As a business that handles produce, a whiff of decay in your walk-in, storage warehouse, or transport truck is the smell of money drifting away into thin air. When produce idles in one place for any amount of time, a colorless and odorless gas starts to collect – ethylene gas. In your warehouse, it can mean the kiss of death – overripening otherwise salable fruits and vegetables.
But is spoilage of overripe produce just another of the postharvest losses that growers, transporters, and warehousers have to live with and manage? No! There’s a selection of air purifiers that work as the perfect ethylene gas scrubbers, and they can provide a whole list of other benefits for products and employees in your facility. Read on to discover Airocide air purification.
Airocide air purifiers use photocatalytic oxidation technology (or PCO) – a NASA-developed technology for eliminating unwanted organic particles from the air without releasing any dangerous emissions. Ethylene is an unstable organic gas, otherwise known as a volatile organic compound or VOC. When airborne VOCs like ethylene enter the chamber of an Airocide unit, a powerful PCO catalyst destabilizes and destroys them. All that circulates out of an Airocide unit is pure air, completely scrubbed of ethylene gas and other VOCs – slowing ripening inside your facility and protecting your produce and profits.
But, the entire family of Airocide air purifiers are much more than ethylene gas scrubbers. They provide comprehensive commercial air purification that defends products and employees. Eliminate the airborne spoilage bacteria and molds threatening your produce. Protect workers throughout your facilities by eliminating airborne viruses that cause illness. Provide absolute peace of mind in your back offices with 99.99% pure, clean air. A variety of Airocide units make it possible everywhere you need it – and we can design a system that fits facilities of every size.
