Abstract: front page image
(EN)A tobacco industry procedure wherein particulate reconstituted tobacco, exhibiting an inter-particulate adherence propensity, and a particulate anti-adherence agent are subjected to an intermixing process. A body of the intermixed anti-adherence agent and reconstituted tobacco particles is subjected to conditions which, absent the anti-adherence agent, would promote the occurrence of agglomeration of the reconstituted tobacco by inter-particle adherence thereof. The body of intermixed anti-adherence agent and reconstituted tobacco particles is then subjected to a separation process to separate the anti-adherence agent from the reconstituted tobacco. By use of this procedure the reconstituted tobacco can be stored under compacted conditions without the occurrence of agglomeration.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un procédé relevant de l'industrie du tabac dans le cadre duquel des particules de tabac reconstitué, ayant une propension à l'adhérence inter-particulaire sont soumises à un brassage en présence d'un agent antiadhérent. Le mélange d'agent antiadhérent et des particules de tabac reconstitué est soumis à des conditions qui, en l'absence de l'agent antiadhérent, favoriseraient l'agglomération du tabac reconstitué du fait de son adhérence inter-particulaire. Le mélange d'agent antiadhérent et des particules de tabac reconstitué est alors soumis à un processus de séparation afin de séparer l'agent antiadhérent du tabac reconstitué. La mise en oeuvre de ce procédé permet de stocker le tabac reconstitué sous forme de volumes tassés sans apparition d'agglomération.
