Advantages to Concrete Curing Testing in Washington, DC

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." You need to be sure that your concrete is curing correctly for the best outcome in your project. By using a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Washington, DC, you can test to establish that your concrete:

  • Won't fall victim to crevices, technically referred to as crazing
  • Has the required durability
  • Has the correct water tightness
  • Is resistant to erosion
  • Has better volume stability
  • Is resistant to freezing and thawing

In order to properly verify the above and have accurate readings, you You need to know the precisely the conditions 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 specifications are:

  • In-field 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
  • No overheating
  • Digital temperature controller
  • Reading 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 USA

How to Take Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Washington, DC

ASTM and ACI have strict standards for how to produce samples and store them. To ensure compliance, 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 characteristic of the concrete poured on-site, made up of two different samples from the middle of the concrete load.
  • The technician must record the temperature of the ambient air and the concrete.
  • The worker must perform a slump test and an air test.
  • The cylinders must be placed 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 maintain it in a concrete curing box until you can perform both on-site and laboratory tests in Washington, DC to take a reading of the concrete's compressive strength:

  • On-site Test: A Schmidt hammer fires a spring-loaded mass at the concrete in order to measure the value of the rebound.
  • 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 hold up against.
