Advantages to Concrete Curing Testing in Boston, MA

Based on a a definition offered by ACI Committee 308, curing is "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 using a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Boston, MA, you can test to make sure that your concrete:

  • Won't degrade and have fissures, also known as crazing
  • Has the appropriate durability
  • Has the necessary water tightness
  • Is resistant to abrasion
  • Has better volume stability
  • Is impervious to freezing and thawing

While the workers who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the Boston, MA lab the test is sent to will be responsible for a considerable percentage of the accuracy of the testing, their readings will be for naught if the reliability of the sample is endangered because the concrete was not stored correctly. You need to know the exact conditions 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 include:

  • In-field protected storage of concrete test specimens and reliable heating
  • Comes with comfort grip no-crush handles for easy carrying
  • Exterior controls and readings so you do not have to open the box
  • The plate is thermally protected from overheating
  • Digital temperature controller
  • Reading resolution: 0.5°F
  • Control setpoint: 73°F
  • Data retention: Yes
  • Xtreme technology uses an insulated lid and extra insulation on the siding
  • EZ-Clean top wipes clean and the lead-resistant channel drain makes it easy to empty any excess water without tilting the cooler
  • Low CO2 insulation for reduced carbon emissions from foam manufacturing
  • Made in the United States

Correct Procedures for Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Boston, MA

ASTM and ACI have stringent instructions for how to produce samples and what conditions to store them under. To ensure compliance, you must follow a specific procedure:

  • 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 take an accurate reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the sample.
  • The worker must carry out 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.

In addition to the slump and air tests, you must carry out both in-field and laboratory tests in Boston, MA to measure 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: A compressive strength lab test will apply force to each end of the cylinder until it breaks to see how much pressure the cylinder can hold up against.
