Ryan® Ethylene Absorption Products from Sensitech

When it comes to the quality of fresh horticultural commodities, temperature management and ethylene absorption go hand-in-hand. While good temperature management is always critical for maintaining the quality of perishable food, ethylene is yet another quality-influencing variable to be considered. Ethylene is used to promote faster and more uniform ripening of produce that has been picked at the mature-green stage. However, exposure to ethylene can have a detrimental effect on the quality of fruits, vegetables and ornamentals that are classified as having a moderate-to-high ethylene production rate. For example, ethylene removal is recommended in long-term controlled-atmosphere (CA) storage of apples and pears; it is particularly important to eliminate ethylene when storing avocados, kiwifruit, persimmons, carnations and other commodities that are extremely sensitive to ethylene.


Sensitech’s  line  of  Ryan®  Ethylene  Absorption

products,  consisting  of  filters  and  sachets, provide a cost-effective way to reduce the impact of ethylene on fresh horticultural commodities. Working  with  refrigerated  air  circulation,  Ryan Ethylene Filters, which come in multiple sizes, helps purify the air within road, land and sea containers. Ryan Ethylene Sachets help protect produce from the effects of ethylene inside individual shipping packages where air circulation is not available.

Postharvest changes in fresh produce cannot be fully stopped, but they can be slowed within limits. The use of ethylene absorbers, such as Ethylene Absorption Products has shown an effective method for reducing ethylene transport and storage of fresh produce.

Ryan Ethylene Filters contain a mixture of natural

clays  and  potassium  permanganate (KMnO4)

and  are  designed  to  be  effective  in  reducing ethylene, and acting as a disinfectant and anti- microbial agent. Filters need not come in direct contact with produce, which minimizes residue. Ryan  Ethylene  Filters  are  safe  for  use  with organic products.

Absorbing ethylene from the atmosphere around the commodity is a preferred method for slowing produce deterioration.


Ethylene Absorption  Products


Ryan  Ethylene  Sachets  are  designed  for  individual

package usage, contain the same natural clays and are as environmentally sound as Ryan Ethylene Filters. Sealed in a 5-gram, teabag-size pouch, one sachet in an individual carton will reduce ethylene, ensure airborne spore reduction and help to keep produce fresher from the packer to the end user. Ryan Ethylene Sachets are packaged in material safe for incidental contact with food; if the sachet is exposed to high humidity, the printed inks will not bleed onto the harvested commodity, and will allow ethylene gas through for oxidization to take place.
