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 Philadelphia, PA, you can test to demonstrate that your concrete: Won't degrade and have crevices, also known as crazing Has the necessary durability Has the correct water tightness Is not susceptible to erosion Has better volume stability Is impervious to freezing and thawing In order to properly verify the above and have accurate tests, you You need to know the precisely the temperature and humidity 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 specifications include: 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 the box can remain closed No overheating Digital controls Measuring resolution: 0.5°F Control setpoint: 73°F Data retention: Yes 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 Eco-friendly manufacturing because of reduced carbon emissions Manufactured in the USA How to Take Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Philadelphia, PA ASTM and ACI have stringent standards for how concrete samples are taken and stored in a concrete curing box. To ensure compliance, you must follow a certain procedure: The procedure must be conducted 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 take a precise reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the concrete. The worker must conduct a slump test and an air test. The specimens must be stored in a concrete curing box where they will not be agitated and are kept within 60°F and 80°F at all times. After the slump and air tests, you must carry out in-field tests and send samples to a lab in Philadelphia, PA to measure the concrete's compressive strength: In-Field Test: A small device, known as a Schmidt hammer, measures the rebound of a spring-loaded mass that is shot against the surface of the concrete. 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 specimen can hold up against.
