It is important to know how concrete is drying to enable better project planning and timing. If flooring material is placed on uncured concrete, there is a high risk of mold growth and increased volatile organic compounds (VOC) emissions as the adhesives decompose due to moisture. Also costly repairs and even permanent damage to the flooring material can occur from adhesive delamination. Proper monitoring of the conditions requires reliable measurement sensors showing accurate data online.
Vaisala Jade Smart Cloud is a cloud-based data service for monitoring drying conditions, concrete, and ambient moisture on construction sites. The service consists of data loggers with humidity and temperature probes, one or more access points, and a software license that gives access to the cloud where data can be viewed remotely. Jade Smart Cloud is also designed for the borehole method where the humidity probe is left in the borehole until an equilibrium state has been formed and humidity values can be read. Using Jade Smart Cloud allows you to check the data on your mobile phone, tablet or PC without having to travel to the measurement location.
A more traditional Vaisala HUMICAP® Structural Humidity Measurement Kit SHM40 is also available. It is intended for humidity measurements in concrete and other structures. The kit is designed for the borehole method but data from the SHM40 needs to be checked at the measurement location. The SHM40 kit includes everything you need to do ASTM F2170 or RBK (Swedish Rådet för Byggkompetens) compliant measurements.
Vaisala SHM40 offers an easy and a reliable solution for humidity measurements in concrete and other structures using the borehole method.
