|The NEW Moisture Measurement System MMS 2 – BLD8800 is your complete dampness diagnosis instrument for the building environment.
The all new MMS2 represents the latest Protimeter technology in one intuitive, robust and fully functional design. If you’re surveying buildings, inspecting a home, drying a building after a flood, or testing concrete moisture for a flooring application, the MMS2 is the solution for you.
Four-In-One Moisture Measurement System
Measures moisture in wood and wood floors, drywall, concrete and concrete block, stucco, plaster, masonry and other building materials.
Measure (pin mode) diagnoses the extent of moisture intrusion for damage assessment and monitor drying out of building structures.
Search (non-invasive mode) behind ceramic tile, fine finishes, water stains, tile and vinyl floor coverings, wood, drywall, plaster, masonry, concrete and concrete block.
Hygrometry measures or monitors buildings for adequate ventilation affecting indoor air quality and moisture problems.
Surface Temperature (IR) checks surface temperature, utilizing laser pointer, calculates proximity to dewpoint.
Data Storage Functions
When concise and accurate environmental readings need to be reported, the MMS Plus gets the job done. The ability to record readings instantly at the push of a button, and to continuously log when left on site, makes this instrument ideal for many applications including:
Humidity Probe Options
The MMS Plus may be used with three styles of interchangeable humidity probe, the Hygrostick, the Quikstick and the Quikstick ST. The Hygrostick (grey POL4750) can be used for high moisture applications such as concrete measurement. Quikstick (black POL8750) is a general purpose, fast-responding full range sensor.
Concrete Floor Moisture Measurement
MMS2 can be used for measuring equilibrium relative humidity directly in concrete slabs. Protimeter pioneered this more accurate method, which includes drilling holes in the concrete, inserting a humidity sleeve and measuring the equilibrium humidity in the concrete. If excessive moisture is found, simply replace the sleeve cap for future retesting. This method also permits normal construction without disturbing the test surface.
A small hole is drilled in the concrete. Next, a humidity sleeve is inserted and capped flush with the floor. The relative humidity of the air in the test hole is now at the same moisture level as the concrete around it. Flooring product manufacturers normally recommend RH readings between 75% and 85% depending on the permeability of the product being installed.
Readings from multiple Hygrosticks can be taken and recorded with ease. Humidity readings can be taken with the use of humidity sleeves or humidity box. Hygrosticks, not Humisticks, should be used for this test.
