Tobacco Processing

InfraLab Tobacco Analyzer

Rapid, At-Line Analysis of Moisture, Nicotine and Sugars

The InfraLab At-Line Tobacco Analyzer is established worldwide as a viable, cost-effective alternative to the traditional gravimetric and CFA (continuous flow analysis) methods for the measurement of moisture, nicotine and sugars in Primary and GLT Processing. 

  • Enhance Product Quality and Consistency  through more representative process sampling
  • Intuitive, Easy to Use  requires no special operator skills
  • Test More in Less Time and Save – provides analysis results in less than 10 seconds, delivering substantial savings through cost reduction from routine sampling
  • Environmentally Robust – measurements unaffected by product and ambient changes such as temperature, relative humidity and factory lighting
  • Versatile  available in single- or multi-component measurement configurations

How it Works

Using multi-wavelength NIR (near infrared) reflection, the InfraLab does not require contact with the product sample.  Samples are simply presented in the sample bowl; the InfraLab then automatically recognizes the presence of the sample and starts its measurement sequence. In just 5 seconds, the measurements are displayed clearly on the screen.

Replacement for Laboratory Methods

The InfraLab e-Series Tobacco Analyzer features the speed, ease-of-use and, above all, robustness and repeatability that have made the InfraLab so widely used, with features that make replacement of laboratory methods even more convenient:

  • User-configurable multi-lingual interface
  • Pass code protection with configurable user access levels
  • Single or multi-component measurement configurations
  • Choice of sample dishes (deep or shallow rotating, or static petri dish)
  • Ethernet and LIMS connectivity
  • On-board storage of 10,000 sample files and fast download to USB memory stick

Samples are simply presented in the sample bowl; the InfraLab then automatically recognizes the presence of the sample and starts its measurement sequence. In just 5 seconds, the measurements are displayed clearly on the screen.
