Vapor is used in the precast concrete industry for the accelerated curing of precast products including concrete pipe, prestressed structural concrete, concrete block, ornamentel concrete, cast stone, and assorted precast concrete products.
For the densely populated state of New York the Tappan Zee Bridge, crossing the Hudson river north of the city of New York constitutes a vital artery for residents, commuters, travellers and commercial traffic. The bridge opened to traffic in 1955 and was at that time designed for a humongous number of 100.00 vehicles per day.
In late 2013, Vancouver, BC topped the list of most congested cities in North America. On average, peak hour travel time was 36% longer than during non-rush hours.
Precast Systems Incorporated/Caledonia Concrete Cooperation has recently opened up their new production facility in Allentown, New Jersey, USA. Since the formation of the company in 1981 they have specialized in the manufacture of precast and prestressed concrete products.
