release.
