Moisture Encounter Plus

MEP Moisture Encounter Plus by Tramex requires no pins or probes to measure moisture in building materials including wood, drywall, timber, roofing, plaster, brick and others. Using electrical impedence measurement, Moisture Encounter Plus penetrates up to 1.25"*,  to detect moisture through most covering materials without having to puncture or damage the structure. MEP' external rubber electrodes contact the surface directly to increase accuracy and signal depth.

Excess moisture in the structural members of a building leads to damages including mould, rot, reduced insulation values, and failure of support members in floors, walls, and roofs. Tramex MEP Moisture meter identifies areas of excess moisture in wood studs, drywall and and plaster, subfloor, laminates and other areas at risk of damage from flood or water leakage, or chronically elevated humidity levels.

Wood-destroying pests such as termites and wood ants, thrive in moist, humid conditions, making the identification of areas of excess moisture important to determining the presence and location of wood-destroying insects. The Moisture Encounter Plus identifies areas of excess moisture in the building structure so that Pest Management services know where to treat against wood-damaging pests.


*Penetration depth depends on the material being tested & meter setting.
