Tobacco must be kept at high humidity to keep leaf moisture at 16-18% and prevent crumbling. Adding high humidity, 60% or more, to large storage rooms, allows the tobacco leaf to breathe-in water vapor, without the wetness that blackens leaves and causes mold. The Tabor FogRight Atomizer provides true "dry fog" for high humidity in tobacco storage.
Optiguide's Tabor FogRight Atomizer can also provide the controlled humidity solution at several stages of tobacco product production.
 
Heating Sheds
Italian tobacco producers have found the solution to their curing problems. To quick-cure the tobacco, Italian processors use heating kilns to dry the leaves at 70 C over a 4 to 7 day period.
The Tabor FogRight Atomizer gives better results faster, cheaper, and easier than steam or spray systems in heating kilns:

The Tabor FogRight Atomizer uses high-velocity compressed air to produce a true "dry fog" of micro-droplets. The foggers are installed above the tobacco so that the droplets evaporate into the air before they reach the tobacco. The water vapor increases relative humidity in the air without wetness. Tobacco leaves absorb the humidity, adding moisture and flexibility to the leaf, and preventing crumbling.
Moisture remains in the leaf.
Leaves remain flexible making processing easier.
Leaf spines remain dry and brittle.
Leaves don't crumble reducing loss and saving profits.
Low maintenance due to the FogRight's large non-clogging nozzle, with no moving parts.
Uniform RH throughout the storage area, with no wetness.
Simple, reliable RH control.
Easy modular installation: You can equip one curing room and add a dozen, install in a small or large warehouse.
 
The Tabor FogRight Atomizer has been installed in hundreds of tobacco curing sheds in Italy, and tobacco storage warehouses in Mexico.
