The Cementometer utilizes the latest microwave and microprocessor science to determine the moisture content of freshly mixed cement, concrete and mortar. Simply insert the prongs of the probe into the material to be measured, and instantaneously, the water cement ratio is shown on the display.
Two units are available to encompass the full range of water cement ratio's found in wet concrete:
- Cementometer Type R handles normal water cement ratio's with its two prong probe. The range of this instrument is approximately 0.35 to 0.65 water/cement.
- Cementometer Type L handles low water/cement ratio's with its five prong probe. The range of this instrument is approximately 0.2 - 0.4 water cements.
