KPD Series | The Evolution of Extraction
As the cannabis and hemp industries continues to mature, producers and processors are struggling to meet an ever-growing demand for high quality THC and CBD oil (including full spectrum, isolate, distillate and crystalline) while maximizing internal efficiencies.
The KPD Series are continuous feed extraction plants specifically tailored for hemp and cannabis input to process THC and CBD distillate – the solution for mega producers needing to meet large processing needs.
Existing commercial batch processing (a method which involves manually loading and unloading the extraction equipment) has processing limitations of approximately 700 kilograms of raw cannabis per day. Scaling production up means adding equipment and personnel on a one-for-one basis in order to increase processing volumes.
Hence, a need has developed for scaled industrial processing capacities with efficient, continuous feed extraction and post-processing technologies. Enter the KPD Series, the solution for mega producers needing to meet large processing needs.
For example — utilizing ethanol, heptane or hexane as a solvent — the 1500 KPD processes up to 1,500 kilograms (3,300 lbs) of raw hemp or cannabis material per day.
The KPD Series are a continuous feed extraction plants specifically tailored for hemp and cannabis input to process THC and CBD distillate.
Utilizing ethanol, heptane or hexane as a solvent, and by way example, the 1500 KPD processes up to 1,500 kilograms (3,300 lbs) of raw hemp or cannabis material per day.
Automation and continuous flow are major contributors to its massive throughput capabilities. The core system requires as few as 4 technicians to operate the machinery, an immense improvement over large batch production methods which don’t come close to the throughput of the 1500 KPD.
The KPD design is scalable to meet the most demanding needs, whether it’s processing 1,000 – 100,000+ kilograms of biomass input per day. Ask about larger processing plant solutions (e.g., the 3000, 6000 or 12000 KPD).
Over a year in the making, the Precision® engineering team designed the KPD Series, a revolutionary technology in the cannabis and hemp industries. The patent pending systems contained within the KPD Series, such as the counter-current ethanol-based extraction and propriety filtration, are scaled technologies that exclusively exist within the KPD.
The KPD was also designed with scalability in mind. The same technologies may be incorporated into larger systems of almost any size. Hence, the big brother of the 1500 KPD is the 3000 KPD, offering 3,000 kilograms (over 6,600 lbs) of raw hemp or cannabis processing per day. The scalability is essentially boundless; future KPD iterations may process up to several hundred tons of input material per day.
Precision’s engineering team specifically designed the KPD Series with large scale industrial processors in mind. Overcoming the physical and technological obstacles of scaled production is what the KPD does best.
The KPD Series is the solution for industrial processors and the next step of evolution in the extraction industry.
