The Digital Mini is Protimeter’s latest offering from the new line up of robust functional moisture meters for buildings and continues the recent success of the new Surveymaster, Aquant and MMS2. Continue reading
An excellent explaination of the nature of dampness in buildings. Find out how to diagnose a dampness problem before it gets out of hand and how to deal with it. It covers the problems of condensation and rising damp, which are generally not fully understood, even by many professional surveyors. And, importantly it explains how to distinguish them.

Complex structures like buildings incorporate a number of porous materials like brick, plaster, mortar, timber and concrete . All these materials hold some water within them. This water is mobile and can be transported into the atmosphere and into adjoining materials. Continue reading
The new MMS2 represents the latest Protimeter technology in one intuitive, robust and fully functional design. If you’re surveying buildings, inspecting a home, drying a building after a flood, or testing concrete moisture for a flooring application, the MMS2 is the solution for you.
The Protimeter MMS2, is a 4-in-1 instrument, ergonomically designed for easy one-handed operation in measuring moisture in materials in buildings and related structures. It can measure surface moisture and moisture below a surface, as well as acting as a hygrometer to measure ambient air humidity. Continue reading
Dampness is hazardous before you can see it. It is important to note that materials do not become visibly damp, and do not feel damp to the touch until they are quite dangerously damp. Wood, for example, does not feel damp below 30% moisture content (i.e., around 97 or 98% relative humidity), although rot will start to develop at 20% moisture content. Thus dampness is hazardous long before it can be detected by the unaided senses. This is why it is so essential to use a moisture meter for surveying for damp, and making judgements about its severity. Continue reading
The GE Protimeter Surveymaster has been designed for measuring moisture in buildings utilising dual measuring modes. With its ergonomic design and digital display, this instrument has become the essential tool for building surveyors around the world. Continue reading
Depending upon the reading, one of the LEDs will detail the severity of the moisture reading, refer to Determining the Readings.
