The EC-3+ system will reduce ethylene levels up to 98.9 percent to reduce shrink and extend shelf life. The unit holds 100 lbs. of the patented Power Pellets. These Pellets can effectively lower ethylene gas readings in storage areas from 75,000 to 150,000 cubic feet, depending on the commodities being stored. In larger rooms more EC-3+ units can be used Example: In a 300,000 cubic foot room you would need two EC-3+ systems. The Patented Power Pellets have also be proven to kill molds and rots.
Each unit uses 100 pounds of pellets to get the proper air speed across the pellets for the reaction time needed to remove the ethylene gas. The pellets start out a bright purple and turn brown from the outside in. You need to crush a half a handful of pellets after about 2 months to see how much purple is left. Then check the pellets about once a month. When there is 25% purple and 75% brown it is time to change the pellets.
Pellet life varies depending on commodity and storage conditions. A single charge of Power Pellets can last three to six months or longer with produce and up to a year with floral. At the end of your season, if the pellets aren’t used up, simply store them away in the original container and use them the next season.
You can place the unit most anywhere in the room, as the units are on casters, just make sure you don’t block the air flow. The unit works in conjunction with your cooling system air movement.
Voltage other than 110/220 single phase will not be wired and is an additional cost of $150.00
