Orion - now measuring moisture
The Orion with moisture test station is an integrated testing solution for traditional snus, white tobacco and nicotine pouches.
The instrument measures pouch weight, length, width, end seam width, longitudinal seam offset, pouch offset and now, for the first time, moisture ensuring that the manufacturing parameters you have set are being correctly applied.
Cerulean has developed a unique system for measuring the moisture content of the pouches based on resistivity and capacitance which is then correlated to the oven drying to produce a calibration curve. The measurements are made in seconds, which compares with 15 minute or more for an oven system.
