Benefits of Concrete Curing Testing in Charleston, SC

Based on a report from 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 is vital to the success of your project. By using a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Charleston, SC, you can test to demonstrate that your concrete:

  • Won't degrade and have crevices, also called crazing
  • Has the necessary durability
  • Has the required water tightness
  • Is impervious to erosion
  • Has better volume stability
  • Is not susceptible to freezing and thawing

In order to properly verify the above and have accurate tests, you You need to know the exact conditions under which the specimens 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
  • No need to open to read or set temperature
  • The plate is thermally protected from overheating
  • Digital temperature controller
  • Measuring resolution: 0.5°F
  • Control setpoint: 73°F
  • Data storage
  • Xtreme technology uses an insulated lid and extra insulation on the interior
  • 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
  • Manufactured in the USA

Correct Procedures for Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Charleston, SC

ASTM and ACI have strict 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 a "representative sample," made up of at least two samples.
  • The technician must take a precise reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the concrete.
  • The worker must run 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.

Once you have a concrete cylinder, you must keep it well-preserved in a concrete curing box until you can carry out in-field tests and send samples to a lab in Charleston, SC to test the concrete's compressive strength:

  • On-site Test: A small device, known as a Schmidt hammer, measures the rebound of a spring-loaded mass that is shot against the surface of the concrete.
  • Laboratory Test: In a lab, the concrete will be placed in a machine that places increasing amounts of pressure on each end of the concrete until it cracks or breaks.
