Banana Ripening Ethylene Generator


What is Ethylene?

Ethylene is a natural plant growth hormone that is produced by all fruits and vegetables. It has a sweet & musky smell and often referred to as fruit ripening hormone.

GENET is a portable Fruit Generator which produces ethylene gas from specially formulated ripening liquid. The ripe liquid ingredients enhance the ripening process in the tissues of stored fruits like Banana, Mango, Papaya, Citrus, Tomato, etc. It is placed inside a commercial ripening room where ethylene gas produced at a slow and even pace. The green banana changes color to golden yellow after ripening uniformly on the banana skin. This conversion of starch into sugar is hence done safely. Papaya Ripening, kiwi ripening etc  is also done in the same way and often referred to as ethylene ripening.

This method of ripening using ethylene is approved by the FSSAI, Govt. of India as well as regulating agencies all over the world. For more details about FSSAI, you can click on this weblink: The technical features of Genet Ethylene Generators are as follows:



  1. Place GENET ripening generator inside the ripening chamber
  2. Fill the tank with the Ripening liquid and put the cap on. Tank capacity is 1 liters. Do Not Overfill !!  Attention: Do not use any other liquid in Genet for 'ripening' as it will damage the machine. People who claim that their liquid can be used in Genet are making false claims to mislead you and you should be wary of such people.
  3. Plug GENET in the electrical connection 230V, 50 Hz and press the switch on button on the rear panel.
  4. Green LED starts to glow on the front panel, indicating that machine is now working
  5. Ethylene production starts automatically after reaching the working temperature (in about 15 - 20 minutes) and is signaled by YELLOW LED to start glowing on the front panel.
  6. Close the room for up to 24 hours to allow the stored fruits to receive ethylene gas and restart its ripening process.
  7. After first 24 hours, open the door of the ripening room and allow the captured gas inside to disperse in the atmosphere before entering the room to check the progress. You can now remove Genet to another room with raw fruit for ripening.
  8. Subsequently, the ripening room door may be opened 4-5 times every day till all fruits have ripened inside. Alternately, you can install wall mounted ethylene sensors with controller to measure and monitor gas concentration in each room.

It is used inside commercial ripening chambers and cold stores where it continuously produces small amounts of controlled ethylene gas and starts  of the fruit ripening cycle.

Both GENET & its ripening liquid are readily available in different packaging sizes at our offices and warehouse. We carry inventory of spare parts to rectify or replace any parts of  equipment sold by us. This acts as a safeguard customers against fake repairing shops. Other products offered by us are pulp thermometer, ethyelene gas, real time temperature monitoring devices, pallet covers etc.

Customers are cautioned against cheap imitations of Genet. These 'ethylene generators' have low grade workmanship, lack of consistency & quality and often mislead customers by making false claims.
