Hemp Conveyors

As with all equipment that touches cannabis, even shredders, hemp conveyors must be as gentle as practicality allows. A certain level of destruction is necessary for any competitive process, but reducing this effect whenever possible throughout a line will increase yields and efficiency.

Trough belt conveyors are generally best for un-shredded and wet hemp because they’re easy to clean and fibrous stalks can bind in augers and screw conveyors. And because hemp biomass agglomerates and does not roll easily, belt conveyors can be inclined up to 30°.

When conveying dry, shredded product up slopes, screw conveyors are best for short runs and chain disks are best for long runs. Although chain disks’ capacity for hemp maxes out around 150 lbs. of dried flower per minute, they can run over 2,000 feet and around 24 turns from a single drive. They can also accommodate as many inlets and outlets as needed.
Although the narrow augers used for milled grain are often thought of as an alternative, we only recommend them under special circumstances because of the inherent friction involved.

Yellowstone Falling Film Evaporators

The Yellowstone falling film evaporators are the most efficient on the market and are sold and serviced from our facility with real 24/7 service. The Yellowstone unit provides numerous efficiency-boosting features including vapor heat recapture and inlet pre-warming, a super-high surface area disperser which does not need level ground, and chiller-less operation. Not only does the chiller-less condenser perform more efficiently at lower cost than the cold-plate method, but it allows the machine to be throttled much higher for low-concentration batches without being limited by the chiller.
