TE-10 Smoking Machine
The TE-10 is a microprocessor-controlled cigarette smoking machine that produces either side-stream or mainstream smoke (or a combination of the two) from filtered research cigarettes (non-filtered or standard size cigarettes smoking machines can be manufactured by special order).
One to ten cigarettes can be smoked at a time. Cigarettes are loaded into a magazine where they are automatically pushed into a wheel and lighted. The cigarettes are puffed according to FTC method and automatically ejected after a certain number of puffs. Expended butts are extinguished in water.
Smoke is captured in a chimney and transported to a collecting and mixing chamber for use in exposure studies.
