The Vulcan Hemp Drying System is designed to dry up to eight tons of hemp per hour with an output moisture content of 10% to 12%.
Chopped hemp is fed into the rotary dryer by a conveyor and then dried at a low temperature by mounting a burner to a long combustion chamber which prevents direct contact with the burner flame. The burner flame is also cooled by a manifold of forced ambient air that passes through the combustion chamber as well. After passing through the dryer, the dried product moves to a transfer conveyor for further sorting, separation and processing.
The vapor from the process is pulled through a large, negative-pressure chamber at the exit of the dryer to allow additional product drop out. Finally, the vapor is pulled through a cyclone or a baghouse to eliminate further airborne particulates.
Each machine is custom-built for each client.
