Benefits of Concrete Curing Testing in San Diego, 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." 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 Diego, CA, you can test to make sure that your concrete:

  • Won't degrade and have fissures, also referred to as crazing
  • Has the required strength
  • Has the needed water tightness
  • Is not susceptible to wearing down
  • Is resistant to shrinkage, which causes cracks
  • Is resistant to freezing and thawing

While the people who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the San Diego, CA lab the test is sent to will be accountable for a considerable part of the accuracy of the testing, their reports will not be accurate 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 are:

  • On job site protected storage of concrete test specimens and reliable heating
  • Comes with comfort grip no-crush handles for easy carrying
  • No need to open to read or set temperature
  • The plate is thermally protected from overheating
  • Digital controls
  • Measuring resolution: 0.5°F
  • Control setpoint: 73°F
  • Ability to retain data
  • Xtreme technology uses an insulated lid and extra insulation on the interior
  • 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 Diego, CA

ASTM and ACI have strict standards for how to create samples and store them. To ensure compliance, you must follow a specific procedure:

  • The procedure must be carried out 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 take an accurate reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the sample.
  • You must run a slump test and an air test.
  • The samples must be kept in a concrete curing box where they will not be perturbed and cannot exceed 80°F or go below 60°F.

After the slump and air tests, you must perform 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, measures the rebound of a spring-loaded mass that is shot against the surface of the concrete.
  • Laboratory Test: In a lab, the concrete will be placed in a machine that places increasing amounts of pressure on each end of the concrete until it cracks or breaks.
