Tramex Professional Pin Type Moisture Meter - PTM2.0
Clearance 2 In Stock
Tramex Professional PTM 2.0 Hand-held, Digital Pin Type Moisture Meter measures moisture content and combines a list of features that save time, are more accurate and offer statistical analysis of the moisture conditions of Wood, Drywall and various building materials using the comparative WME (Wood Moisture Equivalent).
Using a good quality pin type moisture meter is the most practical way of ensuring the wood is at the correct moisture level for its intended use.
When wood and wood by-products are installed at the correct moisture content for the environment in which they will be used, the risk of swelling or shrinkage is minimized. If it is installed too wet and dries in service the result will be shrinkage and distortion. If it is installed too dry it could gain moisture, which could result in swelling.
Knowing the actual moisture level also enables efficient processing to be carried out, such as milling, machining, gluing, laminating, spraying and hand painting.
How The Pin Type Moisture Meter Works:
The Professional PTM 2.0 moisture meter works on the principle of DC resistance. When the electrode pins are pressed or driven into the wood, the electrical resistance between the electrodes is measured.
If the wood is dry, the resistance is high. If moisture is present in the wood the electrical resistance between the pins changes. The higher the moisture content the greater the reduction in resistance.
The level of resistance is accurately measured by the instrument, which translates it into a moisture value. This is a percentage of dry weight moisture content for wood; comparative drywall reading values; and a WME value for many other building materials.
Tramex Professional Pin Type Moisture Meter Features:
Built-in Calibration selection and specific calibration for over 500 wood species - the user no longer needs to refer to correction charts for precise measurement values.
