The Sure-Ripe® Generator

The Sure-Ripe® Generator

NOTE: The Sure-Ripe® Generator is discontinued.  It is replaced by the Easy-Ripe® Generator, which has adjustable output.  Should you need a generator with just one, fixed ethylene output (no adjustment), we can custom-build an Easy-Ripe this way for you.  Please contact us for information.

There is absolutely NO RISK of ethylene explosion when used as directed in a ripening room sized 1,600 ft3 (45 m3) or more.

Operating Instructions

The Sure-Ripe® Generator converts one (1) quart of Ethy-Gen® II to ethylene continuously (over a 12-14 hour period) & produces ethylene that is not under pressure in concentrations needed for fruit ripening. It can be used to achieve any PPM requirement and will typically produce sufficient ethylene in rooms from 1,500 to 12,000 ft3 (43 to 340 m3). For larger rooms, the addition of more Sure-Ripe® Generators easily accomplishes the proper ethylene level.


The Sure-Ripe® is certified by TÜV SÜV America




statusProper Operation Indicator Light

With intelligent microprocessor technology, critical production processes of the generator are monitored. A highly visible light on the top of the generator constantly shows the operation status of the unit; a green light makes it clearly evident of ethylene production, or a red light will provide an alert in the rare occurrence of a malfunction.

*Remember that ethylene is explosive at 27,000 ppm; always use our generators in ripening rooms that are 1500 ft3 or larger (43 m3). Our products, when used as directed, cannot produce explosive levels of ethylene in commercial ripening rooms.
