Benefits of Concrete Curing Testing in San Antonio, TX

Based on a report from 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 is vital to the success of your project. By storing your samples in a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in San Antonio, TX, you can test to establish that your concrete:

  • Won't fall victim to crevices, technically called crazing
  • Has the required durability
  • 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 experts who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the San Antonio, TX lab the test is sent to will be responsible for a substantial portion of the accuracy of the testing, their work will mean nothing if the reliability of the sample is endangered because the concrete was not stored correctly. You need to know the exact conditions under which the samples were kept. That's why every Darwin Chambers portable concrete curing box has a control resolution of 1°F. Other aspects are:

  • On job site protected storage of concrete test specimens and dependable heating
  • Comes with comfort grip no-crush handles for easy transport
  • Exterior controls and readings so you do not have to open the box
  • 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 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
  • Made in the United States

Correct Procedures for Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in San Antonio, TX

ASTM and ACI have stringent regulations for how to produce samples and what conditions to store them under. To make sure you are complying with regulations, you must take the following steps:

  • 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 at least two samples.
  • The technician must make not of the temperature of the ambient air and the concrete.
  • You must run a slump test and an air test.
  • The cylinders must be kept in a concrete curing box where they will not be agitated and never go below 60°F or above 80°F.

In addition to the slump and air tests, you must conduct in-field tests and send samples to a lab in San Antonio, TX to measure 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.
