Concrete Concrete Admixture

Sometimes, the most pivotal moment in concrete production and installation is actually during batching and transporting to the construction site. It is challenging to monitor the concrete quality and ensure it meets demanding requirements every step of the way.

Concrete Quality Control from Production to Delivery

The Sika Concrete Monitoring system with CiDRA SmartHatch transforms the way concrete quality is monitored and managed. This intelligent system goes beyond the standard to deliver not only real-time measurements of your concrete’s properties, but also to provide insights that lead to actionable decisions. Its seamless integration into your existing hatches ensures a perfect fit and an increase in operational efficiency.

CiDRA SmartHatch is not just a system; it’s a smart operational strategy embedded into your workflow. With the ability to watch and adjust concrete loads in transit, quality control personnel can act preemptively, ensuring every truckload meets the exacting standards required. This anticipatory approach not only maintains the integrity of the concrete but also upholds your reputation for quality.

Customer Testimonials

"Cidra’s SMARThatch has been a great addition to our company and the way we operate. We use it on several trucks in our fleet to do QC spot-checking on air percentage and temperature, giving us on the job information of what’s going on and also freeing up time to do more. The staff at Cidra are great to work with and always looking to improve the way SMARThatch works. The new feature of volume has also been very helpful, letting us know exactly how much our trucks are bringing back and not having to guess the amount. We highly recommend this system!" Adam Fariss, President, Finly Corporation
