TQC Sheen Concrete Moisture Meter

Press the TQC Concrete Moisture Meter against a concrete surface to quickly determine its moisture content. 


Dispatched within 2 days


Our concrete moisture meter follows a non-destructive process that gives you accurate results by measuring the electrical impedance of the surface.  

You can rely upon the TQC concrete moisture meter as an accurate measuring device, or you can use it as a detector to find moisture traces or leakage. 

Electric concrete moisture meter

Our concrete moisture meter measures the electrical impedance by generating a low frequency electric field between eight electrodes at the instrument’s base. Depending on the moisture content the measurements are made to a depth of several centimeters. 

Large scale testing 

Need to paint large concrete floors or constructions? Or are you seeking a concrete moisture meter to check an area in which you plan to lay a wooden floor? Our inspection devices are ideal for such jobs. 

Eight scale concrete moisture meter

It’s the eight scale capability that enables our concrete moisture meter to work as both a reader and a detector. These scales can be summarized as follows:

1) Concrete 0 – 6% H2O

Concrete scale may be used only for concrete surfaces. It shows the relation between weight of pure water contained in the tested material with its dry weight. The scale range varies between 0 and 6% as 6% is about the maximum physically possible content of water in the concrete. The obtained results should not be confused with moisture emission or any other moisture measurement methods.

2) Cement screed 0 – 6% H2O

This scale is used to measure the moisture content of cement screed. The content of water is expressed as a percentage of weight.

3) Cement Screed 0 – 4% Carbide Method

This scale is used to measure the moisture content of cement screed. The displayed value is an approximate value that can be also determined using the Carbide Method (CM).

4) Anhydrite Screed 0 – 3.5% H2O

This scale is meant for moisture measurements in anhydrite screed. The content of water is expressed as a percentage of weight.

5) Anhydrite Screed 0 – 1.9% Carbide Method

This scale is meant for moisture measurements in anhydrite screed. The displayed value is an approximate value that can be also determined using the Carbide Method (CM).

6) Caisson 0.3 – 15.3 m scale

Caisson scale works in a similar way as the Relative scale below and can be used alongside meters with the same scale.

7) Relative Scale 0 – 100%

Relative scale may be used in moisture level comparison of various materials. Obtained results should not be interpreted as percentage content of water in tested surfaces. There is no linear correlation between the outcomes and relative moisture. The scale should be used only as comparison technique and may be used on the surfaces where direct contact with pure concrete is impossible because of some layer/covering.

8) Gypsum 0 – 10%

This scale is meant for moisture measurements in gypsum.  

A convenient concrete moisture meter

The meter has a number of convenient features such as a ‘max-hold’ for hard to reach places and ‘auto-switch off’ functionality. 

How to use our concrete moisture meter

By means of measuring the electrical impedance the moisture content of concrete can easily be determined by just pressing the instrument against the concrete surface. 

More concrete moisture meter choices   

We make a wide range of moisture testers for concrete and related accessories. Why not check out the TQC Sheen Concrete Moisture Detection Meter – Concrete Encounter. And if you need to know the degree of water penetration into concrete – or other building materials – then the Karsten Tube Penetration Test offers a comprehensive solution. 

Concrete insights

We like to share the lessons learnt over many decades of making  test and inspection devices for concrete. For example, here’s an Industrial Physics Q&A guide that explores how to successfully apply a Karsten tube penetration test.

The Problem

When your customers must be able to rely on your inks and coatings there’s no margin for error in your test and inspection processes. So, settling for second-rate equipment and advice is a risky business! 

The Solution

With several dedicated inks and coatings testing brands in the Industrial Physics family, our industry-leading product portfolio and expertise is even relied upon by leading paint testing laboratories.   

The Result

Artur Palasz, R&D Director at Spektrochem, said:

Many of our customers appreciate Industrial Physics equipment, because it is a world-class apparatus that they know and use in their laboratories. Excellent technical contact, perfect customer service and fast order processing time are undoubtedly additional advantages that determine the choice of Industrial Physics as our permanent supplier of laboratory equipment today and in the future.”
