Ethylene Pallet Covers

Ethylene Pallet Covers

Ethylene Pallet Covers are a range of ethylene covers designed to cater to different applications. These covers can remove ethylene produced by fresh produce, eliminating contaminants and extending post-harvest shelf life.

Why is it Better than an Envelope?
  • The porosity of the paper is superior to the classic used in the envelopes.
  • The small granulometry of the ethylene absorbent makes the Granulate have a large surface and a high reaction speed.
  • The Granulate is spread over a large area and comes into contact with ethylene more easily.
  • They maintain quality and allow them to reach distant markets.

All these reasons make it a product capable of reducing ethylene levels like no other. The paper at the bottom, which is in contact with the products, is of a special composition that makes it more resistant to water than papers containing only cellulose. It is approved for contact with food. The leaves are packed in groups, with a plastic barrier preventing the sheet from being consumed with air pollutants and helping make the packaging as compact as possible.

Below is our comprehensive range of Ethylene Pallet Covers:

Ethylene Covers | MB+P | Pallet Covers

Ethylene and other volatiles emitted by fruits and vegetables can cause deterioration, shattering, and ripening. At the same time, the excess moisture speeds up the decay process and causes the growth of bacteria/fungus on produce during the transportation and storage period. Ethylene is an odourless and colourless natural gas that fruits, vegetables, plants, and flowers emit. It speeds up the process of ripening. This is not favourable for the products in storage and transit. The ethylene bananas can ripen more quickly when shipped in a mature green state. This results in the spoiling of the product following artificial ripening.

The patented Ethylene Covers | MB+P | Pallet Covers help significantly reduce ethylene levels during storage and shipping. This helps in extending the shelf-life of products post-harvest. The extended shelf life of the products enables harvesters to ship them through more cost-effective means of transportation, like trucks instead of air freight. The producers can even hold the product in storage for an extended period and wait for better favourable conditions to sell them.

The ethylene gas traps inside these covers and reduces the speed of ripening. These covers are easily placeable over the bananas. They act in multiple ways to extend shelf life and protect fresh produce. MB+P Ethylene Covers are available in various sizes and customised according to the client’s specific requirements.

Applications of Ethylene Covers | MB+P | Pallet Covers
  • Useful for replacing tube filters within reefer containers. The distribution of covers across the container provides a more robust and balanced reduction in contamination.
  • Serve as a supplement for the filters of containers. Generally, two filters are placed inside the air intake evaporator container. If there is an increased amount of ethylene emission and it requires elimination, the ethylene covers offer a perfect solution.
  • Able for producers to send their harvest to farther destinations without loss
  • Best for the storage and transportation of bananas and plantains without banana bags during transportation when the product is exposed to the container’s atmosphere
  • Do not interfere with any artificial ripening process.
Ethylene Covers | KeepFresh

Ethylene Covers | KeepFresh are unique polyethylene covers that can slip over entire produce pallets, such as fruits and vegetables. A propriety additive in a plastic film eliminates ethylene from the environment to keep the vegetables and fruits fresh and slow down the ripening and decaying process. The porous and breathable material of covers enables proper gas exchange across the packaging and prevents mould and bacteria growth on the packaged food. They are removing ethylene and keeping the food products at low temperatures help in extending their shelf life significantly.

Benefits of Using Ethylene Covers | KeepFresh

Using Ethylene | KeepFresh Covers ensures that products get delivered in the best quality possible. Moreover, they minimise weight loss and keep products free of contamination. The extended shelf life of the products enables harvesters to ship their harvest through more cost-effective means of transportation, like trucks instead of air freight. The producers can even hold the product in storage for an extended period and wait for more favourable conditions to sell them.

Ethylene causes deterioration, shattering, and ripening, while the excess moisture speeds up the decay process and causes the growth of bacteria/fungi during transportation and storage. Keep Fresh covers contain unique composition that causes the absorption of ethylene and moisture and inhibits volatile bacterial growth.

The ethylene gas traps inside these covers and reduces the speed of ripening. Clients can easily place these covers over the packaging of fruits, vegetables, and flowers. They act in multiple ways to extend shelf life and protect fresh produce. KeepFresh Ethylene covers are available in various sizes and customised according to the client’s specific requirements.

Reasons for Using Ethylene Covers | KeepFresh instead of a Sachet
  • The paper is more porous in comparison to traditional paper used in sachets.
  • The small granule size of the ethylene absorbent creates a large surface and a fast response.
  • The granules are spread over a large surface area, making contact between fresh produces and ethylene more easily.
  • They preserve quality and make reaching far-away markets possible.

  • Agriculture
  • Food packaging
  • Storage and transportation
Ethylene Covers | High Density

Ethylene Covers | High Density are useful for preserving high ethylene emitting products such as apples, pears, etc. They are customisable covers that you can get designed according to the specific requirements, taking into account certain factors like storage duration, atmosphere type (Dynamic, AC, and ULO), fruit type, the pallet’s weight, etc.

The design of the covers makes it perfect for even distribution across the container; for instance, one cover for each bin or pallet is based on the approach of centralised filtration. They offer a high-performing yet cost-effective solution as compared to the 1-MCP treatment. These covers are ideal for applications that need large quantities of granules and protection against moisture.

Depending on the application, the cover size and amount are adapted according to the fruit or vegetable type. They help in efficiently reducing the ethylene levels without the contamination risks due to their active ingredients.

Applications of Ethylene Covers | High Density
  • When there are many pallets in the shipments, and it is impossible to place the sachet in every box, ethylene covers provide an effective, quick, and easy way to remove ethylene.
  • Serve as a supplement for the filters of containers. Generally, place just two filters inside the air intake evaporator container. If there is an increased amount of ethylene emission and it requires elimination, the ethylene covers offer a perfect solution.
  • Ideal for preserving a variety of products for the long term, such as pears, apples, etc
  • Best for storing and transporting various agricultural products
