Tobacco Processing

Primary Tobacco Processing

Continuous Control Over Key Constituents

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.

Any measurement must be able to withstand the environmental changes in the process without degrading its moisture value.

NDC's industry-leading TM9000 on-line gauge is engineered for the very best long-term stability, making it the most reliable gauge available for tobacco process control.
