Atmosphere Control: Atmosphere control is the procedure by which the inner gas atmosphere of the reefer pot is changed, controlled or improved to be able to lessen the decay and ripening of fresh produce. Food quality is way better maintained, enabling an extended transit time, wider physical distribution, and expanded shelf life. Perishables, especially climacteric vegetables & fruits, continue steadily to live and inhale after harvesting and during transport to the buyer. Various specialized development and techniques have been developed to decelerate the speed of respiration and stretch the shelf-life of perishables, including storage space atmosphere control and treatment of foodstuffs before and during travel. Normal air mainly includes 21% air (O2), 0.038% skin tightening and (CO2) and 78% nitrogen (N2). During respiration, fruits & vegetables take in air and emit skin tightening and ethylene. By changing the structure of air and skin tightening and in the atmosphere, it is possible to slow down the respiration rate of perishable products, and the storage area life is long.
