Benefits of Concrete Curing Testing in Kansas City, MO

According to a report from ACI Committee 308, curing refers to "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 Kansas City, MO, you can test to verify that your concrete:

  • Won't develop fissures, technically called crazing
  • Has the required durability
  • Has the appropriate water tightness
  • Is not susceptible to erosion
  • Has better volume stability
  • Is impervious to freezing and thawing

While the experts who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the Kansas City, MO lab the test is sent to will be responsible for a large percentage 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 conditions the specimens were stored at. That's why every Darwin Chambers portable concrete curing box has a control resolution of 1°F. Other features are:

  • In-field protected storage of concrete test specimens and dependable heating
  • Comes with comfort grip no-crush handles for easy transport
  • No need to open to read or set temperature
  • The plate is thermally protected from overheating
  • Digital temperature controller
  • Reading resolution: 0.5°F
  • Control setpoint: 73°F
  • Data retention: Yes
  • 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
  • Low CO2 insulation for reduced carbon emissions from foam manufacturing
  • Made in the United States

How to Take Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Kansas City, MO

ASTM and ACI have strict instructions for how to create samples and store them. To ensure you are complying with guidelines, 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 the same concrete as it was poured.
  • The technician must take an accurate reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the concrete.
  • The worker must carry out a slump test and an air test.
  • The cylinders must be kept in a concrete curing box where they will not be agitated and are kept within 60°F and 80°F at all times.

Once you have a concrete cylinder, you must maintain it in a concrete curing box until you can conduct in-field tests and send samples to a lab in Kansas City, MO to measure the concrete's compressive strength:

  • In-Field Test: A Schmidt hammer fires a spring-loaded mass at the concrete in order to measure the value of the rebound.
  • 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.
