The installations of Hemp-drying.com dry the flowers in an enclosed space where the conditions are controlled and set for the best drying process. This enclosed space allows for more control over the environment and more efficient use of energy. To prevent the loss of the active compounds of the flower, like CBD and terpenes, our installation dries the product at a low temperature. To make sure your products do not spoil, the flowers are dried quickly with dehumidified air of maximum 20°C in five stages.
50 years of experience in drying allows Hemp-drying.com to find the best suiting drying solution for every problem.
Conditioned drying cell
In an existing building, a conditioned drying cell ensures optimal drying with minimal use of space. The installation is tailored to the available room. The cell is conditioned in its entirety to the desired temperature and moisture content to create drying capacity. The airflow is distributed per layer of boxes and extracts moisture from every individual box. Part of the air is expelled outside and conditioned again to the set properties for drying. This ensures the hemp flowers are always dried optimally. Sensors detect the conditions of the drying cell. By means of our ABC-software these conditions are guided in 5 stages to end up with the perfect moisture content with the maximum amount of CBD and terpenes intact.
Conditioned drying container
For the need of a plug and play installation with a lot of flexibility and scalability, a conditioned drying container is the perfect fit. Containing all the components needed to create the optimal drying conditions. The container is filled with boxes and receives a conditioned airflow which rises through the flowers per box. With each passing of the airflow through the flowers, moisture gets extracted and emitted out of the drying container. This is guided by the conditions in the container, which is measured by sensors of the incoming and outgoing air. Once the incoming air and outcoming air have the same humidity, this means all of the product has reached the desired moisture content at that specific stage of drying.
The air is conditioned every time it has passed through the product. Drying the flowers gradually in stages. The flowers can be placed in open half high boxes, or can be put in drawers of 8 centimeters high with 12 drawers per box. These are continuously aerated with cool and dry air. Extracting moisture from the product, which gets carried off. Drying the hemp flowers takes place in 3 to 5 days and ensures your product is at the optimal moisture content, with minimal loss of active compounds.
ABC-software for control and automation
The optimal temperature for drying whilst preserving cannabinoids and terpenes is around 18 degrees Celsius. Using our software system the entire drying process can be optimized to your wishes and the needs of your product.
All relevant variables for the drying program are customizable, insightful and analyzable with our ABC-software. The perfect drying program can be saved as a repeatable preset.
At the end of the 5th drying stage, the flower is dried to the desired moisture content of about 10% to 12% with the CBD and terpenes perfectly intact.
