Ethylene scrubber will reduce ethylene levels in cold storage to reduce shrink and extend shelf life. The unit holds 100 lbs. of the patented Oxidation Media. The media can effectively lower ethylene gas readings in storage areas, depending on the commodities being stored. The Patented oxidation Media has also be proven to kill molds, rots, bacteria and remove odors.
Each Ethylene scrubber is equipped with two blower which sucks air from bottom of scrubber and through it back to cold room from top. When air will pass through the Oxidation Media it removes Ethylene, molds, rots, bacteria and odors.
Each unit uses 100 pounds of media to get the proper air speed across the pellets for the reaction time needed to remove the ethylene gas. The media start out a bright purple and turn brown from the outside in. You need to crush a half a handful of media after about 2 months to see how much purple is left. Then check the media about once a month. When there is 25% purple and 75% brown it is time to change the media.
Media life varies depending on commodity and storage conditions. A single charge of media can last three to four months or longer with produce and up to a six month with floral. At the end of your season, if the pellets aren’t used up, simply store them away in the original container and use them the next season.
You can place the unit most anywhere in the room, as the units are on casters, just make sure you don’t block the air flow. As media is sensitive to water particles operator have to take care to place scrubber in such a place that minimum humid air will penetrate into scrubber for longer life of Oxidation Media. The unit works in conjunction with your cooling system air movement.
