Advantages to Concrete Curing Testing in Albuquerque, NM

Based on a guidelines set out by ACI Committee 308, curing is "the process by which hydraulic-cement concrete matures and develops hardened properties over time." The success of your project will partially be dependent on how the concrete cures and your ability to accurately test it. By using a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Albuquerque, NM, you can test to make sure that your concrete:

  • Won't have cracks, technically known as crazing
  • Has the required strength
  • Has the appropriate water tightness
  • Is impervious to wearing down
  • Is resistant to shrinkage, which causes cracks
  • Is not susceptible to freezing and thawing

In order to properly verify the above and have accurate readings, you You need to know the exact temperature and humidity under which the samples were kept. For that reason, we design and manufacture every concrete curing box to have a control resolution of 1°F. Other aspects are:

  • On job site protected storage of concrete test specimens and dependable heating
  • Comes with comfort grip no-crush handles for easy carrying
  • No need to open to see temperature reading or set point of thermostat
  • No overheating
  • Digital controls

  • Control setpoint: 73°F
  • Data retention: Yes
  • Xtreme technology uses an insulated lid and extra insulation in the walls
  • EZ-Clean top wipes clean and the lead-resistant channel drain makes it easy to empty any excess water without tilting the cooler

Correct Procedures for Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Albuquerque, NM

ASTM and ACI have stringent instructions for how concrete samples are taken and stored in a concrete curing box. To ensure compliance, you must take the following steps:

  • The concrete must be made, cured, and tested by an ACI-Certified Grade 1 Concrete Field Technician.
  • The concrete cylinder must be representative of the concrete poured on-site, made up of the same concrete as it was poured.
  • The technician must record the temperature of the ambient air and the concrete.
  • You must conduct a slump test and an air test.
  • The samples must be kept in a concrete curing box where they will not be disturbed and are kept within 60°F and 80°F at all times.

Once you have a concrete sample, you must maintain it in a concrete curing box until you can conduct in-field tests and send samples to a lab in Albuquerque, NM to test the concrete's compressive strength:

  • In-Field Test: A Schmidt hammer fires a spring-loaded mass at the concrete in order to measure the value of the rebound.
  • Laboratory Test: In a lab, the concrete will be placed in a device that places increasing amounts of pressure on each end of the cylinder until it cracks or breaks.
