Concrete Moisture Meter
Non destructive moisture meter for concrete
The TQC concrete moisture meter is robust, simple and easy to use making it a very popular tool in building maintenance. By measuring the electrical impedance the moisture content of concrete can easily be determined by simply pressing the instrument against the concrete surface. The electrical impedance is measured through generating a low frequency electric field between 8 electrodes at the bottom of the instrument. Depending on the moisture content the measurements are made to a depth of several centimeters. This system is not suitable for measurement of electrically conductive materials like metal or rubber linings or wet surfaces. The meter is ideal to quickly test large concrete floors or constructions which have to be painted or where wooden floorings are to be installed.
Four scales allow flexible use of the instrument as either an accurate measuring device or just as a detector to find moisture traces or leakage.
Gauge comes complete with built in probes, a soft pouch, batteries and an instruction manual.
