Tramex meters come in a big range of variety. The meters are able to analyze the moisture in glass, wood, air, glass reinforced plastic and much more other objects. This can be very helpful to determine if a product is ready to use or in need of an inspection.
How do the Tramex devices work?
Most of the Tramex devices have two pins on the bottom. When those two pins of the device are inserted in the object, the device can measure the moisture percentage. The percentage of the moisture in the object will be displayed on the mini-display screen of the device. Depending on the percentage of the moisture in the measured object you can determine if the object is ready to use. For example, to process wood the water percentage needs to be below a certain amount, if the wood does not have the right water percentage it could be very difficult to process. If you are able to measure and determine the water percentage you can make a choice to let the wood dry longer until it is ready to use.
There are also Tramex meters that do not have any pins but are still able to make measurements. They are called the pinless moisture meters. You will have to place the meter on the surface of the object that you would like to measure. Then the meter will send out a few electric waves in the object, and depending on the returning speed of the waves. The device will calculate the moisture in the object, this way of measuring could be useful if you do not want to harm your material. The product you need to measure won’t get damaged because you will not have to insert the pins.
Why should I buy an Tramex device?
Most people wonder which brand they should choose when buying a device. Each brand has his own pros and cons. Here we will explain when you should choose a Tramex moisture meter.

This is a huge benefit of the Tramex brand.
