HempTrain™ Baled Straw Opener

The HempTrain™ Baled Straw Opener is the only system in the world that has been engineered to open baled hemp straw, square or round, fresh/green or dry, on an industrial scale.
The HempTrain™ Baled Straw Opener, unlike conventional unwinders, has been engineered specifically for industrial hemp. Its patented design allows it to withstand the unique rigours of 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 to be further processed into high-value products.
The HempTrain™ Baled Straw Opener can open conventional square or round hemp baled straw, dry or fresh/green, whole plant or leaves. With an operational window of 5’ x 6’ (1.6m x 1.8m), the HempTrain™ Baled Straw Opener does not require any alignment of hemp stalks to separate. It should, however, be noted that certain types of feedstock with a higher content of bast fiber (>15% w/w) and longer bast fiber in length (>3ft), as well as certain bale configurations, may significantly affect the throughput capacity. Feed rate and manner of loading may change significantly depending on feedstock.
Designed for compatibility with HempTrain™ Advanced Processing Systems, the HempTrain™ Baled Straw Opener can process hemp biomass, regardless of whether it's whole plants, tops, strippings, or straw.

Operation

What is the HempTrain™ Advanced Processing System?

Demonstration- How Does A HempTrain™ Operate?

*Certain types of feedstock with a higher content of bast fiber (>15% w/w) and longer bast fiber in length (>3ft), as well as certain bale configurations may significantly affect the throughput capacity. Feed rate and manner of loading may change significantly depending on feedstock. For more information, please contact us.

Conventional decorticators (hammer mills, scutchers, etc.) use technology that is, in some cases, over a century old. These mechanisms were designed for destruction of their feedstock, damaging the hemp and causing attrition to both bast and hurd fibers. This destructive action leads to a loss in fiber integrity, and bast fiber cannot therefore be used effectively in contemporary reinforcement applications. This action also reduces the size of all feedstock components, creating a mixture that cannot be then separated into its constituents efficiently or cost-effectively.

The HempTrain™ Advanced Hemp Processing System employs a unique and proprietary decortication mechanism, that can be used in both dry and fresh/green processing!

When processing fresh/green feedstock, HempTrain™ separates out an extraction-ready fraction, consisting primarily of the bud leaves, rich in nutrients, and excluding sugar leaves and anything larger. This yields a high-efficiency extraction-ready fraction from industrial hemp, which is not attainable by any other method. Read our whitepaper to learn more.

When processing dry feedstock, HempTrain™ produces long, intact structural bast fiber, clean, size-specified hurd, and a rich bio-nutrient microfiber stream that is a concentrate of all leaf and flower material. Read our whitepaper to learn more.

Licensing

HempTrain™ Technology & Business Licenses are available, allowing the License Holder to manufacture and distribute HempTrain™ technology & equipment within territories.
The License is exclusive for life and irrevocable for the delineated Territory and will include the supply by CGT the first installation of the HempTrain™ HT-UF Model with optional additions 2A-D, full technology transfer (drawings, specifications, technical know-how), on-going technical support by CGT engineers in Canada, as well as full access to on-going technological upgrades by CGT. The License will entitle the Licensee to manufacture, distribute and/or operate HempTrain™ exclusively and unconditionally and without limitations within Territory.
The cost of a License in Canada & the continental US, for a Territory with a population of up to 20,000,000 (20 million) is a one-time, up-front USD$3.95M (including the cost of the first turn-key HempTrain™ system). Each additional license for ANY territory worldwide will cost a one-time, up-front USD$1.95M (HempTrain™ system not included) if the additional territory is still “open” and the additional license is purchased within 1 year of purchasing the first, main License. There will be no royalty or alike whatsoever and no deferred payments. Licenses for territories outside of Canada & the continental US will be priced on the basis of their merits. Learn More>>
