GE Protimeter Mini is a compact, general purpose pin type moisture meter used for assessing moisture conditions in buildings. The Protimeter Mini can be used for making rapid moisture assessments in a wide range of building materials including wood, masonry, drywall, plaster and concrete. The instrument measuring pins are small and sharp which means measurements can be taken at the surface with virtually no mark left behind. The numerical values represent the actual percent moisture content of wood (percent MC) and the wood moisture equivalent (WME) of other materials. The Protimeter Mini can be used to determine if the fabric of a building is in a dry, borderline or damp condition. When taking readings in awkward positions, the Protimeter Mini can be used with the moisture probe and lead, supplied as standard with the instrument. The optional Protimeter Hammer Electrode can also be used with the Protimeter Mini for determining moisture gradients in wood. Typical users include: home inspectors, flooring contractors, termite pest control officers, wood product manufacturers and traders, cleaning and floor restoration professionals, woodworkers. 24 months warranty on mechanical or manufacturing defects. Does not include wearing part or accessories.
