In the tobacco industry, the product range includes not only cigarettes, cigars and cigarillos, but also pipe tobacco and fine-cut blends. Processing tobacco, however, incurs many risks. In every production stage, readily combustible dusts and fibres occur which expose the entire production system to a high risk of fire and explosion. Readily combustible material can be ignited at any time by sparks, glowing particles and embers.
How extraction systems are deployed in the tobacco industry
Using NOVUS products in tobacco processing improves your employees' safety and protects machines, transport systems and storage locations. They can also provide more flexibility and ensure reliable production. This is especially important for quality assurance. Less air circulation and improved waste heat recovery also help lower energy costs.
NOVUS has the ideal solution for every processing stage – from mobile extraction units for product feeding points to a central extraction system. Innovative dedusting technology sustainably increases the safety, efficiency and quality of your production processes.

Extraction of explosive dusts
The speciality of the Novus Atex Deduster is the removal of explosive dusts. It operates by following a fundamental principle: it prevents the formation of a dangerous mix of oxygen, dust and sparks.
In tobacco processing, the type and size of an extraction unit are chosen depending on the nature and amount of the material to be extracted, and considering additional requirements.
