Why You Need Concrete Curing Testing in Memphis, TN

According to a report from 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 Memphis, TN, you can test to demonstrate that your concrete:

  • Won't fall victim to fissures, also called crazing
  • Has the needed durability
  • Has the required water tightness
  • Is resistant to abrasion
  • Has better volume stability
  • Is impervious 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 readings will be for naught if the reliability of the sample is put at risk because the concrete was kept at a temperature and humidity that did not adhere to regulations. You need to know the precisely the conditions the samples were stored at. That's why every Darwin Chambers portable concrete curing box has a control resolution of 1°F. Other aspects include:

  • On job site protected storage of concrete test specimens and dependable heating
  • Comes with comfort grip no-crush handles for easy carrying
  • No need to open to read or set temperature
  • No 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 on the siding
  • 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 USA

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

ASTM and ACI have strict 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 characteristic of the concrete put in the slab, made up of the same concrete as it was poured.
  • The technician must note a precise reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the concrete.
  • You must conduct a slump test and an air test.
  • The samples must be stored 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 cylinder, you must keep it well-preserved in a concrete curing box until you can carry out in-field tests and send samples to a lab in Memphis, TN to take a reading of 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: In a lab, the concrete will be placed in a machine that places increasing amounts of pressure on each end of the concrete until it cracks or breaks.
