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. It’s important that the process of concrete cutting be carried out by professionals to make sure it’s safe and efficient. There are a number of companies that offer professionals who are skilled and experienced in this work. The intended application of the cut concrete is what will determine the method used in concrete cutting. Its vital to consider the amount of concrete required before deciding on the method to be applied.
Just like in other fields, technology is employed to ensure the process is simplified as much as possible. Core drill motor and bit is used when exact, smooth circular cut are required to make openings for either plumbing or electrical installations. 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 less demanding projects, a hand -held motor can be used. The machines are available with electric, hydraulic or air power sources. There bits are available for both wet and dry cutting processes. Flat saws are designed for vertical cutting. Since there are heavy and light duty projects, the flat saws are available different models ranging from electric to hand-held. The blades of flat saws are designed to cut through a number of materials and is pushed or propelled along a flat surface to make cuts. The uses of concrete wall sawing include cutting openings in concrete foundations, lowering foundation elevation and also full wall removal. The procedure is often highly skilled and is dustless.
Application of concrete cutting is mostly in construction sites. A variety of projects apply concrete cutting such as parking garages, dams, sewerage treatment plants and many more. To avoid problems associated with poorly produced concrete it’s important to check it’s quality before pouring it for the project. Concrete cooling is important and one of the best ways achieve this is by use of a water chilling plant. There is need to ensure the water used to cool concrete in the water chilling plant doesn’t heat up and therefore a water cooling plant is employed. Adding ice into the mixing drum could help in keeping the concrete cool and thus increasing the efficiency of the concrete hydrating process. The most sure way to ensure you maintain a uniform amount of moisture in the aggregate is by cooling it with air. Another part of the concrete cooling system is known as post cooling which runs chilled water through pipes in the poured concrete.
