Delmhorst Dual Function Moisture Meter >

The Delmhorst Accuscan moisture meter is a capacitance type meter that is multi purpose. It can be used to identify moisture problems rapidly and help you ascertain whether further action is required. There are 2 scales with the device. First the wood scale which gives a moisture reading of 6% to 40%. Secondly there is the reference scale which can be used with plaster, sheetrock, insulation and concrete to name a few materials.

To take a reading with the Delmhorst Accuscan you need to first decide which scale you need to use. You can opt the correct scale by pressing the reference scale button or the wood button. Once the scale has been selected the moisture meter will turn on and flash a few times. Whilst flashing the meter is also taking an auto calibration function to give you stable and unaffected readings. When the flashing display has stopped the moisture meter is ready to use. Place the meter of the surface of the material to be tested. When holding the sides of the meter apply forward pressure so that you minimize any air between the meter and the material to be tested.

When testing wood with the Delmhorst Accuscan a few tips are to ensure that the sensor plate has full contact with the wood. When testing the results can be affected by the amount of pressure that is applied to the sensor plate. So you need to try and keep uniform pressure at all times. The sensor plate can detect to a depth of 3/4 inch. If the wood you are testing is thinner than this then you need to be aware of the material which is under the wood to avoid false readings. Finally remember that the moisture meter works most effectively with smooth wood. With rough wood there could be air pockets between the surface and the sensor plate. Any readings taken on knots or splits should be ignored.

With concrete testing it is recommended that you use a pin type meter in conjunction with the Accuscan. The Delmhorst Accuscan will let you test a large area quickly, while the pin type will let you test below the surface.

The Delmhorst Accuscan is very good at identifying moisture content problems within walls, ceilings and floors. Before testing damaged areas you should always test dry areas to get a target moisture content level to work from. With walls always target the base, around doors and any electrical fittings where water finds it easy to enter. Keep using the meter during the drying process as well so that you can monitor it correctly.
