What can the Tramex Moisture Encounter 5 (ME5) be used for?

The Tramex Moisture Encounter 5 (ME5) moisture meter is used and trusted by generations of professionals for:

  • 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 covering
How does the Tramex Moisture Encounter 5 (ME5) work?

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 analogue dial.
