If you are looking to perfect the quality of your flower and dry/cure faster, you need a harvest freeze dryer or curing machine. These machines are an investment worth making if you are serious about the quality of your harvests and want to get your product to market as quickly as possible - all without compromising on quality.
Here at Hydrobuilder, we have an option for every grower - whether you're in the market for a home freeze dryer or a commercial curing machine, you'll find the right machine for you in our extensive selection.
And, you'll find the top products from the top brands - such as Harvest Right, AutoCure, and EZTRIM. Its time to take your harvest to the next level with the perfect drying and curing regimen - and that starts with a freeze-dry machine!
What Is A Freeze Dry Machine?
A freeze dry machine is the best way to blast through drying and curing - one of the most difficult, frustrating phases of the grow cycle. You can use these to dehydrate food or flower to produce ultra-long shelf life. In some cases, this food preservation method can lead to 25 years of shelf life!
With these machines, you simply place your buds, flowers, or food into the dryer. They are then frozen at temperatures between -30 and -50 degrees Fahrenheit. After they freeze, the machine creates a vacuum in the chamber.
As the product is slowly warmed, the water turns into vapors and evaporates out of the material, this process is called sublimation.
Once dried and cured to perfection the machine will notify the user the cycle is finished. From there you just need to place in airtight harvest storage containers until ready to use.
Don’t Risk Any Loss Of Quality During The Drying & Curing Phases!
There is no secret that the drying and curing phases can be the toughest and most frustrating of the entire growing season. You've put in 4+ months of hard work and invested all kinds of resources into your crop.
But if just a few minor details are missed during the final few days, your top-shelf flower could quickly lose its value. If you take out too much moisture - the flower becomes dry, brittle, and far less enjoyable to consume. The taste and aroma will be zapped from your buds.
On the other hand - if you don’t take out enough moisture, the flower becomes even less enjoyable to consume. Your buds will taste like wet grass - who wants that? Even more serious, the possibilities for mold and mildew problems rapidly increase.
So there’s no doubt - you need a foolproof drying and curing solution. Don’t leave anything up to chance when your investment is on the line - instead, opt for a freeze dry system or a curing machine!
Is It Worth Buying A Freeze Dryer?
Maybe you’re not convinced that freeze dryers are worth the cost - after all, these can be a pretty substantial investment for most growers. But let’s break it down in terms that everyone can understand: dollars and cents.
If you are looking for a way to increase profit margins, consistently produce a greater product, and speed up your harvesting process time, a curing machine or freeze dryer makes perfect sense every time.
Today’s freeze dryers provide a whole new opportunity for preserving and marketing your product in ways you never thought possible before. This expands your customer base and utilizes leftover crops that were not sold fresh.
One huge hurdle growers face is getting their flower to market quickly. You just spent up to 6 months growing it, and need to start selling it as soon as possible to begin seeing a return on all that energy, time, and money invested in the crop. But the drying phase is complicated and takes time - and as you now know, leaves tons of possibilities for error.
What if you could get your flower dried and cured in just a day or two? That's possible with a freeze dry machine or curing machine - which makes these a worthy investment in our book.
You can get your product to market quicker while ensuring the quality of your flower is where it needs to be - capable of demanding top dollar in the market. And thus, you will see a quicker return on all the work and money you dedicated to your crop this season.
Achieve Perfect Flower Quality, Aroma, and Flavor With A Curing Machine Or Harvest Freeze Dryer
When it comes to your harvest, quality and consistency are of the utmost importance, whether you are a hobby grower or commercial grower. Taking the time to learn and perfect your growing process is crucial, but the harvest and curing process is just as important.
Manually drying and curing your buds can lead to issues if a step is overlooked or rushed due to time constraints. Due to all the reasons we listed above, you need to invest in a more bulletproof drying and curing solution - that’s where these harvest freeze dryers and curing machines come into play.
Using an automated curing machine or harvest freeze dryer is a guaranteed way to get the best possible dry and cure you could imagine. Consistency is key, and that applies even more to drying and curing your crop.
Using a Harvest Right Freeze Dryer will preserve that amazing smell, color, and potency your flowers showed at harvest. If you want to learn more about the drying and curing process, visit our blog for a complete guide.
What Are The Benefits Of Using A Harvest Freeze Dryer or Curing Machine?
There are many reasons you should be using a harvest freeze dryer or curing machine for your flower. All of them can be boiled down to two reasons, though: quality and speed. Here are a full list of reasons you should invest in one of these freeze dry machines:
- Decreased dry time and processing from days/weeks to hours
- Maintains terpene profiles to maximize flavors and aromas
- The product remains in a "fresh" state
- Greater consistency
- Greatly reduces labor time
- Reduces waste
- Increases product end value
Is freeze-drying and dehydrating the same thing?
While freeze-drying and dehydrating your harvest accomplish the same thing, the efficiency in which they do so differs. Sure, you can dehydrate food - but freeze-dried food contains even less moisture content, making it a more efficient long-term storage method.
Dehydration removes 90-95% of moisture, whereas freeze-drying removes 98-99%. Freeze drying is one of the most efficient ways of removing moisture from your plant harvest. If you take too much moisture out, you’ll have to try and rehydrate your crop with humidiccants.
Whether you have fruits and vegetables or flowers, the answer is usually freeze-drying the product. And with the selection at Hydrobuilder - finding the right machine is easy!
