About HPLC

HPLC, LLC has unique low cost solutions to isolate plant compounds and reassemble them into custom products. We facilitate production of hemp products all the way from biomass through extraction, to the formulation of white label products as well as post production meta-material product lines.

We address the emerging and fundamental problems in the hemp processing, extraction and manufacturing sectors by utilizing proprietary processing techniques in the most cost-effective and environmentally sustainable manner. In doing so, we make full use of the extraordinary number of hemp-derived products (from bast-fiber, hurd, terpenes, cannabinoids, flavonoids,  to graphene and carbon-based energy-storage components) while substantially reducing the cost of production of all these derivative outputs

Drying and Milling

We offer drying solutions for any size job; from small scale drying box rooms, to box dryer units, to industrial scale biomass rotary drum dryers for hemp. Most of our drying systems have options for terpene capture and some of our solutions are delicate enough for smokable flower.

Crude Oil and Distillate Refinement

Our systems for crude extraction run batch or continuous. Our labs are a turn key solution and we offer assistance on licensing, staffing, SOP, installation, Method Development, and White Labeling Equipment.

CBD Isolate Production

Our Neutsche Filter Dryers are available at any scale for removing THC and other cannabinoids from your primary product. These units are perfect for creating isolated powder products, water soluble nano CBD products, and dry spray inhaler products.

THC Free and other PCR Isolates

THC remediation is completed through the use of High Performance Liquid Chromatography - a process of separating compounds dissolved in a solution state. In most places in the United States, High Performance Liquid Chromatography is also used as an analytical testing process.

Terpene Isolation

We provide scalable solutions for terpene isolation from drying to traditional plant steam extraction.

Ethanol Production

Industrial ethanol is used for extraction of Hemp and other plant products. Through our proprietary extraction solutions, our systems can create and recycle ethanol - significantly reducing the cost of processing.

Hemp Byproducts

Our system of pyrolysis is capable of producing Biochar, Syngas, and Biofuel. The Biochar can be converted into Graphene. The Syngas is used in our facilities to fuel Dryers, Evaporation, and Distillation of Ethanol.

Bioplastic and Hemp Plastic

Reactors, Compression Plastics, Aerogel, Graphene Plastic Hybrids, and Biodegradable "Compressed Wheat Straw" style production lines are available. These products create true economic and environmental benefits when combined with our other processes.
