It is possible to differentiate various tobacco types fast with spectral imaging. This gives you the chance to varify the purity of your tobacco.
Tobacco segmentation example
Sample 1: Tobacco types with cut tobacco leaves, stalks and flakes
Below is an example of a tobacco sample shat has been segmented with spectral imaging in the VideometerLab. The sample contained 3 constituent types of tobacco: leaves, flakes and stalks.
- It was possible to discriminate the three classes spectrally for automatic quantification.
- As delivered the three samples had different structure - especially type 2 was a loose grainylike material while type 1 and 3 was entangles material.
- Because of the structure the delivered samples were not homogeneous mixtures but heterogeneous mixtures. Presented as done here type 1 and 3 were overrepresented in relation to type 2.
- To create the best and most representative quantification of constituents the samples could be cut into a finer grainy structure and mixed before analysis.
- Note: The grainy material could have been fed automatically into the VideometerLab using an automatic feeder.
