Tramex Concrete Determinator Tech Kit - CDTK
A compact kit for instant and precise testing of both Surface and In-Body concrete Moisture Content in ﬂoors and slabs using a uniﬁed gravimetric-based testing method. The Tramex CMEX5 digital concrete moisture meter allows for non-destructive quantitative testing of concrete and comparative testing per ASTM F2659. The reusable Concrete Moisture Determinator Probe used with the CMEX5 allows for in-depth moisture content probe testing within the concrete, down to an extendable depth of up to 4" (100mm). The Concrete Determinator Tech Kit comes in a protective heavy-duty carrying case with die-cut foam lining. The Tramex Meters App allows you to GeoTag test results, create, save and share reports and charts.
- Instant and accurate
- Designed to work in the same drill-hole made for the F2170 test.
- Eliminate confusion between in-situ Relative Humidity tests and surface Moisture Content tests.
- Determine if moisture is coming from below or above the concrete slab surface.
- Determine the type and extent of mitigation if needed.
- Reusable, Extendable, and requires no plastic hole liners.
- Can be used in conjunction with Tramex Concrete Moisture Encounters CME5, CMEX5, (CME4 and CMEX2)
The Concrete Moisture Probe when used with Tramex CME instruments operates on the principle that the electrical impedance of a material varies with its moisture content. The CME instrument is pressed onto the CMP cradle which is pressed onto the material surface with the pins fully compressed and the probe inserted into the pre-drilled 3/4" (19mm) hole to measure the moisture content. The electrical impedance is measured by creating a low frequency alternating electric field between the electrodes and the probe, to a depth of up to 4” (10cm). This field penetrates the material under test. The very small alternating current flowing through the field is inversely proportional to the impedance of the material. The instrument detects this current, determines its amplitude and thus derives the moisture value.
The Determinator cradle should be flat on the slab surface and the Tramex Concrete Moisture Meter placed and firmly pressed onto the cradle with the pins fully compressed. The probe reads from the bottom, within the body of the slab, up to the surface.
