QUADRIX® accelerates the curing process through the controlled addition of heat and humidity. This guarantees a continually uniform environment for curing. The system allows high air volumes at a low flow rate. The result is an improved, smooth surface.
consistent curing temperature equal to +/- 1 °C
and relative humidity equal to +/- 3 %
with an air velocity ≤ 1 m/s
curing climate controllable per production requirements
significantly reduced hardening duration, less breakage
consistent colors, a substantially reduced risk of efflorescence
no condensation on chamber surfaces
approximate 10% cement reduction with less racks and production pallets
challenge in the Wittenheim plant, which Heinrich & Bock had owned
since 1998, was to create a consistent day-to-day climate in the large
volume chamber throughout the year in order to achieve consistent early
strength and product quality.
In the early summer of 2013 a well-known concrete block manufacturer from Central Europe ordered seven Quadrix® II concrete curing systems from the German company KRAFT CURING SYSTEMS. The newly developed Quadrix® II from KRAFT ranks among the highest quality and most effective concrete curing systems worldwide.
On the occasion of the anniversary, the company Bruk Bet expanded their paving block production facility at the location in Kielce by a concrete curing system. With this step the company intends to ensure the high quality and wide variety of designs.
To keep up with market demand for high quality products, Kilsaran Group (located in Dublin, Ireland) opted for KRAFT's Quadrix® Accelerated Concrete Curing Systems to get the job done. KRAFT specially designed two curing systems, providing high early strength that matched that of three week, air cured concrete.
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.
Accelerated concrete hardening system ensures consistent climatic conditions in a single atmosphere chamber throughout the year
"The impossible has become possible – now we can produce in three shifts." Those were the words of the regional director for production, Mr. Paweł Bruź, following the commissioning of the KRAFT CURING Quadrix® System in the Libet S.A plant in Kalisz, Poland.
Northfield Block, an Oldcastle company with locations throughout Illinois, has been in business since 1949. It has built a reputation on aesthetically pleasing and quality products. In 2005, Northfield Block began construction of a big board plant on a green-field site in Morris, IL.
“With CityStoneDesign, we emphasize new exciting products as well as product quality through extraordinary aesthetics paired with technological excellence and functionality”, says Peter Bozek, CityStoneDesign Project Manager for Europe with current locations in Germany, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
