Hemp Shredders and Fine Mills
Franklin Miller manufactures a wide range of size reduction equipment for the hemp industry. Wet or dry, we have a size-reduction option for you.
Our TASKMASTER® Shredders can shred wet or dry hemp, with ease, down to a half inch 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.
Our VULCANATOR® fine mills can take dry hemp and reduce it to a fine particle size with ease. With a wide range of size, our powerful units can reduce small or large volumes of hemp down to size. These powerful units are available in carbon and stainless steel for use in sanitary and non sanitary applications.
The VULCANATOR® KM05 is a compact, high performance knife mill that quickly and efficiently reduces friable materials to desired output size. The KM05 employs high shear knives that accurately cut solids to desired output size with a shear action without overgrind or excessive fines. The KM05 can process 110 to 220 lbs. per hour or more depending on the application. The KM05 can handle such materials as HDPE, (High Density Polyethylene), PP (polypropylene) PET (polyethylene terephthalate), plants, and herbs and more.
The TASKMASTER® industrial shredders provide complete hemp plant reduction, including stalks, roots, and bulbs as well as a variety of other materials. These shredders are used before dryers and help with the CBD extraction process. These powerful shredders are a clean and quiet alternative to a gas-powered wood chipper. They typically employ up to a 30 HP motor and gear drive and are supplied complete with a stand, hopper and automatic reversing controller. Infeed or discharge conveyor systems are available as an optional add-on.
