Hemp Processing and Drying
Increasing Customer Support and Industry Commitment
As an experienced leader in the Hemp Processing Industry, IAC’s President, Bob Carter, explains the importance of feeding the hemp once it is processed to the dryer after extraction. After commissioning several different hemp drying facilities, IAC realized that a main difficulty in this process is getting a consistent size feed through the dryer, whether you are using a rotary drum dryer, fluidized bed dryer or a box air dryer. Watch our complete Tip of the Month Video below about how the chop size of the material is key in preventing issues within your feed systems and disrupting the drying process.
Mission, KS – In early September 2019, IAC was contracted to design, construct, commission and operate two (2-8TPH) hemp drying and bagging facilities. IAC completed both projects, in parallel, with an expedited design, procurement, construction and commissioning activity that only allowed a 6-week project completion window, due to crops needing harvest.
