The CME5 and CMEX5 Moisture Encounter Moisture Meters are concrete moisture meters used for measuring moisture content in concrete floors and slabs, and humidity in wood and building materials. These meters are instant, precise, non-destructive, with either analog and digital displays. They measure quantitative moisture content % in concrete using Gravimetric testing as a baseline.
The Concrete Moisture Encounter detects and evaluates the moisture conditions within the slab or screed by non-destructively measuring the electrical impedance. A low frequency electronic signal is transmitted into the material under test via the electrodes in the base of the instrument. The strength of this signal varies in proportion to the amount of moisture present in the material. The Concrete Moisture Encounter determines the strength of the current and converts this to a moisture content value for concrete slabs and a comparative value for other cementitious floor screeds.
