|Moisture Meters Detect Moisture Content, Avoid Problems||8/28/2017|
CARSON CITY, NV - Moisture is a powerful and destructive force that can cause costly damage. Using an AccuMASTER XT Moisture Meter can help determine the level of moisture content (MC) in a variety of surfaces to help avoid costly problems.
The AccuMASTER XT Moisture Meter is designed to easily determine moisture content in wood, drywall, dirt, concrete, and more before building, painting, wallpapering or sealing. It is a simple yet accurate tool for homeowners and professionals to use in quickly checking moisture levels.
Handymen and home inspectors use the meter to find and trace leaks in walls, roofs and floors. They simply press the pins into the inspected surface and receive an immediate reading on the LCD display of the moisture content in the material. By taking measurements at different locations, the leak is located when the reading remains at the highest value. The meter also has a button to hold the display while the meter is retrieved from hard-to-reach places.
"Knowledge is a powerful thing. Knowing when wood is dry enough to work with or finding out where a leak is will help save people frustration and money," said Steve Kennedy, President of Calculated Industries. "Moisture Content impacts all of us and having a way to detect it will make our work and hobbies more successful."
The AccuMASTER Moisture Meter is designed to work with all types of wood to help woodworkers, finish carpenters, DIYs and homeowners know they are buying and using wood with the correct MC. All it takes to use the meter is to press the test pins into the material you want to measure. The moisture content is displayed as a percentage. Knowing the MC helps you know if lumber is ready for building, firewood is ready to burn or furniture is ready for varnish.
The meter can also measure moisture in concrete and other porous materials by just touching the surface as there is no need to penetrate porous materials. When measuring the moisture content of soil, like in gardening, higher and more accurate readings appear the deeper the pins are inserted. Readings may not be even across different locations of the same material due to changes in the density of the material.
