Benefits of Concrete Curing Testing in Portland, OR

Based on a guidelines set out 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 Portland, OR, you can test to make sure that your concrete:

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

While the people who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the Portland, OR lab the test is sent to will be accountable for a considerable portion of the accuracy of the testing, their readings will not have any value if the reliability of the sample is put at risk because of a poor concrete curing box. You need to know the precisely the temperature and humidity the specimens were stored at. For that reason, every Darwin Chambers portable concrete curing box has 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 transport
  • No need to open to see temperature reading or set point of thermostat
  • No overheating
  • Digital temperature controller
  • Measuring resolution: 0.5°F
  • Control setpoint: 73°F
  • Ability to preserve data
  • 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
  • Made in the United States

How to Take Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Portland, OR

ASTM and ACI have strict standards for how concrete samples are taken and stored in a concrete curing box. To ensure you are following regulations, 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 a "representative sample," made up of the same concrete as it was poured.
  • The technician must make not of the temperature of the ambient air and the concrete.
  • 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.

After the slump and air tests, you must conduct both in-field and laboratory tests in Portland, OR to take a reading of 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 machine that places increasing amounts of pressure on each end of the sample until it cracks or breaks.
