Hemp Drying Has Never Been Faster 2019 Harvest Season—Ventco Drying Systems Have Now Dried Millions Upon Millions of Pounds of Industrial Hemp

For hemp farmers, time spent on hemp drying is unfortunate but necessary downtime between harvest and sale. Using our proprietary industrial hemp drying technology, we are able to help hemp farmers reduce the amount of time it takes for hemp to dry—allowing them to get to market faster than ever before. 

Ventco's years of expertise in ventilation, refrigeration, and advanced electrical systems has given us a competitive edge in developing this new technology, which uses a combination of heat, ventilation, and automation to dry hemp in half the time of traditional kilns.

Efficient, Timely Hemp Drying A Case Study from the 2018 Harvest

25,000 pounds of green industrial hemp at 80 to 85% moisture content was dried in 5.5 hours to 11% moisture content, consistently in each system. In this case there were four systems completing at least three cycles per day, for a total of 300,000 pounds of wet product processed per day. Dry recovery was approximately 100,000 pounds per day. The recovery was 30 to 38 percent.

Is It Time to Upgrade Your Kiln?

Effective & Efficient Hemp Drying

When drying hemp, you want the end result to be...well, dry. But some methods of hemp drying leave a less-than-ideal level of moisture within your harvest. Our hemp drying kilns ensure maximum dryness—and, by extension, a safer product—through our proprietary drying technology. 

A Better Product

Good business means providing a reliably high-quality product to your customers, time and time again. Reducing the hemp drying process helps retain the beneficial properties that make hemp such a desirable commodity—allowing you to produce a higher quality end product with the crop you already have. 

Protecting Your Investment

With weather, pests, and other environmental factors, farming can be a risky business. Losing part of your crop to post-harvest spoilage is not one of the things you should have to worry about. Nevertheless, conventional hemp drying methods can leave your crop susceptible to rot and contamination. 

We have large-scale production models as well as transportable kilns that are able to handle large quantities of product at a time. These high-efficiency kilns protect your investment by decreasing the kiln drying time, improving the overall quality of your product, and enabling you to get a quicker return on investment.
