Corpus Christi's iconic Harbor Bridge required mass concrete for 500-foot tall towers. High humidity and ambient temperature required extreme temperature control to avoid complications with the concrete in the forms. NITROcrete™ enabled the project to meet temperature specifications without concrete cooling tubes, saving time and expense.

Hot weather concreting isn't for the faint of heart. We'd hazard a hypothesis that profanity on project sites goes up proportionally with ambient temperature. In short: hot weather concrete is difficult. A simple-sounding yet familiar problem, but one with a complicated explanation. Stubborn hot weather concrete causes challenges for a variety of interconnected reasons.

“We often receive questions about the effects of liquid nitrogen on aggregates,” said Eric Van Dixhorn, NITROcrete VP of Engineering. “Arizona was invested in confirming the safety of pre-cooling methods of delivering liquid nitrogen to the aggregate — which differs from what people historically think of when they imagine LN for concrete cooling...
