Ethylene Cover | Pineapples and Berries


The Ethylene Cover is designed to eliminate ethylene and other volatiles emitted by non-refrigerated fruits like pineapple which causes them to be ripe and deteriorate faster. The cover ensures the product’s freshness and quality while extending its shelf life. When the Ethylene Sachet cannot fit in a box, the Ethylene Cover can be used as an alternative. It is placed on top of the pallets and is then quickly removed at the destination if necessary. The Ethylene Cover can be used as a supplement for container filters. As only two filters can be placed in the air intake of the container evaporator, the filter may be insufficient when there is an increase in autonomy, or a lower balance of ethylene emitted and eliminated is required, the cover is a go-to solution.

The Ethylene Covers are a perfect solution to prolong the post-harvest life span of apples, pears, and other high-emission products. With our technical services, we can help determine and design the ideal sized cover for each application based on accessing criteria such as the type of atmosphere (AC, ULO, Dynamic), duration of storage, weight per pallet or bin, kind of fruit, etc. Its even distribution throughout the container is based on its centralized filtration, which is an improved version based on past covers. The cost is extremely competitive compared to treatment with 1-MCP.


The Ethylene Absorber is ideally used for applications that require a large volume of granulate and protection from moisture. The Ethylene Cover can be used to replace tube filters in reefer containers by distributing them throughout the containers. This is proven to be a more effective method to reduce contaminants while not affecting the artificial ripening process at the same time. It is a cost-effective solution that enables users to transport riper pineapples to destinations that are further while ensuring the quality of the fruits, preventing spoilage.
