Title
(EN) APPARATUS FOR FORMING A TOBACCO STREAM
(FR) APPAREIL DE FORMATION DU FLUX DE TABAC
Abstract
(EN)
Apparatus for forming a stream of tobacco comprises an endless air-permeable band (14), a suction chamber (34) from which suction is applied to one side of a lower reach of the band whereby tobacco can be attracted to and held on the opposite side of the lower reach, opposed walls (16, 18) which with the band define a channel (20) along which tobacco is transported by the band and displacers (70) for selectively displacing the lower reach of the band in a direction transverse to its direction of travel for displacing choke tobacco in the channel.
(FR)
Cet appareil à former le flux de tabac comprend une bande sans fin (14) perméable à l'air, et une chambre d'aspiration (34) à partir de laquelle s'exerce une aspiration d'un côté du tronçon inférieur de la bande. Il en résulte que le tabac est attiré et maintenu contre le côté opposé des parois opposées (16, 18) du tronçon inférieur avec lesquelles la bande définit un canal (20) le long duquel le tabac est transporté par la bande et les pousseurs (70) de façon à déplacer sélectivement le tronçon inférieur de la bande transversalement à son sens de défilement de façon à déplacer le foin de tabac dans le canal.
