The Tramex MEP is a non-invasive complete building inspection tool which has applications for numerous industries. It has many unique features that makes non-destructive moisture measurement and evaluation fast, precise and versatile.

Product Design

The MEP Moisture Encounter Plus detects and evaluates moisture conditions within various building materials by non-destructively measuring the electrical impedance. A low frequency electronic signal is transmitted into the material via the electrodes in the base of the instrument. The strength of this signal varies in proportion to the amount of moisture in the material under test. The MEP determines the strength of the current and converts this to a moisture content value, displaying it on a large clear analogue dial.

Product Uses

Used and trusted by generations of professionals worldwide for the purpose of:

  • Locating moisture related problems within and behind a variety of building materials in the building envelope.
  • Mapping the extent of moisture damage caused to buildings.
  • Monitoring progressive drying conditions in the drying

Research demonstrates that termites can relocate free water to dry resources. Furthermore, areas of more than or equal to 20 percent moisture are strong indicators of termite activity. Inspectors should not focus strictly on moisture-prone areas, as termites can relocate water to dry areas.

The Tramex Moisture Encounter Plus is a very useful tool for deciding optimal placement of above ground bait stations. A moisture meter also can be a useful monitoring tool during follow-up inspections after a termite treatment. Assessing moisture level changes (or lack thereof) pre- and post-treatment can be useful in determining whether or not further investigation is warranted.

Tramex CME4 Concrete Moisture Encounter

Tramex-CME4-tn

 

A handheld electronic moisture meter used for testing moisture conditions in concrete and other floor slabs and screeds. Versatile, precise and easy to use, the Tramex CME4 allows the user to make multiple tests over a large area in the shortest possible time.

Product Design

The CME4 Concrete Encounter detects and evaluates the moisture conditions within the slab or screed by non-destructively measuring the electrical impedance. A low frequency electronic signal is transmitted into the material under test via the electrodes in the base of the instrument. The strength of this signal varies in proportion to the amount of moisture present in the material. The CME4 determines the strength of the current and converts this to a moisture content value for concrete slabs and a comparative value for other cementitious floor screeds, displayed on a large clear analogue dial.

HOW IT WORKS

OPERATING PROCEDURE

To carry out tests simply brush any dust from a smooth area of concrete and also from the electrodes, switch on the Concrete Encounter CME4 and place it firmly onto the surface, fully compressing the spring-loaded, signal-enhancing contacts on the base. Read the moisture content from the clear analogue dial.

The CME4 is calibrated to give percentage moisture content readings on clean, bare dust free concrete floor slabs, with a depth of penetration of approx. 20 mm (¾”). Readings taken on concrete slabs through paint, coatings, adhesives or other materials on the surface should be regarded as qualitative or comparative and not quantitative.

Belt Hog Alignment Procedure

VibrAlign100-BH2_4_tn

The Belt Hog uses two LASER transmitter for projecting of LASER lines on the opposite LASER unit.

By adjusting the pulleys so that the laser line coincides with the reference line on the opposite LASER unit, the pulleys are aligned.

Mounting of the Belt Hog units:

  • Note: The magnets, which holds the unit to the pulley, are very strong.
    1. Do not pinch your fingers!
      VibrAlign100-BH2_5
  • 1. Position both units with the spring action probes resting in the same groove on both pulleys and the units are facing each other as shown below.         VibrAlign100-BH2_6
  • When the units are mounted, turn on the LASERS.
    • Each LASER generates a line on the opposite unit.
    • When correctly aligned the lines coincide with the reference marks on the labels on both units.
    • If the belt transmission is mis-aligned, start by correcting the angular error.VibrAlign100-BH2_7
  • It is important that the pulleys are mounted correctly on the shafts and that the shafts are straight before starting the alignment process.
    • Wobbling or warped pulleys affects the alignment quality severely.

BHS-series

The FLIR BHS-series sees clearly in total darkness. It gives law enforcement officers, security patrols and any other person that needs to see at night without being seen himself, the information needed to make critical decisions, enhance mission effectiveness, maximize operational capabilities and improve safety.

BHS-Series are shock-resistant thermal imaging cameras. They produce a crisp image in the darkest of nights. With the BHS-Series security professionals and law enforcement officers can see suspects in total darkness, through smoke, and light foliage.

The BHS-Series complement the successful HS-Series. The HS-Series are monoculars. Many users requested bi-oculars for their missions. That is why FLIR Systems developed the BHS-Series.

Bi-oculars, like the FLIR BHS-Series are less tiring to use for the eyes than a monocular. By using a bi-ocular the ability to detect faint objects is enhanced. This means that you have more chance to detect small objects against the background. It is also easier to hold bi-oculars steady when looking at an object. An advantage if you are looking at small things which are far away.

Extremely affordable

FLIR Systems is active in many different markets and produces more thermal imaging cameras than any other manufacturer. Thanks to economies of scale FLIR Systems is able to market this full featured handheld thermal imaging cameras at an extremely affordable price compared to other systems on the market. Price is no longer an issue to bring the benefits of thermal imaging cameras to every law enforcement officer.

Extended Range Options: BHS-X and BHS-XR

The BHS-X is equipped with an uncooled vanadium oxide detector. This provides excellent long range viewing with sharp 320 × 240 native resolution in the viewfinder and a 2× digital e-zoom step to 160 × 120 resolution.

Powered by FLIR’s 640 × 480 core, the BHS-XR delivers greater range performance with crisp, clear 320 × 240 native resolution in the viewfinder AND while in the 2x digital e-zoom mode, plus an additional 4× digital e-zoom step to 160 × 120 resolution. Full 640 × 480 resolution imagery from the BHS-XR Series is also accessible via the “aux video” jack in the hot shoe.

Choice of lenses

The BHS-Series can be ordered with different lenses. Longer lenses have a narrower field of view and allow you to see targets farther away. Lenses are interchangeable. The specific lens(es) required for the application need to be specified at time of order.

Digital zoom

The BHS-X comes with a 2x digital zoom. The BHS-XR has both a 2x and a 4x digital zoom. This allows you to have a closer look at the situation when necessary.

Portable and rugged

All FLIR BHS-Series are compact and extremely light systems. They are IP67 rated and operate between -20°C and +60°C. Ergonomic and easy-to-use, the BHS-Series are fully controlled with just 5 buttons on top of the unit.

In operation, the BHS-Series are totally silent units. Eyebrow style light shield eye-pieces allows the operator to remain fully covert, in total darkness.

Image storage

Both versions of the BHS-Series allow to store thermal images in JPEG format on a removable SDcard. Images can be used as evidence. Just press a button and start recording thermal video on a removable SD card.

Long battery life

The battery compartment hides 4 rechargeable AA NiMH batteries. Good for 4 hours continuous operation. The BHS-Series can also run on standard commercial off the shelf non-rechargeable Alkaline or Lithium Ion AA-batteries.

Hot shoe

The BHS-Series come standard with a “hot shoe” which can easily be attached to the camera. It allows to charge the camera and connect the camera to an external video monitor while the camera is mounted on a tripod.

Thermal imaging versus image intensification (I2)

Image intensification, also referred to as I2 technology, amplifies small amounts of visible light thousands of times so that objects can be seen at night. Image intensification does require a certain level of ambient light, but even starlight can produce an image on a cloudless night.

Because the system requires at least a minimum level of ambient light, conditions such as heavy overcast can limit its effectiveness. Similarly, too much light may overwhelm the system and reduce its effectiveness.

Thermal imaging cameras like the FLIR H-Series offer substantial benefits over image intensification. They work by detecting the heat energy being radiated and need no light at all to produce a clear image in the darkest environments. Thermal imaging cameras are not affected by the amount of light so that you will not be blinded when looking at a light source.

About thermal imaging

Thermal imaging is the use of cameras constructed with specialty sensors that “see” thermal energy emitted from an object. Thermal, or infrared energy, is light that is not visible to the human eye because its wavelength is too long to be detected. It’s the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that we perceive as heat. Infrared allows us to see what our eyes cannot.

Thermal imaging cameras produce images of invisible infrared or “heat” radiation. Based on temperature differences between objects, thermal imaging produces a clear image. In contrast with other technologies, such as light amplification, thermal imaging needs no light whatsoever to produce an image on which the smallest of details can be seen. Thermal imaging provides full visibility irrespective of the prevailing light level and weather conditions.

It can see in total darkness, in the darkest of nights, through fog, in the far distance, through smoke and is able to detect anyone hiding in the shadows. It is used for security and surveillance, maritime, automotive, firefighting and many other applications.
