Microwave Dryers

When most people think of microwaves they think of indiscriminate radiation blasting, uneven heating, and hot bowls with cold food. But comparing consumer to commercial microwaves is like comparing a nuke to a nuclear reactor. The Marion WaveMixe uses vacuum to reduce the moisture’s boiling point and tightly controlled microwaves to hold product, to the exact desired temperature within less than 1°F variance. This has the primary benefit of allowing us to ensure virtually no loss of herb extract, and the secondary benefit of being able to decarboxylate pellets.

Because these mixers retains over 99% of herb extract content and the specially-designed mixing paddles are gentle on product, this method poses valuable advantages for all forms of bud. Various system sizes are available from 60 to 400 cubic foot volumes.
