Alcohol Recovery Technology - ART Dryers

Alcohol Recovery Technology - ART Dryers

IEC Thermo's ART Dryer allows you to manage your alcohol extracted biomass post-extraction.  

Why is this important?  The ethanol extraction process, even with the best centrifuges and screw presses, will leave your hemp biomass containing 30-35% ethanol.  This ethanol ladent biomass is both dangerous and expensive.  

Aside from the obvious flammable hazard ... for every 1000 pounds of expended biomass there is 300-350 pounds, say 40 gallons, of ethanol.  At $25/gallon this is $1,000 in lost profit for every 1,000 pounts of expended biomass your extraction facility produces.  That is $40,000/week of lost profit (for a 40 hour week).

The ART Dryer recovers that lost profit by safely removing the remaining alcohol, Ethanol and/or Isopropyl, from your biomass

The ART output:

  • Recovered ethanol and/or isopropyl alcohol for reuse
  • 100% dried post-extraction hemp biomass

We have pelletizing and other options available for this dried biomass

Capacities start at 1,000 lbs/hr. up-to 10,000 lbs/hr. per dryer
