SmartRock para Control de Calidad de Hormigón

Madurimetro SmartRock para Control de Calidad de Hormigón



El Giatec SmartRock® es un sensor que permite determinar la resistencia a la compresión estimada, basado en la madurez de hormigón, al registrar la temperatura del hormigón fresco durante el proceso de fraguado. Este método es el único recomendado por la NCh170:2016 para determinar la resistencia real del hormigón.



El SmartRock® se coloca dentro de los elementos de hormigón (instalándolo en la barra de refuerzo) antes de verter la mezcla, este sensor una vez activado, almacena la temperatura del hormigón en obra en intervalos de tiempo. Las mediciones continuas se graban en la memoria del SmartRock® y se pueden descargar en cualquier momento en la obra, durante el fraguado y endurecimiento del hormigón usando la aplicación móvil en un smartphone o tablet.



El seguimiento continuo de la temperatura del hormigón es requerido por la norma NCh170: 2016 como un método de aseguramiento y control de calidad para distintas etapas tales como Colocación, Curado, Desmolde y Retiro de puntales. Adicionalmente el sensor SmartRock® facilita los requerimientos de trazabilidad exigidos en la norma NCh170:2016 para un correcto proceso de QA/QC.

Choosing the Right Concrete Thermocouple for Your Jobsite

What Is a Concrete Thermocouple?  In layman’s terms, a thermocouple is an electric device that measures temperature, essentially making it a type of thermometer. That being said, it is not the kind of thermometer you would use to measure your body temperature when running a fever, or to deduce what the atmospheric weather is today, or as an in-built mechanism within your refrigerators and heaters. So, what exactly sets a concrete thermometer apart?  It takes two metals to form a thermocouple, both of which are wires that are welded, crimped, or twisted together, and It takes two metals to form a thermocouple, both of which are…

The Importance of Monitoring Temperature Differentials in Mass Concrete

Closely monitoring concrete temperatures is critical for ensuring proper strength development of concrete structures, regardless of their application or size. However, when it comes to mass concrete structures, temperature differentials also need to be considered due to the risk of a large difference between the relatively hot internal temperature and cool surface temperature. If a too-large temperature differential occurs, the surface of mass concrete will start cracking, which is detrimental to its durability and the length of its service life. What is Mass Concrete? Mass concrete…
