- Become A Distributor
Rewind to 1946 in New York City, and you will find in the quickly growing metropolis an urgent need for a way to identify water damage issues in the roofs and walls of the buildings. It was here that Delmhorst Instrument found its start with the sale of its first moisture meter device. Today, Delmhorst meters are being used by technicians and sold by distributors in the US and numerous countries around the world. All products are designed and manufactured in this industry leader’s New Jersey facility. As essential tools for many industries -- IICRC-certified water damage technicians, contractors, and even insurance claims adjusters, among others -- Delmhorst holds a wealth of expertise spanning industry-specific concerns, and each new development in their technology becomes a way for those industries to streamline their own service offerings.
There are many industries that, with the use of moisture meters, will enhance their reliability and attract customer satisfaction; however, not all meters are built the same. Day-to-day use on busy worksites means regular wear and tear, and is easy on equipment is not prioritized over the more pressing concerns on-site. Users should be able to rely on their devices without fear of constant breakage and malfunctions; industries require professional-grade tools. In addition, users need meters to be repeatable and accurate on wood, drywall, and a variety of other hygroscopic building materials; their readings should offer as accurate an idea as possible of the moisture content of their material. They should cover a wide range of applications, as well. The capability to utilize special application external electrodes – besides the integral short pins – enables technicians to obtain readings in hard-to-reach, and even unseen, areas. No matter the specific purpose that the meter is fulfilling for a user, durability, accuracy, and adaptability are key.
In addition, professional tools require a thorough understanding of their functionality. Not all brands of meters are calibrated the same; most have, at minimum, scales for quantitative %MC (moisture content) readings in wood, as well as a scale for relative (wetter or drier) readings on non-wood materials. It is essential that the user possesses the necessary knowledge to understand and interpret these different readings and scales according to the jobs they handle. Meter users must know how their chosen meter works, know what it can and cannot do, and know-how to make use of the information that the meter provides. Without the right support and guidance, end-users risk being left in the dark.
