Why Measure Moisture?

An instantaneous, accurate weight and moisture content increases product quality, decreases product loss due to rejects, and frees up personnel to work on other projects.

Other moisture analyzing methods take hours, destroy the sample, require highly trained personnel, are not as accurate and cost a lot more than a Fortè system.

The Fortè 4000 Series has a field proven record for accurately testing nuts, both in and out of shell, pharmaceuticals, seeds, dehydrated foods, snack foods, chemicals and a wide variety of other materials. References can be furnished upon request. The Forté 4000 will increase your productivity and pay for itself. Contact Fortè today to determine how quickly you could see a return on your investment.

Nuts - In and Out of Shell

Why Measure Moisture?

Forté instantly and accurately determines moisture content by using a harmless electromagnetic field that passes through the product. The Forté measurement is not a surface measurement. It “sees” 100% of the product sample. The measurement is taken in one second or less without contact, heat, or damage to the product.
