Why Measure Moisture?

Accurate moisture determination has a direct effect not only on quality, but also on invoicing and bottom line profits.

Why Use a Forté System?

Other moisture analyzing methods take hours to complete, destroy the sample, require highly trained personnel, are not as accurate, and/or cost a lot more than a Forté Moisture Measurement System.

Forté 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. With a Forté System, more samples can be tested which leads to better control of production and the fibers can be billed at the maximum rate. At the same time, your customers’ will benefit by knowing they are getting exactly what they are paying for.

How Does the Forté System Work?

The secret of each Forté System is in its electrode sensors and signal generator.  The electrodes are contained within the two sides of the Forté Test Cell.  The signal generator passes a harmless, low frequency electromagnetic field through the entire mass of your product – not just the surface.
