The Business Case for Ethylene Control
There are a number of alternatives on the market to help minimize ethylene damage. Catalyx technologies recognizes that the "right" solution depends on a wide variety of factors.

Here are some factors we consider when specifying our equipment:

  • What (type/variety) is being stored? How much? For how long?
  • What are the room dimensions? Where are the air handlers located?
  • What is the typical temperature? If CA, what is the oxygen range?
  • What is the desired ethylene range?

We use this information to determine the amount of ethylene being generated, and to size the equipment to provide the necessary ethylene uptake and minimum turnover (6-8 Air Changes/Day*). This is very important because even the best filter will be ineffective if air changes are not adequate to reduce ethylene levels.

* Research indicates 6-8 ACD are required to reduce ethylene by 90%.

In addition to effectiveness, it is very important to consider all the factors that will affect the true cost of any alternative.

Here are some costs that are frequently overlooked but can significantly impact the true cost of any solution:

  • Energy Costs (ex. Ventilation can significantly impact energy bills, especially in warmer climates and seasons in addition to putting more wear on your HVAC system)
  • Cost of Consumables
  • Safety Issues
  • Labor Costs

Catalyx technologies can help you evaluate the options when it comes to ethylene control and food safety.
