Roof Moisture Survey

Roof Moisture Survey

Billions of dollars are lost each year by un warranted flat roof replacement on commercial buildings. The Tramex Dec Scanner is a mobile device that is used for detecting moisture underneath the roofing membranes using roof moisture survey for large roof areas.This non-destructive testing method is often combined with electric capacitance/ impedance testing and/or infrared moisture verification testing to accurately identify water entry pathways and areas of entrapped water. EMA can readily perform roof moisture surveys on commercial roof and resport the results to owners, so they know which parts need replacement. The results of the moisture survey can be verified by Infrared roof moisture scanning also.

The Dec Scanner is designed for testing roof moisture survey in built up roofing and non-conductive single ply membrane. It provides instantaneous, clear indications of roof conditions and is able to detect as little as 2% excess moisture in these large-scale roofing systems.This testing method can be performed in conjunction with, or in certain cases in lieu of infrared thermography in flat roof inspections.

The Tramex Dec Scanner is a mobile non-destructive impedance scanner designed for the instant surveying of moisture conditions in roofing and waterproofing systems per ASTM D7954. Ideal for water leak detection in roofing materials.

Features of Roof Moisture Survey

  • Complies to ASTM D7954
  • Non-destructive impedance moisture meter.
  • Three ranges of sensitivity enabling the inspection of a variety of roof membranes and insulation thicknesses.
  • Ergonomic easy-reach and easy to operate control panel.
  • Leak tracing, water leak detection, problem sourcing, and an instantaneous and clear indication of roof condition.
  • Fast readings over large roof areas in a short time frame.
  • Work in normal daylight hours.
  • Faster and more user friendly than nuclear meters.
  • Easy and safe to use with no regulatory restrictions or operating license required.
  • Dependable solid state circuitry and rugged molded body for long-term reliability.
