Luna Technologies’ new 1.2-ton biomass packer will safely and consistently compress frozen or dry cannabis flower into an eight-inch puck, prepared to fit the IO Extractor’s 25-micron filter bag. The new feature streamlines one of the most physically draining and time-consuming steps to preparing cannabis flower for the hydrocarbon extraction process.
Luna’s packer has a hopper that can take up to 10 pounds of loose biomass at a time. Triggered by a foot switch and using up to 2,385 pounds of force, the machine pneumatically compresses the biomass up to 60% more effectively than by hand and reduces stored volume by up to 85%.
“Something as simple as compressing plant matter into a tube has been a pain point for cannabis extractors for a decade,” said Jack Naito, president of Luna Technologies. “This packer moves us forward on our goal of setting the industry standard in our three areas of focus: safety, quality and ease of use.”
