Deep Wall Probes

Protimeter 'Deep Wall Probes' are 130mm long insulated but for their tips. They will plug into any Protimeter moisture meter and measure moisture conditions of a timber or masonry wall regardless of surface dampness or contamination by salts. Two holes are drilled at least 4mm in diameter, about 40 mm apart, gradually increasing the depth for each measurement and thereby building up a moisture profile through the structure being investigated. Remember the heat of drilling may temporarily reduce the moisture at the bottom of the hole, allow for this.  (Two longer sizes available 230mm and 340mm, ask for prices)

Temperature Sensor

The Protimeter Temperature Sensor facilitates automatic correction of moisture content in wood with the Timbermaster when readings are taken at high (kilning) or low (winter) temperatures, thus avoiding manual correction. Fitted with a 2.5mm plug and 90cm of coiled lead it can be placed either into a drilled hole, or between planks. It is used simultaneously with the Heavy Duty Hand Probe or Hammer Probe and gives immediate automatic correction to readings.
