Our system Advantages
'RMS' Ripening management system
The RMS is a modular state of the art control system. Working with end users the control system has been designed to ensure secure access to a range of functions, all of which can be accessed remotely.
Climate (Environmentally) friendly
Over the years MTX have carried out extensive research ensuring that our system is as efficient in operation as possible to allow our clients to achieve maximum payback. In comparison to a number of other ripening systems, we have found that in operation our systems operate up to 30% more efficiently. Not only do our clients gain by saving but help to reduce unwanted excessive carbon emissions which damage the environment.
Optimised variable reversible air flow
Our fans can offer truly reversible airflow ensuring each side of the pallet receives the same quantity of temperature-controlled air. During the ripening cycle the fan speed is optimised dependent upon the number of loaded pallets and required cooling maximising energy efficiency and performance.
Cost effective maintenance
Our unique air distribution system is situated in a plenum integral to the ripening room. This is accessed via a roof mounted service hatch. The system ensures maintenance can be carried out safely and with NO disruption to the fruit pallet-even when the room is fully loaded. As there are no unsightly airbags or tarpaulins requiring costly maintenance, ongoing service costs are kept to an absolute minimum.
Available in single, two and three tier configurations, the MTX system has been designed to make loading and unloading as simple and as quick as possible, with NO airbags or tarpaulins to hinder this once time consuming process.
MTX were the pioneers of part loading with automatic reduction of airflow proportionate to the number of pallets in the room. By the flick of a switch, users are able to isolate empty pallet spaces from the ripening process, ensuring air pressure is uniformly maintained. This eliminates short circuiting and subsequent pressure losses from other pallet spaces. This feature also enhances energy efficiency.
Aimed at benefiting both the ripening process and reducing carbon emissions our variable flow systems achieves both these important targets. All ripeners know that ventilation hole sizes within boxes vary dependent on origin. Why run fans at full bore when it is not required? Ripeners are able to predetermine the volume of air flow in circulation for each product and subsequently maximise efficiency of the whole process.
The MTX ripening system provides total control ensuring our clients process and environmental targets are met.
What our clients think:
MTX have been supporting Greencell with the provision of ripening rooms and facilities management services for nearly ten years. During this time they have always taken a proactive approach providing us with exceptional and reliable ripening room technology.

Fyffes Group has been working with MTX for over 25 years. During this time they have supported us with the construction of several UK ripening and distribution depots. A significant milestone was the construction of Europe’s first three tier ripening system which we collectively installed in Basingstoke. MTX and their FM team have always and… continue to work with Fyffes providing a reliable and proactive service. Read more “Andrew Denham Smith”
I found MTX and their team open and very professional during the tender and implementation phase of our project. They had the appropriate expertise in designing, developing and delivering a substantial project and were very organised and methodical in their approach to the works. Whenever unanticipated problems arose, they were good with ideas and resourceful… at accessing the right solution. The overall quality of their works has been excellent and I can confirm without hesitation that together we have delivered a state of the art fresh produce production and distribution facility. Our customers and key partners are very impressed with the final result. Read more “Parveen Mehta”
