How simple, instant and non-destructive tests will save you time and money on your RH testing and strengthen your reputation.
When drying concrete after water intrusions it is important to monitor and measure the moisture content of the concrete in two phases: First during the drying phase; and again after the drying is complete.
Those of you who know me know I love a good gadget: a slick kitchen utensil, the newest most bad-ass mobile phone, one-of-a-kind tools - the list (and cost) is endless. Well, today I'm offering my praise for a recently introduced-to-market wood moisture meter. The Tramex Professional Pin-Type Moisture Meter PTM 2.0.
I can’t imagine that I’ll be doing a lot of product reviews through this blog and just to declare any interests, I was recently handed a Tramex MRH III to try out. I actually said at the time that I’d write a review but if I didn’t like it then I didn’t like it… Tramex didn’t seem worried and the brand certainly isn’t new to me, I already own a concrete moisture encounter and a Hygrohood. The Hygrohood in particular is a far better product than its nearest competitor, which I also own.
We use Tramex FeedBack DataLogger, which is a comprehensive way to assess the ambient conditions. Together with the Hygro-I2 probe, it gives accurate, reliable and easy to understand readings, that show in a definitive way the moisture contents in the concrete slabs, as well as the ambient conditions.
