German Concrete Curing specialist, Kraft Curing, displayed its highly innovative Concrete Match-Cure System. Targeted for the Indian precast/prestress producers, the concrete Match-Curing Systems is expected to deliver higher levels of efficiency in the production of concrete bridge girders and other infrastructure products.

Said Daniel Rafter, Sales/ Engineering, Kraft Curing Systems GMBH, “With the current fast pace of infrastructure construction in India, there is a need for testing solutions to help determine the ideal demoulding time. This helps producers get the very best utilisation rates from their molds and forms.

The ‘Match-Cure’ laboratory-based test cell with inbuilt heating and air circulation systems to replicate the same curing conditions present in the casting bed. This allows the concrete cube samples to be cured in the very same conditions as the element, allowing the producer to determine the ideal de-stressing or de-moulding time.

“The Match-Cure Systems is altogether a separate laboratory-based analysis system. While our vapor curing systems solely aids in concrete curing, it can be said that the Match-Cure System will complement the functioning of the curing systems, making our offering more comprehensive in deriving the desired product quality,” said Daniel Rafter. “We can offer the Match-Cure Systems along with our other curing systems as standalone or on turnkey basis.

Kraft also have approximately 35 low-pressure vapor (steam) generators in operation in India. He informed that the company is working on reducing the components coming from Germany and giving the option to customers to manufacture them locally. One of the components in the curing systems, which the company is looking to provide locally, is vapor piping for steam distribution. “We will assist the customers in making the pipes locally and provide them technical support with the required drawings. However, we will continue to procure other components like the vapor generators, control systems, vapor valves, and sensors from our facility in Germany.”

The vapor piping designed by Kraft Curing use a pressure drop algorithm. It utilizes various diameter pipes and outlets in order to ensure even heat and humidity distribution. The insulated main distributor pipe outside the curing area reduces heat loss and provides a safe working environment.

The Kraft direct fired vapor generator works in conjunction with temperature sensors and motorized vapor control valves to accelerate concrete strength gain and increase concrete quality with controlled addition of heat and humidity. The vapor coming from the generator is a mix of hot air, vaporized water, and combustion products and is produced in a direct-fired process.

The vapor mixture is the ideal medium for efficient curing concrete. “We see a rising demand for our accelerated vapor curing systems with producers which manufacture I-girders, tunnel segments, and drainage products. We are looking to market the solutions to contractors and precast companies alike,” said Daniel.
