Simple Ways to Increase Concrete Cooling Efficiency


Cooling is an important part of large-pour concrete projects. The process of mixing cement aggregates with water actually causes a chemical reaction to occur. This is a primarily exothermic reaction, which means that the reaction gives off heat. For small-pour projects this isn’t much of an issue because the reaction is smaller — however, even with small-pour projects, the quality of the concrete can often be improved with concrete cooling — but for large-pour projects in which temperature can easily exceed 200°F efficient concrete cooling is a must. When concrete is poured at such a high temperature the end product…
