Pin & Pinless Moisture Meters

Pin & Pinless Moisture Meters

At Triplett, we have several types of moisture meters for sale which may be pin-based or pinless. We offer some of the best wood moisture meters such as special pinless moisture meters for wood and building materials. Most of these models read moisture content from 5% to 50% for wood and 1.5% to 33% for other building materials. These pinless wood moisture meters have visual as well as audible indicators in terms of low, medium, and high icons and an audible beeper. The sound of the beeper goes up with the increased moisture content. They come with a battery powered around 9 volts. Moisture meters are devices that measure the amount of water content in material or mixture. This is an important part of several industrial as well as lab-based research processes.

Know More About Triplett Moisture Meter

What is a moisture meter?

A moisture meter senses, measures, and displays the moisture content of several materials such as metal compounds, wood, rocks, polymer compounds, paper, textiles, construction materials, woodworking, lumber, dry wall, concrete, wall, wall board, mortar, concrete, plaster, cardboard, hardwood, house, basement and other building products. Triplett offers digital moisture meters which come with a simple push button menu and an LCD display. It may be pin based for physical insertion or pinless.

What is the use of a moisture sensor?

As mentioned a moisture reader is used to detect moisture in wood, wall board, and other building materials to gage damage from flooding, high humidity, or other causes. It may also be used prior to using a material in a product to check its moisture content and gage damage from humidity, flooding, and so on. Hence, moisture meters are also used in furniture manufacturing and rebuilding, wood flooring, wooden and stone art and craft works, and so on.

How Does a Handheld Moisture Meter Work?

Moisture meters with pin-like probes are inserted directly into the material under test to check the moisture content. The moisture reading is then displayed on the meter screen. The unit of measure for moisture content varies from instrument to instrument some use ‘%’ and others use a relative scale from 0 to 100 where 100 represents maximum and 0 represents minimum moisture. Many meters also use a Dry, Moist, and Wet indicator for convenience. At Triplett, we offer moisture meters with audible indicators that produce beep sounds. The moisture may be indicated through low, medium, and high icons for most models. Most of our models have a lock button which freezes the value displayed on the screen. This is because, there may be a visibility issue in some areas when the moisture content is measured. Our pinless moisture meters offer non-invasive and non-destructive testing, and are used for relative measurements up to a depth of around one inch.

Do moisture meter measure humidity?

Yes, the moisture meters we provide do have multiple functionalities. Most models, aside from moisture measurement probes, also have temperature and humidity probes. They can measure moisture content, relative humidity, air pressure, dew point, air temperature, and so on. Triplett has the best variety of wood moisture meters which are used to measure moisture and relative humidity in wood.

Do moisture meters work on tile floors?

Tiles are usually made of materials that do not absorb and retain moisture. If the tile is split from the floor or wall surface, you can still measure its moisture content. However, it is not measured frequently as it is not required. Moisture meters are used during flooring and tile installation, but are more frequently used for wood flooring.

What is the range for moisture reading for concrete?

The moisture content of concrete is tested frequently. Also, concrete once watered remains wet from a few days to weeks as it absorbs moisture and retains it. Additionally, concrete slabs are thick and measured in feet and not inches. So, even if its upper portion may look dry, deep inside, the slab may hold water. Hence, it is wise to use a meter which measures the entire moisture content and not just on the surface so that deep holes are dug into these concrete slabs. For moisture measurement on concrete floors, ASTM F-2170 testing method is used and is known to be reliable. A thermo-hygrometer is used to measure this moisture content. At Triplett, we offer a Moisture/Psychrometer/IR Thermometer for this function. It is designed to measure moisture content on floors, walls, and building environment. These are reference scale meters which first test the dry portion of the slab and then the deeper part of the concrete. Usually, the ranges for building materials including concrete are as follows:

  • Low: 1.5 to 16.9%
  • Medium: 17.0 to 19.9%
  • High: 20.0 to 33.0%
