Advantages to Concrete Curing Testing in Madison, WI

Based on 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 will go a long way in the success of your project. By storing your samples in a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Madison, WI, you can test to make sure that your concrete:

  • Won't develop fissures, technically known as crazing
  • Has the required strength
  • Has the required water tightness
  • Is resistant to wearing down
  • Has better volume stability
  • Is resistant to freezing and thawing

While the experts who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the Madison, WI lab the test is sent to will be accountable for a considerable percentage of the accuracy of the testing, their readings will not have any value if the reliability of the sample is put at risk because the concrete was not stored correctly. 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 aspects are:

  • In-field protected storage of concrete test specimens and reliable heating
  • Comes with comfort grip no-crush handles for easy transport
  • Exterior controls and readings so you do not have to open the box
  • No overheating
  • Digital controls
  • Reading resolution: 0.5°F
  • Control setpoint: 73°F
  • Data retention: Yes
  • 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
  • Manufactured in the United States

How to Take Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Madison, WI

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

  • 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 two different samples from the middle of the concrete load.
  • The technician must make not of the temperature of the ambient air and the sample.
  • You must run a slump test and an air test.
  • The samples must be kept in a concrete curing box where they will not be disturbed and cannot exceed 80°F or go below 60°F.

After the slump and air tests, you must carry out in-field tests and send samples to a lab in Madison, WI to take a reading of the concrete's compressive strength:

  • In-Field 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 withstand.
