Wagner Meters' new online Service Temperature Estimator webApp easily and quickly estimates the relative humidity (RH) at service conditions from concrete at non-service conditions, according to the company.

“The big advantage of Wagner Meters’ Service Temperature Estimator webApp is that it gives project managers a quick heads-up very early on about what they can expect at service conditions,” said Jason Spangler, Rapid RH product sales manager for Wagner. “This is huge in terms of avoiding costly delays and putting in place any measures that may be needed to dry the floor.”

According to Spangler, flooring experts and general contractors can access vital information to help determine realistic project deadlines and ensure compliance with the ASTM F2170 standard for concrete slab RH measurements. More importantly, properly conducted RH measurements will decrease the risk of moisture-related flooring problems, costly delays, callbacks and even lawsuits.

Wagner emphasizes that the Service Temperature Estimator webApp is for estimation purposes only. Before installation of a finished floor on concrete slabs, the ASTM F2170 standard mandates a service condition RH test. The acceptable level of RH is dependent on the flooring product and determined by the manufacturer.
