Ethylene Gassing for Ripening Mango
The Catalytic Generator simply, safely, and reliably makes ethylene gas in sufficient volume for mango ripening, for 12 to 48 hours.
Fresh Air is Important
Because the respiration rate of ripening mango is so high, it is important to have adequate fresh air supply to a ripening room. Using a carbon dioxide (CO2) sensor can easily help you keep CO2 levels to under one-half of one-percent (0.5%)
Relative Humidity is Also Important
It is wise to maintain relative humidity (RH) at levels between 90 and 94%. This minimizes weight loss by the fruit, which in turn increases saleable weight and shelf life, and also provides for better-looking fruit.

You can also precisely control RH and CO2, and even gas the fruit without the ripener being onsite.
