  • Description

    Tramex Compact Moisture Meter

    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 minimised. 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.

    Using a good quality moisture meter is the most practical way of ensuring the wood is at the correct moisture level for its intended use.Knowing the actual moisture level also enables efficient processing to be carried out, such as milling, machining, gluing, laminating, spraying and hand painting.

    The Tramex Compact Moisture Meter is a hand-held instrument designed to instantly and accurately measure moisture content in wood, wood by-products and building materials such as roofing, insulation, plaster and brick.

    Using built-in electronic probes,the Tramex Compact Test meter measures moisture content which is then indicated on a clearly calibrated analog dial.

    The Tramex Compact provides a range of readings, up to 40% moisture in wood, and 0–100 on a colour-coded relative scale.

    This pocket-size, and versatile moisture tester instrument offers an accurate, fast and convenient way of moisture measurement at a low cost.
