ERIS Filter for Ethylene and Pathogen control during Transportation of Fruit, Vegetable or Flowers

565

Published on

Preserving your perishables from ethylene and airborne bacteria during transportation is a very important link in providing quality perishables to the end consumer.

When fruits, vegetables and flowers are harvested far away from the place that is the consumption destination, providing proper transportation conditions brings both a better value for the consumer, and higher profits for the merchant.

Apart from general requirements for ethylene and bacteria control equipment (cost effectiveness, low maintenance, user friendly, odor removal), solutions for preserving perishables during transportation need to have few special features. Among these desirable features are; small size, freedom from an external power source, and ease of installation and replacement.
Regular solutions for preserving perishables in warehouses are not practical for the same purpose in sea and truck containers. That’s why Miatech has developed a special solution for preserving perishables during transportation, which makes this process very easy and very effective.

  4. 4. MIATECH SOLUTIONS, A PIECE OF THE PUZZLEMiatech Manufactures and Markets: • Produce Misting • Service Case and Ice Table Humidification • Water Purification • Warehouse, Greenhouse and Cold Room Humidification • Air-pathogen and Ethylene Removal Solutions • Outdoor Cooling (People Misters)
  5. 5. AIRBORNE PATHOGEN AND ETHYLENE REMOVALWhat is Ethylene?• Natural growth hormone• Produced by plant tissue as well as thecombustion of synthetic materials• It’s invisible, cannot be seen, smelled or felt• Not harmful or toxic to humans• Used in ripening and degreening rooms
  6. 6. AIRBORNE PATHOGEN AND ETHYLENE REMOVALWhat are the effects of Ethylene to freshproduce?• Discoloration and black spots• Leaves separate from parent plant• Ripening procedure is accelerated.• Shrinkage and weight loss• Unpleasant odor
  7. 7. AIRBORNE PATHOGEN AND ETHYLENE REMOVALEthylene and cut flowersWhat are the flowers damage symptoms?• Flowers closing prematurely,commonly referred as “going tosleep”.• Flowers/leaves falling off.• Yellowing of leaves.• Rapid flower opening,commonly referred as “blownhead”.
  8. 8. AIRBORNE PATHOGEN AND ETHYLENE REMOVALDamage by Airborne PathogensMillions of $ worth loses are caused each year by AirbornePathogens during storage or transit of fresh produce. Most damaging Airborne Pathogens are bacteria, mold and fungi like botrytis, penicillium italicum and penicillium digitatum.
  9. 9. AIRBORNE PATHOGEN AND ETHYLENE REMOVALThe Problem:During transportation intrucks or containers, air circulation is causingdamage by ethylene and airborne pathogen concentration.

  18. 18. AIRBORNE PATHOGEN AND ETHYLENE REMOVALEris FilterScientifically Proven – Field TestedField Test SummaryTest was organized by Scientific Air Solutions, Dr. Rick Falkenberg.Eris filter was placed in an ocean container transporting fresh produce fromCalifornia to China. Results from this test show a significant reduction inmicrobial count with the use of the Eris Filter.Pre shipment air samples (California) ranged from 250-395 CFU/m3. Postshipment air samples (China) ranged from 80-110 CFU/m3.See spatial map following.
