Franklin Miller Shredders take hemp fresh from the field and produce an output ready for extraction. When paired with a dryer or air drying, we offer complete systems to get you up and ready with a fast, reliable and efficient operation which produces the highest yield for your product.
Our TASKMASTER® Shredders can shred wet or dry hemp with ease, down to a 5/16" particle size. Our versatile shredders can be installed in a plant or in the field in order to facilitate the production of CBD and other hemp extracts.
Because wet hemp applications require a drying process before the oils can be extracted, using a shredder prior to drying can help expedite the process considerably. Shredding renders the hemp into smaller, faster drying particles, making the overall process more efficient. The smaller particle size also reduces the risk of build-up inside the dryers, which is a potential fire hazard.
When paired with a DEFINER Knife Mill, Franklin Miller Hemp Size Reduction processors can further process hemp to your specifications.
