By controlling oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide levels in your industrial building, alongside temperature and humidity, you can regulate the atmosphere in which you store your fruits and vegetables.
One of the most exciting innovations in fruit and vegetable storage systems, CA is game-changing for the food industry. The composition of gas plays a critical role in the storage life of produce. By reducing oxygen and increasing carbon dioxide as compared to the ambient atmosphere, food manufacturers can extend the postharvest life and quality of their supply.
Sometimes CA involves the replacement of ethylene with carbon monoxide in the storage environment. Users of CA systems must continually monitor the levels of gasses in the storage container, making precise adjustments when necessary. CA can also store dry commodities.
The call for CA technology has increased steadily in response to market demands for a continuous fresh produce supply. At Prospec, we stay ahead of the curve so that food suppliers can come to us for storage solutions with confidence.
Product innovation and customer satisfaction are some of our long term commitments at Prospec. We work collaboratively with our clients, including sending professional designers directly to your site, so that we thoroughly understand your needs and challenges.

We offer the latest technology in controlled atmosphere storage (CA) solutions to keep your food fresh.
Controlled atmosphere fumigation is applied to control pests in dry commodities and food supplies and is extremely suitable for both preventative and curative treatments. This technique is based on the creation of a low-oxygen regime/content in a specially-constructed gastight treatment chamber, container, silo or applied for bulk cargo.
The non-toxic fumigation treatments consist of low levels of oxygen and increased temperature, where applicable, and these conditions are kept for a period that is specific to the commodity and insect being treated. This method eradicates insects in all life stages: eggs, larvae, pupae and adults.The final outcome of the breathing cycle is composed of: heat, carbon dioxide, water vapour and some aromatic compounds. The more intense is the breathing activity of fruit, the faster is its senescence and deterioration and therefore the shorter its storage period. The use of cold has been for a long time the only method of storage of fresh fruit products. The CA together with temperature reduction, acts deeper on the vegetables metabolism, for example, reducing ethylene production typical of fruits, blocking the chlorophyll degradation (green color), delaying pectin hydrolysis (pulp firmness), slowing the breakdown of vitamins and acids.
The Controlled Atmosphere technique is environmentally friendly, without the use of toxic gasses, and it does not leave any residue. Another aspect of this technique is that no resistance can occur in the pest population.
