Tramex CME5 Concrete Moisture Encounter Moisture Meter




The Tramex Concrete Moisture Encounter 5 is a non-destructive analog concrete moisture meter for measuring quantitative moisture content in concrete floors and slabs. The Concrete Moisture Encounter 5, CME5, determines this instant and precise quantitative measurement of moisture content using Gravimetric testing as a baseline. This concrete moisture meter tests the concrete to a depth of approximately 20mm into the slab.

  • Non-destructive in operation with no need to probe, drill or mechanically damage the surface.
  • Clear easy-to-read analog dial.
  • Instant and precise readings to a depth of approximately  3⁄4″ into the slab.
  • Bluetooth connection to accompanying IOS & Android App allowing for continual development and integration of apps and reporting.
  • Hold function “freezes” meter reading when inspecting areas where the meter face is not visible, and for easy recording of data.
  • Reproducible and reliable results.
  • Spring-loaded contact pins compensate for uneven concrete and boost signal penetration.
  • Rugged ergonomically designed enclosure.
