Protimeter | Moisture Meter
The Protimeter Surveymaster moisture meter can help building professionals (such as contractors, surveyors, home builders and architects) assess building moisture levels during new build and refurbishing activities.
Excessive moisture in buildings can lead to decay and deterioration of components and decorative finishes. Professionals involved with the identification, management and remedy of moisture need tools that help them to:
Protimeter moisture meters and hygrometers satisfy these requirements comprehensively. The Protimeter Surveymaster moisture meter is the preferred industry choice for surveying and investigating moisture in buildings.
This reliableProtimeter Surveymaster moisture meter has two modes of operation - search and measure. These functions can help the user to distinguish sub-surface from surface moisture, essential information when trying to establish the extent and cause of a dampness problem.
The search mode is used to assess the moisture level beneath the surface of solid walls and floors independently of surface conditions.
The nominal depth of the measurement is 3/4 inch (19 mm); this depends on the density and other characteristics of the material being measured. When held against the surface, as shown below, the instrument transmits a signal into the material.
The relative moisture level is shown on the digital display and its moisture condition is shown on the accompanying scale of color-coded lights.
This measurement presentation helps the user to:
Look for moisture behind wall and floor coverings, such as tile and vinyl.
Assess, in relative terms, if the material is in a dry, borderline or damp condition.
Map the extent of the problem numerically.
Non-invasive pinless radio frequency finds moisture at depth where moisture is not always directly visible—up to 3/4 in (25.4 mm) below the surface.
This mode of measurement is not adversely affected by the presence of surface moisture.
Applications: Shower pans, behind ceramic tile, fine finishes, water stains, tile and vinyl floor coverings, joists, around toilets, drywall, below grade floors and walls, plaster, masonry, concrete and concrete block.
Note: Metal additives in concrete can create false positive readings.
This mode is used to measure the moisture level at the surface and at incremental depth, when used with the auxiliary probes.
Measure mode readings are precise and specific to the immediate area of contact of the electrodes.
The actual moisture content of wood is shown on the digital display with the corresponding moisture condition shown on the accompanying scale of color-coded lights.
Wood Moisture Equivalent (WME) values are shown for other non-conductive, porous building materials.
Pin-type probes measure moisture in wood and other building materials (use provided wood species calibration chart for more precise readings)
Deep wall probes establish the presence of moisture in wall cavity insulation, sub and surface structures
Exterior Insulation and Finished Systems (EIFS) probe finds moisture in exterior insulation finishing systems
Hammer electrode for wood floor applications
Applications: Wood and wood floors, subfloors, drywall, concrete and concrete block, stucco, plaster, masonry and EIFS.
