Reducing Ethylene Gas In Commercial Cold Storages
Have you ever wondered why fresh produce spoils so quickly in cold storage warehouses? It’s because of ethylene gas. Some fruits and vegetables naturally release ethylene gas, accelerating the ripening process of other produce. This can lead to a quick loss of quality in your stored crop. Fortunately, there are ways to mitigate the effects of ethylene gas and keep your food fresh longer. First, let’s examine how modern air purification systems can help scrub ethylene gas from the environment.
What Is Ethylene Gas?
Ethylene gas is an odorless gas found in many fruits and vegetables. As the fruit ripens, it releases ethylene gas into the air, which can cause other fruit or vegetables to ripen prematurely if they come in contact with it. As a result, it can lead to spoilage, so eliminating ethylene gas from a warehouse or commercial cold storage is essential for adequately preserving produce.
How Does Air Purification Help?
Air purifiers work by filtering out or killing harmful particles from the environment. This includes mold, ethylene gas, and bacteria. In commercial cold storage, these air purifiers act as ethylene filters or scrubbers by trapping or killing ethylene molecules. This keeps the air clean and ensures minimal ripening in your warehouse or commercial cold storage.
The Benefits Of Air Purification Systems
Using an air purifier with ethylene-scrubbing capabilities lets you rest assured that all traces of this damaging gas have been removed from your environment. This means less spoilage in your warehouse or commercial cold storage facility and fewer losses due to spoiled produce. Additionally, many modern air purifiers come equipped with automatic cleaning cycles, allowing them to run independently without needing manual intervention every day or week. This makes them incredibly convenient and cost-effective solutions for keeping your space free from any unwanted particles or gases.
Finding The Best Ethylene Scrubbers
When choosing the best ethylene scrubbers, you should consider the following factors:
- The size of your space
- The type of contaminants you need to remove
- Treat all surfaces with the purifier. (not just near the cleaner, but all surfaces)
- Require low electricity usage
- Monitor the levels of the unit’s production 24/7
- Have a sanitizer created and output from the cleaner itself, or else the air will only be purifying.
- Organic and no chemicals consumed.
- Be safe while people are present
- Offer manual adjustments to the unit’s power
If you have commercial cold storage, you will need the best ethylene scrubbers covering significant square footage. In addition, if you are trying to remove pathogens, allergens, smoke, or odors, you will need a technology that can remove these contaminants 24/7 safely. Furthermore, consider AirROS surface and air purification systems that utilize ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species) technology if you want a device that can sanitize all surfaces.
In conclusion, air purifiers can be a great way to keep your warehouse or cold storage facility free from spoilage caused by ethylene gas buildup. They are reliable solutions that are easy to maintain and operate while being incredibly cost-effective compared to other methods, such as chemical treatments or manual labor costs associated with regularly cleaning contaminated areas manually. Therefore, investing in an effective air purification system will pay off in the long run!
No matter your needs, AirROS technology can help you create a healthier environment for ethylene removal! While many types of air purification technology are on the market, AirROS is our recommended method for purifying the air and sanitizing surfaces 24/7. It effectively kills ethylene, mold, including E.coli, salmonella, listeria, coronavirus (COVID), viruses, and other pathogens, and odor.
