Advantages to Concrete Curing Testing in Rochester, NY

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." You need to be confident that your concrete is curing properly for the best outcome in your project. By keeping your samples in a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Rochester, NY, you can test to make sure that your concrete:

  • Won't develop crevices, also called crazing
  • Has the necessary durability
  • Has the correct water tightness
  • Is resistant to erosion
  • Has better volume stability
  • Is resistant to freezing and thawing

While the workers who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the Rochester, NY lab the test is sent to will be responsible for a considerable percentage of the accuracy of the testing, their work will mean nothing if the reliability of the sample is put at risk because of a poor concrete curing box. You need to know the exact conditions under which the specimens were kept. For that reason, every Darwin Chambers portable concrete curing box has 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 see temperature reading or set point of thermostat
  • The plate is thermally protected from overheating
  • Digital temperature controller
  • 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
  • Eco-friendly manufacturing through reduced carbon emissions
  • Made in the United States

How to Take Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Rochester, NY

ASTM and ACI have strict instructions for how concrete samples are taken and stored in a concrete curing box. To make sure you are obeying regulations, you must follow a specific procedure:

  • The procedure must be performed 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 sample.
  • The technician must perform a slump test and an air test.
  • The cylinders must be kept 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 perform in-field tests and send samples to a lab in Rochester, NY to test the concrete's compressive strength:

  • On-site Test: A Schmidt hammer fires a spring-loaded mass at the concrete in order to measure the value of the rebound.
  • 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.
