Home Hemp Processing Equipment Extraction Decanter Centrifuges

Decanter Centrifuges

Hemp extractors are continuous flow centrifuges that spin at much higher speeds than basket (batch) centrifuges. This allows product to flow through at much higher rates, and because there are higher g-force enacted on the mass, more solvent is removed from biomass than with basket centrifuges. The precisely-calibrated centrifugal force also extracts the highest yield possible without crushing cellular walls—a problem encountered with screw presses. The Hempfuge KG product line is the leading cannabis-specific solution, washing up to 2,750 lbs. of dry biomass per hour, and featuring an infinite turn down ratio. It is made in the USA and is not similar to makes from overseas.

Operational Advantages

Energy recovered from the internal conveyor offsets energy consumption of bowl motor
No screens or filters
CIP
Removes solids down to 20 microns
Does not crush cellular walls (extracts fewer waxes and lipids than screw presses)
98–99.5% solids recapture
