The worlds most
advanced Moisture and Relative humidity Meter for the flooring industry,
the CRH measures Moisture Content, Relative Humidity, Temperature
and Dew Point in concrete and gypsum flooring.
The CRH Moisture/RH meter
enables you to carry out 4 individual tests:
non-destructively and instantly the moisture content in concrete and
the relative humidity, temperature and dew point within the floor
slab or screed using the
(below surface) In-situ method
the relative humidity, temperature and dew point above the surface
of the floor slab or screed using RH hood test methods
the relative humidity, temperature and dew point of the environment
that the floor is
The CRH allows you to carry out the most appropriate tests
How does it work?
In Moisture measuring mode it uses the principle of electrical
impedance measurement to give accurate non-destructive moisture readings
in concrete and gypsum floor screeds.
From Electrodes with special spring mounted probes on the base of the
instrument, a low frequency signal is transmitted into the material being
tested to measure the electrical impedance.
In Hygrometer mode it uses a solid state capacitive sensor RH probe
to give accurate and fast relative humidity and temperature readings.
While being easy and
uncomplicated to operate the CRH has a powerful micro controller, which
processes the information received and accurately calculates the moisture
content, relative humidity, temperature and dew point and displays it
on the clear digital display. It has a high capacity non-volatile memory
chip which stores and retains its data. This information can be recalled
at any time by scrolling and reading directly from the instruments
own display or downloaded to a PC for storage and inclusion on spread
sheet or report.

NEED for the CRH
Excessive moisture in concrete floor slab and screeds can lead to a host
of problems in all types of floor coverings such as: adhesive degradation,
delaminating of the floor covering from the slab and within itself, condensation,
blistering, movement and deterioration of the covering. In the case of
wood flooring, excess moisture can lead to swelling, cupping and movement
of the wood which can lead to floor failure and even structural damage.
Excess moisture can also lead to mold, and mildew as well as the emission
of harmful vapours. Most of these problems can be related to the floor
covering being installed on a sub floor that is not sufficiently dry.
It is therefore important to insure that the floor slab or screed is
sufficiently dry enough to accept a covering.
