Primary Tobacco Processing

Primary Processing departments are tasked with delivering a consistent tobacco blend to the secondary department. To achieve this, these three parameters must be controlled:

  • Moisture
  • Fill Value
  • Particle size

Moisture is the most controllable and Primary Departments need final blend moisture content of +/-0.5% within target.

With the need to measure moisture on the process line, any instrument must be able to withstand the environmental changes in the process without degrading its moisture value. The TM710e from NDC has been developed to achieve optimum measurement accuracy without showing sensitivity to:

  • Ambient lighting
  • Tobacco pass height
  • Ambient temperature and humidity
  • Blend variation

Moreover, the TM710e is engineered for an industry-best long-term stability making it the most reliable gauge available for tobacco process control.

And where there is need to measure samples taken from the process, the InfraLab Tobacco Analyzer provides rapid sample analysis with minimal preparation.
 
Both the TM710e Tobacco Gauge and the InfraLab e-Series At-Line Tobacco Analyzer are available in single component (Moisture) or multi-component (Moisture+Nicotine+Sugars) configurations.
