HempTrain™ Advanced Hemp Processing Plant
Conventional decorticators use the same hundred year old technology, employing a hammer mill or alike slow motion “beating” action, which damages bast fiber and causes attrition of hurd fiber. Damage to bast fiber destroys the structural fiber bundles required for effective contemporary reinforcement applications. Attrition of hurd fiber leads to production of powdered hurd, contaminating the green microfiber containing CBD and other nutrients; effectively making any separation of clean green mass fraction impossible.
HempTrain™ employs innovative high speed kinematic action producing intact structural bast fiber, spec-sized hurd, and a clean green microfiber stream, rich in CBD and other bio-nutrients (terpenes, glucose, hemi-cellulose, etc.).This green microfiber stream significantly increases the value of the production, allowing for a high margin and short- time payback business model.
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.
The CGT Bale Opener, included in the HempTrain™ turnkey package, has been engineered to open any standard square or round hemp bale, has an operational window of 5’ x 6’x 8’ (1.5m x 1.8m x 2.4m), and does not require alignment of hemp stalks.
Utilizing CGT’s state-of-the-art, patent-pending technology, the CGT Bale Opener is capable of opening over 2000 lbs/hr. Unlike conventional bale openers, the CGT Bale Opener is designed to withstand the unique rigors of the long, high tensile strength hemp fiber (avoiding wrapping and clumping) without damage to the fiber. It is also, very importantly, engineered to minimize the destruction and loss of green material and the bio-nutrients it contains, while ensuring the hemp remains intact, structural, and undamaged so as to be further processed into high-value products.
The CGT Bale Opener has been specifically designed for compatibility with the HempTrain™ Advanced Processing Plant, and can therefore even process whole hemp plants, mowed or swathed at their base, mitigating the loss of CBD and other bio-nutrients.
