Ligno-Scanner SDM Moisture Meter

Ligno-Scanner SDM Moisture Meter

The Ligno-Scanner SDM meter has two independent sets of calibrations one for measuring 1/4" deep and one for measuring 3/4" deep. Dual-depth settings are available for different wood species, drywall, reference scales for concrete and other building materials. The bamboo calibration settings (flat and vertical grain and strand, carbonized) are for a measuring depth of 1/4". The moisture meter of choice for multi-material applications: flooring, restoration, inspection and construction.

Dual-depth --a new approach to scanning-- works well for:

  • Different board thicknesses, over 3/4" and less than 3/4" thick.
  • Measuring layered engineered panels.
  • Comparing surface / core moisture to see if boards are dried evenly.
  • Floor testing at 1/4" depth assures only the floor planks are measured and not the concrete or subfloor underneath.
  • Checking surface moisture after water damage or after applying waterborne finishes.
