The hemp market is a fast mover
Hemp is a fast-growing plant with a market potential growing at a pace to match and one which extends beyond its links to the cannabis industry. Each part of the hemp plant offers broad potential, from its roots to its leaves, flowers, and stalk. Hemp fiber, for example, can be utilized in products ranging from paper and plastics to skin care products, paint, and even furniture. There is huge market potential beyond its links to the cannabis industry. As individual states legalize different forms of marijuana, hemp production correspondingly is predicted to retain its current double-digit growth for the foreseeable future, with a CAGR of 16.8% through 2030.
Clean and gentle transport preserves hemp seed quality
Hemp flower and seed processing require special treatment. Matured seeds have a crunchy outer shell removed during dehulling, with seeds either going into storage or undergoing further processing. Gentle conveying helps prevent product damage or loss for seeds as well as flowers. A tubular drag conveyor supplies a cost-effective, gentle transportation method that preserves hemp seed product integrity. As an enclosed system, a tubular conveyor system also drastically reduces the dust that accompanies any type of grain or seed processing for a cleaner, safer processing environment.
