Benefits of Concrete Curing Testing in Raleigh, NC

Based on a a definition offered by ACI Committee 308, curing is "the process by which hydraulic-cement concrete matures and develops hardened properties over time." You need to be sure that your concrete is curing properly for the best results in your project. By using a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Raleigh, NC, you can test to establish that your concrete:

  • Won't degrade and have fissures, technically known as crazing
  • Has the appropriate strength
  • Has the required water tightness
  • Is not susceptible to wearing down
  • Is resistant to shrinkage, which causes cracks
  • Is not susceptible to freezing and thawing

While the people who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the Raleigh, NC lab the test is sent to will be accountable for a substantial percentage 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 kept at a temperature and humidity that did not adhere to regulations. 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 specifications are:

  • In-field protected storage of concrete test specimens and reliable heating
  • Comes with comfort grip no-crush handles for easy transport
  • No need to open to see temperature reading or set point of thermostat
  • The plate is thermally protected from overheating
  • Digital controls
  • Measuring resolution: 0.5°F
  • Control setpoint: 73°F
  • Ability to preserve data
  • 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 United States

Correct Procedures for Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Raleigh, NC

ASTM and ACI have strict regulations for how to make samples and store them. To ensure you are following guidelines, you must follow a specific procedure:

  • The procedure must be carried out by an ACI-Certified Grade 1 Concrete Field Technician.
  • The concrete cylinder must be characteristic of the concrete poured on-site, made up of two different samples from the middle of the concrete load.
  • The technician must note a precise reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the sample.
  • The worker must carry out a slump test and an air test.
  • The cylinders must be stored 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 conduct both in-field and laboratory tests in Raleigh, NC to test 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 cylinder can withstand.
