An all-inclusive moisture and humidity measuring kit has been put together to assess moisture problems the restoration and cleaning professional may encounter.
Moisture and humidity are the two factors that interlock and if not right, can cause mold and mildew to grow. The measuring kit from Lignomat includes the Ligno-VersaTec moisture meter, which can be operated as a pin or pinless meter as well as a thermohygrometer. The meter has individual settings in pin and pinless mode for soft and hardwoods, OSB, sub floors, bamboo, concrete, drywall, and other engineered and composite products as well as reference scales to measure building materials. All other flooring materials such as carpets and laminates can be examined with reference scales, which are also preprogrammed.
The pin mode is accessed by connecting one of the handheld probes. For core measurements in pin mode, the slide-hammer electrode E12 is included with up to 2-inch long pins. For hard materials, the Electrode E14 is included. The user can hammer on top of the Electrode E14 to insert the pins into the hardest woods, strand bamboo, etc.
The pinless (non-invasive) mode has a unique dual-depth feature. The measuring depth can be selected to ¾” and ¼” deep. This allows for measuring thinner materials than the standard ¾” thick boards. It also allows measuring engineered products more accurately with the ability to read the top layer of the solid wood separate from the core material. A precision RH Probe is included. The probe can be connected to the Ligno-VersaTec for measuring humidity and ambient temperature.
