Advantages to Concrete Curing Testing in Cleveland, OH

Based on a report from 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 Cleveland, OH, you can test to demonstrate that your concrete:

  • Won't develop crevices, technically called crazing
  • Has the required durability
  • Has the needed water tightness
  • Is impervious to abrasion
  • Is impervious to shrinkage, which causes cracks
  • Is resistant to freezing and thawing

In order to properly verify the above and have accurate tests, 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 specifications include:

  • On job site protected storage of concrete test specimens and dependable heating
  • Comes with comfort grip no-crush handles for easy transport
  • No need to open to see temperature reading or set point of thermostat
  • No 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
  • Eco-friendly manufacturing because of reduced carbon emissions
  • Produced in the United States

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

ASTM and ACI have strict regulations for how concrete samples are taken and stored in a concrete curing box. To ensure you are obeying guidelines, 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 a "representative sample," 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 concrete.
  • You must conduct a slump test and an air test.
  • The specimens must be stored 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 perform in-field tests and send samples to a lab in Cleveland, OH to take a reading of the concrete's compressive strength:

  • On-site 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 concrete until it cracks or breaks.
