More preferably, the first tobacco material is shredded into strips having a minimize width of lower than about zero.95 mm. Even extra ideally, the first tobacco materials is shredded into strips having a minimize width of less than about 0.9 mm. In most popular embodiments, the primary tobacco materials is shredded into strips having a cut width from about 0.2 mm to about 1 mm. Preferably, the second tobacco material is a natural tobacco leaf material.
By way of example, tobacco stems could also be ground to a fine powder and then mixed with tobacco dust, guar gum, and water to kind an aqueous slurry. This aqueous slurry may be forged and dried to type a reconstituted tobacco sheet. As another, suitable tobacco materials could additionally be blended in an agitated tank with water to obtain a pulp. This net is fed onwards to a press, where the surplus water is squeezed out of the net. Figure thirteen illustrates an apparatus 30 for the manufacture of a tobacco reduce filler in accordance with the current invention. A web 32 of reconstituted tobacco having a thickness T is unwound off a bobbin 34 and fed to a shredding device 36.
In addition or in its place, the method could additional comprise a step of adjusting the moisture content of the second tobacco materials. A home-made cigarette made using fine-cut tobacco may be referred to as both a Roll-Your-Own or a Make-Your-Own. This is dependent upon whether it’s rolled by hand using paper and tobacco, or whether or not it is made using a cigarette-tube filling machine. Several different tobacco blends, totally different curing technique and chopping strategies are used to make cigarettes. Cutting the primary tobacco materials in accordance with a first reduce specification setting a minimal of predetermined first cut width and first minimize size. [newline]A smoking article comprising a rod of a tobacco minimize filler according to any certainly one of claims 1 to 13. Figures 9 and 1 1 illustrate two examples of strips having a more complicated, “hybrid” form, wherein strip buildings having the same or totally different form considerably branch off each other.
Within a reduce strip of tobacco material, the sectional minimize width may be the substantially same for all of the strip parts. While this could be preferable, the sectional reduce width can also differ from one strip portion to another. Typically, prior to being minimize, a tobacco materials may endure other mechanical operations, similar to rolling or extrusion.
In addition, a second couple of blends was used, that contained 70 % by weight of natural tobacco particles and 30 percent by weight of reconstituted tobacco particles minimize in accordance with the specifications of Figures 1 1 and 12, respectively. Thus, the cut width of a person minimize strip is taken at the level along the length of the strip that yields the most important cross-sectional area. Further, the filling energy of the shredded first tobacco materials may be maximised by selecting an appropriate first cut specification. This leads to an improved filling energy of the reduce filler as an entire, particularly when the primary tobacco materials is mixed with a minimum of one other tobacco materials.
Even more preferably, the first tobacco material is shredded into strips from a sheet material having a thickness of a minimum of about 0.2 mm. In addition, or as an alternative, the first tobacco materials is ideally shredded into strips from a sheet material having a thickness of less than about 1 mm. More ideally tobacco pipe, the primary tobacco materials is shredded into strips from a sheet material having a thickness of lower than about 0.95 mm. Even more preferably, the first tobacco material is shredded into strips from a sheet materials having a thickness of lower than about zero.85 mm.
The yield of flat rolled stem which may be used immediately as filler is elevated, and the typical stem size and thus the average size of reduce filler from stem is increased. A tobacco cut filler based on any one of the previous claims having a filling energy of at least three.5 cubic centimetres per gram at a reference moisture worth of 12.5 percent oven volatiles. Accordingly, tobacco particles have been prepared from the same sheet of reconstituted tobacco according to the cut specification illustrated in Figure 12, wherein the cut width SCW1 is of zero.9 millimetres, the reduce length CL1 is of four.94 millimetres and the global width CW1 is of 12.50 millimetres.
