The PackMoist Laboratory Moisture Tester uses Radio Frequency Dielectric Technology to provide an accurate moisture measurement of 20 cigarettes in their finished state of production. Simply placing a complete pack of cigarettes in PackMoist’s cylindrical test chamber provides an instant moisture measurement displayed on its Operator Interface.
Prior to PackMoist’s development the need to test cigarettes in their finished state of production had been accomplished through Near Infrared Reflectance (IR) laboratory gauges. This method of testing required manufacturers to carefully remove the tobacco from the cigarette casing and place the contents in its test bed. Providing a simple and non-destructive alternative to this messy and wasteful process was the objective behind PackMoist’s innovative design.
