Flooring kit designed for moisture testing

Protimeter, which has been developing instruments designed to measure relative humidity in concrete floors for more than 25 years, has released the new MMS2 flooring kit for moisture testing in concrete floors to the ASTM F2170-11 standard. The new MMS2 flooring kit incorporates an innovative multifunction moisture meter, including functions such as ambient and in-sleeve humidity and temperature measurement, surface temperature and proximity to dew point, noninvasive moisture measurement for rapid concrete floor evaluation and pin type moisture measurement for wood floor covering and subfloors.

The kit is also available without the MMS2 to accommodate customers who own and use this instrument. The new patent-pending humidity sleeve is fully adjustable without the need for cutting the sleeve and fits flush to the surface of the concrete to minimize any potential damage and interruption to the test. The sleeve can be adjusted to make measurements in 4- to 6-inchthick (100 to 150 mm) concrete floors. Protimeter has also released the new reusable Mini Hygrostick humidity sensor that’s placed in the sleeve and is completely protected during the measurement process by the flush-fitting cap and sleeve. Chris Ranwell, global product manager, says,

“This new Protimeter system with reusable probe is simple to use and significantly less costly than the single-use humidity systems available. Protimeter’s humidity sensor is the only sensor available for the ASTM F2170 test where the sensor was specifically designed for harsh and high-humidity concrete floor environments.”
