Tramex Moisture Encounter ME5The Tramex Moisture Encounter ME5 , the updated Moisture Encounter Plus, is a non-destructive damp meter for detecting moisture in most building materials.
As a wood moisture meter, the Moisture Encounter ME5 provides actual moisture content % readings. The ME5 also functions as a dampness meter for drywall, plaster, roofing, tile and masonry to help determine moisture content levels in walls, ceilings and floors.
Dual Depth Moisture Detector
The Dual Depth feature of the ME5 dampness detector makes it possible, to determine where the moisture is located within the material. Shallow-depth readings, up to 9mm (⅜”), and deep-depth readings, up to 30mm (1¼”), can be used to compare surface moisture and core moisture and eliminate the influence of the substrate when testing coverings.
Wood moisture meter
ME5 is a pinless moisture meter for wood and is calibrated to read actual moisture content percentage (MC%) in wood without the need for pins damaging the surface. The wood scale shows a 5-30% moisture content range, Wood adjustment tables are available for specific wood type density adjustments where necessary.
Pre-calibrated for many building materials
Tramex Moisture Encounter ME5 detects elevated moisture levels, within the most common building materials and is pre-calibrated to the various densities of materials such as drywall, plaster, roofing, tile and masonry.
This general moisture meter detects moisture through paint, wallpaper, drywall, ceramic tiles, floor coverings, wood, ceiling tiles, roofing membranes, and asphalt composition shingles and makes it the best moisture meter for testing in, through and behind a wide range of building materials
