Wood Moisture Meter FMW-T
to measure humidity without causing any damages in the material
The Wood Moisture Meter FMW-T covers all your needs while measuring moisture contents in all types of wood and building materials. The Wood Moisture Meter FMW-T works without causing any damage to the material and it is mainly employed to measure building walls. When you have to choose a Wood Moisture Meter it is very important to take into consideration if the surface can be affected or if it has to be in perfect condition after the measurement. Humid areas can produce mould in houses. These areas are easily detected. You will also measure humidity in wood, as for instance in parquet floors.
The Wood Moisture Meter FMW-T has a compact design and is very easy to use. These characteristics turn the Wood Moisture Meter into an irreplaceable tool for professional builders, technicians, etc.

Attention: All the characteristic curves of the wood types of this column and the adjoining one are stored inside the Wood Moisture Meter FMW-B. They can be displayed by introducing the corresponding gross densities. A chart with all the materials and wood types will be included in the delivery.
To take into account:
While measuring moisture content in wood, the result will be more accurate on smooth surfaces. The measuring value will grow on chips or knots. If measurements are taken on breaks, the humidity value will be lower in relation to the real humidity value (absolute humidity).
In both cases, you will have to measure near the area which is going to be measured.
Wood has an inhomogeneous composition. Therefore, gross density oscillations can be produced when measuring the same wood type. Therefore, you will have to take various humidity measurements - the measurement result will be the mean value calculated by the detector
In rough surface wood types, the result displayed in the Wood Moisture Meter can be lower.
The result will not be affected if the measurement is taken either in the fiber direction or against the fiber direction.
The measurement depth is 25 mm. If the wood is very thin (e.g. < 1 cm thickness) measurement will be carried out through the wood. The material on the wood will also be measured partially.
During the measurement the Wood Moisture Meter has to be on the surface which is going to be measured in order to avoid mistakes with results.
