HempTrain™ Decortication Facility

All 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.

We have changed that! The HempTrain Advanced Decorticator Facility, a complete hemp processing platform, does not have any of the above shortcomings! After extensive research & development, we have developed and implemented our HempTrain™ advanced decortication technology, capable of separating hemp straw into high value products. The cost of a HempTrain™ decortication facility is much lower per ton / hour of throughput than conventional decortication technologies, while producing much higher 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, hemi-cellulose, 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.

Using HempTrain™ we make products for applications ranging from construction to garden care to cat litter to food preservation to sorbents to specialty compost! Learn more about our hemp processing technologies.

This turnkey HempTrain™ decorticator is robust and operation-friendly and will be supplied as a turn-key 1 ton / hour module (10-12,000,000 lbs/year) package, priced (in 2018) at CAD$1,850,000, including a bale opener, main processing units, electrical and dust control – delivered, installed and commissioned. A commercial operating HempTrain™ facility is available for viewing in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Contact us to book your demonstration tour.
