The continuous measurement of moisture in tobacco is a key consideration in the production of tobacco.? The proper moisture level of finished tobacco has an impact on production speed and tobacco quality.? By installing the MCT360-T in the processing area, a manufacturer can continuously monitor the moisture content and either manually or automatically make control decisions.
The MCT360-T is typically installed over a full conveyor prior to the making area.? ? The MCT should be positioned about 8″ from the tobacco bed and perpendicular to the moving conveyor.? It is always to important to make sure during the MCT’s installation there are no gaps or interruptions in the product flow.
Moisture measurement in finished tobacco is a vey well understood and documented application.? NIR wavelengths, calibrations,? algorithms and sensor optical parameters are pre-set at the PSC factory.
