Tobacco Dust Amalgation (TDA) for tobacco processing
TDA – created by the Hauni Group’s Primary expert Garbuio – is an extremely gentle, space-saving and efficient solution for processing tobacco, tobacco dust and fibres in recon production.
Manufacturers employ a variety of production processes for the reconstituted tobacco used in HTP depending on whether they work with paper recon, cast/rolled sheet or granulates. The most widely used forms are currently paper recon and slurry recon. Both methods, however, pose major challenges for producers in terms of taste, drying and tensile strength of the material. They require a great deal of space and energy. Moreover, they are less than ideal for preserving the quality of the product.
"Our TDA makes no compromises. We have developed an alternative technology that is specifically tailored to the requirements of THP," explains Marco Morandin, Sales Director Primary. "The new process is gentle and has a remarkably small footprint." The compact systems can be expanded at any time and enable manufacturers to prepare tobacco and tobacco materials for THP – as well as for conventional factory-made cigarette applications – directly in the factory.
