Product Description

The Tramex Moisture Encounter – ME5 is a Dual-depth, non-destructive, instant moisture meter for measuring and
evaluating moisture content wood, plaster, drywall, brick, roofing.

The Moisture Encounter detects and evaluates moisture conditions within various building materials by non-destructively
measuring the electrical impedance. A low frequency electronic signal is transmitted into the material via the electrodes in
the base of the instrument. The strength of this signal varies in proportion to the amount of moisture in the material under
test. The Moisture Encounter determines the strength of the current and converts this to a moisture content value, displaying
it on a large clear analog dial.

Used and trusted by generations of professionals worldwide for the purpose of:

  • Locating moisture-related problems within and behind a variety of building materials in the building envelope.
  • Mapping the extent of moisture damage caused to buildings.
  • Monitoring progressive drying conditions in the drying process of building materials and surfaces.
  • Dual-Depth penetration allows for comparative of surface and core moisture and elimination of substrate influence
    on the testing of coverings.

Features of the Tramex ME5 Moisture Encounter 5

  • 5 Ranges of sensitivity: Wood & Timber / Shallow Depth / Drywall & Roofing / Plaster & Tile / Masonry
  • Dual-Depth penetration allows for comparative of surface and core moisture and elimination of substrate influence
    on the testing of coverings.
  • Deep signal penetration, up to 30mm in wood and drywall, detects elevated moisture through most covering
    materials without having to damage or puncture the materials being tested.
  • Shallow Depth scale is designed to have a field penetration of up to 10mm.
  • Wide range of readings from 5% to 30% on Wood Scale and 0 to 100 on comparative scale for all other materials.
  • Detects moisture through paint, wallpaper, drywall, ceramic tiles, floor coverings, wood, ceiling tiles, roofing
    membranes, and asphalt composition shingles.
  • Bluetooth connection to accompanying IOS & Android App allowing for continual development and integration of
    apps and reporting.
  • Hold Function which enables the user to “freeze” the reading, useful when taking readings where the meter face
    may not be visible.
  • High Moisture Audio Warning Tone which can be enabled or disabled.
  • Large clear easy to read analog display giving meaningful readings.
  • Rugged ergonomically designed enclosure.
