Benefits of Concrete Curing Testing in Long Island, NY

According to a a definition offered by ACI Committee 308, curing refers to "the process by which hydraulic-cement concrete matures and develops hardened properties over time." You need to know that your concrete is curing correctly for the best outcome in your project. By using a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Long Island, NY, you can test to demonstrate that your concrete:

  • Won't fall victim to cracks, also called crazing
  • Has the necessary durability
  • Has the correct water tightness
  • Is resistant to erosion
  • Is resistant to shrinkage, which causes cracks
  • Is impervious to freezing and thawing

While the people who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the Long Island, NY lab the test is sent to will be accountable for a large part of the accuracy of the testing, their work will not be accurate if the reliability of the sample is endangered because of a poor concrete curing box. You need to know the precisely the temperature and humidity the specimens were stored at. That's why we design and manufacture every concrete curing box to have 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 carrying
  • No need to open to see temperature reading or set point of thermostat
  • No overheating
  • Digital controls
  • Measuring 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
  • Manufactured in the United States

How to Take Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Long Island, NY

ASTM and ACI have stringent instructions for how to create samples and what humidity and temperature to store them at. To ensure compliance, you must follow a specific procedure:

  • The procedure must be conducted 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 take an accurate reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the specimen.
  • You must conduct a slump test and an air test.
  • The samples must be kept 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 sample, you must maintain it in a concrete curing box until you can conduct in-field tests and send samples to a lab in Long Island, NY 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 cylinder until it cracks or breaks.
