Press Release Summary:
Designed to check concrete surfaces for moisture prior to installing floor coverings or coatings, Hygropin uses 0.3 in. diameter sensor, which minimizes installation efforts and damage to surface. Unit has 2 independent sensor channels for measuring ambient and concrete characteristics simultaneously. Housed in stainless steel, Hygropin measures humidity from 0-100% RH, temperature from -40 to 185Â°F, and both dew and frost point. Meter can record data over period of time for traceable information.
Original Press Release:
Due to the small, fast sensor of the Hygropin, diagnosing moisture according to ASTM F2170 is quicker and easier than ever before
Identifying the Presence of Moisture
Excess moisture in concrete can be fatal to a floor covering installation. To prevent mildew and major damage, the flooring industry requires smart testing solutions to check surfaces for moisture prior to installing floor coverings or coatings. The in-situ technique has proven to be the most reliable method since it measures directly where the moisture hides below the surface of the concrete.
The relative humidity test outlined by ASTM F2170 requires placing a measuring sleeve at a specific, well defined depth in the concrete. This can be done either by drilling a hole or by pre-installing cast holes in fresh concrete. The Hygropin offers the best solution for both procedures.
The Hygropin provides the smallest available sensor on the market, minimizing damage to the surface and reducing the installation efforts immensely. Due to the small air volume of the test sleeve, the humidity equilibrium process is extremely fast.
