Advantages to Concrete Curing Testing in Baltimore, MD

According to a guidelines set out by ACI Committee 308, curing refers to "the process by which hydraulic-cement concrete matures and develops hardened properties over time." How the concrete cures and the accuracy of the tests will go a long way in the success of your project. By keeping your samples in a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Baltimore, MD, you can test to demonstrate that your concrete:

  • Won't fall victim to cracks, technically known as crazing
  • Has the needed strength
  • Has the needed water tightness
  • Is not susceptible to abrasion
  • Has better volume stability
  • Is not susceptible to freezing and thawing

While the people who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the Baltimore, MD lab the test is sent to will be accountable for a substantial percentage of the accuracy of the testing, their reports will mean nothing if the reliability of the sample is put at risk because the concrete was kept at a temperature and humidity that did not adhere to regulations. You need to know the precisely the conditions the specimens were stored at. For that reason, every Darwin Chambers portable concrete curing box has a control resolution of 1°F. Other specifications are:

  • In-field 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
  • The plate is thermally protected from overheating
  • Digital controls
  • Measuring resolution: 0.5°F
  • Control setpoint: 73°F
  • Ability to retain data
  • 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
  • Eco-friendly manufacturing through reduced carbon emissions
  • Manufactured in the United States

How to Take Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Baltimore, MD

ASTM and ACI have strict regulations for how to produce samples and what conditions to store them under. To ensure you are complying with regulations, you must take the following steps:

  • The procedure must be carried out by an ACI-Certified Grade 1 Concrete Field Technician.
  • The concrete cylinder must be a "representative sample," made up of two different samples from the middle of the concrete load.
  • The technician must record the temperature of the ambient air and the sample.
  • The technician must perform a slump test and an air test.
  • The specimens must be kept in a concrete curing box where they are kept at a fixed temperature range between 60°F and 80°F.

After the slump and air tests, you must carry out both on-site and laboratory tests in Baltimore, MD to take a reading of the concrete's compressive strength:

  • In-Field Test: A small device, known as a Schmidt hammer, fires a spring-loaded mass with a defined energy against the surface and reads how elastic or strong the concrete is.
  • Laboratory Test: In a lab, the concrete will be placed in a machine that places increasing amounts of pressure on each end of the sample until it cracks or breaks.
