In nearly every regulated industry, products require testing such as pharmaceuticals, gasoline, or food and beverage. Should a product fail testing or regulatory standards, a company is at risk to lose substantial profit. Enter, process engineering. Modern engineering methods have streamlined the way owners reduce hazards to ensure a product reaches its highest quality while maintaining efficient production.
Epstein’s in-house process engineers work with our clients to take the guesswork out of cannabis manufacturing and facility design. Through our collaborative approach, we establish project requirements based on your desired outcomes. In short, we quantify the details.
We take these details and design the proper flow for it. Based on canopy size, we work with our clients to formulate the right equipment. In addition, we can also explain the best choice for your operation. For instance, what is your vision for packaging? Dependent on the product, dry hanging racks, wet trim or hand trim may be most suitable. Our team of designers present various options to best position our client to meet their established results.
A multi-rack grow function, for example, requires special consideration when it comes to trimming and harvesting, including Autocure to speed the drying process. Our industry-based research and experience through past designs serve as added value to our clients.
Similarly, sustainability elements such as condensate reclamation and various disposal procedures provide an elevated level of design while minimizing environmental impact. A small number of growers practice such measures; however, Epstein’s process engineers implement sustainability into our designs to mitigate the effects from indoor growing. Epstein’s vast knowledge of various types of grow light systems also allows our client to maintain and deliver a healthy, high-quality product.
