That being said, there are many people that have used F testing methodology for testing roof decks with this understanding. RH BluePeg can be used as a measuring device for ambient relative humidity and temperature or placed in a measuring sleeve, which can be inserted into a predrilled hole in the testing area.

Without studying pages and pages of operation manuals: December 27, at 3: The cap fits perfectly and is as flat as can be. The instruments have proven to perform well in rough mill environments with day-to-day usage. Reusable sensors should be calibrated by the manufacturer at least once per year, or more often if exposed to conditions that may impact their accuracy.

Instrument turns itself off automatically. As any professional knows, ASTM standards are established to help guide industry testing and also to help ensure standardized f2170-1 practices to protect both the installer and the consumer. To check the calibration we offer calibration check salts. Does the finish roof product have specifications for testing the concrete deck?

Ligno-Tec RH Concrete Moisture Meter

And moisture can still be an issue at grade so concrete foundations must be designed to include proper moisture drainage. If not, call their technical team and ask the questions. Sub-grade water vapor can permeate even well-mixed and applied slabs.


Surface-based test results will fluctuate, even more, under these changes in environmental conditions.

Concrete slab moisture is a major cause of concrete flooring failure. Concrete absorbs water vapor from the air under high ambient humidity; concrete releases more water vapor when the humidity of the surrounding air is low.

Check job site conditions. In-situ concrete moisture testing places sensors, or probes, inside the slab itself. June 8, at 1: During the first year, Lignomat will test the calibration of the RH BluePeg probes astmm times without a charge. Some calibration restrictions astmm apply, so read the standard carefully to be sure your test equipment qualifies for the most recent standard. The first thing I would look at is the assembly that you are installing.

Now is a good time to buy! While any professional must understand the exact requirements of standard F the most recent versionthe following are 10 guidelines f21770-11 help f217-11 that you have met the criteria laid out in ASTM F This website uses cookies. At any time you can change from pin mode to scan mode by depressing up or down button. The Ligno-Tec RH was designed for reliability and accuracy as well as sturdiness and ease of operation.


June 9, axtm 1: Preparation Confirm your test method equipment meets specifications. Without it, even a well-dried and functioning foundation can end up with concrete slab moisture problems. This will NOT be valid for ASTM compliance, but can certainly provide a target timeline for schedule decisions or for choosing alternate adhesive or flooring options that might have higher moisture tolerances.

It has been believed that the change in the desiccant weight could be translated into a moisture ratio for the concrete beneath. The RH BluePeg probe uses a asm sensor with a short acclimation time.

10 Guidelines for ASTM F Compliance

The only thing we recommend is that you ensure that there is a good seal between the sensor body and the concrete wall. Ligno-VersaTecpin-pinless-RH, meter only. All sensors must be calibrated no less than 30 days prior to use.

If i have an area of approx sq ft and have done the required testing for the area, and 5 fail and 3 pass does the whole area fail?

F requires three test holes for the first ft 2 and, at least, one additional hole for each additional ft 2. September 6, at Your email address will not be published.
