Tobacco Threshing Moisture

One of the main methods of processing tobacco today is threshing.


Threshing involves conditioning tobacco with heat and moisture so that it becomes pliable enough to enter the threshers.

If the correct amount of moisture is not maintained, the midribs of the tobacco leaf will not be removed properly. When too many stems are present in a cigarette, they may pierce the cigarette tubes, resulting in losses.


From the start of the threshing process to packaging the final product, moisture is key to producing quality tobacco.


MoistTech tobacco threshing moisture sensors measure moisture levels to within tenths of a percent. Our instruments help you monitor moisture and other levels to help you create the highest quality tobacco products possible. With our instant non-contact measuring capabilities, MoistTech sensors are the ideal choice for your tobacco processing needs.
