Benefits of Concrete Curing Testing in Raleigh, NC

According to a guidelines set out by ACI Committee 308, curing is "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 storing your samples in a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Raleigh, NC, you can test to establish that your concrete:

  • Won't develop fissures, also referred to as crazing
  • Has the required strength
  • Has the required water tightness
  • Is not susceptible to erosion
  • Is resistant to shrinkage, which causes cracks
  • Is not susceptible to freezing and thawing

While the technicians who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the Raleigh, NC lab the test is sent to will be responsible for a large part of the accuracy of the testing, their work will not have any value if the reliability of the sample is endangered because the concrete was not stored correctly. You need to know the precisely the conditions the specimens were stored at. That's why we design and manufacture every concrete curing box to have 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
  • Exterior controls and readings so the box can remain closed
  • No overheating
  • Digital controls
  • Reading resolution: 0.5°F
  • Control setpoint: 73°F
  • Data storage
  • 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
  • Manufactured in the United States

How to Take Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Raleigh, NC

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

  • 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 at least two samples.
  • The technician must take a precise reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the specimen.
  • The worker must perform a slump test and an air test.
  • The cylinders must be kept in a concrete curing box where they will not be disturbed and cannot exceed 80°F or go below 60°F.

Once you have a concrete sample, you must maintain it in a concrete curing box until you can conduct both on-site and laboratory tests in Raleigh, NC to test 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 cylinder can hold up against.
