There are a number of techniques that are employed in the process of concrete cutting to achieve either wall or slab concrete from the large incisions and shaped incisions. For the process to be efficient and safe, it should be carried out by experienced people. Concrete cutting requires professionals thus companies have taken the opportunity to offer such services. The intended application of the cut concrete is what will determine the method used in concrete cutting. Another factor that influences the technique employed in the process of concrete cutting is the quantity of concrete to be cut.
Advances in technology contribute a great deal to the techniques employed to aim at making the process as precise as possible. When precise and circular cuts are wanted, then core drill motor and bit is effective. They are heavy duty drill motors and come in a variety of sizes and mounting systems that allow for them to be used safely for vertical and horizontal cuts. For small projects, there are hand -held motors that are applicable. The power source for the motor can be air, electric or even hydraulic. The cutting can be dry or wet and the bits are available for both processes. For vertical cutting, flat saws which are also known as slab saws are the most applicable. Since there are heavy and light duty projects, the flat saws are available different models ranging from electric to hand-held. The cuts are made by propelling or pushing the saw along a flat surface. For cutting openings in concrete foundations, lowering foundation elevation and full wall removal concrete wall sawing is used. The procedure is often highly skilled and is dustless.
Construction sites is the most common place to apply concrete cutting. A variety of projects apply concrete cutting such as parking garages, dams, sewerage treatment plants and many more. It’s vital to ensure quality before concrete pouring for any project in the attempt to ensure its safe for the particular project. Cool water is an efficient way to cool concrete and one of the ways to achieve this is by using a water chilling plant. The water in the chilling plant are required to remain cool and therefore to avoid warming it up, a cold water tank is used to store the water to be used in the hydration process. To keep the concrete cool and increase the efficiency , ice can be added into the mixing drum. The most sure way to ensure you maintain a uniform amount of moisture in the aggregate is by cooling it with air. Post pour cooling is also an essential part of the concrete cooling process and entails a network of pipes which runs the chilled water in the poured concrete.
