Durable, compact, portable
Separates fibers from hurd
The HurdMaster MD 1000 micro decorticator is intended for small cannabis farming and processing operations and for CBD and marijuana producers who want to capitalize on leftover stems. The machine is designed for separating the cannabis stalk’s woody inner core (hurd, shivs, shives) from the exterior bast fibers. The resulting hurd can be used for hempcrete construction, as animal bedding and animal litter, or as plant bedding. With additional technology, the separated bast fibers can be further processed for a wide, wide variety of applications.

- Produces shivs 5-30mm long for Hempcrete, animal bedding and plant bedding.
- We are developing separation machinery to divide the shivs (which can be separated in 3 parts such as fine dust – very good to add for lime plastering).

Kristaps Eglitis, who built the first prototype of the HurdMaster Micro Decorticator in his own shop, is by training an arts & crafts metal worker. The HurdMaster was inspired in part by his research of a decorticator project started years ago by Voldemars Cirulis, a Latvian developer, in the early 2000s. Kristaps is also interested in hempcrete construction and is insulating and reconstructing a family house from the material.
