APPLICATIONS FOR MATURIX

Gaining insights into the concrete curing status is valuable for every construction project. The applications where our clients benefit the most from Maturix are extensive projects where timing and project management are key, the external influences are particularly challenging and the strength development can not be foreseen:

Marius Røksland, Kruse-Smith
"Using the Maturix system is very intuitive and easy. I have been working with Maturix for almost a year I find it easy to use and it makes my quality control much faster than before I had Maturix to help me. It saves me a ton of work and time both in terms of collecting data and managing data."

Søren David Skov, LM Byg
"Using traditional data loggers was too cumbersome and time-consuming for us. Thus we only used it on the critical points of the structure. Maturix makes the monitoring very easy!"​

Gregory Pereira, SCP Geotek
"I am able to share my data with the other people involved in the pours. Once I start the sensors, they get a notice and can follow the data in real time. We are all looking at the same user-friendly screen!"

Monitoring and controlling the strength development for foundations and floors enable a faster, safer and more efficient workflow. 

Based on data, the optimal time to remove the formwork is determined and micromanagement onsite can align with the concrete status.

How?

Temperature is measured directly inside the structure using a thermocouple which is connected to a transmitter. The Maturix transmitter sends the data wirelessly to the cloud, the software automatically calculates maturity and estimates strength. The results are accessible from your phone or computer from anywhere in real-time in the Maturix web portal.

Benefits

MASS CONCRETING

Subways, dams or other projects with high demand on the concrete structure as large foundations require mass concreting. When pouring mass concrete, it is important to monitor the curing process to control not only the overall strength development but also to follow the internal temperature differences and act accordingly, as cracks and an overall low product quality can result in enormous repairing costs.

Mass concreting constructions

How?

Using several devices with type K thermocouples enables to cover also vast concrete elements. The devices are set up in different positions to measure temperature and calculate the strength development. Alarms are set up in the software to further monitor the internal temperature differences to take action before cracks occur. 
Monitoring the curing ensures high quality and a safe construction process while reducing unnecessary precautions and redundant waiting time and.

Benefits

When building bridges, controlling the concrete curing process is important. Fast but safe formwork removal is key for an efficient project where weather and wind conditions strongly influence the project. Traditional methods often do not reflect the same curing process and monitoring in the structure enables optimization of the workflow based on data. 

Benefits

How?

Using several sensors to monitor the curing process of a bridge at different positions. This enables controlling the curing process and also reducing the risk of high internal temperature differences which can cause cracks. With the wireless data transmissions, on-site visits are reduced as the data is available through the web portal.

PRECAST PRODUCTION

Using a smart monitoring system for each precast element enables to demould faster, while ensuring the required strength has been reached. Thus, the productivity for each lane is enhanced.
The option to integrate the heating system can cut energy costs further.
 
  • Demould faster
  • Improve project management
  • Make data-based decisions

How?

Monitor the strength development at each element (hollow core element, prestressed elements, beams, slabs or elements requiring post-tensioning).
You receive real-time insights into the curing development accessible on your phone or computer. The option to set up a dashboard in the facility further improve the operation cycles and boost efficiency.

Benefits

Following the relative humidity status inside a structure in concrete enables to optimize the timing of when to start with flooring. This makes sure that the concrete has dried enough that flooring or coating can be applied with no risk of damage or maintenance. 
The flexible probe can be either embedded or reused.
 
  • Optimize timing to start with the flooring
  • Improve project management
  • Reduce risk of damage
 
The solution is in the final testing phase and will be available in 2021.
