42 • September 2017 Curing Equipment Round Up INNOVATIONS REPORT CURING LPHW Curing System Engineered to lower the net carbon footprint of finished concrete and economize production, the VSG-2 Curing System features: natural gas, propane or fuel oil firing options; low gas pressure requirements from minimum 20 mbar to maximum 200 mbar; low electrical power requirements; space saving design; virtually silent oper- ation; and, low maintenance design. The LPHW Curing System uses high efficiency, low/ medium pressure hot water boilers and thermal fluids contained within a carefully designed network of pipes linked to a centralized pump to generate accurately controlled radiant heat in applications that require little or no airflow. It runs on natural gas, various fuel oils or LPG, and is shipped in either a pre-modified con- tainer or on a skid to save time and cost in set-up and commissioning. The LPHW can be fitted with optional maturity Curing and Control Software, which optimizes the time and energy used in curing various products, in addition to providing detailed operational log for quality control purposes. Along with the LPHW and VSG-2 Curing models, CDS offers Retractable Canopy Systems to provide portable protection for concrete products during the curing pro- cess. Canopies can be custom made to meet the specific production requirements, and are easily deployed using either a freestanding telescopic frame or suspended from a permanent overhead rail structure. The canopies' complete seal and insulation properties retain heat and help maintain an optimal curing environment. Beyond product and form or bed protection, company engi- neers note, the canopies provide temperature control and prevent heat loss during the curing cycle; deploy simply and quickly; and, are easy to store. — CDS Inc., 973/641-5663; VSG-2 Curing System CDS INC.
