Ripening Gas Cartridge

Ripylene is derived from Ethylene which is a gas used to make Polyethylene. Ethylene is also a natural plant hormone, it accelerates ripening in climacteric fruits like Banana, Mango, Papaya and Sapota etc. This is a scientific way to ripen climacteric fruits and fruits have no residue of harmful chemicals and have an appetizing look with bright yellow peel colour and green tips. This is a completely natural process and use of Ethylene for ripening has been approved and accepted internationally.

Ripylene 200

We introduced this product as a substitute to bulky 47 litre cylinders. Each cartridge can ripe from 150 to 170 tons of fruit. It is easy to handle, use, transport, store and delivers better results as compared to 5% Ethylene and 10% Ethylene balanced Nitrogen cylinders.

  • 0.5 litre pure Ethylene cartridges
  • Weighs up to 2.5 kgs
  • Easy to handle
  • Low cost transportation and empty cartridges can be sent by courier
  • Cheaper than 5% and 10% Ethylene balanced Nitrogen cylinders
  • Can be retrofitted to ripening systems that are using old cylinders

FAQs on Ethylene

Is Ethylene banned for ripening?
Ethylene is the only natural ripening agent accepted internationally for commercial ripening and they are approved by FDA and FSSAI.

Is Ethylene harmful for fruits and consumers?
Ethylene is a natural plant hormone hence it’s not harmful. Commercial ripening mimics plant’s way of ripening the fruit.

Is Ethylene absorbed by the fruit?
Ethylene only triggers the ripening process, with sufficient amount of Ethylene, the fruit keeps ripening with increased rate of respiration.

How much Ethylene is needed for ripening?
Only trace levels (in ppb) are required for triggering ripening process. For commercial ripening we maintain 100 to 200 ppm concentration inside the ripening chambers which accounts for leakages in the chamber.

Is Ethylene dangerous?
LEL (lower explosive level) of Ethylene is 2.7% by vol. above which it becomes inflammable. Our controller and cans releases only the required gas for maintaining 100 to 200 ppm through out the doing period.

Are Ethylene cylinders risky?
We provide only CCOE approved cylinders with designed pressure at 500 bars and they are hydro leak tested at 300 bars. The gas is filled less than its 50% pressure capacity at 130 – 140 bars. This makes the cylinder safe for use provided the cylinders used with professional equipments.

Is it expensive compared to other ways of ripening?
Ripening by Ripylene is cheaper and least labour intensive than any other way of ripening. We have solutions for small scale to large scale fruit ripeners. Our methods and processes along with our support and guidance will ensure you with premium ripened fruit and flourishing business.
