The Closed Loop Expansion Dryer employs a proven flash drying technology for tobacco. The closed loop drying and expansion system is a fully automatic process, which produces substantial increases in whole blend or stem expansion over conventional methods of tobacco processing. The use of low pressure superheated steam allows very fast, continuous processing. The key features of the CLED are improved expansion combined with low degradation, resulting in significant reduction in “loose ends”. The process ensures gentle and uniform handling of tobacco particles, which leads to stable product moisture control.
