Pneumatic Transport and Classification System
Dust-free, high quality tobacco

Pneumatic Classification System purifies conditioned tobacco by removing foreign bodies and rejecting tobacco that falls outside the desired specifications.The conditioned tobacco produced by the DCC(C) usually contains a certain amount of foreign particles, as well as free dust. These must be removed to ensure the cleanliness of the final product. The Pneumatic Classification System contains a separation chamber where the sand, stones, foreign bodies and not fully opened tobacco products are separated. The remaining tobacco is transferred to the discharger, where free dust is separated from the tobacco by airflow.

ITM offers an Open Loop Classification System, where the dusty air is send directly to a filter unit, and a Closed Loop Classification System, where 80% of the air is recirculated, offering substantial energy savings.
