Protimeter BLD9800 Moisture Measurement System MMS3

Product Description

Complete Moisture Measurement System with Wireless Capability.

Now with wireless capability! The Protimeter MMS3 represents the latest in moisture measurement technology. Its ergonomic 4-in-1 design allows for fast and accurate full building diagnostics both on and below the surface, from new building construction to refurbishing projects in existing buildings.

Also, with built-in hygrometric capabilities and an infrared (IR) laser thermometer, the MMS3 also assesses indoor air quality conditions.

All Protimeter instruments have a two-year warranty.

Four-In-One Moisture Measurement System

Measure (pin mode)Diagnoses the extent of moisture intrusion for damage assessment and monitor drying out of building structures


Use built-in pin or plug in the heavy duty moisture probe for measuring in hard-to-reach areas
Use deep wall pin-type probes to measure moisture in walls, wall cavity insulation, sub and surface structures
Use accessories such as hammer probes to measure at depth
Search (non-invasive mode)Behind ceramic tile, fine finishes, water stains, tile and vinyl floor coverings, wood drywall, plaster, masonry, concrete and concrete block


Non-invasive pinless radio frequency finds moisture up to 20 mm below surface
Search mode not adversely affected by surface moisture
HygrometryMeasures or monitors buildings for adequate ventilation affecting indoor air quality and moisture problems


Measures relative humidity and temperature, dew point and surface temperature, surface proximity to dew point (condensation) and grains per pound, as well as multiple psychrometric calculations
Allows measurement of equipment such as dehumidifiers
Measures equilibrium relative humidity in concrete floors using the in situ probe method
Use to detect conditions for mold and fungus growth, that can lead to unhealthy living conditions
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:

Building survey
Fire and flood restoration
Concrete floor moisture measurement
Indoor air quality
Environmental health

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.

Quikstick ST POL78751, standard with all MMS2 kits and with the same performance as the standard Quikstick. A Quikstick ST can remain connected to the MMS2 while using the pins

Hygrostick part number POL4750,for high moisture applications.
