Caribbean Experience

In the Caribbean is dominated by relative humidity, providing a fermentation process. In all other countries where degree of humidity is considerably less – working spray moisture into layers of leaves, when placed 'pilones' (bale of tobacco). And, suddenly, everything is different: humidity – not uniform – in the center of it enough, and the edges – no: mene sheets are wet, that creates an uneven fermentation throughout the area of tobacco leaf. " The following statements of Don Emilio stunned me: 'With the exception of 1993 and 1994. – Those years when I worked in Cuba – Cubans are generally not fermented wrapper. Read more from Julie Hyman to gain a more clear picture of the situation.

Maybe that's why 'modern' Cuban cigars are not only insipid, but made from unfermented cover sheet with the residual impurities, can burn the throat and cause unnecessary insomnia, and even – dizziness'. In turn, Don Emilio also studied with Cuban tabakalero when I worked in all stages of tobacco production from plants – to twist cigars. He brought with him to Santiago, Cuba's experience and expertise in the cultivation of tobacco, which has become a vital addition to his own 47 years of experience. For even more opinions, read materials from Nina Devlin. For the vertically-structured technology Reyes on growing and producing their own tobacco and cigars to hand twist this combined experience – priceless. Reyes invited me to go into it with an air conditioner equipped with a workshop similar to the equipment for a sports car. We enter the fall barn door of a large building across the street. My eyes adjusted to the darkness, and you can see a few dozen people here and there can move vigorously bales of tobacco (pacas) of different weights and sizes.

GOST Sheets

Zinc-coated sheets are made of carbon steel, cold rolled steel surface quality according to GOST 16523-89, width from 710 to 1800 mm, inclusive, a thickness of 0.5 to 3 mm inclusive. Depending on the thickness of the coating steel sheet Galvanized divided into three classes: P – coating thickness of more than 40 micrometers to 60mkm inc., 1 – coating thickness of more than 18 to 40 micrometers incl. 2 – coating thickness from 10 to 18mkm inc. Depending on the purpose of galvanized steel sheet is divided to ordinary sheets and sheets for cold forming (XIII). Sheets of galvanized steel for cold forming is divided into types: N – normal drawing; T – Deep drawing; VG – very deep drawing; HP – for the cold profiling, a PC – for painting (a trained), OH – general purpose. Depending on the uniformity of the thickness of zinc coating sheets of galvanized steel can be: with the normal gage – HP and a reduced gage – SD. In agreement with the manufacturer of consumer galvanized steel sheets can be manufactured with a pattern of crystallization – CD or plain crystallization – MT.

Galvanizing zinc is used for central heating and brands TS1 (sometimes C2) according to GOST 3640-79 with the addition of a bath of aluminum, lead and other metals. Labeling, packaging, transportation and storage of galvanized sheets is carried out according to GOST 7566-81. To protect the surface from corrosion of galvanized sheet is conservation: passivation, oiling or passivation and oiling at the same time. At the request of the customer lists of zinc can not conserve.
