Sure Ripe GeneratorSure Ripe


This innovative generator and Ethy-Gen® II Ripening Concentrate form the only one of its kind to be certified by TÜV Product Service of Germany. Designed for countries outside of North America. Converts one (1) quart of Ethy-Gen® II to ethylene continuously (over a 16 hour period) produces ethylene that is not under pressure in concentrations needed for fruit ripening.We continue to look for ways to improve our products and make ripening even easier and more efficient. One of our latest improvements is the Proper Operation Indicator Light. Making the ripening job even easier, an all-new control board powers this indicator light and monitors critical processes of the generator. A bright green light indicates that these processes are running correctly and ethylene production should be optimal. If anything falls outside of our parameters, then the board will shut the generator down and change the indicator light to red. NO RISK of ethylene explosion when used as directed (minimum room size is 43 cubic metres) Electrical specifications:230 VAC / 160 W / 50 - 60 Hz / 0.65 Amp Click here to download additional details on the Sure-Ripe® Generator.

Easy Ripe GeneratorEasy Ripe

Dependable, easy to use; just pour one or two quarts of Ethy-Gen® II and ethylene production quickly begins. Provides pressureless ethylene on a continuous basis for uniform ripening & degreening. Ethylene output is adjustable for multiple room sizes, which means the Easy-Ripe® can adapt to any ethylene PPM requirements and can be fine tuned. Can work with a computerized ripening room control system. Available in a wall-mounted version. Large 2½ quart reservoir. 43 cubic metre minimum room size. We continue to look for ways to improve our products and make ripening even easier and more efficient. One of our latest improvements is the Proper Operation Indicator Light. Making the ripening job even easier, an all-new control board powers this indicator light and monitors critical processes of the generator. A bright green light indicates that these processes are running correctly and ethylene production should be optimal. If anything falls outside of our parameters, then the board will shut the generator down and change the indicator light to red. We are now shipping limited quantities of Easy-Ripe® Generators with this Indicator Light and are gradually phasing in this improvement. All Easy-Ripe® units will be equipped within the next several years. Electrical specifications: 230 VAC / 160 W / 50 - 60 Hz / 0.65 Amp Conversion Rate Settings and approximate room size. 

1: 1 Quart of Ethy-Gen® II every 48 hours; 1,500 to 2,499 ft3 (43 - 70 m3)

2: 1 Quart of Ethy-Gen® II every 36 hours; 2,499 to 4,999 ft3 (71 - 141 m3)

3: 1 Quart of Ethy-Gen® II every 24 hours; 5,000 to 7,499 ft3 (142 - 212 m3) 

4: 1 Quart of Ethy-Gen® II every 12 hours; 7,500 to 12,000 ft3 (213 - 340 m3). 

It may be possible to use just one generator for a room that is larger than 12,000 ft3 LxWxH, 340 m3); it depends upon how tight the room is. We have found these setting to be applicable for most rooms and provide sufficient ethylene (150 - 300 ppm) to initiate the ripening process in bananas, tomatoes and other fruits (except citrus, which requires less than 10 ppm; for this, use our Citrus Generator). However, some ripeners prefer to take ethylene readings with an Air Sampling Kit and select the setting that produces the ethylene level desired. As always, please contact us if we can be of service.

Citrus GeneratorCitrus Generator

Extremely easy to use 

Operating Instructions are basic and simple; there are no explosion possibilities when following these easy instructions. Ethylene production is low as is needed for citrus degreening; also, it is adjustable to accommodate different room sizes and ethylene requirements (minimum degreening room size 43 cubic metres). Ethylene output is uniform for better fruit degreening. 2.5 quart Ethy-Gen® II Ripening Concentrate reservoir. We have two types of Citrus Generators, the Standard and the Modified, with our lowest possible ethylene output. Also, the Easy-Ripe Generator, with it''s larger ethylene production capacity, may be required for larger degreening rooms.

Tobacco Curing GeneratorTobacco Curing Generator

Less Yellowing Time: Cuts up to 15 hours off normal yellowing time and get higher quality, more valuable leaves.

Less Wilting and Drying Time: Cut up to 15 hours off normal wilting and drying time.

Evens Out Colour: Fewer green butts, green fibres and other "off" colours.

All Seasons: Dramatically improves curing for dry, wet or normal seasons.

Portable: One generator can serve as many as six curing systems.

Lower Curing Cost: Curing expenses are cut by £15 to £30 per cure.

Costs Less: Ethylene is the same regardless of whether you make it yourself or buy it ready made. Two quarts of Ethy-Gen® II Ripening Concentrate make at least 0.5 kg of ethylene and you can save up to 45% over cylinder gas cost.

Proven Results: University field tests prove that Tobacco Curing Generators speed leaf curing and improve tobacco grade while more leaf weight is retained.

Higher Market Price: University studies also show that prices of treated tobacco can be up to 12p more per kilo. Growers report a more uniform colour with less green - just what buyers want.

Natural Process: Ethy-Gen® II , used in the generator, changes into ethylene, a natural plant hormone that triggers curing changes in mature tobacco leaves.

Safe from Leaf-Drop: Leaf-drop caused by wind and storms is eliminated by using in the curing system instead of the field as sprayed chemical systems require.

No Leaf Residue: the generators leave absolutely no residue on tobacco leaves.

Works on Mature Tobacco: Will not work on immature tobacco; harvest only mature, ripe leaf.
