FT-NIR is fast, non-destructive, and can analyze multiple components at the same time making it ideal for measuring the complex ingredients used in the tobacco industry. NIR spectroscopy can be used to assess the quality of incoming raw materials, monitor tobacco blends in real-time, control the application of additives, and monitor the quality of finished products.
Galaxy scientific offers off-line and on-line FT-NIR solutions for tobacco analysis that can be used to monitor parameters such as:
- Nicotine content
- Total and reducing sugars
- Total nitrogen
