This is an automated scanner that uses microwave technology to analyze tobacco density profiles and moisture content along the entire tobacco rod. Suitable for laboratory and production environments.
Front and rear track cigarettes are scanned in batches. Profiles of the mean density of each batch are then displayed as a graph. The mean moisture content, mean density and density profile of each cigarette are measured. The difference between the current cutting position and optimum cutting position is calculated so that the maker can be adjusted. Densed end quality is also measured.
•User-friendly operation via touchscreen

•Random groups of samples can be profiled for density and moisture
•Individual rod profiles clearly displayed
•Profiles of filter rod density can also be created
•External 120-column printer
•Floor stand for instrument
•Plug-and-play barcode reader for easy sample tracing
