There has been no factor in the cement industry that has been of more benefit to the manufacturer of cement products than the steam curing rooms. It has proven to be the only method of curing blocks and ornamental work in the winter time when the weather is exceedingly cold, and has proven a great benefit to the manufacturer in exceedingly hot weather. There have been been advocated three or four classes of curing rooms, but only two classes have proven successful. Among the new developments may be named the construction of curing rooms, the hnadling of the steam, the adding of water to the curing rooms and the construction of a hood to cure large pieces of cement work where it has been impossible to convery same into the curing rooms.
