Abstract (en)

The method involves collecting tobacco particles (19) in areas with an increased incidence of particles caused by the mechanical load on the cigarettes. The collected particles are carried way and gathered together centrally. The particles are carried away by suction and/or transport elements such as conveyor belts. An Independent claim is also included for an arrangement for manufacturing or packaging cigarettes or other tobacco products.

Abstract (de)

Bei der Fertigung von Zigaretten, insbesondere aber im Bereich einer Zigaretten-Verpackungsmaschine, fällt verhältnismäßig viel Tabak als Abfall an. Dieser wird gezielt beseitigt durch Anordnung von Absaugorganen und/oder Abförderorganen für Tabakpartikel (19) im Bereich von Organen und Aggregaten der Maschinen mit erhöhtem Anfall von Tabak. Die abgesaugte Luft mit Tabakpartikeln (19) wird durch einen Tabakabscheider (45) hindurchgeleitet, der ein Abscheideorgan (48) zur Aufnahme der Tabakpartikel aufweist. Diese werden von Zeit zu Zeit dem Tabakabscheider (45) entnommen und in den Produktionsprozess zurückgeführt. <IMAGE>
