Principle of ripening and working cycle
The plant is generally operated on 4-6 days ripening cycle. This 4-6 days ripening cycle comprises of;

  • Operation: 14° to 23° C and >90% RH. Pull down time (16-20hrs) to 16° to 18° C

  • Ethylene injection, after 24 hrs at constant room temperature of 18° or 19° C and >90% RH

  • Holding period 16-12 hrs (total 24 hours from start of ethylene injection) temperature held at 18° or 19° C and 90% RH

  • Ventilation after 24 hrs after ethylene injection. Ethylene and CO2 is expelled out and fresh air is injected in cold room. CO2 level not to exceed 5000ppm during ripening process.

  • Holding period for 3-4 days till coloration. Temperature can be reduced gradually to 14° to 16° C for enhancing the shelf life of the Fruit.

  • Air distribution system for uniform ripening of banana in palletized crates with Suitable air bypass sealing system for the crates.
