We can now offer Tramex concrete moisture meter hire. We have added the all new Tramex CMEX5 to our fleet. Tramex are a leading and long established provider of moisture meters, scanners and data loggers. Tramex invented, designed and patented the first ever non destructive moisture meters.
The Concrete moisture encounter X 5 (CMEX5) is a non destructive digital moisture meter for concrete floors and slabs, providing instant and precise quantitative measurement of moisture content using gravimetric testing as a baseline. The CMEX5 also provides carbide method equivalent readings for concrete and other cementitious substrates as well as comparative readings as per ASTM F2659. It incorporates plug-in ports for the optional Hygro-i2® relative humidity probe testing per ASTM F2170 and heavy duty pin type wood probes. This moisture meter is the ideal all in one instrument for the surveyor, engineer or flooring professional.
Concrete moisture meter use
The CMEX5 detects and evaluates the moisture conditions within a slab or screed by non-destructively measuring the electrical impedance. A low frequency electronic signal is transmitted into the material under test via the electrodes in the base of the instrument. The strength of this signal varies in proportion to the amount of moisture present in the material. The CMEX5 determines the strength of the current and converts this to a moisture content value for concrete slabs and a comparative value for other cementitious floor screeds, displayed on a large clear digital dial.
We have the Concrete Inspection kit. This is for the instant and precise measurement of moisture within a concrete slab. It can also be used for gathering comparative readings in other cementitious floor screeds. It allows for testing to the following international standards: BS 8201, 8203, 5325 and ASTM F2659 & F2170.
The kit comprises of the CMEX5 moisture meter, a Hygro-i2® relative humidity probe & hole liners, calibration check salts and an infrared thermometer. The kit can be supplied with humidity floor boxes if required, or the CMEX5 can be supplied on its own for on the spot non-destructive measurement of a slab (up to a maximum 6.9% reading).
In addition to Tramex Concrete moisture meter hire, we also offer the Protimeter MMS2 kit.
