Benefits of Concrete Curing Testing in Cincinnati, OH

Based on 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." You need to be confident that your concrete is curing properly for the best outcome in your project. By using a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Cincinnati, OH, you can test to establish that your concrete:

  • Won't fall victim to crevices, also called crazing
  • Has the needed durability
  • Has the appropriate water tightness
  • Is resistant to abrasion
  • Is impervious to shrinkage, which causes cracks
  • Is resistant to freezing and thawing

While the workers who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the Cincinnati, OH lab the test is sent to will be accountable for a large part of the accuracy of the testing, their readings will be for naught if the reliability of the sample is put at risk because of a poor concrete curing box. You need to know the precisely the temperature and humidity the specimens were stored at. For that reason, we design and manufacture every concrete curing box to have a control resolution of 1°F. Other aspects include:

  • On job site 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
  • No overheating
  • Digital temperature controller
  • Reading 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
  • Eco-friendly manufacturing because of reduced carbon emissions
  • Produced in the United States

How to Take Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Cincinnati, OH

ASTM and ACI have strict standards for how to create samples and what humidity and temperature to store them at. To make sure you are adhering to guidelines, 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 record the temperature of the ambient air and the concrete.
  • You must run a slump test and an air test.
  • The samples must be stored 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 conduct in-field tests and send samples to a lab in Cincinnati, OH 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: 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 withstand.
