Featuring our newly developed SD Series Hemp Biomass Processing and Harvesting Equipment that has been designed with state of the art 3D CAD modeling software to provide high confidence in the safety and functionality of this new explosion resistant hemp processing technology.
The complete set of engineering CAD files, CNC machining STEP files, and shop drawings for manufacture are available comprising the entire SD series line of equipment as described in the following pages. Individual machines are separately priced if so desired. We stand behind our technology with our resources contributing towards a Fully Commissioned System ready for turn-key service in your facility or in your fields.
Full engineering support and consultation is provided throughout your review, acquisition, and subsequent build protocols in your shops.
Our Engineering Software:
Autodesk Inventor / Mechanical Desktop 3D CAD Modeling, & Simulation.
Comsol Multi-Physics. / FEA Physics Modeling./ Stress & Strain
MapleSim / Maple. / Physics Modeling / Statics & Dynamics and Strength of Materials.
Engineering Integrity; Professional duty of care and ethics with general practice on manufacturing, delivery, support and commissioning.
Safety: Fire & Explosion Safety Codes are integrated into the design featuring our novel roller air cooling system to prevent hemp ignition.
The technology has been developed for the hemp farming community, with information and data from the Ministry of Agriculture and OMAFRA in Ontario Canada and including the local hemp farming coalitions in Ontario Canada and abroad.
The SD series of equipment can make 5 streams of market ready product with an absolute minimum of capital investment.
Under development at this time is our Phase two program for a continuous process where bales are loaded into a rotating pyrolyzing screen drum.
Hot CO2 combustion gas from the fire box below it turns the hemp into very high grade hemp charcoal in a continuous and controlled process.
The hemp bale undergoes pyrolysis while tumbling inside the screen kiln under which is located a charcoal fire box.
We have three degrees of control in the process ;
- Kiln Rotation Speed RPM
- Fire Box Temperature via Air Damper.
- Kiln Tilt Angle for residence time
The pyrolized Bio-char is expelled at the exit end by gravity assist by a tilt introduced to the center line of rotation. Typically about 5 to 10 degrees.
Hemp Bio-Char is a high value carbon negative soil remediation base solution that provides water and nutrient supplements holding qualities where needed to rejuvinate compromised or depleted soils. It never needs to be replaced once applied and will last indefinitely.
Pyrolysis of hemp biomass produces Bio-Char in our rotary kiln from standard round or square hemp bales with this newly developed technology.
The hemp bale is placed directly into the rotary kiln without any unpacking or unrolling and is pyrolized inside the kiln in a unique self sustaining process.
Hemp Bio-Char also is an excellent source of carbon for the production of Graphene whose value has been steadily increasing in the high tech electronics and chemicals research marketplaces over the last five years.
Both end hatches are identical except the exit hatch has a breaching in the bottom for Bio-Char egress.
This technology is available to you as formal ANSI standard engineering 3D CAD shop drawings and STEP CNC files ready for manufacture with your own local area vendors and machine shops. We provide full engineering on-line support and consultation throughout your building process to you, your shops and to your vendors. Email us for the quotations.
Thus, you become the engineering manager for your build project empowered with our engineering files and support. There is no sales mark-up, commission, customs brokerage fees, insurance, duty, tariffs, tax, or cross border shipping.
