Hemp Dryers


The Vulcan® Drying Systems Hemp Drying System is custom-designed and manufactured to improve a customer's individual drying needs. These drying systems consist of a correctly sized drum and a burner mounted in a concurrent configuration. Vulcan® Drying Systems Hemp Drying Systems are designed specifically to dry up to 8 tons per hour of hemp with an output moisture content between 10-12%.


Chopped hemp is fed into the rotary dryer by a feed conveyor.  The dryer dries at low temperature by mounting a burner to a long combustion chamber to prevent direct contact with the burner flame.  The burner flame is also cooled by a manifold of forced ambient air that passes through the combustion chamber as well.  After passing through the dryer, the dried product is discharged to a transfer conveyor for further sorting, separation and processing. The vapor from the process is pulled through a large negative pressure chamber at the exit of the dryer to allow additional product drop out.  Finally, the vapor is pulled through a cyclone or a baghouse to eliminate further airborne particulates.
