Advantages to Concrete Curing Testing in San Diego, CA

According to a report from ACI Committee 308, curing refers to "the process by which hydraulic-cement concrete matures and develops hardened properties over time." How the concrete cures and the accuracy of the tests will go a long way in the success of your project. By keeping your samples in a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in San Diego, CA, you can test to verify that your concrete:

  • Won't develop cracks, also referred to as crazing
  • Has the correct strength
  • Has the appropriate water tightness
  • Is impervious to abrasion
  • Has better volume stability
  • Is resistant to freezing and thawing

While the technicians who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the San Diego, CA lab the test is sent to will be accountable for a substantial percentage of the accuracy of the testing, their reports will be for naught if the reliability of the sample is endangered because the concrete was not stored correctly. You need to know the precisely the temperature and humidity the samples were stored at. For that reason, we design and manufacture every concrete curing box to have a control resolution of 1°F. Other features include:

  • 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 the box can remain closed
  • 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

Correct Procedures for Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in San Diego, CA

ASTM and ACI have stringent standards for how concrete samples are taken and stored in a concrete curing box. To make sure you are obeying guidelines, 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 the same concrete as it was poured.
  • The technician must make not of the temperature of the ambient air and the concrete.
  • You must carry out a slump test and an air test.
  • The samples must be kept in a concrete curing box where they are kept at a fixed temperature range between 60°F and 80°F.

Once you have a concrete sample, you must keep it well-preserved in a concrete curing box until you can conduct both on-site and laboratory tests in San Diego, CA to take a reading of the concrete's compressive strength:

  • In-Field Test: A small device, known as a Schmidt hammer, fires a spring-loaded mass with a defined energy against the surface and reads how elastic or strong the concrete is.
  • Laboratory Test: In a lab, the concrete will be placed in a machine that places increasing amounts of pressure on each end of the specimen until it cracks or breaks.
