Radio Frequency Hemp Drying Facility | Near Scottsdale, AZ
Drying is an essential part of processing hemp for market or phytocannabinoid extraction, but the process can take a significant amount of time, effort and resources. Drying hemp too slowly—in direct sun, or not reducing the moisture content to appropriate levels while hang drying or laying the hemp on the ground—can result in a low-quality product or one that is unable to be sold or used for extraction.
Benefits of Radio Frequency (RF) Technology
Unlike conventional drying techniques which transfer heat from an external heat source to the plant through its delicate surface, RF technology creates a field that generates heat evenly throughout a hemp plant’s mass. This results in uniform, precision drying regardless of varying plant size or weight. Even better, the integrity of each plant is maintained through the entire drying process, preserving precious cannabinoids and terpenes. This drying facility also utilizes infrared sensors to measure the moisture of each plant in real time. To complete the process, the enclosed facility then mills the dried hemp using a cooled hammermill to grind the dried flower to minimize the degradation of cannabinoids due to heat. The milled material can then be pelletized, also using chilled equipment, and then bagged into super sacks or shipped as bulk.
