Suitable pure tobacco leaf supplies embrace tobacco lamina, tobacco stem materials and tobacco stalk material. The pure tobacco leaf materials used because the second tobacco material might include any type of tobacco leaf, including for instance Virginia tobacco leaf, Burley tobacco leaf, Oriental tobacco leaf, flue-cured tobacco leaf, or a mix thereof. A tobacco reduce filler according to the current invention comprises a primary tobacco materials cut in accordance with a first minimize specification, wherein the first cut specification sets a minimum of predetermined first minimize width and first minimize length. The term “filling energy” is used to explain the quantity of space taken up by a given weight or mass of a tobacco material. The higher the filling power of a tobacco materials, the decrease the load of the material required to fill a tobacco rod of normal dimensions.
A tobacco minimize filler based on any one of many preceding claims, whereby the first tobacco material is shredded into strips having a cut length from about 5 mm to about 60 mm. A tobacco minimize filler according to any certainly one of claims 2 to 4, wherein the second tobacco material is a pure tobacco leaf materials. An angle of ninety levels Filling cut tobacco was thought-about to be undesirable, in that it will lead essentially to a shape fairly much like the form of Figure 6, and so an angle of 60 levels was chosen for the “V” parts. Further, the strategy ideally comprises the step of blending the minimize first tobacco material and the cut second tobacco materials.
Should one such particle break at a location in the central V-shaped portion, the two ensuing components of the particles would still be effectively V-shaped. The highest CCV values were obtained for minimize specification no. three, which considerably corresponds to particles having a Y-shape. However, it was found that when particles were produced from the same sheet of reconstituted tobacco based on reduce specification no. three are produced, a major fraction of the tobacco materials went to waste. These correspond to the shapes illustrated in Figures 9 and 10, respectively, for which the values of CCV listed within tobacco pipe the following Table three had been measured. Tobacco minimize fillers based on the present invention may be ready by a method comprising providing a primary tobacco material and slicing the first tobacco materials in accordance with a first cut specification setting no much less than predetermined first cut width and first minimize length. Tobacco reduce filler in accordance with the present invention may be integrated into a variety of smoking articles.
In some embodiments, tobacco minimize filler based on the invention could also be used in the tobacco rod of a flamable smoking article, such as a filter cigarette, cigarillo or cigar. Alternatively, the reduce filler could additionally be used to provide the tobacco aerosol generating substrate in a distillation primarily based smoking article, or an electrically heated smoking system. Alternatively, the cut filler could also be used as a roll-your-own or make-your-own product, or free tobacco product to be used in a pipe.
More preferably, the primary tobacco materials is shredded into strips having a minimize width of less than about 0.95 mm. Even more ideally, the first tobacco materials is shredded into strips having a minimize width of lower than about zero.9 mm. In most popular embodiments, the first tobacco materials is shredded into strips having a minimize width from about zero.2 mm to about 1 mm. Preferably, the second tobacco materials is a natural tobacco leaf material.
