Application of radio waves in heating fresh concrete


Enhancing early or formwork stripping strength

 


CO2 emissions, energy costs and cement consumption in the precast industry can be lowered substantially with the aid of high-frequency heat treatment, an innovative procedure for the controlled heating of fresh concrete. This procedure generates a second internal heat source, alongside hydration heat, by employing radio wave technology (the operating principle is similar to that of microwaves) during the concrete curing process, thereby accelerating hardening considerably.
