Advantages to Concrete Curing Testing in Tampa, FL

According to a report from ACI Committee 308, curing is "the process by which hydraulic-cement concrete matures and develops hardened properties over time." You need to be sure that your concrete is curing correctly for the best outcome in your project. By storing your samples in a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Tampa, FL, you can test to make sure that your concrete:

  • Won't develop fissures, also referred to as crazing
  • Has the necessary durability
  • Has the appropriate water tightness
  • Is resistant to abrasion
  • Has better volume stability
  • Is not susceptible to freezing and thawing

While the workers who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the Tampa, FL lab the test is sent to will be responsible for a substantial part of the accuracy of the testing, their reports will mean nothing 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 every Darwin Chambers portable concrete curing box has a control resolution of 1°F. Other aspects include:

  • In-field protected storage of concrete test specimens and reliable 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 controls
  • Reading 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 because of reduced carbon emissions
  • Made in the United States

How to Take Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Tampa, FL

ASTM and ACI have strict standards for how to create samples and store them. To ensure you are complying with guidelines, 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 a "representative sample," made up of two different samples from the middle of the concrete load.
  • The technician must make not of the temperature of the ambient air and the specimen.
  • The technician must carry out a slump test and an air test.
  • The samples must be placed in a concrete curing box where they will not be perturbed and are kept within 60°F and 80°F at all times.

Once you have a concrete specimen, you must keep it well-preserved in a concrete curing box until you can carry out in-field tests and send samples to a lab in Tampa, FL to measure 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 cylinder until it cracks or breaks.
