The Citrus Generator


Citrus Generator Benefits:

  • Extremely easy to use to obtain low levels (<10 ppm) of ethylene for citrus degreening
  • Operating Instructions are basic and simple; there are no explosion possibilities when following the easy product directions*
  • The generator has eight output settings make it able to accommodate different room sizes and ethylene requirements


Stainless steel construction provides a durable, low maintenance, corrosion resistant and easy to clean ethylene generator.

Made in the USA of high-quality and superb-engineered components, all to the compliance of International Testing Standards.

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:

green light makes it clearly evident of ethylene production
A red light will provide an alert in the rare occurrence of a malfunction.

Generator cannot overheat due to the continual monitoring of the system.


Compliance with International Testing Standards:
Available with TÜV (TÜV SÜV) and CE Conformity to 73/23/CEE and 89/336/EEC.

Additional details:

  • Citrus-Generator-2019-300x300Ethylene output is uniform for better fruit degreening.
  • 2.5 liter Ethy-Gen® II Ripening Concentrate reservoir.
  • Eight (8) position switch to adjust ethylene output. The unit will convert one litre of Ethy-Gen® II to ethylene in:
    • 144 HOURS / LITRE
    • 32 HOURS / LITRE
    • 120 HOURS / LITRE
    • 108 HOURS / LITRE
    • 96 HOURS / LITRE
    • 84 HOURS / LITRE
    • 72 HOURS / LITRE
    • 60 HOURS / LITRE



The Citrus Generator is designed for degreening rooms 850 m3 and smaller (minimum 45 m3).

For larger rooms, the Easy-Ripe® Generator, with a larger ethylene production capacity, may be required.

The Centralized Ripening System® (CRS) is ideal for large scale degreening operations.
