More Than Just a Decorticator
We are pleased to announce our new product, the HempTrain™ Advanced Hemp Processing Plant. HempTrain™ is a state-of-the-art hemp decorticator, but offers so much more!
All conventional decorticators use the same hundred-year-old technology, employing a hammer mill or slow-motion “beating” action, which damages bast fiber and causes weakening of hurd fiber. Damage to bast fiber destroys the structural fiber bundles required for effective contemporary reinforcement applications. Weakening or attrition of hurd fiber leads to the production of powdered hurd, contaminating the green microfiber containing CBD and other nutrients; effectively making any separation of clean green microfiber impossible.
CGT has changed that! After extensive research & development, we have developed and implemented our advanced processing technology, capable of separating hemp straw into high-value products. Hemptrain™ employs innovative high-speed kinematic action producing intact structural bast fiber as well as capturing a clean green microfiber stream, rich in CBD and other nutrients (terpenes, glucose, hemicellulose, etc.), which have high value in many applications. This green microfiber stream significantly increases the value of the production, allowing for a high margin and short-time payback business model.
Lower Costs, Higher Value
The cost of a HempTrain™ Advanced Hemp Processing Plant is much lower per ton/ hour of throughput than conventional decortication technologies while producing much higher value products. It’s not just a one size fits all decorticator either, the HempTrain™ is versatile enough to process green or dry, round or square bales and can be customized to suit your needs.
The first HempTrain™ commercial facility has been operating at CGT in Calgary, since late 2016 – reliably and efficiently. The first turnkey HempTrain™ facility has been operating since 2018 and is available for viewing in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
