  • Monitoring Ethylene (C2H4) and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) in Ripening Rooms

    As fruit and vegetables ripen, they release ethylene, a naturally occurring growth hormone. To be profitable and meet demands, commercial fresh produce companies need to speed up the ripening process in a uniform and predictable way, which is achieved by adding more ethylene in a controlled environment. Typically the fresh produce is placed in air-tight ripening rooms and ethylene is introduced ...

  • The beverage industry`s incorrect way of monitoring for CO2 leaks

    Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is the primary compressed gas used for beverages at major fast food chains. This gas is also used in restaurants, gas stations, and grocery stores. When CO2 leaks into a confined space or basement, this creates a very unsafe workplace for employees by lowering the breathable oxygen. History seems to repeat itself all too often while dealing with CO2. Due to the CO2 leaks ...
