Tobacco industry is the industry that consists of all the activities engaged from growing tobacco leaves to the distribution network of tobacco products. All preparation of sales activities, advertisement, tobacco manufacturing and shipment are also included in the scope of the tobacco industry. Tobacco industry is a global industry despite its additive nature. Tobacco leaves are able to grow in most of the continents with warm and moist air conditions which make it possible to produce and manufacture tobacco products globally.

After tobacco plants are harvested, the first process is to sort the leaves according to the grades based on size, quality. After sorting into homogenous lots, tobacco leaves are ready to deliver to manufacturers. Upon receipt of homogenous tobacco leaves lots, second processes are performed by cigarette manufacturers. Tobacco leaves, flavouring and other tobacco-based components are blended in the environment with adjusted moisture content. Top flavourings usually are added in the last steps because they are alcohol based. Flavouring improves the quality of smoke and makes the product more appealing to consumers. The flavours may be also added to filter or foil wrapper to enhance the tobacco flavour.

Machines automatically roll the shredded tobacco into a continuous roll of cigarette paper and produce at a pre-set cigarette length. The cigarette packs are mechanically sealed in cellophane and hand-placed in cartons. Some countries regulate the size of cigarette packages, in terms of the quantity of cigarettes contained

Many countries have passed the laws to have some restrictions on smoking due to the medical evidence of side effects of tobacco usage. Despite heavy tax imposed on tobacco products to discourage people not to smoke, the production of tobacco products is still a positive trend with yearly output of more than 6 trillion cigarettes since the year 2000.

In past decades, the share of tobacco sales controlled by the world’s leading tobacco companies almost doubled. With the goal of increasing market share in emerging markets and maintaining market share in developed markets, a trend is observed in tobacco companies merging in global scale. In the last 2 years, the global tobacco market composed of cigarettes has increased with the total population growth in Asian market. Consumption of mature markets declines but consumption of emerging markets outgrow. Tobacco companies increase their profitability by pricing strategy of increasing tobacco product price.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS

T

he process of making Cigars has been almost automatically produced. During the primary process of production, the tobacco is treated with the proper amount of vapor and water in order to make it pliable and elastic. Then, it is cut in the form used for cigarettes. This phase is a critical process that needs to control the humidity as if it is very dry, the leaves will be crumble and will transform into dust and if it is too moist, it will rot away in storage.

Ferrari tobacco industry fans or burner fans, are set up in a drying system, operate at high temperature conditions. Another application is the main fans that control the overall ducting pressure in the production line. Throughout the production line, several parameters of the cigarette are measured in order to guarantee its top quality. Some of these are: circumference, pressure drop, ventilation, firmness, paper permeability, humidity, and loss through the tips. The package sealing is measured to ensure that the right content of humidity is preserved.
