GENET Ethylene Generator


INDIA'S MOST TRUSTED ETHYLENE GENERATOR


GENET is a portable Ethylene Generator which produces ethylene gas from specially formulated ripening liquid. It enhances the ripening process in the tissues of stored fruits like Banana, Mango, Papaya, Citrus, Tomato, etc. It is placed inside a commercial ripening room where ethylene gas produced at a slow and even pace. This process results in the uniform ripening of all climatic fruits through conversion of starch into sugar, safely. This method of ripening using ethylene is approved by the FSSAI, Govt. of India as well as regulating agencies all over the world. Its technical features are as follows:



  

OPERATION:

  1. Place GENET inside the ripening room
  2. Fill the tank with the Ripening liquid GENETOL and put the cap on. Tank capacity is 1 liters. Do Not Overfill !!  Attention: Do not use any other liquid in Genet for 'ripening' as it will damage the machine. People who claim that their liquid can be used in Genet are making false claims to mislead you and you should be wary of such people.
  3. Plug GENET in the electrical connection 230V, 50 Hz and press the switch on button on the rear panel.
  4. Green LED starts to glow on the front panel, indicating that machine is now working
  5. Ethylene production starts automatically after reaching the working temperature (in about 15 - 20 minutes) and is signaled by YELLOW LED to start glowing on the front panel.
  6. Close the room for up to 24 hours to allow the stored fruits to receive ethylene gas and restart its ripening process.
  7. After first 24 hours, open the door of the ripening room and allow the captured gas inside to disperse in the atmosphere before entering the room to check the progress. You can now remove Genet to another room with raw fruit for ripening.
  8. Subsequently, the ripening room door may be opened 4-5 times every day till all fruits have ripened inside. Alternately, you can install wall mounted ethylene sensors with controller to measure and monitor gas concentration in each room.

Since ripening of Bananas takes 4-5 days, ripening rooms are constructed accordingly. A single unit of GENET Ethylene Generator can be used across all 4 ripening rooms, alternately. For multiple ripening rooms, you can buy more number of GENET ethylene generator. 


Both GENET & GENETOL are readily available with Agritech Equipment & Services Pvt. Ltd. We carry inventory of spare parts to rectify any fault in our equipment. We have fully functional lab in New Delhi India to provide these services.


Customers are cautioned against cheap imitations of Genet. These 'ethylene generators' have low grade workmanship, lack of consistency & quality and often mislead customers by making false claims. 



Advantages of GENET Ethylene Generator Vs Ripening Gas Cylinders / Canisters:


  • Low rate of gas introduction - releasing ethylene shots from cylinder is a flawed method of releasing gas
  • No laborious handling of bulky gas cylinders.
  • No risk of leakage of gas due to malfunctioning of valves
  • Generation of gas limited to the amount of ripening liquid in the tank hence no risk of explosion.
  • No need for releasing ethylene-nitrogen mixed gases - hazardous in confined spaces like ripening rooms etc.
  • No guess work in terms of number of dosage to be given.
  • Gas cylinders use and handling by customers governed by guidelines of Gas Cylinder Act, Govt. of India

Internationally, there have been reported instances of explosion of gas cylinders in ripening which resulted in loss of human life and property. These have been reported in the media and one can read about them on the internet.


Advantages of GENET Ethylene Generator Over Ethylene Spray Cans:


* Unreliable

* Misleading claims

* Lack of Consistency

* Unregulated
