XtendFRESH

A higher level of atmosphere control.

XtendFRESH™ system benefits:

  • Longer shelf life
  • Slower ripening
  • Longer voyages
  • Maintains optimum quality

The XtendFRESH™ system can be independently set to produce optimum results for more than 30 types of respiring cargos.

The XtendFRESH™ system’s ability to remove ethylene, while simultaneously managing O2 and CO2, is key to its performance and distinguishes it from other products for container atmosphere control.

Pause the ripening process and fast-forward your global business opportunities.

The XtendFRESH™ system helps slow the ripening process by removing ethylene and simultaneously controlling CO2 and O2 levels in multiple combinations, so you can freshly transport bananas and a broader range of perishables to new markets in all corners of the globe. The exclusive option is modular and easy to install on existing Carrier container refrigeration units with Micro-Link® 3 controllers, making it a lower-cost option for atmospheric control.

Key components include:

  • Patented CO2 and ethylene scrubber made of a cast aluminum housing features different ports that bring in air from both the outside and within the container. Once inside, the air enters the rotating scrubber, which simultaneously adsorbs and desorbs CO2 and ethylene with activated carbon.
  • Self-regenerating activated carbon scrubber assembly that has design features that help to prevent the accumulation of mold and bacteria, which can occur in media found in some competitive controlled atmosphere systems.
  • Control software for the Micro-Link®3. Operator input via the ML3 controller determines the amount of O2 (3 to 21 percent) and CO2 (zero to 19 percent) to be maintained. Higher levels are possible with the addition of an optional CO2 bottle.
  • Sensors for monitoring O2 and CO2.
  • Further extending the atmosphere control capabilities, the XtendFRESH™ system can be used in conjunction with Carrier’s humidity control capability with the use of a humidity sensor.
  • Automatic on-demand fresh air ventilation panel with integral blower.
System Specifications  
Cargo Temperatures -2 to 16º C
Ambient Operational Temperatures -30 to 55º C 
Ambient Storage Temperatures -40 to 70º C 
CO2 Settings 0 to 19%
O2 Settings 3 to 21%

*Dependent upon cargo respiration and container leak rate.
