Chemical / Calcium Carbide Moisture Meters & Reagent

This test is done to determine the water content in soil, brick, plaster and many other materials by calcium carbide method. It is a method for rapid determination of water content from the gas pressure developed by the reaction of calcium carbide with the free water of the material tested.


  • Calcium Carbide Meter

    The CM-meter CLASSIC is a device for determining the dampness of hardened building materials and various other materials using the calcium carbide method. The use of this measuring technique is recommended by various specialist associations for a range of measurement tasks and has thus been well known for years in practice alongside electrical measurement.
