Benefits of Concrete Curing Testing in Nashville, TN

According to a guidelines set out by ACI Committee 308, curing is "the process by which hydraulic-cement concrete matures and develops hardened properties over time." How the concrete cures and the accuracy of the tests is vital to the success of your project. By keeping your samples in a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Nashville, TN, you can test to demonstrate that your concrete:

  • Won't fall victim to crevices, also known as crazing
  • Has the required durability
  • Has the correct water tightness
  • Is impervious to wearing down
  • Is not susceptible to shrinkage, which causes cracks
  • Is impervious to freezing and thawing

While the experts who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the Nashville, TN lab the test is sent to will be accountable for a considerable percentage of the accuracy of the testing, their readings will not be accurate 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 exact conditions under which the samples were kept. 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 carrying
  • Exterior controls and readings so the box can remain closed
  • No overheating
  • Digital controls
  • Measuring resolution: 0.5°F
  • Control setpoint: 73°F
  • Data storage
  • 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

Correct Procedures for Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Nashville, TN

ASTM and ACI have strict instructions for how to produce samples and what conditions to store them under. To ensure you are complying with guidelines, you must take the following steps:

  • The procedure must be conducted 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 make not of the temperature of the ambient air and the sample.
  • The technician must run a slump test and an air test.
  • The specimens must be placed in a concrete curing box where they are kept at a fixed temperature range between 60°F and 80°F.

After the slump and air tests, you must conduct in-field tests and send samples to a lab in Nashville, TN to test 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: In a lab, the concrete will be placed in a device that places increasing amounts of pressure on each end of the specimen until it cracks or breaks.
