Title (EN) SYSTEM AND APPARATUS FOR REDUCING TOBACCO-SPECIFIC NITROSAMINES IN DARK FIRE-CURED TOBACCO THROUGH ELECTRONIC CONTROL OF CURING CONDITIONS
(FR) SYSTÈME ET APPAREIL POUR LA RÉDUCTION DES NITROSAMINES SPÉCIFIQUES DU TABAC DANS LE TABAC FONCÉ SÉCHÉ AU FEU PAR LA COMMANDE ÉLECTRONIQUE DES CONDITIONS DE SÉCHAGE
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention relates to systems and apparatus for dark-fire curing of tobacco. Specially, the present invention provides a central control system for controlling and adjusting conditions within a structure utilized for curing dark-fired tobacco, for example by remotely turning the ventilation fan on or off. Additionally, the invention provides for an external smoking structure incorporated into the control system. This allows for simultaneous control of external smoking, that is smoking that is physically separated from curing, and the transportation of smoke into the into the dark-fire curing structure, in addition to the control of the curing structure itself.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des systèmes et un appareil pour le séchage au feu du tabac foncé. En particulier, la présente invention concerne un système de commande central conçu pour commander et ajuster les conditions à l'intérieur d'une structure utilisée le séchage au feu du tabac foncé, par exemple par la commutation à distance de l'état de marche/arrêt du ventilateur. L'invention concerne en outre une structure de fumage externe intégrée dans le système de commande. Ceci permet de commander simultanément le fumage externe, à savoir le fumage physiquement séparé du séchage, et le transport de la fumée dans la structure de séchage au feu du tabac foncé, en plus de la commande de la structure de séchage elle-même.
