Wagner Electronics and CTLGROUP have partnered to develop the RAPID RH™, a fast, accurate moisture test for concrete floors. This revolutionary Relative Humidity Probe has been proven to significantly decrease the time it takes to measure moisture in concrete floors. The RAPID RH™ revolutionizes concrete floor testing by combining a moisture sensor, power supply, and display all in one small device that is inserted into a concrete floor slab. This small, rugged, low-cost instrument allows flooring professionals and inspectors to quickly get accurate floor moisture and temperature readings. The RAPID RH™ eliminates guesswork, messy testing methods, is disposable and can be left in the testing area so you don’t have to worry about removal.
The RAPID RH™ is easy to install and fits level with the testing area preventing damage to the probe. With the push of a button the RAPID RH™ liquid crystal display gives you an accurate relative humidity and temperature reading. The RAPID RH™ meets the requirements of ASTM F2170, Standard Test Method for Determining Relative Humidity in Concrete Floor Slabs Using in situ Probes.
Wagner Electronics has been recognized for over 40 years as the world leader in providing advanced moisture measurement and management solutions to the forest products industry.
