A container oxygen control system includes multiple containers to hold perishable goods in a controlled ripening atmosphere composed primarily of nitrogen and oxygen. A first atmosphere control system controls the container atmosphere during the first transportation leg, such as from the place of harvest to a distribution port. The first atmosphere control system has a centralized nitrogen generator and multiple oxygen controllers which are provided for corresponding containers. The nitrogen generator generates a nitrogen enriched stream which is supplie...
[ We claim:] [1.] A system for controlling a ripening atmosphere composed primarily of nitrogen and oxygen, comprising:a nitrogen generator to generate a nitrogen enriched stream;at least one oxygen controller connected to receive the nitrogen enriched stream from the nitrogen generator, the oxygen controller continuously injecting the nitrogen enriched stream into the ripening atmosphere at an approximately constant rate; andthe oxygen controller sensing an oxygen content of the ripening atmosphere and selectively mixing the nitrogen enriched stream wit...
