Where to Buy the Best Concrete Thermometers

Where to Buy the Best Concrete Thermometer

If you want to evaluate and select from the plethora of concrete temperature thermometers available in the market, this is the right blog for you. Before we dive into suggesting some of the best concrete curing thermometers we have come across, let’s go over a few essential questions. Learn in this blog about the importance of testing for concrete temperature, why it may prevent structural damage, and how opting for the correct concrete thermometer may enhance and simplify your project.  Concrete Temperature: Too High or Too Low? The ASTM C1064-86 prescribes that concrete temperature must remain between 80.1oF – 95oF or between 26.7oC – 35oC. However, this can change according to project specifications. If the concrete mix is poured at a higher internal temperature, it runs the risk of encountering several problems. One of those is that your concrete could crack due to quick and premature evaporation. Alternatively, pouring the concrete mix at a temperature lower than 25oF could make the concrete freeze. This could result in multiple types of problems, including the concrete becoming severely brittle.  All in all, if your concrete temperature is too high or too low, your project is vulnerable to damages that are time-consuming, expensive, and simply avoidable.  Click here to read more about why concrete temperature testing is important during extreme weather! Commercial Concrete Thermometers Below, we review a few concrete temperature thermometers that may be ideal for implementation in your next project. SmartRock® The concrete testing device manufacturer Giatec offers…


How do Concrete Thermometers Differ from Wireless Sensors?

Concrete temperature testing is a fundamental aspect of ensuring the quality, strength, and durability of concrete structures. It helps construction professionals make informed decisions during the construction process, leading to safer and more reliable built structures. Over the years, the technology for concrete temperature testing has changed for the better. The market offers a variety of devices, and in this blog, we want to explore the basic differences between the classic concrete thermometer and wireless sensors.What Is a Concrete Thermometer?A concrete thermometer is a specialized thermometer designed for measuring the temperature of concrete during various stages of construction. They work particularly well during the curing process. Concrete thermometers are placed directly within the concrete. They are either embedded during construction or inserted into small holes drilled into the concrete. Thermometers provide temperature readings at various depths within the material. Their main purpose is to measure temperature alone and they often require physical access to retrieve temperature data, especially if they lack wireless capabilities. Data may need to be manually recorded at the site or through data loggers, which also require manual work.What Is a Wireless Concrete Sensor?Similarly to concrete thermometers, wireless sensors are meant to be embedded in the concrete….

How to Install Sensors in Concrete Samples for Maturity Calibration: A Comparative Guide

Concrete maturity is a crucial metric in the construction industry, providing insights into the strength and readiness of concrete for critical operations (i.e. stripping forms, stressing cables, etc.) The installation of sensors in concrete samples for maturity calibration is a technical process that varies depending on the region and the type of concrete sample used. In this blog, we will explore the differences in sensor installation procedures for 4×8-inch cylinders, 6×12-inch cylinders, and concrete cubes.Understanding Concrete MaturityBefore delving into the installation process, it’s important to understand what concrete maturity is. It is a measure of how much a concrete mix has cured over time, factoring in the temperature history of the concrete. This is crucial because the strength of concrete is directly related to its maturity index which is typically a unit of degree hours or equivalent days.Sensor Installation in Concrete Samples1. 4×8 Inch Cylinders (Canada vs. US)In Canada, 4×8-inch cylinders are filled in three layers, and each layer is rodded 25 times using a standard tamping rod. Sensors are typically inserted after the second layer is rodded. Contractors should approach the sensor placement with care at the center of the cylinder, both vertically and horizontally, to accurately measure the…
