Load of the Week | Automatic Superplasticizer

by Verifi

In today’s Load of the Week, Verifi adjusted the slump of the concrete by making automatic superplasticizer additions.

Verifi made three automatic superplasticizer additions to adjust the slump from 4 inches after batching to the 8-inch target. Instead of one large addition, Verifi’s unique algorithm monitored the superplasticizer performance in this particular load and precisely adjusted the three additions to reach but not exceed the target slump. Verifi used the time from batching to arrival on site to make this slump adjustment so that the concrete was ready to pour upon arrival, even though the contractor was not ready.
