Product Information

TRAMEX MOISTURE ENCOUNTER ME5 FOR BUILDING MATERIALS 

The Tramex Moisture Encounter is a dual-depth, non-destructive moisture meter for instant moisture measurement and evaluation. Deep depth penetration up to 1.25" (30mm) & shallow depth penetration up to 0.40” (10mm). With 5 Ranges of sensitivity, including wood & timber, shallow depth, drywall & roofing, plaster & tile, and masonry, the Moisture Encounter device is ideal for testing in and through a wide range of materials within the building envelope. It will basically handle any job you throw at it.

 

The Moisture Encounter detects and evaluates moisture conditions within various building materials by non-destructively measuring the electrical impedance. A low frequency electronic signal is transmitted into the material via the electrodes in the base of the instrument. The strength of this signal varies in proportion to the amount of moisture in the material under test. The device will determine the strength of the current and converts this to a moisture content value, displaying it on a large, clear analog dial.

 

Features:

  • 5 Ranges of sensitivity: wood & timber, shallow depth, drywall & roofing, plaster & tile, and masonry
  • Dual-depth penetration allows for comparative of surface and core moisture and elimination of substrate influence on the testing of coverings
  • Deep signal penetration, up to 1 1⁄4" (30mm) in wood and drywall, detects elevated moisture through most covering materials without having to damage or puncture the materials being tested
  • Shallow depth scale is designed to have a field penetration of up to 10mm (0.4 inches)
  • Wide range of readings from 5% to 30% on wood scale and 0 to 100 on comparative scale for all other materials
  • Detects moisture through paint, wallpaper, drywall, ceramic tiles, floor coverings, wood, ceiling tiles, roofing membranes, and asphalt composition shingles
  • Bluetooth connection to accompanying IOS or Android app allowing for continual development and integration of apps and reporting 
  • Hold function which enables the user to “freeze” the reading, useful when taking readings where the meter face may not be visible
  • High Moisture Audio Warning tone which can be enabled or disabled
  • Large, clear, easy-to-read analog display giving meaningful readings
  • Rugged, ergonomically designed enclosure

 

Uses:

  • Used for locating moisture-related problems within and behind a variety of building materials in the building envelope
  • Mapping the extent of moisture damage caused to buildings
  • Monitoring progressive drying conditions in the drying process of building materials and surfaces
  • Dual-depth penetration allows for comparative of surface and core moisture and elimination of substrate influence on the testing of coverings
