Why You Need Concrete Curing Testing in Memphis, TN

According to 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 keeping your samples in a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Memphis, TN, you can test to verify that your concrete:

  • Won't degrade and have cracks, technically known as crazing
  • Has the required strength
  • Has the needed water tightness
  • Is resistant to wearing down
  • Has better volume stability
  • Is not susceptible to freezing and thawing

While the workers who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the Memphis, TN lab the test is sent to will be responsible for a considerable portion of the accuracy of the testing, their reports 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 temperature and humidity the samples were stored at. For that reason, we design and manufacture every concrete curing box to have a control resolution of 1°F. Other aspects include:

  • In-field protected storage of concrete test specimens and dependable heating
  • Comes with comfort grip no-crush handles for easy transport
  • Exterior controls and readings so the box can remain closed
  • The plate is thermally protected from 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
  • Produced in the USA

How to Take Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Memphis, TN

ASTM and ACI have stringent standards for how to create 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 the same concrete as it was poured.
  • The technician must note an accurate reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the specimen.
  • You must carry out a slump test and an air test.
  • The specimens must be kept in a concrete curing box where they will not be disturbed and never go below 60°F or above 80°F.

Once you have a concrete sample, you must maintain it in a concrete curing box until you can carry out both on-site and laboratory tests in Memphis, TN to measure 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: A compressive strength lab test will apply force to each end of the cylinder until it breaks to see how much pressure the cylinder can withstand.
