Flavour Application

Flavour application is carried in a dedicated Flavour cylinder type CF, which can be supplied suitable for use with either non-alcohol or volatile alcohol based flavours.

The COMAS Flavour cylinder combines the process of final flavour application with mixing of the cut tobacco blend, prior to going to either the bin/case filling station, silos or cigarette makers. The flavour is applied using special air atomised sprays to apply a pre-set application rate, with the flavour contacting the tobacco as it cascades in even free fall in the cylinder, after being rotationally lifted and released. This combined with the continuous mass flow prior to the flavour cylinder and by lightly volumetric loading the cylinder, allows for 100% product contact with the flavour process.

The Flavour cylinder can be supplied with various options detailed below:

  • Variable cylinder rotational speed
  • Fully ATEX compliant or Explosion Proof to suit your local legislation
  • Flavour application system to suit your specification
  • Automated cleaning system
  • Application tanks with stirrer options

The above options allow us to provide you with a very best flavoured product that will benefit your secondary cigarette making department.

Every Flavour/mixing cylinder is supplied complete with a service cubicle that houses all the utilities application systems required for the flavour application process.
