Moisture Testing With Tiles Laid?

The project requirement was to test the screed moisture content in a screed where the tiles had been laid.

Using the Tramex CMEX5 allowed us to find the highest moisture reading on the floor, without removing any tiles.

Once located the tiles were removed in the area, thus allowing access to the floor screed.

The floor had underfloor heating pipes encased within the screed. We had to identify the location of the pipes using thermal imaging so as to avoid any risk of damage when taking the samples.

Once the sample was taken it was double-bagged so as to keep the material in a controlled environment.

The sample was then tested using the calcium carbide method (CM method).
