WHAT IS HEMP DRYING?
Hemp drying is typically used to protect a harvested crop from spoiling prior to CBD extraction. While some farmers will hang dry portions of their crops, the space and labor requirements to accomplish this make this impractical for substantial amounts.
The Uzelac dryer system is custom engineered for the application after determining requirements from conversations with the customer. The infeed and drum are sized based on the desired TPH (tonnage per hour) and time estimated the dryer will be running. This drying process allows CBD extraction to be done over a longer amount of time, increasing yield. We have reduced moisture content from 80% in to 8% out for previous hemp customers.
Kambeitz Farms has emerged as a North American leader in agricultural production and innovation. It has grown to a 60,000 acre source of the world’s finest grains, oilseeds, pulses and HEMP.
