Proceq Unveils Concrete Moisture Meter

Swiss testing instrument maker Proceq has added the Hygropin Moisture Meter to its family of concrete testing instruments.

The company touts Hygropin as “the industry’s easiest, most accurate and least invasive method to quickly identify moisture content in concrete floor slab.”

Proceq Hygropin Moisture Meter

Dual Probes

Proceq says Hygropin is the only moisture meter to use both in-situ and ambient probes simultaneously, a combination that offers interior measurement of relative humidity and concrete temperature. The in-situ technique measures moisture below the surface.

The in-situ probe has a diameter of 5 mm, minimizing potential damage to the concrete surface, the manufacturer says. The in-situ reading is available within five minutes. The ambient probe is directly connected to the instrument, which displays results of the two independent sensor channels simultaneously.

The in-situ probe is accurate to within ± 0.3°C and within1.5% RH; the ambient probe is accurate to within ± 0.1°C and 0.8% RH.

The instrument also calculates psychrometric parameters and the difference between the values measured by the two probes.

Trend indicators show when stable temperature and humidity values are reached, and the unit allows up to 10,000 logs. The unit also has a USB interface and carries a two-year warranty.

Proceq SA of Switzerland, founded in 1954, manufactures portable test equipment for concrete properties, metal hardness, and paper hardness applications.
