Overcoming the moisture barrier
One of the most destructive elements to any building or structure is excessive underlying moisture content. The GE MMS2 Complete Protimeter Moisture Measurement System from Kennards Hire Test & Measure is a powerful and versatile instrument for measuring and diagnosing dampness in buildings and materials with no need for multiple accessories.
The Kennards Hire Test & Measure Moisture Meter is a light weight, easy-to-use instrument that enables professionals in the construction, plumbing, consulting and engineering industries to measure moisture in non-conductive solid materials and complete psychometric calculations. It is also an invaluable tool for coating and painting contractors, concreters as well as those working to determine the water damage of structures for insurance assessment.
“In addition to our NDT (non-destructive testing) category, we found moisture is one of the biggest issues in building works,” said Gareth Vines, General Manager Kennards Hire Test & Measure. “It can potentially generate peeling membranes and coatings, reducing slab, ceiling and wall integrity.”
The MMS2, available for hire from Kennards Hire Test & Measure, provides accurate moisture analysis in wood and wood floors, drywall, concrete and concrete block, stucco, plaster, masonry and other building materials. This easy-to-use instrument with fast responding hygrometer speeds up building surveys, adding significantly to project efficiency.
Switching between the five operation modes of the MMS2, allows the user to determine the actual percentage of moisture content (MC) in building elements and obtain detailed analysis of the moisture condition of a building or structure.
Room temperature, room relative humidity, surface temperature (contact and non-contact method), qualitative measurements and precise and localised moisture content measurements are accurately identified. The measured value is displayed and the progress bar indicates whether the material is in a dry, at risk or wet condition.
Featuring an intuitive user interface with colour screen, continuous data logging is possible with the push of a button. Continuous logging is enabled either by setting parameters through the keypad or a PC for reporting purposes.
