Quality dried flowers

  • Low temperature drying retains cannabinoids and terpenes
  • Low-pressure drying prevents oxidation
  • Gentle process preserves resin-coated calyxes
  • Delivers excellent aroma and appearance

Fast drying times

  • 40 minutes from fresh to dry (80% to 10% – or to 2%!)
  • Vacuum pressures lower boiling point for fast water removal
  • Semi-continuous automated process

Value

  • Dry large volumes with a small machine footprint, reducing the need for oversize drying rooms
  • Prevent inventory loss from microbial spoilage
  • Closed cycle drying captures volatilized terpenes for sale or use

Capacity

  • Drying capacities range from 52 – 105 kg of wet untrimmed flower per hour (115 – 231 lbs per hour) in the medium and large scale machines
  • Process about 420,000 kg (about 925,000 lbs) of wet untrimmed flower per year resulting in about 95,000 kg (about 209,000 lbs) of dry flower per year (in two 8-hour shifts per day operation, 5 days per week).

Robust & flexible system

  • Automated tray unloading/washing/drying available
  • 24/7 operational reliability
  • Proven technology with worldwide machine installations

Regulatory compliance

  • Equipment can be GMP or organic certified
  • Ready for clean-in-place (CIP) automation or COP
  • Compliance certifications: Process recording

Designed for manufacturing convenience

  • Full PLC control for process automation
  • Remote monitoring of HMI via internet connection
  • Menu driven protocol selection enables easy selection of protocols you develop for specific strains
  • Equipment and protocol monitoring and recording
  • Gravity drainage and SOP for sanitizing

High capacity processing

A single 120 kW quantaREV® system can dry about 840 kg
(about 1850 lbs) of wet flower in a single 8-hour day, producing about 190 kg (about 420 lbs) of dry flower per shift.

 

Operating just two shifts per day, 5 days per week, a single machine can dry about 420,000 kg (about 925,000 lbs) of wet flower yielding about 95,000 kg (about 209,000 lbs) of dry flower per year.
