Tobacco NIR Gauges

Accurate moisture control has a strategic impact both in Primary and GLT processes: controlling blend moisture is critical to achieving the fastest making speeds and the target in-pack moisture content.

 

NDC On-line measurement performance; NDC has engineered its gauges and measurement solutions to meet the precise product and performance requirements of the Tobacco Industry.



For NDC at-line measurement, the InfraLab e-Series At-Line Tobacco Analyzer provides fast, accurate single or multi-component measurements. The InfraLab, also available in moisture only and multi-component formats makes short work of tobacco analysis. With a 5 second measurement period per sample, InfraLab is the most viable alternative to the gravimetric moisture testing oven, as well as the continuous flow methods for nicotine and total reducing sugars.

 

Our on-line and at-line tobacco measurement solutions are available for:

 

    • Tobacco leaf processing
    • Primary tobacco processing
    • Reconsituted sheet tobacco

 

NDC TM710e is the definitive Tobacco Gauge, with full process integration capability thanks to its Ethernet communications backbone and the ability to communicate through all common Fieldbus protocols. TM710e is available in two configurations:

 

    • NDC TM710e Tobacco Moisture Gauge
    • NDC TM710e Multi-component Tobacco Gauge
    • Both NDC configurations are available with an optional integrated or remote tobacco temperature measurement. Analog connectivity to the process is also available via the HMI and UserPort 710e Devices.

 

For at-line measurement, the NDC InfraLab e-Series At-Line Tobacco Analyzer provides fast, accurate single or multi-component measurements. The InfraLab, also available in moisture only and multi-component formats makes short work of tobacco analysis. With a 5 second measurement period per sample, InfraLab is the most viable alternative to the gravimetric moisture testing oven, as well as the continuous flow methods for nicotine and total reducing sugars.
