Why You Need Concrete Curing Testing in Omaha, NE

Based on 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 using a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Omaha, NE, you can test to establish that your concrete:

  • Won't fall victim to fissures, also called crazing
  • Has the necessary strength
  • Has the appropriate water tightness
  • Is impervious to wearing down
  • Has better volume stability
  • Is impervious to freezing and thawing

While the experts who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the Omaha, NE lab the test is sent to will be accountable for a substantial part of the accuracy of the testing, their readings will be for naught 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 exact conditions under which the specimens were kept. 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 carrying
  • Exterior controls and readings so you do not have to open the box
  • No overheating
  • Digital temperature controller
  • Reading resolution: 0.5°F
  • Control setpoint: 73°F
  • Data storage
  • 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
  • Low CO2 insulation for reduced carbon emissions from foam manufacturing
  • Produced in the USA

Correct Procedures for Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Omaha, NE

ASTM and ACI have stringent standards for how concrete samples are taken and stored in a concrete curing box. To ensure you are complying with guidelines, 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 representative of the concrete poured on-site, 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 placed 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 sample, you must maintain it in a concrete curing box until you can perform both on-site and laboratory tests in Omaha, NE to test the concrete's compressive strength:

  • On-site 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 machine that places increasing amounts of pressure on each end of the specimen until it cracks or breaks.
