Match-Cure

Match-Cure

Quality Control System

MATCH-CURE quality management technology allows you to keep an eye on the quality of your concrete elements and make sure they reach the required degree of strength in order to allow for the earliest possible detensioning or demoulding.

Functions

Match-Cure

  • Function 1

    Match-Cure

    TEST CYLINDERS filled with fresh concrete taken from the same batch used to produce the concrete element, are placed into the Match-Cure insulated enclosure. AutoCure® measures and controls the test cylinder temperature via a sensor and heater (optional cooler) in the enclosure inside the laboratory; accurately duplicating the temperature of the concrete element outside.

  • Function 2

    Match-Cure

    SENSORS – It is necessary to measure the temperature of the concrete or the concrete curing environment using temperature sensors. Also available are combination temperature sensors with equally important integrated relative humidity probes to measure the relative humidity of the concrete curing environment. We can provide these sensors wired or WIRELESS! Find more information on the sensors here: Datasheet Sensors

  • Function 3

    Match-Cure

    TEMPERATURE DATA from both the concrete element and the test cylinder is/are transmitted to the AutoCure® control system and compared to one another. If the temperature of the concrete elements is greater than that of the test cylinder, the heating system in the enclosure is activated in order to “match” the concrete element temperature.

  • Function 4

    Match-Cure

    EXHAUST VENTILATOR – Should the temperature of the concrete element fall below the temperature of the test cylinder (due to an abrupt decrease in the ambient temperature or as a result of the curing cover being blown away due to wind), an exhaust ventilator in the insulated match-cure enclosure is activated to reduce the temperature.

  • Function 5

    Match-Cure

    COOLING SYSTEM (optional) – In colder regions, where concrete elements may tend to have a lower temperature, an optional cooling system provides for a more controlled temperature reduction (down to 5°C or 40°F) in the enclosure. An unexpected cooling event may trigger an alarm, warning the user about the drop in temperature. This alarm is also available remotely (to a smart divide or PC) with the Access Anywhere option (see next function slide).

  • Function 6

    Match-Cure

    ACCESS ANYWHERE – Monitor the curing process conveniently and remotely: ACCESS ANYWHERE allows quality control/management personnel to remotely monitor the concrete curing process of both the concrete elements and the cylinder from anywhere with an internet connection.

  • Function 7

    Match-Cure

    AUTOCURE® CONTROL – In addition to managing the operation of the Match-Cure system, AutoCure® may be used to control the operation of your Vapor Generator, ThermalCure® System, boiler or other heating source.

  • Function 8

    Match-Cure

    VAPORWARE V2® (optional) – For optimal control we recommend our compact VAPORWARE V2® quality management system, which measures, records, stores and prints all climatic curing data independently of a computer. The interface can be personalised by adding your own logo as well as the date, concrete batch number, element description and number, etc.!

    STORAGE RACKS for Match-Cure enclosures are also available.
