meter for rapid determination of moisture content in wet cement and
The James Cementometer™ represents a
break-through in modern moisture measurement technology. By utilizing
the latest microwave and microprocessor science, the
Cementometer™ can 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 easy
to read display.
The Cementometer™ Microwave moisture
meter uses a two
to measure the complex dielectric constant of the
contact with the prongs. As the dielectric constant of
is four to eight times greater than most aggregates and
changes in water content directly

average of five to ten readings is normally taken in order

Cementometer Type L™ handles low water/cement

approximately 0.2 - 0.4 water cements.
