Protimeter has announced the new MMS2 flooring kit for moisture testing in concrete floors to the ASTM F2170-11 standard.
Protimeter has been developing instruments designed to measure Relative Humidity in concrete floors for more than 25 years and is the originator of the low cost humidity sleeve system of measurement.
The new MMS2 Flooring Kit incorporates the world’s most innovative multi-function moisture meter, including functions such as ambient and in-sleeve humidity and temperature measurement, surface temperature and proximity to dew point, non-invasive moisture measurement for rapid concrete floor evaluation and pin type moisture measurement for wood floor covering and sub-floors. The kit is also available without the MMS2 to accommodate customer 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 inches (100 to 150mm) concrete floors.
Protimeter has also releases the new reusable Mini Hygrostick humidity sensor that is placed in the sleeve and is completely protected during the measurement process by the flush fitting cap and sleeve.
Chris Ranwell, global product manager said, “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. We are confident we have the best and most reliable system available to carry out the ASTM F2170 in-situ humidity test and after over 25 years of measuring humidity in concrete, we are even more confident that humidity testing is the best and most practical way of moisture measurement available today”
