Hemp Dryers

Drying technique is typically the single greatest determinant of end-product quality. Over-dried product will have low yield and under-dried product will mold. ABM helps large farms and co-ops find the balance between throughput and yield with today’s best solutions and 24/7 emergency service.

Commercial Hemp Dryers

Fluid beds use evenly distributed airflow to suspend and fluidize product, like a ping-pong ball over an airstream. Heat is used to improve performance, but because it is not the primary driver of evaporation, does not burn the oils like other methods.

Bulk Hemp Fluid Bed Dryer

Whole Flower Dryers

Microwave dryers use vacuum and tightly controlled microwaves. Because the gentle mixing paddles do not harm the product, this method is used primarily for smokeable, whole flowers. Various system sizes are available from 60 to 400 cubic foot volumes.
