Actual factory and process configurations could vary, but our industry experts know them all.
Dried leaves are brought in from the fields. The leaves are picked and sorted, all by hand. Conditions in the processing plants, which run round-the-clock, are difficult; the operating environment is very dusty.
In this step, the lamina is separated from the stem and dust and small foreign particles are filtered out.
In this step, seals need to be airtight and belt material needs to be tobacco-proof, compressible and wear-resistant. The lightweight rubber fabric range with its natural rubber inner layer has all of these characteristics. The tumblers are fed by incline conveyors.
After threshing and tumbling, all the moisture must be removed from the leaves to make them suitable for transport.
Dry leaves and stems are packed separately in carton boxes to be shipped around the world. Hydraulic steel pushers are used to optimise box-filling.
