NAUTILUS™ optimizes the cement hydration process – it utilizes the heat of hydration and the moisture from the fresh concrete. It combines the advantages of air circulation and heat recovery technology. This guarantees a continually uniform environment for curing.
consistent curing temperature equal to +/- 1 °C
and relative humidity equal to +/- 3%
with an air velocity 1 m/s
maximum curing humidity controllable based on curing temperature
reduced hardening duration, less breakage
consistent colors, a substantially reduced risk of efflorescence
no condensation on chamber surfaces
5% cement reduction and a 1 to 2 year ROI
The goal of every producer must be to produce the lowest
cost product, available within 24 hours, with consistent and bright colors, without efflorescence and without damage to corners and edges.
The newly commissioned Van Dyk Stene concrete products plant in Vredenburg in the Western Cape is saving the company 30% on its total cement input costs. The state-of-the-art plant is a showcase for the total concrete solutions available from Pan Mixers South Africa (PMSA), Johannesburg, South Africa and their curing technology partner, KRAFT CURING SYSTEMS, Lindern, Germany.
