Advantages to Concrete Curing Testing in San Francisco, CA

According to a guidelines set out 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 keeping your samples in a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in San Francisco, CA, you can test to demonstrate that your concrete:

  • Won't fall victim to crevices, technically called crazing
  • Has the required strength
  • Has the necessary water tightness
  • Is impervious to abrasion
  • Is not susceptible to shrinkage, which causes cracks
  • Is impervious to freezing and thawing

In order to properly verify the above and have accurate readings, you You need to know the exact temperature and humidity under which the specimens were kept. That's why we design and manufacture every concrete curing box to have a control resolution of 1°F. Other aspects include:

  • On job site 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
  • The plate is thermally protected from 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 Francisco, CA

ASTM and ACI have strict standards for how to make samples and what humidity and temperature to store them at. To ensure compliance, 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 representative of the concrete put in the slab, made up of the same concrete as it was poured.
  • The technician must make not of the temperature of the ambient air and the sample.
  • The technician must conduct a slump test and an air test.
  • The cylinders must be placed in a concrete curing box where they will not be perturbed and never go below 60°F or above 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 Francisco, CA to test the concrete's compressive strength:

  • On-site 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 withstand.
