Flavour application is carried out 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 the bin/case filling station, silos or cigarette makers. The flavour is applied by 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 of the cylinder, allows 100% product contact with the flavour process.
The Flavour cylinder can be supplied with various options, as 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 COMAS 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 services cubicle that houses all the utilities application systems required for the flavour application process.
