Title
(EN) METHOD FOR DISPENSING THE CONSTITUENTS OF TOBACCO AND DISPENSER IN A MACHINE FOR MANUFACTURING PRODUCTS THAT ARE TO BE SMOKED
(FR) PROCEDE DE DISTRIBUTION DES CONSTITUANTS DE TABAC, ET DISTRIBUTEUR D'UNE MACHINE DE FABRICATION DE PRODUITS A FUMER
Abstract
(EN)
In order to increase the output of a machine for producing tobacco industry products, a flow of tobacco, consisting of strands and side flanks in addition to foreign bodies, is projected against a wall (20) in a dispenser (1), whereby said wall is provided with hollow profiles (22) and protuberances (24) that are arranged next to each other in the direction of the tobacco flow. The side profiles are aligned parallel to the flow of the tobacco. The dispenser comprises a channel (13) whereby at least one wall thereof (20) i.e. the wall against which the tobacco flow is projected, is provided with hollow profiles (22) and protuberances (24) placed side by side in the direction of the tobacco flow. A rotary cylinder (40) also provided with said profiles can be mounted at the bottom of the wall. A machine fitted with said dispenser yields a higher output due to a higher pick up rate for the sides thereof, while at the same time offering a substantial reduction in the duration of down times due to tobacco blockages.
(FR)
Pour augmenter le rendement d'une machine à fabriquer les produits de l'industrie du tabac, on projette un flux de tabac, contenant des brins, d'une part, et des côtes et des corps étrangers, d'autre part, dans un distributeur (1) contre une paroi (20) qui est munie de profils de creux (22) et saillies (24), disposés côte à côte dans la direction du flux de tabac. Les côtes sont alors alignées parallèlement au flux du tabac. Le distributeur comporte une canalisation (13) dont au moins une paroi (20), à savoir celle contre qui est projeté le flux de tabac, est munie de profils en creux (22) et saillies (24), disposés côte à côte dans la direction du flux de tabac. On peut en plus monter un rouleau rotatif (40), également pourvu de ces profils, au bas de ladite paroi. Une machine équipée de ce distributeur présente, en plus d'un rendement accru grâce à un meilleur taux d'enlèvement des côtes, l'avantage d'une réduction sensible des arrêts dus aux bourrages de tabac.
