Advantages to Concrete Curing Testing in Phoenix, AZ

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." 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 Phoenix, AZ, you can test to demonstrate that your concrete:

  • Won't degrade and have fissures, technically referred to as crazing
  • Has the correct durability
  • Has the required water tightness
  • Is not susceptible to abrasion
  • Is impervious to shrinkage, which causes cracks
  • Is resistant to freezing and thawing

While the technicians who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the Phoenix, AZ lab the test is sent to will be responsible for a large percentage of the accuracy of the testing, their reports will mean nothing if the reliability of the sample is endangered because of a poor concrete curing box. You need to know the exact temperature and humidity under which the samples were kept. That's why we design and manufacture every concrete curing box to have a control resolution of 1°F. Other features include:

  • In-field protected storage of concrete test specimens and reliable 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
  • Reading 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
  • Low CO2 insulation for reduced carbon emissions from foam manufacturing
  • Produced in the United States

How to Take Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Phoenix, AZ

ASTM and ACI have stringent instructions for how concrete samples are taken and stored in a concrete curing box. To make sure you are complying with regulations, you must take the following steps:

  • The procedure must be performed by an ACI-Certified Grade 1 Concrete Field Technician.
  • The concrete cylinder must be characteristic of the concrete poured on-site, made up of at least two samples.
  • The technician must note a precise reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the sample.
  • You must carry out a slump test and an air test.
  • The specimens must be stored 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 in-field tests and send samples to a lab in Phoenix, AZ 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 sample can hold up against.
