Benefits of Concrete Curing Testing in Sacramento, CA

According to a a definition offered 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 Sacramento, CA, you can test to establish that your concrete:

  • Won't develop crevices, also referred to as crazing
  • Has the needed strength
  • Has the necessary water tightness
  • Is impervious to wearing down
  • Has better volume stability
  • Is resistant to freezing and thawing

While the experts who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the Sacramento, CA lab the test is sent to will be responsible for a considerable portion of the accuracy of the testing, their work will be for naught 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 exact conditions under which the specimens were kept. For that reason, we design and manufacture every concrete curing box to have a control resolution of 1°F. Other specifications 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 read or set temperature
  • No overheating
  • Digital temperature controller
  • Reading resolution: 0.5°F
  • Control setpoint: 73°F
  • Ability to retain 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
  • Low CO2 insulation for reduced carbon emissions from foam manufacturing
  • Produced in the USA

How to Take Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Sacramento, CA

ASTM and ACI have stringent standards for how to make samples and what humidity and temperature to store them at. To ensure you are complying with guidelines, you must follow a specific procedure:

  • The concrete must be made, cured, and tested 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 take an accurate reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the sample.
  • The technician must perform 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.

In addition to the slump and air tests, you must perform both on-site and laboratory tests in Sacramento, CA to take a reading of 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.
