Müller-Steinag Element AG is the Müller-Steinag Group's sales company for precast elements made of concrete, polymer concrete and lava concrete. A precast plant of an impressive size built on a greenfield site at the Rickenbach location in the Canton of Lucerne, the group's headquarters, was put into operation in 2013. Just two years elapsed between the award of the contract and the commissioning of the fouraisle, 186 metre-long and 66 metre-wide precast plant, whose support structure is, of course, made of precast concrete elements. The plant, in which the most diverse precast concrete elements are produced, was equipped with a state-of-the-art concrete batching plant, from which all manufacturing areas in the hall are supplied with concrete. Eltecna AG from Zurich, a long-standing supplier and partner of the Müller-Steinag Group, was commissioned to supply and install the complete mixing equipment, from the silo feeding systems to the mixers. As the exclusive representative of Teka mixers in Switzerland, Eltecna installed two Teka THT high-performance turbine mixers as the heart of the new mixing plant. The Müller-Steinag Group also relied on this type of mixer and Eltecna's expertise for the extensive modernisation of the concrete production in two of the three concrete block lines at the Rickenbach site. Here, too, THT high-performance turbine mixers have been producing high-quality facing concretes for some time (detailed report in CPI 4/2016) and consideration is being given to switching to further Teka turbine mixers within the group.
