Herb Drying Systems

Drying technique is often the single greatest determinant of end-product quality. Over-dried product will have low yield and under-dried product will mold. By controlling how varying strains and harvests enter the dryer, how they act within that dryer, and how they exit, we help growers consistently achieve the potency and vibrancy buyers want. We provide industry-best solutions, turn-key integration, and 24/7 service.

Herb Dryers

ABM’s circular fluid beds are the best solution for shredded hemp on the market. Using vibration and evenly-distributed airflow to suspend and fluidize hemp like ping-pongs ball over an airstream, heat is used as an aid rather than a primary driver of evaporation. This produces high yields and protects hemp’s natural green color. Single-stage systems dry up to 1,000 lbs/hr and dual stage up to 3,000 lbs/hr.

Herb Dryers

Microwave dryers’ air-tight vessels and temperature control are suitable for all forms of cannabis. They can be used to decarb pellets and gently dry pre-roll material because the specialized mixing paddles cause minimal product damage. System sizes are available from 60 to 400 cubic foot volumes for R&D and full production systems alike.
