We are bringing the R-2 Decorticator System to market. Farm equipment fabrication machine shops in Ontario are building the first units for 2019. We've been cutting steel and building machines.

This new R-2 design is based partly upon decorticator machines built for other crops, such as banana, pineapple, sisal and palm.  Hemp patents from the 1940's 1950's and 1960's were included in the design; updated with modern CAD design and material specifications.  Advances made over the past seventy years are significant when it comes to building farm equipment to handle hemp crops. 

You can see the entire AutoCAD system design fully completed via the Cutting Steel link below. CuttingSteelNLThis will show you the engineering layout of the unit. Prototypes were build early this year. Full scale machine heads were built early summer. Commerical decorticator assembly was completed and tested in August.

Progress on the project has picked up steam over the past month. Serious upgrades have been made with corresponding design changes. A significant decision is to include a bale unwinder as an integrated component. This ensures that the unit will be fully functional upon arrival.  A local company makes these units an "off the shelf" decision.  You will be able to load a bale immediately and begin work - without buying a suitable bale ripper or trying to make existing equipment "work".

Alliance Members will have access to more information and details on the site.  Alliance Members see the early results.  We have a full design update in the works.  You can see an early sneak preview of the full scale machine rotors from a few weeks ago via this link:rotors2

R-2 decorticator machine-head system is being built into a 40' "high cube" shipping container unit which includes all critical functions: power, input, processing, throughput, fire system, dust control & waste handling. This is a self-contained, semi-portable integrated unit designed to be run outdoors.  You are welcome to install the R-2 in an outbuilding for year round processing.  Product specifications include the following list of features, systems and assemblies included in the system. 

 

1. Target output 2 – 4 tons per hour w/ bale feeder @ front end.
2. Completed CNC files for volume manufacturing.
3. Unit is built into a 40' sea container for delivery to farms via transport.
4. Electrical power systems.
5. Emergency stops installed - safety shields installed.
6. Machine brochure: (developed in-house)
7. Spec sheets plus photos - video of machine turning out fibre. (developed in-house)
8. Full technical & service manual. (developed in-house)
9. Parts & service arrangements (i.e.: parts on-shore in four locations)
10. Dust handling system installed.
11. Waste handling outlets installed.
12. Fire suppression system.
13. Diesel power & hydraulic genset
14. Painted a nice green colour.
15. Machine "ready for prime-time" w/ minimum farm-level CSA approval for export.
16. Ready w/ a minimum farm-level CSA approval for export to US & Europe.

This year, 2019 we are offering a co-operative alliance to hemp growers / processors. The first ten machines are reserved for Alliance Members. We do have TWO spots open for new members as of Aug 14th.  Alliance Members will receive on going benefits from this strategic alliance. In exchange, we request operational reports, field testing and duty cycling. Any changes, modifications or upgrades will be incorporated for all Alliance Members prior to final CNC files & specs for mass production next spring. Alliance Members will be offered materials contracts for fibre and core production.

Anyone who would like to join the R-2 Decorticator Strategic Alliance is invited to contact us via email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or phone 1 416 939-6143 and talk to Bruce Ryan.

As this project proceeds, we are updating our Alliance Members on a regular basis. Site members (via the Strategic Alliance page) can review the R-2 project and receive membership information.
