Benefits of Concrete Curing Testing in Dallas, TX

According to a guidelines set out 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 using a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Dallas, TX, you can test to demonstrate that your concrete:

  • Won't degrade and have cracks, technically referred to as crazing
  • Has the needed strength
  • Has the appropriate water tightness
  • Is not susceptible to erosion
  • Is not susceptible to shrinkage, which causes cracks
  • Is impervious 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 are:

  • 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 controls
  • Reading resolution: 0.5°F
  • Control setpoint: 73°F
  • Data storage
  • Xtreme technology uses an insulated lid and extra insulation in the walls
  • 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 through reduced carbon emissions
  • Made in the United States

How to Take Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Dallas, TX

ASTM and ACI have stringent standards for how to produce samples and what conditions to store them under. To ensure compliance, you must take the following steps:

  • The procedure must be performed by an ACI-Certified Grade 1 Concrete Field Technician.
  • The concrete cylinder must be a "representative sample," made up of two different samples from the middle of the concrete load.
  • The technician must note a precise reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the sample.
  • The technician must carry out a slump test and an air test.
  • The cylinders must be placed 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 specimen, you must maintain it in a concrete curing box until you can conduct in-field tests and send samples to a lab in Dallas, TX to measure 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 specimen can withstand.
