The Professional Moisture meter for Wood is a small handheld digital pin type moisture meter made by world famous Tramex. Tramex only specializes in Construction Industry Moisture meters! Tramex is the World’s Largest Moisture Meter manufacturer for the construction industry. The Professional Moisture Meter is the top of the line Wood Moisture Meter from Tramex. It is an upgrade from the older analog Tramex Compact unit.
(If you are looking for pinless NDT wood moisture meter, see the ECO-10HD.)
The Tramex Professional Moisture Meter measures wood species between 7- 40% with temperature charts from 40° to 158°F and also incorporates a large chart of wood species for specific gravity correction. Note that wood becomes saturated at 27% moisture. The Tramex Professional Moisture Meter is powered by a 9V battery within a lightweight sturdy aluminum body. For hard to reach areas (home inspectors), the professional moisture meter has a HOLD button to lock the reading.

For business owners wanting their installers to have the necessary right tools to determine whether an installation should go move ahead. Should an installer find conditions that are high in moisture or humidity, an immediate stop can occur until the area of concern has been determined and corrected. This stop will save you from having to redo floors for warping, buckling or cupping or gaps and save you thousands in profit. Before work starts, measure ambient, existing concrete or substrate, and new wood.
For Contractors, you can measure below carpeting, below hardwood, behind drywall, etc. To measure below ceramic tile or for drywall, see the Tramex MRH.
