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 Minneapolis, MN, you can test to demonstrate that your concrete: Won't develop cracks, technically known as crazing Has the appropriate strength Has the correct water tightness Is impervious to erosion Has better volume stability Is resistant to freezing and thawing While the experts who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the Minneapolis, MN lab the test is sent to will be accountable for a large portion of the accuracy of the testing, their readings will not be accurate if the reliability of the sample is endangered 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 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 read or set temperature The plate is thermally protected from overheating Digital controls Measuring resolution: 0.5°F Control setpoint: 73°F Ability to preserve data 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 Low CO2 insulation for reduced carbon emissions from foam manufacturing Produced in the USA Correct Procedures for Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Minneapolis, MN ASTM and ACI have strict standards for how to make samples and what humidity and temperature to store them at. To ensure compliance, you must follow a certain procedure: The procedure must be carried out 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 take an accurate reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the specimen. The worker must run a slump test and an air test. The cylinders 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 cylinder, you must maintain it in a concrete curing box until you can perform both on-site and laboratory tests in Minneapolis, MN to test 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.
