Accelerated Concrete Curing

Concrete mould curing for pre-stressed units
Our patented technology lends itself very well to concrete curing applications, especially where accelerated initial curing is required. The most important applications are pre-stressed units, such as lintels, T-beams, slabs, hollow-core panels and railway sleepers. In cold weather, these can take several days to reach the required strength for de-moulding, so heat is applied to provide a 24-hour production cycle.

The heating systems can also be used to accelerate curing of other concrete moulds, using bespoke heating and insulation panels.

Traditional heating methods include steam and kerosene burners. However, these techniques are extremely energy inefficient and are not environmentally friendly or safe. In addition, they are difficult to control and may result in lower long-term strength or micro-cracking of the concrete units.

The Limpet Heating concrete curing system overcomes these issues in a number of ways, most notably using a fraction of the energy.

Microprocessor Accuracy
Featuring a microprocessor built within the heater block

Allows users to override the internal set-point, monitor the spare temperature sensor port and control the unit externally

Different Modes
A Limpet can also be used in “Primary” or “Secondary” mode

The user can monitor the heater’s status using a simple linked-together healthy signal
Control panel interior with Limpet MegaLimpet control unit and two control loops (one for each mould, so that they can operate independently)
