Are you shipping your harvested fruit to far regions and would like to make sure they do not arrive spoiled at their destination? Or are you trying to handle the seasonality of your fruit to ensure a constant supply the whole year round?
Reducing the oxygen levels and controlling the CO₂ concentration in your storage area combined with reduced temperatures and controlled humidity levels can help you to significantly extend the shelf life of your fruit.
Our controlled atmosphere storage solutions reduce the oxygen levels in the atmosphere of the storage area by injecting specific amounts of nitrogen. If you have a non-hermetic storage area—such as shipping containers or cargo holds—our solutions can constantly monitor the oxygen and carbon dioxide levels, and inject nitrogen when needed, to continuously keep an optimal, lowered-oxygen concentration.

Can food gases help for other post-harvest challenges?
Yes. Our gases can speed up or slow down the ripening of your fruit. They can also remove the astringency levels of persimmons.
Air Products gases, typically provided in gaseous and liquid form, enable customers in a wide range of industries to improve their environmental performance, product quality, and productivity.
Useful as a gas, for its inert properties, and as a liquid for cooling and freezing. Virtually any industry can benefit from its unique properties to improve yields, optimize performance and make operations safer.
A convenient and cost-effective solution for larger operations. CryoEase® tanks are available in a range of sizes. The CryoEase® service simplifies your gas supply by eliminating the need to handle cylinders, stock taking and ordering.
Delivered by truck and stored on your site either as a liquid in cryogenic tanks or as a gas in high-pressure tubes based on your volume, desired pressure, purity level, flow rate, and operating pattern.
On-site gas generation helps sustainability-minded customers lower their carbon footprint, boost energy efficiency, increase throughput, enhance end product quality, and improve environmental performance.
