Filtrona Instruments & Automation Ltd, Milton Keynes, UK
The principles of sidestream smoke collection as ennunciated by the CORESTA Sidestream and Environmental Tobacco Smoke Task Force have been incorporated into the proposed smoking machine modification. The sidestream collection apparatus, which is based on the BAT"fishtail chimney", has been attached to the Filtrona Smoking Machine model SM 302. The smoking machine itself has not undergone major modification. Operational procedures and functions of the SM 302 and sidestream attachment are described for the cigarette set up lighting, smoking and puff termination modes.
