The engineers at MoistTech have developed longstanding relationships with tobacco processors to not only better understand the demands of tobacco processing, but also to ensure that the instrumentation provided meets processor needs for measuring nicotine. With more than 40 years experience serving the industry, MoistTech has developed non-contact measurement systems that outperform and outlast their competitors. Specifically for the tobacco processing industry, MoistTech developed the IR-3000 near infrared moisture sensor with the Model 828 tobacco moisture gauge. In addition to measuring tobacco moisture, this system accurately measures nicotine and other tobacco components.
MoistTech’s Model 828 was built to perform in even the harshest industrial environment. Its sensors are insensitive to material variations, including particle size, material height and color, and product temperature. In addition, the instrumentation is not affected by small gaps in the production line, dust, inert material, foreign objects, ambient light, ambient humidity, or ambient temperature. Contact us for more information about how the Model 828 is the most rugged, durable, non-contact, near infrared, measurement system capable of measuring nicotine in tobacco on the market today.
The Model 828 gauge provides continuous, accurate, drift-free measurements of moisture, nicotine, sugars, flavors, and temperatures, allowing operators to make necessary adjustments in line, in real time. The precision filters and algorithms are factory pre-calibrated to optimize performance in the demanding conditions of tobacco processing. No routine maintenance is required, preventing downtime during production.
