Tramex LTD

Tramex has been manufacturing moisture meters for over thirty years. Tramex designed and developed the world’s first non-destructive moisture detector working on the principle of impedance measurement using direct contact electrodes.

The Tramex product line offers unique solutions for moisture problems to professionals with their handheld moisture meters and hygrometers. We have accumulated a vast wealth of experience dealing with many different industries which include but are not limited to: Flooring, Building Inspection, Roofing, Pest Control, Indoor Air Quality, Building Maintenance, Restorative Drying, EIFS, Cleaning and more.

Excessive moisture in cementitious substrates can cause coatings to fail, and surfaces to be disfigured from stains or efflorescence. Moisture problems can occur in poured-in-place concrete pre-cast, tilt-up, and CMU (concrete masonry units). Methods for determining the moisture content are presented, including relative humidity probes, anhydrous calcium chloride, plastic sheet tests, and a variety of electronic instruments.
