  • Instructions
  • Hard Carrying Case
A pocket size, non-destructive moisture meter designed to locate moisture in boat hulls and fittings, the SKIPPER non-destructive moisture meter provides a complete, safe method for detecting excess moisture in GRP and wooden boats. It has three ranges of operation making it suitable for use on wood and fiberglass, in fresh or salt water.

How it works:
  • The Skipper moisture meter detects moisture in wood or GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) by measuring the resistance between two low frequency AC signals transmitted from the soft rubber electrodes on the base of the instrument.
  • Because salt water is more conductive than fresh water, the Skipper is fitted with different ranges of sensitivity to allow testing of wood or GRP in either fresh or salt water environments. Simply select the correct scale:

    • Scale 1: Moisture in wood in fresh water or GRP in saltwater
    • Scale 2: Moisture in GRP in freshwater
    • Scale 3: Moisture in wood in saltwater
Professional PTM 2.0:
The Professional PTM 2.0 is a hand-held, digital, pin-type resistance moisture meter designed to take precise measurements of moisture content in wood, relative drywall readings and comparative WME (Wood Moisture Equivalent) readings in wood by-products and other building products. The Professional PTM 2.0 has built-in standard calibrations, specific calibration for over 500 wood species and adjustable temperature correction.

The Professional offers a most practical and accurate way of ensuring that wood is at correct moisture level for its intended use, proving to be a vital tool for good quality control.

The Professional PTM 2.0 moisture meter works on the principle of DC resistance. When the electrode pins are pressed or driven into the wood, the electrical resistance between the electrodes is measured. If the wood is dry, the resistance is high. If moisture is present in the wood the electrical resistance between the pins changes. The higher the moisture content the greater the reduction in resistance. The level of resistance is accurately measured by the instrument, which translates it into a moisture value. This is a percentage of dry weight moisture content for wood; comparative drywall reading values; and a WME (Wood Moisture Equivalent reference) value for many other building materials.

When wood and wood by-products are installed at the correct moisture content for the environment in which they will be used, the risk of swelling or shrinkage is minimized. If it is installed too wet and dries in service the result will be shrinkage and distortion. If it is installed too dry it could gain moisture, which could result in swelling. Using a good quality moisture meter is the most practical way of ensuring the wood is at the correct moisture level for its intended use. Knowing the actual moisture level also enables efficient processing to be carried out, such as milling, machining, gluing, laminating, spraying and hand painting. The Professional PTM 2.0 fulfills all these requirements.
  • Deeper signal penetration up to an 1" into the materials being tested.
  • Wider range of readings for wood of 5% to 30% and 0 to 100 comparative for all other materials.
  • Larger clear easy to read display giving meaningful readings.
  • Hold Function enables user to "freeze" the reading. Useful for taking readings when the meter face is not visible.Switch-able "On" or "Off" audio warning tone.
  • Automatic Power Cutoff switches "Off" when not in use.
  • Automatic Default to last user setting when switched back on.
