Brabender moisture analyzer in use in the tobacco industry

As a globally operating manufacturer of laboratory equipment, a production facility of China Tobacco was visited during a roundtrip in Kunming (China).

Since the moisture content of tobacco is an important quality criterion, the laboratory equipment used must meet high demands on the accuracy of the results, the reproducibility of several tests, the speed of analysis and ease of use. 

For this reason, the two local laboratories use a total of seven Brabender Moisture Analyzers in 24-hour operation, which corresponds approximately to a daily number of several thousand samples. 

"We are very satisfied with the Brabender Moisture Testers", said Mr. Liu (President of China Yunnan Redry Leaf Tobacco Group). “The quality ‘Made In Germany’ is an integral part of our consistent quality control of raw tobacco.”
