Hops & Hemp

Our low temperature hops & hemp bud pelleting solutions allows for the best lupulin and CBD extraction. We have a full line of small hemp processing equipment from the buds to the leaves.


Leaders in Small Scale Low Temperature Hops/Hemp Pelleting

In 2008 Kovo Novak was the first company worldwide, to develop low-temperature hops/hemp pelletizing by creating a specific die for low friction. With our first system being installed in California, since then we have sold hundreds of systems throughout the world, including the hops/hemp belt of USA and Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Asia, and of course Europe. We have had great success with premium brewers and extraction companies who test and process hops/hemp.

Since our first system was developed, we have continued to develop machinery that produces premium hops/hemp pellets without the use of liquid nitrogen, including hops/hemp bale breakers, low impact grinders, mixers and conveyance equipment.

We now have small-scale hops/hemp mills for use on farms who have under 5 acres and want to keep the quality on farm.
All of our systems come with the option of on-farm installation and training, so you're not left in the dark! Our hops/hemp systems are designed from the ground up with hops/hemp in mind! All our hops/hemp grinders and mills are designed with low temperature and easy cleaning and maintenance in mind.

BN Hybrid Model

Our popular 10-hp Bonsai (BN) mill has had a facelift. We rounded off the inside of the feed hopper to prevent material filling the corners. We also added a screener and our new pre-feed grind and hopper, which allows hops/hemp customers to grind up to 500 lb at a time and auger feed to the mill line. 


You can choose from hops/hemp grinding and shattering equipment from our 3- to 10-hp hammer mill or 20- and 30-hp multi-grinder units capable of handling many 1000s of pounds of hops/hemp per hour. All our grinders come with our specially patented hops/hemp screen to prevent loss of lupulin and heat transfer while grinding.

Collection Systems

We offer a broad range of collection systems for the ground hops/hemp. Select from small barrel collectors as well as purpose-built collection silos. All systems collect the ground material and easily transfer either manually or mechanically to the mill line.

Fines Removal & Pellet Tumbling System

All our LM range of mills include a fines removal and pellet-tumbling system that removes waste material and cools the pellets close to ambient temperature. The fines removed in this process are not wasted; they are returned automatically to the feeder system on the mill to be re-pelleted.

Integrated Conveyors

We build to suit integrated conveyors and transporting systems for any type of bagging or storage feed application.

Hops Processing Equipment

Our 20-hp grinder to mill line for hops/hemp. We pride ourselves on the best low temp hops/hemp pellet making machinery. This line was also designed to allow the grinding of straw and hay bales so the mill can be used year round, not just during hops/hemp season.

About Our Hops/Hemp Mills

We have variously sized mills depending on the output required and the amount of labor you want to do. Our small BN line (10-hp) can be manually fed with ground hops/hemp and is ideal for the hobby farmer or small grower (up to 9 acres). Our range of products can manage up to 600lb/hr of hops/hemp pelleting for larger commercial operations. Whether you buy small or large the results are the same: premium hops/hemp pellets with no heat damage and intact alpha acids and oils.
Our specially designed hops/hemp screen grinds the material to the perfect size for pelleting without generating heat. The lupulin and oils are spread evenly throughout the feedstock for perfectly even pellets.
