Solving Problems in Cannabis Milling

Processing the cannabis plant for extraction is undertaken with the aim of maximizing the yield.  If particles are too big not all of the yields will be obtained; too small and product yield will be lost through the generation of fines.

If the prepared cannabis material isn't handled carefully the oils and terpenes will be destroyed, reducing yields and ultimate product quality.

Scaling up can be a challenge as what worked in the pilot or lab phase can be difficult to achieve at the production scale.


Plant to Powder Processing

The Quadro Comil is the ideal cannabis milling machine as it provides reliable particle size reduction for a high yield during the CBD extraction process and when processing CBD isolate.

Low-temperature processing and milling ensure oils and terpenes are protected and deliver a high quality product.

Quadro mills are fully scalable - results on our SLS lab-scale equipment are replicated at both pilot and production scale without the need for complicated changing of parameters.
