The GENET device is a portable ethylene generator for initiation and enhancing the ripening processes in the tissues of stored fruits, particularly bananas, tomatoes and citrus. 

The GENET device is a portable ethylene generator for initiation and enhancing the ripening processes in the tissues of stored fruits, particularly bananas, tomatoes and citrus. The ethylene gas at relevant concentration causes simultaneous start of the fruit ripening within the whole volume of the ripening space. The result is an uniform ripening of all the fruits and therefore no grading of ripe and unripe pieces is needed, which is usual with a spontaneous uncontrolled ripening. Ethylene is highly explosive gas at concentration above 2.7% (or 27,000 ppm). The main advantage of the ethylene generator GENET over high-pressure cylinders is a low rate of the gas introduction. With GENET there is no risk of an explosion at all: ethylene is produced over time and creates the recommended concentration (~500 ppm), which is far from dangerous one. 
 
The other advantage of GENET is simplicity in maintenance:
just pour the GENETOL liquid in the tank and plug the generator in for recommended time.
 
The GENET works on the basis of a catalytic dehydration of the developing liquid at 400°C temperature. When the igenerator plugged in, the reactor warms up to the necessary temperature. After approximately 15 minutes the reactor warms up and the pump is automatically starts dosing of the developing liquid into the reactor at the optimal speed. The ethylene developed in the reactor is let out from the reactor through upper opening directly into the ripening box. For the banana ripening the ethylene of 500 ppm (0.05%) concentration is used. This concentration is obtained by decomposition of 0.3 l of the developing fluid per 150 m3 of the ripening room volume.
