Canncas, a leader in the cannabis drying systems sector, made its entry into the industry by offering high-quality, stainless steel racks, trays and fully customizable equipment for the cannabis industry.
The goal for Canncas is always to push for a higher standard as they revolutionize the drying process through their line of products. However, in order understand the significance of their equipment, it is important to first understand how the drying process works.
The importance of drying
Drying and curing are the most important factors to creating a premium product. The drying process of marijuana plants begins right after harvest. Controlling the indoor temperature and humidity is essential and automating these factors can increase efficiencies and mitigate risks such as over drying buds, mold development and even THC deterioration.
With the ideal drying conditions, the average cannabis drying cycle will take 5-15 days depending on the shape, size and density of the buds. At the end of the drying process the marijuana buds should still contain a small amount of moisture for effective curing.
Curing – The final step in the drying process
The purpose of curing is to remove moisture within the bud and allows the product to continue to dry slowly. Successfully curing will ensure a high quality and more well-rounded product. Think of it like aging wine. Curing allows for the cannabis flower to develop a depth of aromas and flavours. It also extends product shelf-life due to a decreased vulnerability to mold.
The revolutionary Canncas Drying Systems
The Canncas Commercial and Industrial Drying Systems were designed with the cannabis producer in mind. Their systems create a complete solution for any size operation through better engineering, design and planning. Each system is equipped with a state-of-the-art advanced control system. With this system, the operator can control the drying environment to help with product management and tracking to ensure a high quality and consistent end-product every time.
The innovative air handling system provides well distributed and consistent air circulation in the drying chamber resulting in reduced drying time and improved product quality. Improved energy efficiency and lowered operating costs are also achieved. Canncas manufactures a wide range of drying chamber configurations for both commercial and industrial production and can be customized to suite individual needs and space requirements.
Adapting to the needs of the Industry – The Canncas Utility Wall
Like the industry itself, Canncas has continued to evolve and grow, adapting to the needs of the rapidly-changing cannabis industry. After much research and collaboration with producers, Canncas saw the demand in the industry for solutions that would help to increase efficiencies and product output while reducing downtime between product cycles and required sanitization.
The utility wall was designed with three main considerations in mind; lighting, airflow and irrigation. The utility wall features LED lighting on each rack level in order to optimize seeding and cutting propagation. Each rack bay can be controlled to adjust the desired air volume and direct flow to the rack. In order to supply water and nutrients to each rack level, the system is designed to support both supply line and drain line.
The rack trays have been specifically engineered to drain excess water which remediates the risk of root rot. Sanitation is of the utmost importance in the cannabis industry, so like all Canncas products, the utility wall is fully constructed from food-grade stainless steel.
Let’s grow together.
With an understanding that every customer’s needs are different, Canncas drying systems are completely customizable and can be configured to maximize plant floorspace. As a leader in the industry, Canncas has the passion and knowledge to provide quality equipment and services to meet any specifications. If you are in search of improving your production, their team of expert engineers will design a long lasting, high quality equipment solution for your needs.
