The Forté Series 8000 measures the average moisture content and Air-Dry % of every bale of pulp that you manufacture. The measurement is made automatically, in real time; right in the bale press while each bale is being produced.

Why Measure Moisture?

Accurate moisture determination has a direct effect not only on quality, but also on pulp mill 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.

With a Forté System, you can achieve 100% sampling and know that you are billing for all the fiber that you ship. 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 sensor and signal generator. The Forté electrode, which is mounted to your bale press platen, passes a harmless, low frequency electromagnetic field through your entire bale.

Forté Provides All of the Information You Need

The data that Forté collects is stored on the Forté computer and can be output to a mill-wide information system. The user interface is configurable as are the periodic reports which can be generated automatically.

Forté Systems are Flexible and Affordable

Forté designs and installs complete systems for any type of mill configuration: one cutter/layboy to multiple presses, two cutter/layboys to a single press, or any other combination to suit your needs.

Only Forté provides 100% sampling and the direct means to improve yield by one-quarter of one percent or more. A Forté System is the key to precise accounting for every kilogram of pulp produced in your mill. The typical Return on Investment is measured in months rather than years.
