HempTrain™ Baled Straw Opener
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, 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. Feed rate and manner of loading may change significantly depending on feedstock.
NForce-Fiber® is the world's only commercial technology for advanced, high-performance construction hemp fiber. It's been used in more than 100 commercial projects, including the 2022 Beijing Olympics and is the only ASTM/CSA-compliant hemp reinforcement fiber for concrete worldwide.
Unlike conventional synthetic micro-fibers, NForce-Fiber® boasts a chemical bond with the concrete matrix, as well as a mechanical one. NForce-Fiber® is specially treated for concrete compatibility and is adopted for premium concrete and shotcrete applications Read more...
