Pellet Mills for CBD and Hemp

Buskirk Engineering designs for legal cannabis industries.

Pellet mills find a role in two phases of the legal CBD oil industry. 

Pre-extraction. Before CBD can be extracted, hemp products must be transported from field to factory. Pelletizing cannabis reduces shipping volume while safeguarding quality with low operating temperatures. CBD producers tell us that using pellets increases extraction efficiency and can boost yields by five to six percent. Lower transportation costs and higher yields means our machines can pay for themselves very quickly. 

Post-extraction. Hemp is a tough, fibrous plant. Stalks and other byproducts quickly create large volumes of agricultural waste. Buskirk Pellet Mills are tough enough to break down this material into useable biofuels, food additives, and other pelletized products. 

Hemp Processing System Solutions

All of our hand crafted equipment leaves our shop finished in either food grade powder coat or stainless steel, meeting all current FDA processing standards.

Liquid Nitrogen is not needed in our pellet mills thanks to our high torque, low RPM mill design. What does that mean, you ask? The lower the RPM, the less friction, in return creating less heat. We’ve designed an ideal solution for processing Hops and Hemp.

We do not simply import and mark up equipment. Everything is manufactured in-house and is powered by Sumitomo Motors and Gear Boxes. Simply put we are not handcuffed by a certain design, or build. It’s really the reason we are called Buskirk Engineering and not Buskirk Mills.

Let’s talk. We believe communication is everything. Knowing what YOU the grower needs is the first step. Everything we offer was carefully designed with the possibility of future expansion in mind.


Like any craftsman, we take great pride in what we do, offering the very best equipment money can buy. So, what are you waiting for #GrowWithUS
