The Drying Cell is made for easy handling of large quantities of cannabis. This cannabis drying solution is meant for recreational cannabis production and can be used for curing as well.

Read all about our drying methods and our drying solutions on this page.

Properties of the drying cell:

  • Central in the Drying cell operation is a forklift carrying a Pallet-sandwich-unit.
  • Capable of drying 20-85kg (44-187 lbs) per drying cycle, depending on the chosen configuration.
  • Easily scalable.
  • Easily cleaned.
  • Temperature can reach 15 to 35°C (59-95°F).
  • Humidity levels can be controlled from 30-90%.
  • Airflow is set to a desired volume (m3/ft3)

In the drying cells, the Sandwich-units are stacked on a ventilation pallet. The pallet with 4 Sandwich-units is called a Pallet-sandwich.

Components of a Pallet-sandwich:
A. 4 Sandwich-units with 16-36 Canna-Trays
B. Ventilation pallet
C. Closing frame

B. Ventilation Pallet

A Pallet-sandwich is built on the Ventilation Pallet.
The Ventilation Pallet ensures easy, safe & efficient transport with a forklift.

Properties of the Ventilation Pallet:

  • Made of Stainless steel.
  • Front has 2 openings for easy & efficient transport by a forklift.
  • The back has big openings for process air to leave the Pallet-sandwich.
  • The top has a frame for 4 HEPA filters.
  • Easy to clean.
  • Size: 1600x 1220x 240 mm (65 x 48 x 9.5″)
  • Net weight: 110 kg (240 lbs.)

How is the Ventilation Pallet used?
It is used for forklift transport and for drying.
1st use is right after processing the harvest
2nd use is during the drying process
3rd use is during curing until packaging.

C. Closing Frame (anodized aluminium)

How is the frame used?
It is used in the Pallet-sandwich, keeping the 4 Sandwich-units together. Placed on top of the piles right above the HEPA filter and the filter pad layers. Preserves airtightness and gives strength to the Pallet-sandwich.

Cannabis drying closing frame

In a Pallet-sandwich, the filtered air goes top-down through the cannabis in a dark and clean environment.

Drying in this manner preserves the aromas, terpenes and cannabinoids.

Main parts of a clean Drying cell:
A-B-C: Pallet-sandwich consisting of Canna-Trays (A), Filters (B) and a Ventilation pallet(C)
D: Isolation panels
E: Roller shutter
F: Maintenance door
G: ventilators
H: Condenser
I: Heater

How is the Drying cell used?

  • A forklift driver, moving a Pallet-sandwich, approaches the drying room.
  • On the ABC software the driver remotely (on a tablet) opens the roller shutter. Automatically, all devices in the drying room turn off immediately.
  • The driver places the Pallet-sandwich in an empty space.
  • On the tablet, the driver closes the roller shutter of the drying room. Automatically, all devices in the drying room turn on.
  • The manager controls the process from his/hers device (tablet, pc, mobile phone or PC).

The Drying room – Details of How it Works:
• The ventilator (G) sucks the process air (U) through the Canna-Trays (A), filters (B) and pallet (C).
• The air dries the cannabis and the absolute humidity of the air increases.
• A part of the wet process air (W) flows through the condensation unit (H).
• In the condensation unit (H), the air cools down and water condensates.
• The cooler air (Z) blends with the process air (Y).
• The blended air goes through the heater (I) where the air is again brought to the desired temperature.

Configuring your own cannabis drying cell

The size of the Drying cell depends on your needs. The standard configuration is 5.24 meters (17.2 ft) high, 3.56 meters (11.7 ft) deep and 1.73 (5.7 ft) meters wide. The standard size is suitable for three to five Sandwich-units. A configuration with three Sandwich-units has the highest capacity.
A configuration with five Sandwich-units has a higher flexibility for your business operation.

Drying automatically

To arrange drying automatically; the temperature, humidity levels and amount of airflow are being controlled. Therefore, developed the ABC-processor. The ABC-processor allows you to dry as fast or slow as desired, drying in 3-15 days is possible. The ABC-processor is operated by a touch panel on the installation or by a mobile device. Each of our installations have a different version of the ABC-software.

ABC-processor for the drying room:

  • The ventilators are set at the desired amount of airflow, these can vary between the units.
  • One sensor measures the temperature and absolute humidity of the air that enters the units.
  • Multiple sensors measure the temperature and absolute humidity of the outgoing air of the Pallet-sandwich.
  • One sensor measures the air before it goes through the condenser and heater.
