Given the challenging conditions of building inspection, installation, and drying jobs, it pays to have an easy-to-use moisture meter that you can depend on. The easy-to-use 2-in-1 TechCheck PLUS was designed with simplicity in mind and helps to make even the most demanding job simple. The newly updated TechCheck PLUS has all the great features you've come to expect, along with some new ones.
TechCheck PLUS: Includes meter, carrying case and additional contact pins. Order as TECHCHECK+W/CS. (Price: $520.00)
TechCheck PLUS Insulation package: Includes meter, 21-E electrode, extra contact pins for the meter, and carrying case. Order as TECHCHECK+/PKG. (Price: $570.00)
Another alternative to the 496, the A-111 is an uninsulated contact pin measures 1 7/16” and has 1/2" penetration. The A-111 is compatible with both the 26-ES and the 22-E, and its tapered point makes it easier to penetrate into hard surfaces. Can be used on wood up to 2" thick.
A-111/24 (Price: $37.20)
Moisture content standards are great for verifying that your Delmhorst moisture meter is in calibration. The MCS-1 can be used on any meter with a wood scale. With two electrical resistance values (12% and 22%) to test your meter against, you can be sure that your readings will stand up to the strictest standards of accuracy. The MCS-1 is also available with a letter of certification traceable to NIST.
Delmhorst offers a wide assortment of electrodes known throughout the industry for their durability. All Delmhorst electrodes fit any Delmhorst moisture meter. Below are electrodes that are typically used for this model:
Fitted with the same 5/16" penetration pins that are mounted on our pin type meters. This electrode is great for a variety of different applications:
2-E is also available as the 2- ET with a tapped handle for hard to reach areas. Can also be fitted with A-103 uninsulated pins with 1 3/32” length and 11/16” penetration.
The 496 contact pins that come with the 26-ES penetrate 1 1/8” and have insulated shanks so that only the tips are exposed. The pins make contact only at their uncoated tips and provide much more accurate readings of moisture content at various levels of penetration. This feature is useful for a variety of different applications:
Also available as the 26-ED, which includes gauge to measure pin penetration depth.
The 608 pins that come with the 21-E are insulated, except at the tips, and can reach a maximum penetration of 3-1/4".
Great for use on roofs, insulation, or EIFS.
21-E is also available as the 21-E/001 with 6" penetration, or as the 21-ET with a tapped handle for hard to reach areas.
Knowing the exact location and extent of moisture in a building is essential knowledge for restoration efforts. The full applications of moisture meters in restoration projects are described in this eGuide.
