The high content of cannabidiol in plant biomass of industrial hemp varieties and the low level of THC content, lets to use them as potentially profitable raw material for production of medicines based on cannabidiol. To obtain the raw material of high quality, HEMPTECHNO offers a hemp combing machine that allows to separate the leaves and inflorescences by the method of combing of the unharvested hemp stalk.
Hemp combing machine
1 – Combing harvester;
2 – Device for transporting of combed heap;
3 – Tractor;
4 – Hindcarriage
Bast crops processing line
Processing capacity- 400-450 kg/h. Power consumption – up to 60 kW/h Low metal capacity — the total weight of the equipment does not exceed 10 tons. Hemp scutch content – up to 5%.
Unwinder of rolls
The unwinder of rolls is used for the gradual unwinding of a roll with hemp raw material and forming of a band for further processing.
The layer former is intended for thinning and preparation of a band from the unwinder to the characteristics acceptable for processing in a decorticator.
The decorticator is designed for intensive separation of the scutch from the fiber, due to the braking of the stems by grooved breaker rollers.
The disintegrating mill is intended for the final intensive separation of the scutch and partial decrease of the length of the fiber complexes
The shaking machine is used to clean the fiber from the free scutch.
Place and time: 12 — 13 June 2018, Maternushaus, Cologne, Germany.
Specialists from all over the world will meet in order to exchange information regarding the latest developments in hemp applications for fibres, shivs, seeds and oil as well as cannabinoids.
