The test results are in, and TRiQ System’s new Vulcan50 cannabis-drying machine lives up to its promise of providing top notch drying technology for commercial cannabis operation.
Recently, commercial cannabis grower Narrow Gauge Botanicals ran a test on TRiQ’s new Vulcan50 cannabis-drying machine. Lucas Sirois of Narrow Gauge reported satisfaction with the results of their maiden run.
“The product I get out is exactly what I want to see – 100% of the same quality product I put in,” Sirois said.
Sirois dried his 160 pound cannabis harvest down to 38 pounds, in the process reducing the moisture content from 78% to 18% in just eight days.
The process of drying cannabis is critical to maintaining its potency, odor, taste, and quality. Too dry and potency and taste are lost; too moist and conditions become optimal for disease and insects. Losing a crop to over-drying, mold or insects is painful, expensive, and avoidable.
As the High Times reports, “Curing and storing your sacred medicine is as important as getting your crop growing correctly. It’s amazing the number of people out there growing cannabis who don’t know how to cure their weed. If done correctly, your harvest can last a year or more, and still taste superb.
With the recent increase in cannabis commercialization, growers are finding the need to deliver a consistent, quality product while minimizing the risk of microbial contamination. The Vulcan50 takes some of the guesswork out of this critical processing step, allowing the user to have total, preset control over the final product.
As the world’s first cannabis-specific drying technology, the Vulcan50 carries the torch as the industry leader, standardizing cannabis drying in order to ensure consistent quality product.
According to TRiQ, the Vulcan50 drying machine provides absolute precision and consistency, removing the risk of product loss. The intelligent DryCurve technology draws down humidity to remove moisture, responds to the product as the moisture content lowers, and then utilizes precision control of the humidity to achieve the final preprogrammed moisture content. The optional Mold Eradication Function increases temperature and humidity to a mold eradication phase. A rapid cool down phase brings the chamber temperature and humidity to the preset, slow dry settings.
