SO2 Generator Grape Guard, is a device that contains Sodium metabisulphite, which in contact with moisture emits sulphur dioxide. This gas , inhibits the development of the fungus Botrytis cinerea allowing table grapes prolonged storage and transportation reaches its destination without losing qualities we can offer SO2 Pad for Top and Bottom of the Carton, dual or one release in different sizes and doses.
This SO2 Pad is formed by 2 sheets of co-extruded Polyethylene bonded together through a lamination process with Sodium Metabisulfite as active ingredient. Upon contact with moisture it releases Sulfur Dioxide (SO2). Specially developed for fruit transits.
Berryguard pads are devices compounding coated laminated polymers which stably control SO2 emission applying a very low dosage of this gas to the fruit with the purpose of stopping the action of Botrytis Cinerea fungus. It can be adapted to up to 4 types of packaging sizes and perforations are precisely designed to facilitate the adequate ventilation and gas emission inside of the box.
Humidity control inside the box, allows water absorption and humidity retainer, retains excess humidity and release water in a dry environmental. Insulate of the SO2 Pad, Protect of bleaching, Prevent of germination and sporulation of fungal pathogens like Botrytis, Recyclable, Biodegradable, Harmless, Embossing increase surface area for water absorption specially formulated to absorb moisture and be in direct contact with fruits and other consumer products. It is a product free of chemical additives and dyes.
The in-transit atmosphere is kept free of bacteria, ethylene and fungi spores from harvest/packing to supermarket Freshness, original colour and weight of produce are maintained, and shelf life is extended Mould development is contained Close protection Ideal combination with MAP Technology to control the ethylene gas within produce packaging.
