Pinless Moisture Meter for Wood, Drywall & other Building Materials

The Tramex Moisture Encounter 5, the updated Moisture Encounter Plus, is a non-destructive moisture meter for detecting moisture in most building materials. As a wood moisture meter, the Moisture Encounter 5, ME5, provides actual moisture content % readings. The ME5 also functions as a moisture meter for drywall, plaster, roofing, tile and masonry to help determine moisture content levels in walls, ceilings and floors.

The Dual Depth feature of the ME5 makes it possible to determine where the moisture is located within the material. The shallow-depth readings, up to ⅜” (10mm), and deep-depth readings, up to 1¼" (30mm), can be used to compare surface moisture and core moisture and eliminate the influence of the substrate when testing coverings.

The ME5 is a pinless moisture meter for wood and is calibrated to read actual moisture content percentage (MC%) in wood without the need for pins damaging the surface. The wood scale shows a 5-30% moisture content range. Wood adjustment tables are available for specific wood type density adjustments where necessary.

The ME5 detects elevated moisture levels within the most common building materials and is pre-calibrated to the various densities of materials such as drywall, plaster, roofing, tile and masonry.

This general moisture reader detects moisture through paint, wallpaper, drywall, ceramic tiles, floor coverings, wood, ceiling tiles, roofing membranes, and asphalt composition shingles and makes it the best moisture meter for testing in, through and behind a wide range of building materials.
