Incorrect Testing Practices New York

Conducting other tests improperly can also cause rejection of in-spec concrete at the jobsite in New York. Have your drivers learn the correct methods for sampling concrete, measuring slump and air content, and making and curing strength-test specimens in the field. They're your first line of defense against needlessly rejected loads of concrete.

They're your first line of defense against needlessly rejected loads of concrete.Some improper practices are:

  • Excessive prewetting, leaving surplus water in the container
  • Sampling from the form into which the concrete has been placed
  • Failure to remix the concrete sample in the sample container before starting the tests
  • Failure to use an aggregate correction factor
  • Use of the pressure meter to measure air content
  • Failure to firmly support the base plate
  • Base plate not large enough, allowing high-slump concrete to spill over the edge of the plate
  • Base not level
  • Dampening the slump cone and base leaving a puddle of water on the base
