CHICAGO – Kason Corporation and ABM Equipment collectively have launched two fluid mattress drying techniques tailor-made to completely different ranges of hashish processing volumes.
The new Biomass Drying System models are designed across the hashish drying methodology deployed with the Kason VIBRO-BED system. The first is a single-stage fluid mattress dryer used for smaller 1,000 pound/hour services; the second unit is deployed for larger-scale techniques as excessive as 8,000 pound/hour environments.
The bigger system makes use of a strong patent-pending 2-stage drying method that deploys exact temperatures all through the method, leading to a premium biomass end-product, with minimal CBD loss and decrease vitality prices.
Ideal for batch or steady drying of hashish biomass, the VIBRO-BED Circular Vibratory Fluid Bed Dryer addresses the shortcomings of extreme-flash-dry models. Drying at increased temperatures can run the danger of burning the product or degrading its CBD content material, whereas processing at decrease temperatures may end up in moist spots and molding of product, if not extended sufficiently.
Columbia Hemp Trading Company Founder Billy Tosheff, one of many earliest customers of the brand new 2-stage drying methodology, pointed to the partnership between his firm, Kason and ABM as a crucial aggressive benefit for him out there.
“We’ve made dramatic improvements in throughput, cost-efficiency and most importantly the quality of our premium product,” famous Tosheff. “None of our progress would have been possible without ABM; they intuitively understand what it takes to dry any type of organic product. Mixing that with the Kason fluid bed drying technology is truly a win-win for the company.”
Kason’s patent-pending 2-stage method is ready to use increased temperatures on moist product, take away undesirable stalks and stems, then end the method with low temperatures for the dryer product. The first stage removes as much as 50% moisture content material, whereas the second stage depends on an extended dwell time and fewer warmth to finish the method right down to 4-12% moisture.
“Cannabis processors are not a one-size-fits-all industry,” defined ABM Equipment Owner Jeff Walling. ABM is representing Kason out there as its unique system integrator for hashish. “Our customers represent a wide variety of processing operations with varying crop acreages and square footage facilities that demand a more customized approach to fitting a solution just to their volumes.”
“Kason’s 2-stage cannabis drying solution has been proven to be reliable in both batch and continuous processing applications for all levels of cannabis processing facilities,” mentioned Henry Alamzad, Senior Vice President of Advanced Materials Processing, the mother or father group for Kason Corporation. “Our VIBRO-BED fluid bed dryers have become quite popular among premium cannabis producers that are seeking rugged, stainless steel systems that are consistent with the most rigorous food-grade and pharmaceutical environments in the country.”
