The R-2 Mobile Hemp Decortication System can be installed on a farm or trailer mounted for semi-mobile operation. This affordable large-scale decortication technology is much less expensive than higher priced options designed for handling industrial-scale loads.
The R-2 system is built into a 40-foot “high cube” shipping container, providing a fully integrated unit with all critical functions: power, input, processing, throughput, a fire system, dust control and waste handling. The self-contained, semi-portable unit can run outdoors powered by diesel. Permanent installations require only a cement slab and an industrial electricity supply. The R-2’s modular design offers the necessary flexibility for cost effective future expansion of processing operations, and more.
Design of the R-2 decorticator, which has been six years in research and development, is based partly on processing machines built for other crops, such as banana, pineapple, sisal and palm. The design also incorporates patents on hemp processing technology from the mid-20th century which were updated with modern CAD design and material specifications.

Alliance program: Under CannaSystems Alliance program, company experts follow R-2 units out the door and work closely with customers, monitoring their experiences and the machines’ performance. Input from those initial partners will be used to make any needed refinements to the machine. Any upgrades made will be offered to all Alliance members at no cost. Alliance members also get dealer-priced discounts of 30% on their purchases, paying just $225,000, and receive continued dealer pricing for any future purchases. This program is limited to 10 participating buyers.
