Benefits of Concrete Curing Testing in Philadelphia, PA

According to a a definition offered by ACI Committee 308, curing refers to "the process by which hydraulic-cement concrete matures and develops hardened properties over time." How the concrete cures and the accuracy of the tests will go a long way in the success of your project. By using a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Philadelphia, PA, you can test to establish that your concrete:

  • Won't develop fissures, technically called crazing
  • Has the correct strength
  • 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 Philadelphia, PA lab the test is sent to will be responsible for a substantial part of the accuracy of the testing, their reports will mean nothing 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 specimens were kept. That's why every Darwin Chambers portable concrete curing box has a control resolution of 1°F. Other features are:

  • On job site protected storage of concrete test specimens and dependable 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 controls
  • Reading resolution: 0.5°F
  • Control setpoint: 73°F
  • Ability to preserve data
  • 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
  • Produced in the United States

Correct Procedures for Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Philadelphia, PA

ASTM and ACI have stringent standards for how to create samples and store them. To ensure compliance, you must follow a specific procedure:

  • The concrete must be made, cured, and tested by an ACI-Certified Grade 1 Concrete Field Technician.
  • The concrete cylinder must be a "representative sample," made up of two different samples from the middle of the concrete load.
  • The technician must record the temperature of the ambient air and the sample.
  • You must perform 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.

In addition to the slump and air tests, you must carry out in-field tests and send samples to a lab in Philadelphia, PA to take a reading of the concrete's compressive strength:

  • On-site 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.
