Video: How to Measure Concrete Moisture using the PosiTest CMM

PosiTest CMM In Hand

Video Transcript How to measure concrete moisture using the PosiTest CMM Non-Destructive Concrete Moisture Meter, from DeFelsko. When mixing concrete, water must be added to create a workable mix, and to allow the cement to hydrate and cure. After hardening, much of this water remains as moisture within the porous concrete slab. Over the following months, … Read more

Video: PH Tool shows how creates EDM Notches


This is an interesting demonstration of how PH Tool creates EDM notches (otherwise known as electrical discharge machined notches). The EDM process is a non-conventional machining process in which material is removed very precisely under carefully controlled conditions. The cutting is done with an electrode that is configured to yield the artificial defect desired. The … Read more
