Search Mode—Non-Invasive Pinless Moisture Search

The search mode is used to assess the moisture level beneath the surface of solid walls and floors independently of surface conditions. The nominal depth of the measurement is 3/4 inch (19 mm); this depends on the density and other characteristics of the material being measured. When held against the surface, as shown below, the instrument transmits a signal into the material. The relative moisture level is shown on the digital display and its moisture condition is shown on the accompanying scale of color-coded lights.

This measurement presentation helps the user to:

    - Look for moisture behind wall and floor coverings, such as tile and vinyl. Assess, in relative terms, if the material is in a dry, borderline or damp condition.

    - Map the extent of the problem numerically.

    - Non-invasive pinless radio frequency finds moisture at depth where moisture is not always directly visible—up to 3/4 in. below the surface.

    - This mode of measurement is not adversely affected by the presence of surface moisture.

Protimeter Surveymaster Applications: Shower pans, behind ceramic tile, fine finishes, water stains, tile and vinyl floor coverings, joists, around toilets, drywall, below grade floors and walls, plaster, masonry, concrete and concrete block.

Measure Mode -- Pin-Type

This mode is used to measure the moisture level at the surface and at incremental depth, when used with the auxiliary probes. Measure mode readings are precise and specific to the immediate area of contact of the electrodes. The actual moisture content of wood is shown on the digital display with the corresponding moisture condition shown on the accompanying scale of color-coded lights. Wood Moisture Equivalent (WME) values are shown for other non-conductive, porous building materials.

    - Pin-type probes measure moisture in wood and other building materials (use provided wood species calibration chart for more precise readings)

    - Deep wall probes establish the presence of moisture in wall cavity insulation, sub and surface structures

Applications: Wood and wood floors, subfloors, drywall, concrete and concrete block, stucco, plaster, masonry and EIFS.

    Yes you can if you have direct access to the wood. The non invasive side has a depth of 3/4”
