Alarm History and Troubshooting for Accelerated Carbonation Test

The accelerated carbonation test is an essential method for evaluating the durability and resistance of concrete structures. By subjecting concrete samples to controlled accelerated carbonation conditions, this test provides valuable insights into their long-term performance. However, during the testing process, it is crucial to monitor the control system of the accelerated carbonation chamber for any potential issues or alarms. In this article, we will explore the importance of alarm history and troubleshooting in the control system of an accelerated carbonation chamber.

The alarm history and troubleshooting capabilities within the control system of an accelerated carbonation chamber play a crucial role in maintaining optimal test conditions and ensuring the reliability of concrete testing. By thoroughly analyzing alarm data and diligently following troubleshooting protocols, engineers and operators can swiftly identify and rectify any operational issues that may arise. Proactive troubleshooting not only enhances the overall quality and accuracy of the testing process but also improves its efficiency and reduces potential downtime.

The control system of an accelerated carbonation chamber is designed to maintain precise and consistent test conditions throughout the test duration. It consists of various sensors, actuators, and monitoring devices that work together to ensure optimal testing conditions. The control system constantly monitors and records critical parameters during the test, such as temperature, humidity, and CO2 concentration. One of the significant features of a reliable control system is the ability to maintain a comprehensive alarm history.

This feature empowers engineers and operators to not only review past alarms but also delve into the root causes of recurring issues. By analyzing this historical data, they can uncover patterns and trends that may highlight potential weaknesses or areas for improvement within the control system. This actionable information allows for the implementation of targeted measures to rectify and prevent problems, ultimately enhancing the overall performance and reliability of the testing process.

# DI Failure Description Cause and Explanation of Failure Troubleshooting Explanation
1 OVER TEMPERATURE The set temperature is too high causing the machine to not work. Please confirm that the temperature you set is between 15℃ ~ 30℃
2 DRY BURNING Humidification barrel is short of water, The heating wire is still heating. There will be an alarm because there is no water in the humidification barrel.
4 CM OVERLOAD The current of the compressor and refrigeration system is too large, causing the machine to not work properly. Please check whether the current of the compressor and control circuit is too large.
6 LACK OF WATER When there is lack of water in the water tank, the machine will automatically alarm. Please check whether the water tank is short of water or whether the water tank is leaking.
8 CM LOW PRESSURE Machine failure alarm caused by low pressure in the compressor system. Please check whether the pressure value of the compressor is too low.
