ASTM C 94, “Standard Specification for Ready Mixed Concrete” states that concrete must be unloaded within 90 minutes of contact between water, cement, and aggregates, or before the mixer drum has revolved 300 revolutions—whichever comes first. This limit, however, may be waived by the purchaser if the concrete has sufficient workability that it can be placed without the addition of water. In hot weather, the 90-minute limit may be reduced by the purchaser.
