Programmable accelerated curing tanks

ASTM C684 | BS 1881:112
General description
General description
Introduction
This test method covers procedures for curing concrete specimens under conditions intended to accelerate the development of strength. Three versions available:
55-C0194/D model which cover the ASTM C684 (Procedure A, warm water method) and BS 1881:112 for 35-55°C hot water method.
55-C0194/DV similar to the above, but covering steam method. 
55-C0194/E model, covering both hot water and steam method.


Description
This special curing tanks have been designed for hot water curing or steam curing in accelerated strength concrete. The interior is made from stainless steel. The electronic programmer can control up to four test cycles with different thermal gradients and curing time to a defined temperature value for a complete automatic curing cycle. The control panel include a 28 column thermal printer.
