Advantages to Concrete Curing Testing in Columbus, OH

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." The success of your project will partially be dependent on how the concrete cures and your ability to accurately test it. By storing your samples in a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Columbus, OH, you can test to check that your concrete:

  • Won't have fissures, also referred to as crazing
  • Has the correct strength
  • Has the necessary water tightness
  • Is impervious to erosion
  • Has better volume stability
  • Is not susceptible to freezing and thawing

While the people who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the Columbus, OH lab the test is sent to will be accountable for a substantial percentage of the accuracy of the testing, their work 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 conditions the samples were stored at. That's why we design and manufacture every concrete curing box to have a control resolution of 1°F. Other features 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 controls
  • 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
  • Made in the United States

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

ASTM and ACI have stringent regulations for how to create samples and what conditions to store them under. To ensure compliance, 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 representative of the concrete poured on-site, made up of the same concrete as it was poured.
  • The technician must record the temperature of the ambient air and the sample.
  • The worker must conduct a slump test and an air test.
  • The samples must be kept in a concrete curing box where they will not be disturbed and never go below 60°F or above 80°F.

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

  • On-site 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 sample can hold up against.
