Protimeter Large Speedy 2000 Series Moisture Tester F-L2000G
Protimeter Large Speedy Moisture Tester meter vessel, 0-50%mc measurement range, 8 gram sample.
Large Speedy Moisture Tester for roads, aggregates, sand and concrete. The Speedy 2000 series of moisture testers combines time proven dependability of the pressure test procedure with the convenience of an electric balance.
When compared with other soil and concrete moisture meter systems, the Speedy tester is often the most practical solution, especially when working in the field.
• Accurate and simple to use
• Robust and reliable
• Portable and requires no external power source
• Versatile - many materials can be measured over a wide moisture content range
Principal users include geotechnical engineers on civil engineering projects, building surveyors and restorers. Other substantial user groups include mining, steel production, foundries and ceramics.
Taking Moisture Measurements
Soil and concrete moisture meter measurements by mixing a weighed sample of the material with a calcium carbide reagent in a sealed pressure vessel. The reagent reacts chemically with water in the sample, producing acetylene gas that in turn increases the pressure within the vessel. As the pressure increase in the vessel is proportional to the amount of water in the sample, the moisture content can be read directly from the calibrated pressure gauge.

Roads and Highways
Knowledge of the moisture content of soil is crucial throughout geotechnical engineering practice. Engineers use the Speedy for field control of compacted earth embankments and other structures and to measure the water content of soil to ensure it is within specified ranges. The Speedy moisture tester is ideal for this, being accurate, robust and simple to use.
Aggregates, Sand and Concrete
The Moisture content of freshly mixed concrete affects the workability, blending, segregation, strength and drying rate of the finished product. The Speedy tester is an ideal on-site quality control tool. Moisture levels of aggregates and sand can be checked prior to use to ensure that the correct amount of water is added when mixing with cement. The moisture content of ready-mix cement concrete can also be checked, to ensure it is in specification.
