IACDS Webinar: Types of testing for slurry management in concrete cutting


The IACDS Working Group on Slurry Management is preparing a publication that compiles relevant information about slurry management in concrete cutting from constructors and manufacturers from all over the world.

The aim of this document titled “Guide about Slurry Management for concrete drilling and sawing” is to be a reference for this area and deal with matters such as working guidelines, health and safety recommendations, and the correct procedure of sludge management.

Since slurry management in concrete drilling and sawing is an extremely vast area of investigation, IACDS has prepared a related webinar titled “Types of testing for slurry management in concrete cutting,” which will take place on February 24th at 3:00pm (CET).

In this session, the coordinator of the Working Group, Ms. Erin O’Brien, from CSDA, and Mr. Ryan Klacking, from SLURRYMONSTER, will talk about the Guide and will introduce the issue of how is slurry generated and managed in concrete cutting, apart from describing the different kinds of testing that are available for this specific purpose and explaining their uses.
