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 demonstrate that your concrete:

  • Won't fall victim to fissures, technically known as crazing
  • Has the appropriate durability
  • Has the needed water tightness
  • Is resistant to erosion
  • Has better volume stability
  • Is impervious to freezing and thawing

While the technicians who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the Sacramento, CA lab the test is sent to will be accountable for a substantial percentage of the accuracy of the testing, their readings will not have any value if the reliability of the sample is put at risk because the concrete was not stored correctly. You need to know the precisely the conditions the samples were stored at. That's why we design and manufacture every concrete curing box to have 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 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
  • Data storage
  • 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
  • Eco-friendly manufacturing through reduced carbon emissions
  • Manufactured in the USA

Correct Procedures for Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Sacramento, CA

ASTM and ACI have strict standards for how concrete samples are taken and stored in a concrete curing box. To make sure you are complying with regulations, 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 characteristic of the concrete put in the slab, made up of two different samples from the middle of the concrete load.
  • The technician must note an accurate reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the sample.
  • You must perform a slump test and an air test.
  • The specimens must be placed in a concrete curing box where they will not be agitated and are kept within 60°F and 80°F at all times.

After 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:

  • 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: In a lab, the concrete will be placed in a device that places increasing amounts of pressure on each end of the concrete until it cracks or breaks.
