SOFTRIPE IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FROM CONVENTIONAL FRUIT RIPENING SYSTEMS.
WHILE TRADITIONAL RIPENING SYSTEMS REQUIRE A FIXED RIPENING PROGRAMME, SOFTRIPE RESPONDS TO THE NEEDS OF THE FRUIT.
The fruits (e.g. bananas) are in a gastight, closed chamber.
With our Softripe Technology, through continuous measurement of the gas concentrations in the chamber (oxygen (O2), carbon dioxide (CO2) and ethylene (C2H4)), the physiological state of the fruit is determined by means of the respiratory activity (change of the values).
Through this “communication”, the optimum ripening conditions of the fruit are dynamically calculated and adjusted.
The air temperature and the O2, CO2, C2H4 concentration in the chamber are permanently controlled. The fruit determines the required state of the atmosphere. By automatically setting the desired parameters, it is able to ideally ripen “stress-free”.
