    Testo 616 Moisture Meter

    The Testo 616 Moisture Meter measures the moisture content in woods and building materials as a percentage of weight related to the dry mass of the material under inspection. 10 characteristic curves allow the meter to be used across a wider range of materials. Measurements are taken via a non-destructive measuring claw which has minimal impact on the material under test and can penetrate down to a depth of 5cm. The measuring range for wood goes up to 50% whilst the range for building materials goes up to 20% and readings are given to a resolution of 0.1%. These moisture measurement capabilities have various applications in water damage restoration, carpentry, construction and more.

    Readings are shown on the Testo 616’s backlit digital display and the instrument is capable of showing minimum and maximum readings with a display hold function that allows the user to take a reading with the screen facing away from them. The moisture meter has a 60-hour battery life and is ideal for showing where a destructive moisture measurement might have to be taken.
